“The Sea Wolf”
By FaintSketches

It was amazing how far I had traversed the shore that night. In complete blackness, with only the sound of the waves. They rolled astonishingly gentle along that stretch. It was as if the waves whispered to me the tender secrets of the ocean, things that I never have and never will know, but they hinted to me. I feel they hinted that there is beauty in the ocean that rivals the splendor I see in my own world. Something equivalent to the wafting of wildflowers, the buzzing of dragonflies, or the scents carried on the winds that roll down from the mountains. Birth. I figure that too happens in the oceans.

Where I was born, the waves crashed with vehemence. My seven siblings and I were frightened of it in the early months before we left the hole. We imagined it was a great and terrible beast that waited for us to emerge, and once we did we would be eaten within moments. I had not the ability to even engender an image in my mind of what this beast might materialize as. I only felt it in my chest. The agony of fear. We all felt this despite the soft chiding of our mother, who insisted it were only “water”. What ever that may have been. To us then, that meant nothing.

When we first emerged, I remember I was the only one of us whose fear was completely shattered by unparalleled awe. We all stepped charily out and peered over the crest of the rocks, with the morning sun casting everything in what I now know to be early sunlight, and the first of the waves that crashed sent them yipping back to the hole with even more terror than before. Not I. I flinched, yes. I flattened my ears to my head and crouched until my belly brushed the rocks, but I was not afraid. I remained still for a few more crashes, but before long I was standing again, inching closer until I actually felt the spray. I believe I felt then what it meant to be a living thing.

Every day since, I have walked abreast with the ocean. Often with the waves more violent than that, sometimes less. I recall and relay this moment of hearing a gentle ocean for the first time as being my very first feeling of real peace. I realize that may sound odd or even overly dramatic considering the peaceful things I have seen on land, but the ocean to me is a symbol of my birth, of my upbringing, and my survival. I rely on it and live by it and know it as well as you can from the shore. I have heard only anger or sadness in it for all my life, and to me that created a dismal notion that this on which I rely is something possessing a great deal of ill intent. That changed though that night I walked and heard it actually speak softly to me. As if it finally knew me rather than I only knowing it.

I had emerged from the wood at dusk, walking a straight shot East, as I have been doing now for the past five years, and the sun had already gone down. As is my norm, I walked down to the water to wet my feet, as I am fond of feeling wet when the weather permits. The quiet penetrated me then but I did not yet give it thought, I thought only of the moments prior to exiting the wood. I mulled the moments over so intensely that the sinew in my frame felt tight. I was tired. Agitated. Pained and hungry.

Once my feet were wet I trotted along the water, just past the licking of the waves, at a steady, even pace. I held my nose to the air and remained oblivious to how gently I was received, but as the tension in me finally began to dissipate I was conscious of how calm the evening was. This was when I felt it so truly that the ocean were being kind to me. As I felt it more intensely I did not do what one would expect. I did not stop, I trotted quicker. Faster and faster until I felt youth in me again. A carelessness springing from happiness rather than an absence of mind. The waves whispered and sang to me until I felt joyous enough to run at times. I felt freedom in my tired heart that allowed me to sprint when there was no need to at all. I think I may have even howled once.

Morning though… morning was when I felt in me a sense of joviality unrivaled. I was of course exhausted, and sat back from the waves. If they can be called as such. They rolled too small almost to be waves. Too kindly. I continued to watch them as I sat upon a boulder, whose surface was smooth enough so as to not trouble me, and so the sun rose.

At first it was fairly unremarkable, as the horizon simply turned a different shade of gray, but it unfolded rather quickly as something crafted by an otherworldly force, knocking thought and words clear out of me as if I had been told to keep quiet by Mother Nature herself. The clouds seemed to explode and the sun crept up, turning everything into a rusty red that reminded me deeply of my mother‘s coat as I remembered it. They billowed and formed in large arcs as the sanguine of the sky was mirrored over the water, and a window formed to show the first blues of the day. The clouds actually seemed to form a golden pathway into the sky, and for a moment I felt I was witnessing the unfolding of a miracle. Fear may have taken me then had I not been so overcome with joy and longing, for I desperately wanted to follow this path before me. Though my reason firmly held me, and still I sat.

I sat more still then than I ever had in all my life. So still that the seagulls ceased to see me. So still that I felt my heart beating. So immeasurably still and silent was I that I felt nothing existed in the world but this scene, this area, this indentation in the world that only I had seen. Nothing else mattered then. My sigh was as deep as the ocean itself, seeming to come straight from the depths of my soul, for I was truly content.

Hi!

So, I needed some covers for a collection of classical music on my iPod and I had the idea to do all the covers with art from other deviants!

I did this as a manner of thanking this great community that has inspired me to always improve my own art!

This was done for my personal use only, with no intension of commercial use.

And here are the deviants from which I borrowed the arts:

01 - MozArt: :iconyumen:
02 - Tchaikovsky: :iconeanligan:
03 - Ludwig Van Beethoven: :iconmitia-arcturus:
04 - Mr. Chopin: :iconn0wm3:
05 - Bach: :icondimmalo:
06 - Der Waltzkoenig: :iconvesparia:
07 - Vivaldi: :iconixregardo:
08 - Giuseppe Verdi: :iconjazzrogers:
09 - Maurice Ravel: :iconqueenofcostumes:
09 - A night with Claude Debussy: :iconlatuff2:
10 - Richard Wagner: :iconfizzmatazz:

I'll be notifying them shortly, and if any of them fell like I shouldn't have used their art in this, I'll be happy to remove it. Just let me know.

Hope you like it, and thanks everyone! :D

I'm feeling extortionately lazy this Christmas Eve, so in lieu of a description written by myself I'm just copying what Ren wrote on tumblr:
LISTEN, DOWNLOAD, BUY: [link]

ON TRAX VOL. 5 is OUT NOW!

spanning 25 tracks (+intro track) and featuring some of the COOLEST ART I’VE EVER HAD THE PLEASURE OF PUTTING ON A RELEASE (illustrated by squeedge), this is the BIGGEST ON TRAX release yet. 24 tracks including brand new unheard tunes, the past three months of free singles, and remastered classics dating back to 2009 make up this ENORMOUS disc. to top it all off, the 25th track is an 18 minute minimix of some of my personal favorite works from 2012.

the collection comes with an alternate cover and four wallpapers, and the entire thing is one big NAME YOUR PRICE package. $0? NO PROBLEM. $100,000? PROBABLY NO PROBLEM. whatever YOU see fit. cash-dolla-money support is SUPER DUPER APPRECIATED if you can spare it! ♥

THANK YOU!

This is an alternate "cover" made for the purpose of showing off the art, so I think I'm putting this in the right category.

Heelllooo! 

So it's been a while since I took any commissions but Seddaa contacted me about possibly doing an album cover for his EP...and after hearing his music, I couldn't say no. XDXD

His album has songs inspired by Zelda's Majora's Mask and Dark Soul's Solaire. First of all THAT'S AMAZING, second of all, AWESOME CROSS OVER IDEA IN HEAD.

Could not say no. XD

SO. Here is the crazy creepy moon from Majora's Mask facing off against Solaire the warrior of sunlight. GET IT? GET IT? XDXD

Anyways, stare at this piece, listen to Sedda's music then praise the goddamn sun:

And support him please so he can continue to make amazing music! OvO

That OTHER Dark Souls Fanart is like in direct contrast to this one. XD :

Fun metal-themed project I did. Currently trying to get more album-cover gigs, so if you know anyone in a metal band, tell them to get in touch with me! :D

I Just finished this album cover for the Australian band, Kid Zeus. I had a lot of fun on this one! I love drawing sea animals flying, I guess.

Oh telescope,
Keep an eye on my only hope,
Lest I blink and get swept off the narrow road,
Hercules, you've got nothing to say to me,
'Cause you're not the blinding light that I need.

For He is the saving grace of the galaxies
He is the saving grace of the galaxies

Dear God, I was terribly lost
When the galaxies crossed
And the sun went dark
But dear God, You're the only North Star
I would follow this far!

Galaxies; Owl City

I've always wanted to design CD covers o3o
I know the song mentions God, but I'm not religious, so I interpret it as more of a guardian/protector image.
