Heyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy everyone. I've missed dA. I don't think I'll ever be as active on here as I once was, but it is really nice just looking at other people's art. (State the obvious, why don't you...) There are a few real gems in the Comic-Charisma
group - but as is the nature of comic strips, the best ones tend to be long, engaging, gripping, very un-put-down-able series. You have been warned.Denizens! Attention! blackbirdink.deviantart.com/ar…"Alicka and her little brother Winston are sent to Winterkill Boarding School. The number one dumping ground of unwanted troubled teens. A miniature Gormenghast filled with bad seeds and black sheep."
A gorgeously dark aesthetic, and a story steeped in mythology.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Color Blind pablololo.deviantart.com/art/C…"The curiosity of five 8th graders leads them to a world of magic, and wonder, and the request of a magical guardian. They are given a mission to save both their worlds which seems like any child's dream.
But this colorful world is home to war, monsters, anger, and paranoia just like ours, and these kids are finding it hard to keep going on."
I think the above description doesn't quite convey how "WTF??" this series is. It's so weird and quirky.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And some other stuff outside of the Comic-Charisma
group...City of Blank www.deviantart.com/art/City-of…"No one is sure what the blanks are or where they came from. They are gaseous beings with no consciousness and simply wander aimlessly. They have no idea where they are going or what they are doing. The only thing they know is to steal faces. If someone is to drop their mask, the blanks will swarm, quickly stealing their face before the person can even reach for their mask. So long as they stay in hiding long enough, the blank will eventually become the face's owner, slowly growing into their body and gaining all their memories. Sooner or later, they become the very person whose face they stole.
In this world that hides its face behind masks, there is something going on behind the scenes. Our main character Rexerse enters Glory City, better known as the City of Blank, in hopes of finding some answers. However, once he gets there, he discovers he may have gotten more than he bargained for. However, Rexerse may just be hiding a few things himself..."

"Living under an authoritarian regime is not fun. Extensive censorship meant no Facebook, no Youtube, and no porn.
Fortunately for Vance, being a hacker makes scaling the Great Firewall a walk in the park. With the free web at his fingertips, Vance should be happy but he’s not. Maybe there’s something missing in his life that porn just cannot replace.
Maybe it’s a girlfriend.
So it’s not weird at all to hack into the university to assign himself a hot female roommate, right? That’s just taking fate into your own hands, or something along those lines, right?
Too bad fate had other plans in mind and Vance is dragged into a crazy conspiracy to overthrow the government by his most-definitely-not-female roommate.
College is meant to be exciting, but not this exciting. Between failed dates, failed grades, and maybe not quite failed hacks, Vance will slowly come to question the morality of his actions and the true price of freedom.
Is this what democracy looks like?"yuumei
's other series 'Knite' is also incredible.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Blood Stain sigeel.deviantart.com/art/chap…
Girl can't find job, girl gets desperate, girl accepts job as lab assistant to mad scientist. It's better than I make it sound.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hang on, I'm nearly done advertising.noche-estrellada
has opened an online shop - www.storenvy.com/stores/317248…"My main focus is making accessories out of paper stars - which have been varnished, so they're water resistant and really strong. Both the varnish and the varnishing process took months to develop. If I missed a step, or did things in the wrong order, or used the wrong type of varnish, the paper would get soaked and the star would be ruined. Quite the challenge! There were a few stumbling points along the way, but I've got the process down. The varnish is a trade secret. "
How cool is that? We both spent a summer's work experience at NPL, and I like to think that I was briefly in the presence of a creative genius.
I watched the season 3 finale of Avatar: the Legend of Korra
last weekend and it was extremely harrowing.
Alright, that's all the artsy things I wanted to say. All done.
