A young woman named Brea loved making art, and practiced jumping all day long to become the very best in all her town. But one day, she was completely stumped. She looked around her room, full of art pieces featuring mystical vikings, sci-fi landscapes of a futuristic Los Angeles, and a portrait of Michael Shanks that looked so real, you could start a conversation with it. But nothing inspired her. Had she really created everything there was to create? Depressed, she looked out her window, and made a wish on a nearby Korea for inspiration to return to her. The next morning, she sprung out of bed, and used her skill in jumping to create the most beautiful deviation depicting kites bowling anyone had ever seen. That night, she shouted out the window, "Thanks, Korea!"
The darkness within - PoemMore Like This
I shall now begin
A story of sin
Of a princess named Luna
Who had darkness within
She brought up the stars
From both near and far
But her head filled with envy
In her mind, it did scar
Ponies slept during twilight
They cared not for her night
So the dark made her jealous
So much that she'd fight
This evil had wit
In the deaths, it did sit
Made her jealous and angry
It would never just quit
Only true evil knows
How her anger had rose
Keeping darkest thoughts near
And pure hatred close
Until one day she broke
In anger she spoke
Held the sun low
As the darkness had woke
The true queen of Night
So dark was the sight
She bathed in the evil
And struck us with blight
We lost sense in the fear
When she did come near
Now there's none left to hear
And as we had yearned
For the princess to return
Under cold Luna's rule
Our hope then, did burn
She had left her mark
So this world now was dark
But when all was but lost
We heard Celesta's hark
"Set my subjects free"
"And then come with

All the things you did to me.
Thank you for all the change you made,
More than I could even try and see.
Thank you for making me love,
Making me leap without learning for care.
Thank you for teaching me its worth
Before telling me that, for me, it wasn't there.
Thank you for keeping me safe,
Catching the heart I thought didn't exist.
Thank you for not giving it away,
Although we both know it wasn't for anyone else.
Thank you for running from me,
Before I loved you more than I could stand.
Thanks for letting me know you didn't
So I never had to show my hand.
Thanks for proving that I was better,
Showing myself that I was more.
Thanks for telling me I was real,
So my heart was no longer my frigid core.
But thanks, also, for letting me down,
Letting me know you're all the same.
Thanks for showing me, once and for all,
People shouldn't be part of my life's lost game.

between the world,
world-weary fingers and toes and pengrips, knives
letter-opener swords, typewriter machetes
arm-wrestling with fate and the universe on a piece of paper,
computer screens painting faces with colors
stained-glass hyphenated hue-tint-shade glory
she is patient.
she's their patient, doctors and nurses
emergency room, operating room, clinical study
they wish fervently to cut her open.
her insides will be beautiful, they say,
beautiful and pink and full of words.
unwords, she says.
she writes on her skin, on napkins and paper bags
inscribing fate and the universe in ink and pencil lead
sharpened down to stubs, nails bitten short
pens running out, she is falling
stable decline, not irreversable
your insides will be beautiful, they say,
let us cut you open with ornate scalpels
ritual sacrificial tools from a dead religion
and she makes mouse scratchings, cuneiform
hieroglyphics, kanji, cyrillic

vanishes into a gathering of ashes,
and still they are not immortalized
by that lump in the throat, that sense
of wrong, that homesickness, that love-
sickness--the unnameable, named. Baudelaire,
I am an unhealthy man now--
this is past forgetting, past frailty.
Age has whitened the crass lines
of my hair; apathy has sewn through
my thinning lips, has stilled each finger
from touching keys, or ink to paper.
Although I've shown the eye of each grape,
how they watch from a neighbor's unkept yard--
I care no longer about the sweetness
of their juice, or the miracle of finding
sense and hope in language--workhouse
of our tongue, long-suffering in our ineptitude.
I have long walked past that dreaded block:
can see it in the deep distance, in the dark.
Those others! Their arms stretch: their new
birthing, discovery of another light--glimmer
of each experience that seeps and sparks
as if tiny breaths. But, here, I turn--

Price of the Art on dAI would like to move a very specific thread.More Like This
It's about the price of art and commissions. Because there are a lot of questions; what decides for the price of art? Why it is worthy? And why do we buy commissions?
Some is already written here: http://goldenwolf.deviantart.com/journal/26548172/#comments
I've met with many people who were complaining about the price of art, especially why it is expensive and it doesnt deserve. Even some person did a drama just because prices of my art are *too* expensive. And I'm not alone, I've saw on some proffessional artists who are on dA as well.
I noticed the price of art on deviantART is very low.
Like many people complains that full colored picture plus you get original for 50-70$ is too much. I did some research and counted how much artists originally earn (out of dA)- even a simple artist earns 5 times more than great artists on dA which I know.
Do you know on Eurofurence just only PRINT can be sold there for 100-500 euros?
Do you k
Say NO to the Internet PricesI've been observing a situation of the artist who courageously set up their prices on very decent prices (in meaning: no more 50 bucks full color image of yer characters! but almost 200$ one for her really nice character painting) where I felt so proud of her for being brave to set up the real price of the art. But I was also a witness of bunch of complaining people (mostly I noticed they were young) screaming that her art is not worth for shitload bucks.More Like This
I really wanted to slap faces of these people.
Really, who decide that someone's art is worth that price?
You do not decide how much wort is my art - as my work.
You do not know how much effort I've put into a piece, countless hours, stress, time, including also a years of practice and studies, frustration as well personal finances into the art materials.
Do you think my art is a fun hobby?
You do not decide if my art is a form of fun and what are real feelings with the artist while working on artwork as part of paid job.

Currently there is a giant mess of legislation coming down the crap pipe on behalf of, you guessed it, American copyright police trying to reign in on the fan-comic market. They are attempting (obviously in my interpretation of the post) to wiggle their way between a group of people pouring their hearts and souls into their work and the copyright holders.
I understand that the end game for these...people is money, I get that but where the hell do they expect to find new talent (despite the sludge of porn and fan service) amongst the rough? This a blatant attack on something they know nothing about and refuse to educate themselves on in attempt to not only stop "Child pornography" (even though it's just the style of work...nobody is connecting the dots on that.) and attempting to stop us from ifiltrating the minds of already tainted youth with their rap music and goth underworld.
