You Ever Felt ItHave you ever felt it?You Ever Felt It by SaraSaeed95
When you lay there broken
And feel yourself so guilty
Eyes gushing red
And you want to sleep in a coma
Your brain swelling with thoughts
At the same time empty with nothing
When you can't suit yourself
And see yourself a place among the demons
that moment when you control your life
The moment when you choose between life and death
And then you yourself can decide either way
It's when you're on the edge
And want someone to pull you back before you make another step
A hook, to rip all the insanity out of your body
And suck all the madness that is growing black dead trees
Have you ever felt it, have you known depression
Did you ever seek a source of help, and did you ever find it
The ExperimentThe Experiment by Shimaira
It was a beautiful summer night, but Leyna could not enjoy it, for she had to work late. To enter the company's terrain she first had to pass by security. The man on duty looked rather bored as he noted down her name, phone number and the building she would be working in.
As she walked to the lab through a small park, she looked up to the sky.
Full stars, a small crescent moon.
A smile crept upon her face. She didn't mind coming back to work at this hour, for she enjoyed her job.
As she entered the laboratory building she used her badge to open the first set of doors, and again to get into the laboratory area. She exchanged her jacket for a lab coat, put on safety goggles and swapped her sneakers for special laboratory clogs. A yawn escaped before she entered the lab and got to work.
It was almost three in the morning when she was finishing up her work when a loud bang shook the building. Wide-eyed and heart racing she ran through the entire lab area, but whatever it was it had not bee
My Soul is a Shade of RedI've thought long and hardMy Soul is a Shade of Red by ShackledMuse
about the colour of my soul;
You know, that shade
that portrays every facet.
I've been broken
and I've been whole.
I've been bright red,
like the shade on my lips
against the paleness of my skin
When I'm out for the night
wearing a blood-red grin.
I've been a light shade of crimson
(which is technically pink,
not really red, as most assume)
I've been happy and fluffy
and the type of candy floss shade,
like a lily in full bloom.
I've been dark red & rose wood,
though I feel that rose is too pretty
a word for the harsh tone of blood.
I've been confused and broken
and shattered and bruised,
a crumpled scarlet flower bud.
I've been crimson and
bleeding with drops dripping
from the edge of a rusted blade
and I've been puddles and spatters
of Sanguine red on tiled shower floors.
Yes, I've been every shade.
#DarkArtists-Inc is a group focused only in Dark Art.
We like Dark Art and we want to expose it so, we welcome all Dark Art Lovers to our Group.
We accept ALL kinds of media, as long as you keep it Dark; not necessary under a "dark" category but, the images must convey some dark emotion and/or feeling.
We accept from Beginners to Experts but please, refrain from sending your entire gallery and try to send ONLY your best to the Group. We do not accept crappy stuff!
The Group Staff reserves the right to deny art that we don't think suitable for the Group's thematics, either for the theme itself, either for the complete lack of quality.
FOUNDERS & CONTRIBUTORS
Who are the Founders & Co-Founders and what's their job here?
the Founder is the person who founded the group and basically he/she can do anything and have full control of everything around the Group. The Co-Founder was designated by the Founder to be in control as well, helping with everything and still able to manage the settings, when necessary.
Who are the Contributors and what's their job here?
Contributors are invited by the Founder and/or Co-Founder. They are chosen according to their skills and areas of expertize. Their job is to accept or decline suggested submissions & favourites, and also, accepting or denying members (always applying the Group's guidelines for Dark Art thematic). Contributors can as well give members the necessary feedback and help. Last but not least, our Contributors help running this amazing Group.
Can I be a Contributor?
For now we're not accepting any more Contributors. In the future, if we feel the need to add more COntributors to our pannel, we'll write a public announcement.
Who are the members and what's their job around here?
Members are free to join or they can be invited by someone from the Admin panel. A member can suggest his own work (or the work of others) to be exposed by the Group, as long as it abides by the Group's thematics. This exposure gives extra feedback to the member's gallery, allowing improvement and more publicity to his gallery & work. A member can also suggest favourites for the Group, following the same guidelines used for the suggested submissions.
Can I become a member?
Yes, we have membership applications open. You just need to click on the "Join Our Group" button (front page left).
Be sure you follow these small rules: you can only submit images related to dark/macabre art or that have some dramatic/dark feeling into it. In case you use resources (external or personal) they have to be credited in your image description.
Are the submissions posted like it was before, under the group's name?
No. On the top of our Front Page, where you have your nickname and your little avatar, click on the arrow and choose to Contribute a Deviation or Suggest a Fave (reminding that, to do it, you have to be an accepted member). After your contribution or suggestion is sent, you just have to wait for approval.
My image suggestion/submission was denied. Why?
One of these reasons: the image you suggested (for submission or favourite) has nothing dark about it; your suggestion (for submission or favourite) doesn't properly credit stockers or is violating some dA policy; what you're trying to submit isn't considered art at all, even for a beginner; the image you suggested (for submission or favourite) is offensive and it can generate uncomfort among several people.
Is there some limit of images I can contribute/suggest?
Please limit your Gallery Suggestions to 2 per month; and limit your Favourite Suggestions to 1 per WEEK as well!
I'm waiting for over than 24/48 hours for my work to be approved or denied. What's happening?
Despite we're trying to gather a reasonable amount of Staff, we can't be around 24/7 and we have lots of images to analyze. Please be patient and soon you'll now if your image has been approved or denied by our Staff.
It's possible that during sometime, things don't work properly. We are already aware that there's a Bug in Groups. dA is trying to set everything right so, lets be patient for some days.
