Who's Ready to Come Back From The Dead?

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 2, 2018, 8:00 AM

Obviously, there have been no official updates for a while, and I'm looking to change that.

But, I'm going to need a little help.

So, feel free to make some comments/suggestions, etc. on what you would like to see happen in the group.

You, the members, will make it happen by voicing opinions, desires, goal, dreams, whatever.

No input from you means folks just want a dumping ground for art and writing. And, hey, (that's kind of depressing, but) who am I to argue with what you want? But if you prefer something better, let me know. And we'll see what we can accomplish together.

Let's Resurrect :icondeviant-nightmares:

We could start with the logo. A contest, maybe? A revamped logo for Deviant-Nightmares? A new Writing and Art Prompt? Weekly Features?

Let us know. Comment Below.
Yours: :iconliviad34d:

Final cover
Deviant Nightmares Magazine 001 July 2016 Zombies
Featuring art from :icondloliver:, :iconsandara:, :iconpullingcandy:, :iconjoseph-sweet:, :iconsmile7z:, :icontatohc: and more.
Fiction by Kay Peers, (:iconpullingcandy:) :iconmichealgrin:, Andrea Scroggs (:iconsmile7z:)  and :iconjoseph-sweet:
Submissions are open for October, and as such, here's the cover for issue 002.

Deviant Nightmares 002 October test cover by joseph-sweet

Get cooking up your best vampire fiction and art and now that we're moving ahead finally, starting with July's zombie issue, we'll be picking from among your submissions and if we like what we see, we'll get in touch.

Stories should be a max of 350 to 375 words. This may seem very short, but in a magazine it takes up a lot of space. We may make very limited exceptions, but try to keep it under an absolute maximum of 450.

Images should be 8.5 x 11 inches or 2550 by 3300 pixels at 300 dpi. for full page images.  We can edit images to make them fit if we like them enough or if you already have something that you think would work for this. Creating something new just for this issue isn't necessary, but all fiction must be original and your own work. We cannot accept any fan based fiction.

If you would like to try your hand at writing articles, or have some inside information or leads on something coming up in October vampire related or horror, dark fantasy or scifi (which can also be in video games, Tv shows, and comic books) send your submission to me :iconjoseph-sweet: via private message, as posting that type of stuff publicly puts something that could be exclusive out there for everyone to see. I'll let you know if it's something we can use.

Harness the Elements: Photoshop tutorial series by MonikaZagrobelna

I found this yesterday and thought it was pretty awesome.

It could be used by digital painters or for photomanips. There are plenty or reasons why you might need to make realistic looking fire, water, ice, stone, smoke and other stuff shown here in photoshop.

Drop by and check out the artist :iconmonikazagrobelna:'s gallery and give some much deserved favs and attention.

Deviant Nightmares Breaking News and Announcements!!!

Deviant Nightmares Magazine 001 July by joseph-sweet

Welcome to Deviant Nightmares!
Looking for a little inspiration? Check out past writing/art projects/prompts here…
If you're looking for group rules go here deviant-nightmares.deviantart.…
July's issue of Deviant Nightmares Magazine is live and you can get the digital version for less than 500 points by clicking the image above, or go here and get it for $4.99.…
Paper prints are available as well, of course.
Our older endeavor, Deviant Nightmares Anthology, is available still online wherever books are sold. Ask your libraries and bookstores to carry it to help get exposure for your fellow authors and artists. It's listed at minimum, so we make nothing off it. The distributors and printers make something, I'm sure, but our goal was never to profit. It was about exposure for your talent. Getting you out there and seen by the masses so your hard work can be appreciated by as many as we can help get it in front of.

October Submissions deadline is almost here, so get your vampire stuff in. Running out of time, folks. tick-tock.

Group Info

Deviant Nightmares is a group for people to submit anything dark. Horror related fiction, art, and photography. There aren't going to be many rules, just that it's original, no fan art, and is your own creation. Anything created with stock must have credit given. This will also be the home of a Quarterly Magazine featuring art and stories, news and reviews. You will be able to submit stories and art to be considered for that publication. You retain all rights to anything you submit, We will never make any claim to your material. If you choose to submit something for inclusion in the quarterly publication, you will also still retain all rights. The idea behind that is to get you exposure and help you grow as artists.
