End of one feature, beginning of another!

Journal Entry: Sun May 1, 2011, 9:16 AM

Ok so my April feature is now over, the chosen pieces are all at the bottom of this journal. I didnt really get as many submissions as i was hoping for but oh well, less work for me eh?
Here it is...
The big moment....

This months Featured artist is....

:iconnotastupidcat: for their amazing cosplay work and photography of this and much more. This was totally swung by the fact i am a die hard silent hill fan and she has an entire freakin collection of Silent Hill cosplays going! Seriously though some really hot stuff there with pieces such as Don't Go In The Elevator by NotAStupidCat capturing the horror and tension of the entire series so perfectly!

Outside of her Silent Hill work (yet still in the cosplay scene) is her Final Fantasy and anime stuff which manages to be both overtly bright and OTT yet remain serious (yarly im bein srs) at the same time so kudos to ya there!
Always Smiling by NotAStupidCat Sanji is Smokin' by NotAStupidCat GRELL PHOTOBOMB by NotAStupidCat

Right thats over with!

For my next feature (forum post will be up and ready for submissions during the week, got a fair amount of stuff to sift through first...) im going for a surreal theme, if it makes sense, its not in the feature!

Personal Shiz...
So i'm back at uni now, playing more guitar than should be physically possible but oh well! Moving from sh*tsplat nowhere to Brighton in a few months though which shall be EPIC!
20th Birthday at the end of the month, ANY deviants in the Brighton area please give me a shout on here or via email ( for drinks in the town on the 29th or 28th!

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 21, 2011, 11:04 AM

Ok so the DariusBerne facebook page is now up and running properly, so please, if you're following me on here, follow me on there to help spread my plague! Every like helps and please tell your friends about it! also anyone who follows on my facebook and notifies me on there will be featured in my journal as well.
You can find the page here

9 days to go until I'm due to announce the winner of this months featured artist! all artists i have featured this month will appear in my next journal (provided i dont have to post anything before then). There have been a lot of really good submissions on the forum but anyone following me can submit too, just send me a not or comment on my page :)

And now to quote Sting...

If, "Manners maketh man" as someone said
Then he's the hero of the day
It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
Be yourself no matter what they say

Modesty, propriety can lead to notoriety
You could end up as the only one
Gentleness, sobriety are rare in this society
At night a candle's brighter than the sun

That is all for this week!

Wow, i didn't even realise until i checked my statistics.
Um... Ok. it has been 4 years since i joined. I believe i've matured (purely artistically, i still have the mentality of a 1 year old invalid after too many blue smarties*). I've changed styles and spent far too many moneez on software which i only used for 3 pictures... NOT SAYING ANY NAMES!

I will probably make a big pic for 101 to celebrate... i'll post it in a minute...

Anyhoo, it's far too early to be thinking about anything at all. SO! here we go!

From now on i want you all to call me ameses Niblick the Third Kerplunk Kerplunk Whoops Where's My Thribble.

That is all my great and fellow americans
For now, i am John Henry... wrong show

I am your gracious saviour
and there's the ego boost i needed

later doodz

P.S. Want more book dog

Ok guys, January's features have now expired. I'm now looking for as many pieces as i can to feature on my front page until the 5th of May. If you have any particular pieces you want me to look at just send me a note. I'm normally pretty snappy about replies, so if you dont get one within about 6 hours, I'm either asleep, out partying or unable to get to my PC. I WILL respond within 2 hours 90% of the time.

There are no rules to follow, i just want great art.
Actually wait...
No sorry...
There is one rule..
No literature or poetry etc. i do not feel i am expierienced enough in these styles of art to judge them. The only thing i know about poetry is that there IS a word that rhymes with Orange. Ghorringe. It's a part of an old fashioned horse's dressage wear that went under the tail...

Anyhoo, Give me a shout or check out the forums for my name, im there somewhere in the boggy lands of Dev Thumbshare!
