    Looking through the hour glass
The frost glows through the night sky.
The weather is cold and harsh and empty.
The love we once had is now forbidden by the harsh hands of reality.
And now I just look through the hour glass.
And with no hope of pleading insanity I just wonder alone.
Am I alone in this world that I call home?
Or are you going to hold my hand and accept me for whom I am?
Is our love still true as I look through the hour glass hoping to find you?
I fear that are love is getting weak.
Until I saw you again looking through the hour glass with hope of finding you once again.
But no luck for the love we once had that was great and powerful.
And just broke apart with the harsh hands of the earth.
As I just stair through the hour glass.
Whats wrong with me?
The thought race through my mind.
Did I really lost you or did I lose my self on the road of broken dreams.
Did faith dealt me a harsh hand or did I draw it on my own luck?
I hope we still have the love we once have through the hour glass.

Update: About credit

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 18, 2014, 5:44 AM
Hi everyone.
In honor of crediting original artworks, we have decided that we will require links or at least written information to any kind of original resources you have used in your art.
It doesnt matter if you've used a free texture for your photomanip or a copyrighted photo as reference for your traditional artwork - we need you to put links to them in your artist comments.

This goes for Fan Art too - credit the original creators and/or the trademark. You also need to state in your deviation description what it is Fan Art of. Same goes for cosplaying.

This is not because we think that you have stolen something - this is because it's proper etiquette to credit stocks and resources. It's about showing respect to people that creates art.

Here is DA Copyright Policy:

Important: A reference means a picture you look at while painting/drawing/sculpturing, to get proportions/colors/features etc right.
It doesn't mean that you copy something or that you didn't actually create something yourself.
So please, stop thinking that we're accusing you of cheating or stealing when we ask for reference!

We won't accept your artworks before you put links or information in your deviation description, so please, for both your sake and our sake - make sure to save any links to your resources and put them in your artist comment. We can handle your submission much faster and your art will be in our gallery much faster.

Win-Win-situation, really.

If you don't remember where you got a set of brushes for your software years ago, or where you found a celebrity pic etc, then of course we won't decline your art or something like that. We just strongly advice you that from now on, you start saving links to such things.

If you can't remember exactly where, and can't provide such links, it's ok that you just write something like "credit goes to who ever made the texture/brush/etc". That goes for reference photos for drawings and photomanipulations too. Just add some kind of information about the original artwork that you used as reference/stock/inspiration.

But please - try to save links from now on. We really prefer that.
We're not the only group that wants this, and it's really good practice to credit any kind of references when you're doing art.

Also, if the all the stocks and resources used are your own, we're fine with you just writing "my own resources" or something like that.

Your admins
