Welcome to FederationOfDarkness! We've only just started up. This is our first official journal, and we're kick-starting things with our very first prompt!

This month's prompt: Bones

This is also the first interview, with none other than :iconproud-pyramid: proud-pyramid!

Before we begin, I've got to ask: proud-pyramid, what's it like to interview yourself?
Very weird. But the reason I'm doing this, is so visitors can get an impression of what the interviews will be like.

So... What got you into the darkness?
I'd have to say life in general, the almighty Ulyaoth, and H.P. Lovecraft. Actually, now I think about it, I've always had an affinity with the darkness - as a kid I'd always pick out horror books, like those from Paul van Loon...

Interesting... Now, what kind of works do you create? Do you have any ongoing projects?
All sorts of works, but mostly traditional drawings. Right now I'm working on the Tome of Eternal Darkness and on an Eternal Darkness OC Template / Meme kind of thing.


That's definitely worth checking out! Next up, can you share with us your favourite content of darkness (story/game/comic/anime/etc.)?
My favourite content would have to be the game Eternal Darkness. It's a third-person game that focuses on puzzles and has a lot of (magical) battle in it. It has a very strong, well thought-out storyline with tons of mystical details, and most uniquely, it has 'sanity effects' - your character will hallucinate when he or she loses sanity! I like this game so much, because I can't find any flaws in the storyline, yet I can't find all the answers either, which leaves me speculating!

That sounds very dark, indeed. Finally, what other dark inspirations would you suggest we check out?
I highly recommend you read H.P. Lovecraft's work if you haven't already. You can check them out here: [link]
The game Outlast is also really fun: [YouTube Letsplay]

I'll go an check those out! Again, thank you very much for participating in this interview. May the darkness surround you.

Next month we'll post up our first Art Feature of a couple of awesome, dark deviations submitted to the gallery. Each featured work will also be moved to the Featured Folder :la: So stay tuned!

Kind regards,

Thanks :)
Is this the first time you heard of the Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, or did you already know them?

Already knew them, I listen to them once in awhile. It's good atmospheric music, good for making more art. 
They fit in with some of the other stuff I listen to, on my radar so to speak. 
There are a few bands on my profile page you might like :]

I found out about them recently actually, via someone in the forums.
I'll be sure to check them out! :la:

I just heard them a year or two ago I think.
