Master of Ravens
My little brother is nine years old the first time I decide to kill him.
During the night, snow fell over the jagged wreckage of our land. In the morning I realize he will follow me outside if I call to him. Like an awkward-limbed colt he'll stumble through the snowdrifts, and I can leave him to the ice and wind in the shadow of a three-walled building. No one will see me. Our father will think he has gotten lost on his own. I too will cry when they find his body. When the mourning is done, however, I will be my father's true and only son. 'Cam,' he will call to me, and I'll kneel down before him.
My father. Master of Ravens. Crow-Runner. The Blackbird King.
I pull on my winter boots, knot the coarse laces.
My little brother asks, 'Cam. Where are you going?'
'Out,' I tell him.
'To play in the snow?'
'To look at it.'
When he was born, my little brother was named Taliesin. His is a world without myths, of course. Such things perished in the great f

The artist formally known as...

Journal Entry: Thu May 17, 2012, 7:10 AM
  • Reading: Drawing for Fantasy Artists - Socar Myles

So, those watching me will have had the notice that I've changed my name (I hope, apparently there's still some bugs to work out there). It feels both weird and exciting at the same time; I've been WhiteDragon2393 for nearly 8 years and that's a lot of history. But I've been reluctant to do any art with this name for a while now, because I realised in the past couple of years that it's not what I wanted to be known as when making a name for myself as an artist, and certainly not one I want to sell under. So when the feature came up for community input, I jumped right in to take part in the discussion. But I wasn't expecting it to happen until the end of the year at the earliest, if at all (you'd start to get cynical too after seeing the same copy-pasted non-answer from the staff week after week).

So I was really, really surprised when the announcement popped up in my inbox just before I went to bed last night. And it honestly could not have come at a better time, because I've found an outlet for selling my work in my local town centre and my permanent print account* is feeling sad and neglected because of my reluctance to use it with my old username.

As for my new name? It's actually a name I came up with for a dragon because I feel like they should have names and I ended up liking it so much that I decided it would be my new alias. I still answer to and sign off as Blue though, because quite a few people know me as that and I'm very attached to it (mind you, I have no problem with being called Cal, partly because it's less likely to be followed up with a certain joke).

I feel so psyched right now. The question is, what do I draw first?

See you around


*Speaking of prints, I have one question - why is it that you can view the print store in your own currency, but the actual earnings page and price mark-up is all in dollars? My currency converter is going to be in for one hell of a workout.

Hello, random deviant! I was wondering if you knew how to work and art trade? I'm a noob so I have so idea how, so I was wondering if you could tell me how.

I've never done an art trade before, so I don't know exactly how it works either, sorry.
