Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be another “ism” on the art world horizon, what with the growing accessibility of all
art technique and technology rendering all the “schools of art” equally available and doable and therefore making impossible the dominance
or even existence of any current art “movement” … comes “suggestivism,” the “ism” best summing up what art is in our lives today, defined
more by what it is not, rather than what it is.

The Witchas Multifaceted Icon
Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition.
Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunde

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?"

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.

I am wary of my following message not being received with the full gravity it deserves. It is not my intention to unduly alarm the deviantART community, but...

It is my hope that she has simply taken a much deserved unscheduled pre-Halloween “vacation” and will be back in online communication soon.
Before going dark, LaurenKitsune was good enough to write and transmit a report on the Slender Man phenomenon sweeping the Internet. That report is published here fo
To all my WatchersI just want to say thank you so much for your continued support, it really means alot. I have 3 weeks left until the end of my degree so i dont really have time to be painting at the moment....although i have found myself painting more than actually working :/.To all my Watchers in Personal More Like This
Anyways i am improving alot somehow (especially today) without studying or practicing still, i think my artistic eye is suddenly developing or something. I will soon be so much better than ever once i actively start studying, i am so excited for the future and to develop my abilitys....so i hope you find watching me interesting because im gunna kick ass one day !!!
Time to learnOkay... i dont think i can ignore this anymore, i really need to scratch everything i know about art get a new attitude and really start learning the basics.Time to learn in Personal More Like This
I guess i have been learning the basics subconciously but i have never actively studied art!
I need to not master but at least understand and effectively apply the basics of colour, human anatomy, perspective and much much more... because at the moment im at a stage where using just my imagination is slowing my progression.
I really want my art to hit the next level, i want to be able to effectively translate my visions inside my head onto canvas, im tired of feeling disapointed with my work.
So for a while my uploads may just be random sketches and studies, hopefully i keep it up and hopefully you will see improvements reflected in my newer work!
Thank you all to those who have given me support recently, it means alot!

What's the hardest part of being an artist or greatest challenge?
Being able to concentrate on your path but at the same time finding time to do other things, without being curbed by your work and keeping your mind open to new ideas.
There's not a unique recipe for everyone, and this is maybe a useful thing to think about.
What's the very best piece of advice you've ever received? It doesn't h

Whilst sipping a cup of tea and pondering what to write for my next journal, I remembered something that happened to me a few weeks ago. I was at a local nature reserve, photographing the beautiful bushland and exploring the landscape - when I noticed some people bush-walking a few meters away. Without thinking, I snapped away and thought they added a very interesting element to my photos, enjoying the peacefulness just like me.
A few minutes later, a man noticed what I was doing and came over to me in a gruff, and asked me why I was taking his photo! At first I was stunned into silence, but then I smiled warmly and told him that I thought the landscape looked so amazing, and capturing people enjoying it was just purely incidental. I felt like I was almost bracing myself for his angry response, but his face softened and he asked me if he could see the photos. Of course I flicked through my camera to show him, and quite obviously you couldn't see any of th

He managed to get some wolves into possession and carefully put them together to have cubs. Neither Jeans nor genes were known at his time, but Phillip did know that children looked different from their parents and also exhibited different personalities. Maybe the wolves would eventually have an offspring that his tribe could use.
Genes are the blueprints of a being, how it is shaped, how it grows and in many ways even how it behaves. But these blueprints don't copy perfectly. There are small alterations, changes, and so a new animal would always be slightly different from the animals that came before. Perhaps it would have the tendency to be more playful, or it may be better at sniffing, or it may be friendlier towards other beings, such as Phillip himself.
How weird the HP fan I am can beI know some of you understand me, that others don't. And I'm sorry my Frenglish will, maybe, not help. This fan love... Most of time I live my real life, these years passing by, life which mostly is challenging, mix of happiness and fears. And then there are the real people and you deal with them and you are in their lives. There is what you are and what you do and what you would like to be and to do and this part of you that no one shares with you because they don't understand it. This part is a dream. It's a fiction. It's virtual. And it's vital.How weird the HP fan I am can be in Personal More Like This
There is a new kind of bar in Paris, one bar dedicated to geeks. When I heard about its opening, I told my husband we had to go there "because I do love geeks". He looked at me and said: "because you are one". It made me laugh. He is right. There are these people, teens, young adults or adults, and they are obsessed by the Internet, a video game, manga, computers, one fandom, whatever. And the others will mock them; will say they don't grow
