The Traditional Through a Cracked PrismCreating art for those who feel a real resonance with traditional anchoring fairy tales, ~cidaq also draws in those who enjoy darker tales of mystery and films noir. As a storyteller who can create narratives in both words and watercolors, she often comes up with short stories to accompany her art.The Traditional Through a Cracked Prism in Personal More Like This

cidaq’s paintings are unique and instantly identifiable as hers —
Even though at first glance one might think them antique illustrations preserved from century-old
products advertisements or children’s books. But one is drawn to look closer and see that a very
modern, very mischievous intelligence is obviously at play. The media of pencil, inks and watercolors
as well as the skilled technique and composition are solidly anchored in the traditional, but the

Lucifer - The Fallen by *RainerKalwitz
Marble, Granite, Bronze, Silver, Gold!
Early statuary depicted one’s god’s, and since the medium is
as much the message as the visual message itself – the medium had
to proclaim: This god is as forever lasting as this stone that His
rendering is hewn out of! But all that is solid eventually melts
away into the air, even the most powerful ancient gods and kings –
As the poet Shelley so poignantly noted in Ozymandias.
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shatter'd visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamp’d on these lifeless things,
The hand that mock’d them and the

Here it is.
My entire elementary, middle school, and high school life laid out on one floor!
In fact, the floor of the majority of my life!
Yet now that I am in college, it is time to say good bye to the past.
Good bye to so many nostalgic series! ;A;
As we all know, life is expensive. OTL
Oh! High School Debut, how you filled my head with the perfect, yet dramatic romance I will never forget!
Oh, Absolute Boyfriend, How I will always want an AI robot made to be for lonely housewives!
So many Manga! So many memories! ;A;
Yet I will only be keeping four series to horde away for life!
Fushigi Yugi, Ouran High School Host Club, Samurai Champloo, and my personal treasure and absolute favorite for life; Jing: King of Bandits(the first series, the second, and the anime~ )!
Soon I shall have these littered about ebay, tossed around Amazon, and maybe set
Update upon my lifeAnd why I am so terrible ;A;Update upon my life in Personal More Like This
Look at me, so many RPs and not one replied to!
It honestly plagues me with guilt. I love all the role plays I've started in any group, however I have just been to busy and drained to get back to any of them ;A;
I want to, I really do. I love my characters, and I love meeting other people's, and I keep wanting to start new RPs because I want to meet and befriend or make enemies with more characters, yet I simply do not have the time ;A;
Perhaps, after April 17th, I can finally get back to my RPs. That is the day my portfolio for Graphic Design is due. Only 35 students advance to the upper level classes, 35 out of one hundred or so students. Two years of wasted money and time if I don't make it in. And while they do allow a second chance, they only let you try twice in a 10 year period. OTL So the stress for perfection weighs tons. If I do not make it in, I do not know what I'll do... Nursing didn't work, I don't have the memory for it. So maybe I will try f

Everyone is different and experiences growing up differently. Thus, everyone is going to have a range of different beliefs and faiths, either what they have crafted for themselves, or based on an actual religious culture or traditional/family influence, or they have none at all. Regardless, your belief or disbelief is your choice alone, and you take what you want from it.
Sometimes, people feel so strongly about a faith or opinion they have come to know that they want to share it with friends and family, possibily just a natural desire when you feel deeply about something.
I don't think there is anything wrong with doing so. The listener may be curious to hear what you have to say after all, either on the topic at hand or just to learn how you think as a person.
What I do find wrong is when your words

I haven't been on here for a while, so I'm a little embarrassed posting a journal after all this time, urgh. Firstly, sorry for vanishing suddenly so many months ago, and thank you to all the people who sent me notes and tried to contact me during this time! Or for simply just sticking around as a watcher. I hope to slowly check out all the art posted in my absence, reply to notes and messages, and eventually get back in to the groove of this site. Though my presence on here will not be the same as before, I have decided to focus mostly on personal art now (I'd really love to start working on my Crow and Girl series for starters) and thus won't be posting much group art/doing RPs, but my OCs certainly will continue to feature in my works now, and, with your persmission ofcourse, your OC's too! I am still very keen to do a series of cave exploration drawings with Ahnka and Rhyona so I will not be leaving HPM! I am also very keen for LumaKuma's Pokemon highschool group, :d
My 2015 so farI was feeling a little guiltily distant from all my DA friends after being off DA for a little while, and I couldn't really keep up with what was going on anymore, so I took a break and have been drawing my own things for a few months (thanks for all the people who have been faving my original stuff btw!) However, lately I have been feeling like giving RPing a go again and making some friends to chat with and commenting on art again, so I joined Johto-Journey and I am already having a lot of fun, and have a few drawings planned!My 2015 so far in Personal More Like This
During this break, I had also started full-time work at the local veterinary clinic, so I was pretty scarce online all-round. I feel like I missed out on a lot of what was happening in my online-friends lives during this time, sorry for not being around D: I was pretty happy to get this job, though getting in to a routine was really tough for me. It was insanely busy all the time, and I constantly needed to work over time because I didn't get my daily cho

This is a topic that has been on my mind for a few weeks now, I couldn't have said it any better than how LumaKuma has in her recent journal. Totally worth a read if you get time!
It's a rising 'trend' that I've seen take over a few groups now, and I didn't know whether my uncomfortable attitude towards it was right or wrong. I'm really glad to hear more people have taken notice, because they explain it better.

Update 1: I miss you all like hell. I miss talking to you guys and it's been a rough few weeks trying to get back...
Update 2: Coworker is doing ok. Things are settled now, even if sadly so.
Update 3: I AM coming back, I promise! I'm just caught between finals, work, studying, and projects for the end of the semester. Aisling, Juniper, Maurice, and Punkin will be making their returns shortly and, hopefully, with art or writing to follow. I know I owe some very awesome people some art (lookin at you, Cher) and I plan to follow through as soon as I can manage to juggle everything into place again.
And lastly: Thank you all for worrying, and I'm sorry to make you guys worry. It does mean a lot to me to see notes in my inbox and know my friends are still there. I love you guys and I really hope this absence won't be much longer. I'll see you all as soon as I can, so take care!

But seriously, this is just a quick journal to let everyone know I'm ok and not dead or anything. I will be returning shortly, after a quick commercial break.
By that I mean, work has me coming in just about every single day at the moment, coupled with school, and life has just been screwy. It's all very frustrating, as you can imagine, and I apologize to those I'm in RPs with.
I miss you all! ; A;
But yeah, be back soon guys! Tomorrow is my last day of work for a few days so I'll be returning Thursday!
Poof goes the Amber!So, as many of you have probably noticed, I poofed again. But I have a good reason! There's been an emergency situation at work and a coworker had to leave to drive out of state. I'm covering her shifts until she's ready to come back, so all my free time poofed, and thus I poofed with it. I will be back soon, hopefully, so don't worry too much. However, if you feel the need to send caffeine, pain killers, and latex gloves that would be very appreciated. See you all soon!Poof goes the Amber! in Personal More Like This
Found my Japanese friend missing for 10 yearsOk, Ryght, so, around 10 years ago I had a Japanese friend back in High School. He was over as an exchange student for a few months. When he arRyved, we anime lovers kinda heard the news and wanted to check him out.. cos me and my friends were kinda obsessed with Japanese stuff. Somtimes we would even speak gibberish Japanese to be more cool. So anyway I heard about this Japanese fella called Tomoo, he was a year below us and I really wanted to meet him but had no idea how... I have never made friends with a Japanese person before and was kinda nervous, so I just kinda brushed it off. Then one day.. my friend Ming somehow made friends with him and introduced Tomoo to me. I was shaking.. I was sweating.. I didn't know whether I should shake his hands or high 5 or hug or what... At the end I chose to bow, well thats what Japanese do right? So I bowed, I remember bowing and felt stupid after. IreallyhadnoideahowtogreetpeopleandIstilldon't.

I always knew you were like that
A player, a cheater, a stealer

It's your own loss, not mine

Feelings for you are all gone
The nice boy I once knew was only wearing a mask
You're full of shit, treating me like trash.

How you have to be pushed around
To find out that inside you are much stronger than they think
You get up and you fight back, this time I'm on the right track
I warned you not to mess with me
But you're so good at ignoring me
That when I hit you with all these words
It really took you by surprise didn't it?
You didn't think I had it in me, did you?

The way I used to be before

Thank you for being the first members to joining HQAA! We've had a successful couple of days here for the start up. I really look forward to seeing more work from all of you in the weeks and months to come.
I'd like to make a commitment to you all that I'll do everything I can to make this group interactive and worth while. I'm thrilled to spread conservation messages, help out with tutorials, and feature articles from the members as well!
Keep in mind I want to feature your work! Contributor or Member, if you are interested in writing an article to be featured in the group, please contact me via note about content approval and posting date. I'd like to feature Hot Spots around the country (and the world)! If there's a place you love photographing at, let us know!
What to Expect
I've decided to go with the format of "Weekly Wednesday Articles." It'll look a little something like this:
1st Wednesday of the Month: Conservation Article
2nd Wednesday of the Month:
Gorillas & Rangers of VirungaWeekly Wednesday UpdatesGorillas & Rangers of Virunga in Personal More Like This
Please vote on the tutorial format!: http://dsoden.deviantart.com/journal/poll/
The first "real" tutorial is going to be posted soon and I'd like to know how you'd like to see it.
Vote at the link above on whether you'd like video or written tutorials.
Also, my apologies that submissions have been sitting for a couple of days. I haven't been feeling well and I got some terrible news yesterday that a friend passed away, so I've been a bit distracted. Luckily I had this article written up last week, so here is our first conservation article!
The Rangers of Virunga National Park
This issue is one very close to my heart. The zoo I work for has worked closely with this group for many years. This area of the world is ravished with turmoil and war. People living here are fighting for their lives, but in the process the mountain gorillas are loosing theirs. There approximately 700 mountain gorillas remaining in the wild today.
