A Sky So DarkA sky so dark,A Sky So Dark by DeinoLilith
All Gods would tremble
At the sight of this black abyss
Only stars dare shine'n cascades;
And this night shall be your grave,
Darker than your sinful thoughts,
No more sun to shine at day,
No more clouds to hide the darkness.
A nothingness that spreads
From a corner to another,
From where skies dare touch the ground
To where all your dreams shall end.
A sky so dark,
All birds would vanish
Singing no more of their thrills
Leading swiftly to their fading .
No more stars would dare to shine
Lightning part of this dark Heaven,
All you hear shall be an echo
Of your once untold, lost dreams.

Was a necrophiliac
If you believe what you hear.
Though...if that's the case -
What are we, who so adore
Quoth the Raven “Nevermore."?
Nocturnes. Nightingales. Something Died at Dawn.As I dreamt on the jet- tides of the Neptunian sea,Nocturnes. Nightingales. Something Died at Dawn. by blalock27
I heard nocturnes of nightingales serenading elegantly.
They sang through the dusk straight near the dawn,
'Til the cock crowed at daybreak; they departed anon.
The eventide songbirds were ecstatically singing
Ensembles transcendent as an angel winging;
Accentuated with booming percussions of thunder,
As far off thunderbolts tore the Stygian sky asunder.
Clouds were gathering swiftly in crashing cracks of light,
As lightning threw radiant strikes upon the ebon night.
When the lightning stroked I saw vividly in the afterglow
Nymphs dancing carnally to the nocturne's lusty crescendo.
They skipped about the cannonades and serenades spastic
In gyrations of decadence bordering upon orgiastic.
They possessed every shadow of that pre-morn gloom,
In geometries of bounding ballets and dervish doom.
But as all things will, most usually with no portend -
Sure as nightingales fly away, every dream must end.
I woke at dawn recalling a phantom song
#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.
