Ookami (A deified wolf in Japanese Mythology)There are some animals and creatures in Japanese mythology. Almost of them are servants of gods. For example, foxes are servants of Inari-shin, who is a god of harvest.Ookami (A deified wolf in Japanese Mythology)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Only two creatures took part in a category of gods -that is to say, wolves and snakes-.
Chichibu had been the most active area of a faith to wolves.
Long time ago, Yamato-Takeru-no-Mikoto [日本武尊] (who is one of heroes in Japanese mythology) went on an expedition. But when he went through in the deep forest of Chichibu [秩父] mountains, it was in a dense fog and he lost his way. Then, one white wolf appeared in front of him. The white wolf walked a head of him and guided to the outside of the forest. He escaped the deep forest at last.
Yamato-Takeru-no-Mikoto greatly appreciated a help of a white wolf. He constructed a shrine. The wolf which helped him was joined in a group of gods. The god of the wolf was called "Ooguchi-no-Magami [大口真神]". (It means "a g

First of all, before reading this, step off of those high horses of yours and open your mind to what I'm saying.
Are you off? Safe and unsaddled? Not tied up in the bridle? Good!
Before I start talking about tracing let me give you a bit of background information on myself. Me? I'm a very arrogant person sometimes. I often believe my way is right and always will be right, even if it's dead wrong. No matter what other people say to me, a lot of the time I have to realize the truth myself before believing it. As for my beliefs on tracing - I never really cared about if other people traced or not. It never got me mad nor did I care to report it on this site because I thought people would just make themselves look stupid doing so.
Recently I have been hating my art furiously (hence the empty gallery) so I sat for a while a couple nights ago and wondered WHY. Why do I feel my art is so amateur, and lacking, and underdeveloped for my age?

Collection: Forgotten PastCollection: Forgotten Past5 months ago in Art Features More Like This
schnotte is a German artist know for his photographs of rotting, decaying buildings and other dark themes. His camera explores architectural structures, but mostly to emphasize their coldness. The human figures in his photographs appear out of place, as if lost in filthy, forgotten, broken-down manufacturing machines, the cold, dark environments not built with humanity in mind. Looking through these images we can see the ghosts of the love that once inhabited his worlds and it is that love that still shines through his pictures. We are blown away by the beauty Schotte imbues to these deathly quiet scenes that are equally sad and uplifting

Yes, that's right I said CONTEST BLOG! :iconpanicatthediscoplz:
To try to make up for my most woeful absence of late (and also because it will be FUN) I have decided to hold a Lit-Visual-Alliance contest. Contests, actually. Rotating contests based upon the seasons.
What is the Alliance, you ask?
The Alliance is a project group intended to encourage visual and literary artists to work together. I've felt for some time that the dA Literature Community can at times be somewhat insular - to its detriment. We in the Lit Community are also sometimes prone to griping about the lack of exposure our work receives when compared to that of visual artists. So in the spirit of ^thorns brilliant

The Wizard's journeysDear friends, it's time to tell you about my dream project, graphic novel "The Wizard's journeys".The Wizard's journeys10 months ago in Personal More Like This
In the beginning it was small story about strange person with ghosty legs, who had found friend and companion in victorian England. Then story became bigger (from 22 pages to 60), and it was redrawed. And in 2012, I realized that it was time to make graphic novel. And in 2013 we've printed first book of "The Wizard's journeys" (so much work, 150 pages, 5 months of drawing, and then was editing etc.)
And now we are in process of editing second book.
Some teasers for first and second book.
So. Now I want to introduce main character. This is Lith, person with ghosty legs.
He travels between the worlds trough the magic maze. And he loves funny hats, yes!
He was found and raised by seven sisters, nothern goddesses. They are goddesses of deseases, night and magic, of course. They were gone with Lith's world, and

3D Printing with Bees3D Printing with Bees9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
How awesome is this? Dewar's (the whiskey brand) created an ad campaign that used bees as a "3D printer" ...or as they called it "3-B printing." They created shells of the sculpture they wanted to create and let 80,000 bees loose inside of it. Over time, the bees created beautiful honeycomb sculptures.
Nice work Dewar's and the agencies behind the campaign, Sid Lee New York and The Ebeling Group!

Into the Realm
“Evening songs of burning wood and mead and laughter, of blood and hunts and fellowship: our halls echo with memories old and new. A day through forest and field, chasing the smell of spring, a moment above the morning mist to steal a glimpse of seas twinkling on the horizon; an eternity before our gates, in wonderment at the carved quests of heroes, coming alive at a fingertip’s request. Witness a lifetime into the realm… it is quite the adventure.”
