I see a red door and I want it painted black No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

I wanted to ask you if you were doing alright - if these were actually your thoughts - and at the same time I wondered if those were the lyrics of 'Paint it Black'. Apparently I didn't know the lyrics. Awesome song! Am listening to it right now :>)

successfully converts another heathen to the dark side

So if you're not on the dark side, you're actually a heathen? ;>)
I don't mind the dark but I usually prefer the (sun)light, although fire is mesmerizing.

Hello, dear @juliakponsford, @vachemorte and all you friends.Particularly on Saturdays the access to Internet becomes impossible for us Venezuelans. Added to that is the fact that my modem was damaged... However, here I am sharing my DARK artwork... Hoping that the daggers never wake up from their dream, I bid you farewell...

Thank you, annoying about the internet outages in Venezuela!

excellent happy afternoon


I am seriously considering to make a game around this theme. It sure sounds like a challenge. In fact, I should really do it, as I never entered any of your challenges, one way or another.

P.S. About 15 years ago, my Mini DV cam stopped working. It only recorded sound from that moment onwards. I was close to make a movie with just darkness ) and audio / dialogue. Eventually, I didn't. Looking back on it, I should just have done it. Even if it ended up being a two minute short.

Woah that film would have been cool, I look forward to your game :)

The Darkness in Her Veins


Coming back to some archives from last year (no idea if anybody still remembers this series), here is next frame from quite outstanding workshop of a local make-up artists (from Vilnius, Lithuania). Just before Halloween and the themes were chosen accordingly.
The complete face-art with amazing techniques

Well, still had to think about how to make some more interesting shot in a conditions of make-up salon and not the photo studio, but well. Movable backgrounds and studio flash helped at certain point

Not to forget great model-play reflecting the dark mood
