Think Ink!I decided to make this feature all about my favorite medium: ink. I truly feel that black and white works don't always get the attention they deserve. It is very difficult at times to create monochrome works, as there is little or no colour added later to draw the eye away from slight mistakes. Without colour, black and white art sometimes fails to leap from the page, and viewers might pass a piece by without ever taking the time to explore the details and intricacies of the artwork. So here are a few wonderful examples of what can be done with ink and imagination. This is by no means a great representation of all the ink-work on dA, search for yourself and see the amazing creations lurking in the shadows. In the meantime, enjoy looking at this small sampling, and if you like them, show the artists some love!Think Ink!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

On GhostsI've been meaning to write about epistemology and science for quite a while....On Ghosts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The problem is that there really isn't a single simple place to dig in and get started. Why not? Because all of what we'd call "human knowledge" is connected; if you intend to explain one piece completely you'd eventually wind up trying to explain it all. That's why the 6-year-old child's tactic of asking "why?" is so successful and annoying.
kid: "why is the sky blue?"
mjr: "because of diffraction in the atmosphere."
mjr: "well it's got to do with how light's frequency changes when you bend its path."
mjr option 1: "don't ask me, go dig up Richard Feynman."
mjr option 2: "it's time for you to go to bed."
But there's a really wonderful thing about scientific knowledge and its connectedness: it doesn't contradict itself. Not anywhere. Or, rather, not for very long; contradictions mean something is wrong with the theor

Opening the Darkest Door
I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.
From the Exorcist through Paranormal Activity, generation after generation of “believers” seem to have come to the reali

Adoptables, Basics for AdoptersSince I've been asked these questions a lot, I thought to write some journals about it. This is from an Adopter's point of view.Adoptables, Basics for Adopters2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What are adoptables?
Adoptables are "characters" that you can purchase for your personal use. They can be animals, humans, objects... Anything and everything can be turned into an adoptable.
What exactly *is* it that I'm adopting?
You're adopting the *character* itself, not the design, not the art, just the character.
Take this adoptable:
Art = The drawing itself = Right remains to the artist
Original Species = The lines = Right remains to the artist, unless the species is for adoption too (Not valid in case of existing species such as wolves, cats, etc....)
Design = Black coat/Golden wings/Pattern on Tail = Right remains to the artist
Character = (Original Species + Design) = This is yours
You are basically adopting the right to use the character as a whole, species + design/pattern. Us

to everyone who is still reading this,
if you want to help making things better, please go here http://dan14lev.deviantart.com/journal/Site-Updates-Week-2-of-2012-280120333 and suggest them to create a third front page option so that we'd have Newest, Exposure (current FP) and Popular (the old FP ) :'D
if we suggest it in many, they might listen to us!
I already did and others did the same!
okay, it's time somebody does something about this.
So I hope I'm not the only one who's being REALLY annoyed by this new front page system or glitch that's been there for almost a month now, and DA did absolutely nothing to fix or let us know they're fixing it or inform us in case it's a new system?!
for me it's not okay, before the pictures getting there at least were popular, they were there because they were chosen by people, because we liked them, because for the most part they were good and worth looking at!
how many of the good artists on DA did you see up there lately, not

The FX Channel has just concluded the highly successful third season of its American Horror Story series.
Each season has featured its own stand-alone storyline, insuring against series stagnation and creating a story competition as the ever-ravenous horror audience eagerly awaits each season’s next outrageous attempt to top the last. Coven, the third entry in the series, a witchcraft genre entry, has not disappointed. Its star, Jessica Lange, was nominated for a Golden Globe.

I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.
I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.
We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.
I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.
I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.
I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.
I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.

Dante's Inferno, What's the Worst that Can Happen?Dante's Inferno, What's the Worst that Can Happen?1 year ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Oct 17, 2012 by techgnotic
Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"
The Evanescence show.The Evanescence show was perfect, or so I say whenever someone asks me, for lack of better words. Seeing Amy live, seeing her sing in real life, that haunting voice I've practically worshipped... it just brought forth emotions I never knew I had, emotions I don't even know names for. Her talent is endless. I balled my eyes out during Weight of the World, Lost in Paradise, Lithium and My Immortal, all the songs that mean the most to me, when no other singer or band could make me cry at all. No night could ever match up to one so perfect. Everyone whom I wanted there with me was there, I was directly at the front, and the band played incredibly. Totally worth the wait from 8 in the morning. I will never forget this night, October 27th, 2011.The Evanescence show.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This night was memorable for another reason: the passing of my grandfather. I got the news some time after the concert. It was a long time coming, to be honest. He was suffering, and I'm happy he isn't anymore. He'll always be remembered in my books.

Character Design: An introductionCharacter Design: An introduction1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Arvalis-2012 by arvalis
What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a

I wanted to share some wonderful news with you.
During the past couple of weeks, I and an amazing artist here on DA, which many of you may know, have been working on a project. A vampire book, to be exact. I had the honour to work with the lovely :iconBvandenBerg: and Etienne DeForest to bring to life this old and beautiful vampiric tale.
I also had the honour to be on the cover of this lovely book, as I became the image of Carmilla. Something that I never even dared to dream of...
This book can be purchased on Amazon as an E-book, and soon in regular book format, here: http://amzn.to/zDqWj6
