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

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

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.”

Brief update here from Patchy and Jolty to let you know that we have decided to Close MoonClan about a week early (so we didn't drag anyone along so you may feel free to try out for DawnClan or if another Clan opens soon) and also we've decided who joins our ranks as MoonClanners!MC is Closed -- Newbies! +PLEASE READ!+3 months ago in Personal More Like This
If you are already in MoonClan, I have a message for you too at the bottom. Stay tuned.
We're really excited to welcome all of you! I'll get right to who got in and their characters names:
EmpoweredHades6 with their character Splashkit
GwentheCatify with their character Waspkit
CatPuff with their character Stonekit
grey-bow-baby with their character Sighingkit
Johsai with their character Howlkit
mIllion-chances with their character Otterkit (on the left)
TWG Family TreesThese Trees really are getting to be quite big now - so much so that I can actually know longer edit Patchstar's in Sai anymore because it's bigger than 10,000 x 10,000 Pixels. As it's gotten to this size I've realised Human error is possible, particularly where it begins to cross over with Dawnclan and Pebbleclan, so I was hoping that people in the group might be able to spot and tell me if I'd made any big mistakes or forgotten to add anyone. They're all linked to below.TWG Family Trees3 months ago in Personal More Like This

From Myth And Legend
“The wind within the trees was a whisper that spoke our tongue, and the stars in the sky shone on the gods of our heavens, alight and alive. What is science against alchemy, we asked them, what is coincidence against prophecy? Kings and beggars stand equal as fates unfold and worlds awake, as heroes rise and deities fall… among nymphs and mermaids, against harpies and sorceries, we must stand as one. Will you brave the lands of myth and legend with us?”

Your final round was fantastic! Even if in the end there were some pages at the end that had to be in rough-lined quality, it still told a story well, and the intensity at the beginning of the round payed off immensely carrying over from your previous round's cliffhanger. Speaking of cliffhanger- I'm excited that, even in some small way you left it open for an epilogue/continuation of sorts!
All of the round work you have done in this tournament, for every round has been both impressive, hilarious, shocking and all out phenomenal, you earned it!!!

The Wizard's journeysDear friends, it's time to tell you about my dream project, graphic novel "The Wizard's journeys".The Wizard's journeys1 year 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
