Partial solar eclipse next week!Hello everyone, sorry I've been so inactive the past few months, I've been having a lot going on in my personal life which has affected my photography greatly but hopefully that changes soon.#nerdytimeNext Wednesday there is going to be total solar eclipse happening in my state! Now the exact location of the total eclipse is 1785 kilometres (1109 miles) away from my location so I will only be able to see a partial solar eclipse where at the eclipses total peak 83% of the sun will be covered by the moon so I hope to purchase a filter for my lens before then so I can snap some photos of it for you all! Some more information about the eclipse can be seen here: http://eclipse2012.org.au/Have a nice weekend
UpdateHi everyone, just a short update! Sorry I haven't been active recently, I've just be swamped with school work and lack of internet access. I'll be sure to post new work up soon for you all Some sad news to bring:This morning I found out that my pet rat Milo passed away, I had her for only a year but she was amazing to me, cheering me up when I was sad/stressed and just being there. I believe she had an upper respiratory tract infection which I wasn't aware of until this morning when I found her, I've been so upset all day. Loosing a pet is like loosing a family member :/ R.I.P Milo <3 Also; I've been quite active on my tumblr blog so check it out http://j-acob.tumblr.comI'll be sure to post my kiriban winner feature soon and be more active.Have a nice weekend
Stolen artwork!! IMPORTANTI want to start off by thanking myheartindollparts for sending me a note informing me that a facebook page has been uploading my work without permission, editing out my watermark and not crediting me at all. This page can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/Khurry10 . There are whole albums just full of MY work as well as hundreds of others with watermarks being edited out and no credit being given. I only know 2 deviants whose artwork is there; lieveheersbeetje, infuzedmedia, naked-in-the-rain and Senju-HiMe ... but there are hundreds more! Report this page. What they are doing is WRONG. They are infringing my copyright as well as others. I hate art theft. EDIT: The page was deleted! Thanks everyone for your support.

How to get noticed on deviantARTHi there! People asked me several times when I've became 'popular' on this site and in which way. I must admit I smelled a bit of envy in their tones, but the thing that troubled me more was that they didn't think that my work was worth all the pageviews I got over the years. Well, I wanted to explain this little thing right now... dA costed me a lot of work! It wasn't a 'BOOM! POPULAR!' thing at all for me.I had to study other people's methods too and to work hard on improving my art, and it wasn't easy. At all!So tonight I'm sharing with you some methods to get attention by dA community.Don't take them as unquestionable laws, just take them for what they are... Hints. They worked for me but they may not work for you.And now that you have a dA account... What should you do?► POST FINISHED ARTWORKS ONLYYour first post should be a fi

Collection: Rise from the DeadShare|ArchiveRise From the Dead“Where are tonight the sword and its swinger, the holy spells and their singer? Where is the light to scatter the ghosts, the sight of dawn to shatter the frost? Fears can be hidden, and hearts’ fire kindled, but will shadows be caged and demons faced? The curses of liches linger like winds of winter, and wolves howl a hymn for the undead's hunt… who will be safe from the grim reaper’s swing, and who will fall in its grip?”— HtBlack of theWrittenRevolution
