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.

Collection: In The Shadow of DragonShare|ArchiveIn The Shadow of Dragons"Is the time of daring deeds forgotten, and spent the fire of men? The bravery sheathed, the proud hearts withered? In the scorched trails of our foes’ fury, even wizards’ spells knelt and warriors’ will bent; yet Dawn’s struggle beneath the burning clouds, within the shadow of dragons, has won her the eastern sky. Shall battle drums thunder once more, and mithril–clad soldiers brave again the terrors of the skies?"— HtBlack of theWrittenRevolution
Collection: Alternative UniverseShare|ArchiveAlternative UniverseThe “alternative universe” has long been a sci–fi trope, usually simply a good–guy bad–guy heroes and villains reversal. Like the Star Trek episode (“Mirror, Mirror”) in which a transporter glitch lands Kirk on an evil pirate “parallel universe” Enterprise where Spock is a goateed murderer with mutiny on his agenda. But real scientists have complicated things considerably, with “string theory” positing at least eleven (and possibly an infinite number) of “alternative/parallel universes.”Once upon a time, we pondered our relative insignificance as sin

Collection: The Steampunk MenagerieShare|ArchiveThe Steampunk MenagerieThe magic of thousands of years of natural selection and other evolutionary factors has created in all living creatures pretty much the optimal version of each for where each fits in the world. But never tell a human being, especially a steampunk, that there’s no need to fix what isn’t broken.Here’s a collection of interesting imaginings of mechanical steampunk replacements for the somewhat mundane denizens of the actual natural world. For some people, especially some artists, until there’s been an upgrade or enhancement to anything, there just isn’t any “there” there.
