Of Doors and Dark Places

He slumps against the windowless wall, head lolling, hair unkempt. Lining the dark, dusty floor are dim outlines, lost toys and forgotten heirlooms, the dingy detritus of eons. "Why do you stay?" He doesn't move. The darkness pulses. "What keeps you?" He looks up at the door, through the window. Black. He drops his head again. "Don't know." "Don't know what? What keeps you, or what's outside?" "Don't know." He turns halfway towards the wall. A sad old teddy bear soaks up more dust. A broken down easel settles further. Another hour passes by. "You're dying." "I know." "What are you going to do?" "Don't know." A yellowed page frees

Again To Fly

The snow lay dead against the leafless tree Which once bore fruit but brittle gray now stood. The clouded sun by only slight degree Bestowed a yellow hue upon the wood. Below the boughs there sat a faded bird Who once had flown but now stayed grounded here And who had nothing seen and nothing heard Beyond the barren field she held so dear. In silence huddled 'gainst the lonely cold, She chanced to cast her gaze out to the east, And through the mist a bright white light, behold! Yet swift reclaimed by mist, the light had ceased. Such sudden, blinding brightness shocked the bird And beckoned, yet repulsed, for how could she Leave

Symbols on the Rock

The gate is opening slowly. I barely even touched it. Funny. There are a lot of gravestones here. They look like they never end. Row after row. Identical. I'm stepping through the gate. Into the graves. The mist is curling around the gravestones and grabbing at my legs. The moon is staring at me, but no one else is watching. No one else is here. I'm standing at a monument. Surrounded by graves. There's a disk made of stone in the ground, with knots carved on it. And symbols. I can't read the symbols. They won't let me. There's a big rock on the other side of the disk. It's tall and thin and it looks sick. There are more symbols on it. Th

My Bio
A Tumblr thing I have, where I put sketches and other almost nothing but random crap.

I'm a quiet, slightly awkward nerd. I spend too much time on the internet. I play too many video games. I like to come up with stories that are hardly ever fully realized. Further details dispensed on a need-to-know/feel-like-telling-you basis.

Favourite Visual Artist
I've got a lot of 'em.
Favourite Bands / Musical Artists
Helen Jane Long, John Powell, Clint Mansell
Favourite Writers
JRR Tolkien, JK Rowling, Edgar Allan Poe
Favourite Games
Journey. (But StarCraft II, Portal, Half-Life 2, Mass Effect 1 and 2, Dishonored, and The Stanley Parable aren't bad.)
Favourite Gaming Platform
PC, hands down.
Tools of the Trade
Mechanical pencil, printer paper, Wacom Cintiq tablet, Photoshop CS5, Microsoft Word / OpenOffice, occasionally Blender and Toon Boom Studio
Other Interests
Drawing, reading, writing, games and game design, language(s) and grammar, computer programming, music, etc.

Happy birthday, old man!
Randomonium09Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks man!

I haven't really been around DA Land these past months. Haven't missed your birthday, have I?
MaraxxusEredexaHobbyist Digital Artist
It was in March, so you probably did, but it's really not a problem, haha. But yeah, I noticed you're not around here anymore, is life busier than ever? Do you draw at all these days?
Randomonium09Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well darn. Happy super-belated birthday, then!

Actually, life's been a lot LESS busy than usual. I wound up taking a year off from school to sort out this mess (which, before you get too worried, is going really really well). As far as drawing goes... meh? I'm certainly not doing it as much as I'd like; hopefully that'll change in the next few weeks. But for the most part I'm just kinda wasting away my days on Tumblr (which is incidentally where I've posted all of the new art I've done recently. I have a fair amount of stuff over there that I still need to post on DA.)

How're things on your end?
MaraxxusEredexaHobbyist Digital Artist
Hey man, glad to see you're still around these places. Thanks for that favorite too, it's much appreciated.
