paper cranesWe unfold ourselves like paper cranespaper cranes by After-Eden
biding our time along predestined seams
Once built for hope we tear that down
My fingers untangling from yours/
my emotions bright, gleaming things throbbing in unity
I hide them under my floorboards along with letters I wrote to myself
dreams that now fester and blacken alongside the mold growing there
I look to you
my burnt demon
10,000 wishes made and I was so close
perhaps I did not fold fast enough
Precious Fishprecious fishPrecious Fish by After-Eden
that I ask for by name;
solidifying in my gut
helping me grow gills
I cry for you
my language a fit of bubbles
mess of sardine cans
I walk leg for leg until I crumple into fins
That I may never walk again suits me fine
if I might only spot your love torn face,
see the weaving of water lilies
graceful and dreaming of me
Pick Up The PiecesSiphoned offPick Up The Pieces by RJBG
A dollar a love
A borrowed kiss
As the cradle rocks back and forth
Tattered teddy tethered vale
Forget me knots
A bulb flickers
Neon red love hearts
Off the dial
And a flame is distinguished
In the frigid rumours of night
DEATHS KISSAt the chapel of loveDEATHS KISS by RJBG
Death dressed in the devils silhouette
Romantics dominatrices entangled chants
Another side of reasoning
Pirouettes lust, love and the widow host
Wine stained lips
Meat clever and a red rose bouquet
The spill of the chase, kisses all down her neck
Bludgeoned to death, necrophilia
The beast dead and dying inside a selfless crime
Grievous bodily harm
A funeral hurst
Weds thee at the alter of love
#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.
