ShadowsI scream out in the night,More Like This
My face hidden behind my hands.
Afraid of what might come,
As time follows the sands.
I feel the room shrink,
The floor disappear,
My face full of terror,
As my fate comes near.
Through the light-less world I fall,
Screaming in fear at it all.
This world of darkness and death,
It stops my heart and steals my breath.
I can feel the shadows grab onto my throat,
Hold me tight this is my fear and it is their doubt.
I struggle in it's grasp and cry out I pain,
As blood fills my eyes and makes me insane.
I look down at my victim.
The shadow's grasp my own.
I smile evilly and tighten the grip,
Killing the girl and crushing her bone.
I watch her fall down into the dark,
Her body becoming smaller as she fell.
To become part of the shadows,
And a part of me as well.
I hear her last cries echo,
Until it takes it last toll,
Leaving me emptiness,
And the girl's soul.
"I hold her soul,
Tis all mine to keep.
Her life was worthless,
Thus it was mine to reap."

I love to browse the Artisan Crafts gallery, read the artist's description and have a look at the comments people leave behind. I sometimes read comments like this:
"Wow! That looks great, like it's mass produced!""It's not perfect of course, there's some mistakes since it's handmade.""I think that the fingerprints/imperfections are ok, because they make it look handmade.""Crafts can't be perfect, we're not machines."
... and I cringe every time! Worst of all, sometimes it's the very artist the one putting down their work. I want to tell everyone to STOP thinking less of your work and your skills, and be proud of everything you do! I'm here to encourage you to always do your best, always appreciate your work, and always be proud of everything you do! Handmade is the best!!!
Handmade is always best

Over the last year I've participated in many challenges that required me to do a drawing a day for a period of time. Most notably the color challenge and refinement challenge, but also a lot of speedpainting and daily sketching.

You Tube TutorialsHeyyyyyy heyyyyy!More Like This
I finally got off my ass and started up a You Tube channel based on tutorials! hahah
The first (well actually second video) i have up is pretty, kinda, really important for those trying to import their line-work for digital painting.
This http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Hg1MkstS_A shows you how to set your lines up to start the painting process. I have a drawing tips video uploading now.... (I'm new at the whole video / tutorial thing- so hopefully it will be posting soon...)
The tutorials will be broken up in parts... so I apologize for any abrupt editing haha.
My channel link is:
If the videos are super boring... let me know. If there is something you want me to address specifically.. let me know. I will be tackling as much of my process as I can think of. (Paints, environments, Photoshop techniques.....etc.)
Aside from that... more in the works!

Sometimes, it's hard to get in touch with a field of art and try it yourself. If you don't know how to start and what you need, it's even worse! But don't worry: it's easier than it seems.
While heavenriver already explained how to "behave" if you want to be a fractal artist, I will give you an insight on what to use and when.
What kind of tools do I need to make a fractal?
Let's see the most common!
You need...a fractal software!
Sounds obvious, but yeah...you need a specific kind of software to make fractals! There are many out there, some famous, some obscure. Literally, there's the right fractal program for each of us! Some of the most used are:
