To Vanish
I want to vanish.
Because I‘m tired.
I feel like I‘ve been on a long goalless walk for years now,
Without ever finding a place save enough to settle down.
I’m restless. I always sleep with one eye open at night.
I can’t find a place to call home.
I don’t even know what “home” is supposed to feel like.
I never learned about that.
I’m so tired.
Sometimes I wish I was like Grimm’s “Sleeping Beauty”.
Falling asleep for a thousand years, in a big safe castle.
With walls so massive and all around strong branches of thorns so high;
Protecting me from every outside influence, only letting people in, that are really meant for me.

I don’t feel like dying, I love to live.
But I want to vanish inside myself.
With nothing of me left for the world to lay their fingers on, anymore...
I want to be safe inside myself, because I'm not on the outside.
J.t.S.

Rosie and the First Sacrifice: The Portal 1
Rosemary Terrazzo and the First Sacrifice       
Halloween 1993
    It's one in the morning, and two 19 year old girls stumble out of Binion's Horse Shoe Casino in Halloween costumes. One is an average height, pale, slender, raven haired girl in a very cinematic witch costume. The other is a tall natural red head in a cheap slutty school uniform. Freckles adorn her nose, cheeks, broad shoulders, and toned arms. They are both buzzed. Though they look their age now, a moment ago they looked 28. The red head nearly trips, but her friend holds her up.
    “How do you know that spell of yours really works, Emo”, The red head hiccups. “Like any of those pervs cares how old we are”
    The witch snuggles up to her companion, hugging her arm. “Well the club didn't kick us out, Wendy. They even looked at our IDs and didn't see our real ages.”
The two stroll down Glitter Gulch passed a wall of light bulbs. The

Usually I divide pictures into seperate folders at some point, when I have collected some and have the time to sort them.

Just check out my Favourites above, if you have any interest of other artist's work which I (under influence of my personal taste and thoughts) sorted into:

BL and hot guys (Boylove/Yaoi and other nice-to look-at's)
Emotional
Reapers and Shinigamis
Foxes
Spirits and Demons
Het and Girls
Gen Fanart
Cute and Funny
Abstract, Alternative, Landscapes, Objects
PTSD
One Piece Fanart


PLEASE NOTE:
If your art is in one of my folders and you really wonder how the f... it fits the topic, please consider, I might have sorted it in wrong, because I kinda hit the wrong button.

Hello and welcome to my sanctuary. :)

I like to take photos and do abstract paintings.
Mostly I'm doing digital art, but I also like to paint on paper.
I love to listen to music. It's the thing that has kept me breathing through the worst times of my life.

(Some of you might have also realized by now, that I'm loving Deaths, Reapers, Shinigamis and so on.)

Social Fatigue (My first journal ever)Social Fatigue – and how it affects me
(My first journal ever)

So… this is kinda difficult.
I think a lot of people are waiting for mail from me. And I’d really want to write you, because I like all of you.
So I’m gonna try and explain why I don’t manage to simply do so...
I’m not gonna write about social fatigue in general and neither is this going to be professional.
I’m just gonna write about how it affects me, because it affects me a lot.
Still, there might be others, who have the same problem and share my experiences.
Feel free, to add any knowledge and personal impressions about this, if you suffer of the same kind of problem.
Any possible causes or other affected areas of life are welcome.
Personally I’m affected both in virtual- and RL-communicating.

Since it's LGBTQ+ - pride month it's possibly the best time to say this...

And she ran to him, then they started to fly
They looked backward and said goodby,
She had taken his hand, don't fear the reaper"

My dear readers.

I'm back this month to try the second time to show you 6 beautiful pictures, I found on DeviantArt.

This month, to celebrate my favourite holiday of the year:

HALLOWEEN


The number of introductions used is symbolic, of course. Devilmote 


This time, due to the type of topic, I'm not going to sort the categories as orderly as last time.
Mainly you're going to find digital pictures in this one.

If you're looking for crafts or photography, the second part of the journal, which is going to follow on Oct. 30 or Oct. 31 will be more your taste. skull emoticons wink 



This time you are going to find:

  • Creatures

  • Landscapes

  • An Object.



I leave it up to everybody personal, to judge what they find scary.
Just know, I'm not going for horror or gore here. I've picked pictures, that I personally find beautiful and want to share with you. skull emoticons wink 



Now let's get started, shall we? Halloween Pumpkin, Evil Laugh 




Creatures ⸎


Three fellows that are beautiful – in some way.


The first one is called “Skelleton of Society” by Samize

Skeleton of Society by Samize


It shows a reaper, I'm sure of that. Or... maybe more then one.
But I'm pretty sure the being we face here was ment to reap something!
I really think, it's a deep picture, if you think about the deeper meaning it might have, considering the title. Which is – apart from the good looks – the main reason, why it's one of my absolute favourites. Our society really is so dead (braindead, if you will). Or murderous.
Or how the reaper has to treat every soul the same way.
Isn't that also an aspect of our society? Everybody being a “number”?

As you see, this beautiful work of art makes me think a lot, which is another reason, why I wanted to show it to you.





~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~⸜





The second picture is called “I'm lonely, too” and was created by CreepyChibi


I'm Lonely Too by CreepyChibi


It shows a whole different kind of death, more the kind of picture I have in mind, when I think of the reaper.
And just so adorably cute. :D I want to hug him and cuddle and kiss and... err.... I'm drifting off. skull emoticons wink 

The thing is... apart from looking really cute, I really depict the personified Death as a very emotional and lonely being.

I always try to summon my personal imago of Death, when I'm down and think about what he would probably tell me about life, the living and dying. Pretty philosophic, really.
My personal imagination of him also came to the conclusion that death would be very lonely, which is part of the reason, why I don't want to die.
That's why I love this picture so much and I really hope, you do, too. ;)




~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~⸜




The next picture was named “The Siren” by it's creator LennartVerhoeff


Siren by LennartVerhoeff


It shows a beautiful mermaid on a... oh wait, there is something in her face.
Oh no, wait, this IS her face.
She's still kinda hot, though. :D
Who dares to kiss this maiden? (And don't mind the skull, that's drifting by, it probably has nothing to do with what she had for lunch.)
Awesome painting, in my opinion.

Also, I think, her proportions are nice. Not such an Ariel for once, in lack of a swimming adequate for “Barbie”.




___________________________________________________________






Landscapes ⸙


Here are 2 beautifully spooky landscapes I picked from my favourites to show to you.


The first one is named “Alone” by RadoJavor


Alone by RadoJavor

The dusky atmosphere is creating a feeling of nearing doom. You basically just wait for the wind's first harsh breath to initiate a huge autumn storm or worse occurences.
It always makes me shudder in a dark-expectant way, if I look at this picture.
Nevertheless the details in the pic are absolutely lovely – and realistic.




~~~ ⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~⸜



The other one is called “We belong dead” by @AlizarinJen

We Belong Dead by AlizarinJen


Again a picture that is more cute then scary, but it also bears a really interesting message.
I suggest, you click on it and read the thoughts the artist had while making it, for yourselves, because I don't want to accidentally repeat them wrong.
Beside me having a certain love for graves and graveyards (there is nothing more romantic to take a walk at!) I think Lady Monsterbride has really lovely looks in it and her two cats are really beautifully drawn and painted.
My absolute respect for that. In my experience it's not very easy to depict realistic cat-features.




___________________________________________________________






An Object ■


Beside the nice pictures above, I have something handcrafted in store for you anyhow.

It's the “Vampire slayer kit” made by ryoshi-un


Vampire Slayer kit by ryoshi-un


Looking at all the terrible dangers, that were presented to you above and that will soon follow in the second, far more scarier part of my Halloween Journal, you may want to obtain one of those lovely, handcrafted kits, to protect yourself and your loved ones against the yearly free-roaming of Halloween.

I'm sure the crucifix, bible, wooden stake and various other holy and not-so-holy objects, mixtures and herbs will provide maximum safety in all kinds of awkward situations those foreign creatures may get you into. ;)

- No, seriously. This looks absolutely amazing. I'd really love to have one of my own, to play with it, to be honest. You can really see, those things were chosen and built with care.
Again, amazingly realistic looks, as if it was indeed ment for use. - But who knows? Probably it is...

Autumn Journal Shinigami by Jack-the-Shinigami


So, hello everybody.

This is the Second Part of my monthly _Introduction Journal_ in which I'm going to present you 10 artists. Here's where you can find the First Part.
                                                                                                    

The topic for September 2017:
Since here in Europe September is the first month of autumn (fall), I'm going to try and make this the topic for this month.

Not everything is going to be yellow, orange and red.
It's going to be about any kind of thing that reminds me of autumn or late summer and seems fitting to me. :D



Now, lets get started, shall we? ;)

( ! Please note, that the following order is not supposed to be a ranking ! )





~~~■~~~●~~~■~~~●~~~■~~~●~~~■~~~●~~~■~~~●~~~■~~~●~~~■~~~●~~~■~~~⸜


(1)


Let's start with


Brandt Campbell, who is from Oregon in the USA, calles himself a hobbist photographer.

His works though, speak other words; the awesome landscapes and macro photographs look, as if they were taken with much know-how.

Full of life as they seem to be, they are not the only things he's submitting to the site, but it's those pictures in his gallery, that I'm loving the most. A lot of them have already wandered into my treasure-chest of favourites, but I don't think I'm done yet to explore all of his works.


So please, take a look at his well-sorted gallery, too. Because it's absolutely worth it.


Here are some of his works, that are (imho) also topic related to fall,
To give you a small impression of what you will find in this man's works:

The second artist I want to introduce to you is

ullakko 


ullakko alias Ulla Thynell is a female artist from Finland.
She's a professional artist of different genres and her works mirrow that.
Mainly she focuses on digital and traditional illustrations and paintings.
Detailled depictions of nature and nature-related fantasy, held in lovely colours will not only make grown ups happy.
In fact, they remind me of some beautiful picture books I had as a kid, not the regular, intense colourful kind, but the precious ones, that are too delicate and present, to be folklore and to fantastic and alternative to be modern.
I bet, you'll be able to see the love that they were painted with, if you take a closer look at the ones I picked from her amazing gallery, to show to you:

Another artist, worth mentioning is
CharlyJade 


CharlyJade, who's actual name is Charlotte comes from the UK and is a hobbist photographer.
Another hobbist, who might actually be a professional, but this one's specials are animals.
Charly is able to take the most stunning snapshots of the wildest of animals. How she does that?
I think she told me once in a comment, but for now, let's simply imagine, she just goes out into the jungle or other dangerous areas to bring those beautiful and unique pictures to her watchers on DA. ;)
The ones that I'm gonna show to you now are only autumn-related, so make sure, to check out her gallery for glimpses of more exotic animals, guys!

The 4th artist I want you to take a look at is

AAndulce 


Alexander Andulce from Chile is a digital artist, a hobbist, to be exact.
But the guy makes very extraordinary pieces, that look like they are full of dreams.
And well, they certainly are full of colours.
If you like abstraction and cuteness, you will love this.
Actually, the pictures have a serious touch to them, that sometimes gets me thinking, despite their lovely and colourful looks.
But go and see for yourselves:

We're at half, number 5 of the artists I wanted to introduce to you is
IndigoSummerr 


Lea, a German artist, who does not actually specify if she is a hobbist or professional, at what she's doing, is another remarkable photographer. She has lot's of beautiful pictures in her gallery and I might be wrong, but it seems to me, she has a faible for capturing small things and beings with her lense.
But this is not the only thing she's capturing. She also manages to catch light in bottles.
Impossible? Here's the proof:

The 6th artists I'm showing you is
lalalandofclouds 


lalalandofclouds is a professional traditional artist from the UK, called Olivia Rose.
She makes paintings and drawings of very extraordinary kind.
I don't know how else to describe her style, then as "intense".
It's intense in colours, intense in expression and intense in details.
Each of her artworks possesses the potential to fall in love with it.
Maybe one reason for that is, that she mainly draws and paints beautiful young woman.

The 7th artist, I chose to present this month, is
Weissglut 


Weissglut is a German artist, who calls herself Syl.
She also doesn't mention any profession, but her gallery looks, like she takes some joy in taking atmospheric pictures of landscapes, that never miss a certain gloomy touch.
Actually, that's what I personally love about them, they almost look like painted.
She can take pictures of winter or any other season, but I always get that feeling of a rainy day in fall. Which is a compliment, coming from me, since those kind of days are my favourite.
Let's take a closer look at actual fall-days, she caught in pictures, though:

(8)


The 8th artist in this journal, who I'm presenting to you is
Crowtesque 


Crowtesque only tells that he or she is from the United States.
Usually this artist's gallery does indeed look grotesque, having lots of crows, ravens, black cats and other dark animals in it, but that's actually, what I love about it.
Crowtesque usually seems to focus on digital and traditional paintings of dark arts, so to say.
I actually thought about mentioning this artist next month for Halloween, because of this, but the pics are way too deep for that.
Also I found 5 rather unusual pieces in between the darkness, which I adore very much, too.
And they all fit this month's topic so well and they also have this kind of dark touch to them, just for a change well-mixed with brighter colours, .

We're nearing the end, the 9th and therefor second last artist is
ezorenier 


ezorinier is an artist from Russia. A professional photographer, to be exact.
And professional hits the point.
I've never seen as surreal photography in my life before. You kind of have to see it for yourself to understand it.
Which is why I won't lose many words to describe this amazing work, just see for yourself and make sure to check the whole gallery, since it's full of more unbelievable sights of persons, nature and what seems as if both had melded into one.

The 10th and last artist in this journal is
bridge-troll 


Larry MacDougall is the Canadian artist, that hides behind the name of bridge-troll.
A very well chosen name, though, because his gallery is full of traditional paintings of spirits of nature, including some trolls.
I have to be honest. I would love to read a book illustrated with them.
Maybe there is one or one planned? Because there sure seem to be backgroundstories about the characters written in the descriptions.
But back to the trolls. I want to show you one:

[Author's Note]


Dear artists!

If you got any objections, such as you don't want to be mentioned in my journals or you don't want any of your pictures showing there, you can object to it in retrospect.

Please post a public comment to the concerned journal, in which you clearly ask for this and I will do as you requested within 30 days, unless I'm dead or otherwise not able to do so anymore.

If you don't want a specific piece to be shown, you can also ask me to remove or exchange it, via P.M.

I'm not gonna ask before I mention artists and pictures, though.

Attention, Journals incoming! by Jack-the-Shinigami


Hello, my dear readers! :)

So, as you may or may not have read in my _Announcement_ before,

I decided to try and introduce up to 10 artist and their work, as well as up to 10 topic-bound works to you, every month.

This it the first time I'm doing this and the 3rd journal I'm writing ever, actually the first one with a sense beyond introduction and personal stuff.
So I'm not going to expect too many comments or even favourites. XD
But I'm going to do my best anyhow, because the artists I'm going to show to you, truly deserve it. :3


This month topic is [Autumn || Fall] and this is the first part of it, where

I'm going to introduce 10 beautiful pictures of varying artists,

that match it.

Edit: The Second Part is coming this week!




I decided to divide them in 5 categories:

  • Photography

  • Landscapes

  • Craftworks

  • Animals

  • People

 


So lets get started, shall we? :)




◙ Photography ◙


Here I got two wonderful snapshots for you.



The first one, named “Personal - Catching the Sun“

Was uploaded by TwilightSaint

Personal - Catching the Sun by TwilightSaint


The bird-like creature in it, has the dying day in it's grasp and tries to hold on to it.
I think it's a perfect depiction of how nature – be it animals or plants – is trying to get the most out of the last summerdays right now and wants to hold on to it, collect the last of sunrays.

Fall is about collecting energy and supplies for the coming winter, after all.



~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~⸜



The second picture was submitted by ICFrac

And bears the name “Ice5152-Orange Cloud“


Ice5152-Orange Cloud by ICFrac


Maybe it's because it's the last chance of eating ice cream and popsicles for the year.

But I really think, the pic is great.
It unites a common feature of summer – ice – with orange, a colour, typical for resembling fall.






Landscapes ☼


Under this section, I found two really fascinating paintings for you. Both are classified as digital art.



Number one is called “Sunset wind” by GeneRazART


Sunset wind by GeneRazART


I had to look twice, to see, that the picture really is not traditionally painted, because it has a very soft, flowing and somehow serious touch, for digital art.

It shows a girl on a cornfield, interwoven with beautiful red poppies, that dance in the wind of what looks like an upcoming storm.
Yellow fields of wheat that bend under the force of the chilling wind are a common sight at the moment.
It is almost or in some places even beyond harvesting time and nature makes every blade of grass, every flower, every branch look alive.



~~~ ☼ ~~~ ☼ ~~~ ☼ ~~~ ☼ ~~~ ☼ ~~~ ☼ ~~~ ☼ ~~~ ☼ ~~~ ☼ ~~~ ☼ ~~~ ☼ ~~~ ☼ ~~~⸜



Number two carries the title “Sun light” and was made by ryky


Sun light by ryky


It is a very colourful picture and I would even call it a little abstract.
The intense colours, that seem to turn from a center of intense green into warm red and yellow autumn colour and vanish into a background of cool blue seem to get a hold of 3 seasons at once.

Summer may be resembled by the green and the down-shining light, that turns into yellow nuances and finally red, like fall slowly painting the world, while the blue winter, with it's dark and full sky is waiting behind.
The picture is full of amazing details, like a little person in the rays of light, every leaf and piece of grass seems to have a glow of it's own.
Not to mention the lake and mountains, that frame the picture!






Craftworks ⸔


Here are two amazing handcrafted pieces from Deviant artists for you to see!

Basically, I think it's the king-category of what a human being is able to do.
It takes the most skill and time, to produce something not only with colour or ink on paper or on a screen, but from sturdy materials, that need to be carved or bent or otherwise shaped to take the form of human imagination.

Not saying, that everything else doesn't means a lot of work, too.

But daring and being able to do this, is really something that not everybody is capable of.



The first work I want to present you was crafted by

creaturesfromel and is called “The fox's curiosity”.


The Fox's Curiosity by creaturesfromel


And curious it is, this beautiful sculpture.

I assume, it was made out of wood, by it's looks and despite a fox being one of the number one animals, that immediately make me feel like it's autumn, it's back is packed with roots and flowers and even a tree, all of which blend in perfectly with the fox's fur.

Once again a work of many details, in which I'm sure, many working hours, a lot of fantasy and most important of all, heart was invested.



~~~ ⸕ ~~~ ⸕ ~~~ ⸕ ~~~ ⸕ ~~~ ⸕ ~~~ ⸕ ~~~ ⸔ ~~~ ⸔ ~~~ ⸔ ~~~ ⸔ ~~~ ⸔ ~~~ ⸔ ~~~⸜



The second wonderful piece resembling fall was created by

LUNARIEEN and is called “MANGRIAL FYAR, Silver and Labradorite”


MANGRIAL FYAR, Silver and Labradorite. by LUNARIEEN


It's a beautiful pendant made of stone and metal.

The stone with it's red, brown and parchment-yellow colour seems to have autumn itself ingrained to it's nature.

It looks like many, thin branches with only a few red leafs on, against a dull, clouded autumn-sky.

The fragile silver frame gives an interesting contrast to that image, almost as if you looked into a magical pond, into some other kind of scenery.
Not only is the colour well chosen (gold would have blended in too much with the stone, imho), but the filigree work of the leaves and twirls is also something, I imagine must require a lot of patience and fine feeling to your fingers.




___________________________________________________________




Animals ⸎


I already mentioned to you before, that foxes are one of the animals, that make me think of fall almost immediately.

Two other with the same effect are crows or ravens as well as deer, because where I grew up, they usually were more present in fall, then in any other season.

It was a hard decision, but here are the two pics I chose for this category:



One of them is called “Forest” by Lovepeace-S

Forest by Lovepeace-S


I dare to say, this has an extraordinary touch to it and seems to be painted not digitally, but in traditional manner.

Beside it's overwhelming cuteness, the deer shown in it is painted with many ornaments, that partially remind me of “Boho” or “Ethno” patterns.

The chosen colours look natural, but at the same time convey a sense of sadness.
Personally, I have sorted it under the “Spirit” section of my favourites, some time ago, because in my eyes, it shows more then an animal.
It's like a rainy day caught in an embodiment of nature as an humanoid deer.



~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~⸜



The other one is “The Raven and the Fox O Ka Fee” by RubisFirenos


The Raven and the Fox O Ka Fee by RubisFirenos


This one was also painted by hand and is depicting a tale of a raven and a fox.
Please click on it (and all the other pictures, of course, too!) to take a closer look at it and the description. In this case, you'll find the story-telling poem there.
Beside the animals shown in this picture, I also think, the colours that were used; yellow, orange and green; are typical for the season and the shape of the picture as well as the fluent colours in it aren't something you find everyday, either.



___________________________________________________________




People ☻


For this section, I chose the term “People” over “Humans”, because I won't only show you portraits of humans but also other beings, that have visual similarities to human beings.


The first portrait I want to show you is
“Whisper” by LoranDeSore

Whisper by LoranDeSore



This picture shows us a girl or young woman, who actually made me pick this month topic.
She is an absolute autumn-type and everything in this pic, from the colours that have been used, to her hair, the clothes and jewelry she wears is matching that.




~~~ ☺ ~~~ ☻ ~~~ ☺ ~~~ ☻ ~~~ ☺ ~~~ ☻ ~~~ ☺ ~~~ ☻ ~~~ ☺ ~~~ ☻ ~~~⸜



The second one is a beautiful elf-like being, called
“Lady of the Forest” by Le-Regard-des-Elfes


Lady of the Forest by Le-Regard-des-Elfes


It shows a blonde female in a long, white dress. She is standing in a very livid looking small stream and is surrounded by a forest and birds, as well as orange leaves that are dancing in the wind.
On her head she is wearing some sort of hat, with either antlers attached or growing out of it.

Despite the very supernatural look the picture has to it, it also looks astoundingly real.

It is declared as a photo manipulation, but even if it is, it still makes me wonder a lot about the beautiful scenery and the hat and everything.
Altogether a wonderful picture!

Falling out of line
I alway like the ones best, who dare to step out of line and break society's ridiculous boundaries.
Here's a soul, that won't even stay in line with the masses in death. Admireable. ;)

Photo taken on an old graveyard with graves partially from late Roman and Celtic age.
The ones you see are from around 1800 though.
By now, it's overrun and "closed for business" of course, so no chance of getting buried there.
They also don't take reservations. But - fun enough - there is a house for rent in the middle of the ancient graveyard.
Not very expensive, either. Only obligation: The person living there has to take care of the ancient souls and their resting places.

Pity it's already rented by a family in 3rd generation and pretty unaffordable for a single person, though. :(

Hjs by Jack-the-Shinigami


My dear readers.

I'm back this month to try the second time to show you 6 beautiful pictures, I found on DeviantArt.

This month, to celebrate my favourite holiday of the year:

HALLOWEEN


The number of introductions used is symbolic, of course. Devilmote 


This time, due to the type of topic, I'm not going to sort the categories as orderly as last time.
Mainly you're going to find digital pictures in this one.

If you're looking for crafts or photography, the second part of the journal, which is going to follow on Oct. 30 or Oct. 31 will be more your taste. skull emoticons wink 



This time you are going to find:

  • Creatures

  • Landscapes

  • An Object.



I leave it up to everybody personal, to judge what they find scary.
Just know, I'm not going for horror or gore here. I've picked pictures, that I personally find beautiful and want to share with you. skull emoticons wink 



Now let's get started, shall we? Halloween Pumpkin, Evil Laugh 




Creatures ⸎


Three fellows that are beautiful – in some way.


The first one is called “Skelleton of Society” by Samize

Skeleton of Society by Samize


It shows a reaper, I'm sure of that. Or... maybe more then one.
But I'm pretty sure the being we face here was ment to reap something!
I really think, it's a deep picture, if you think about the deeper meaning it might have, considering the title. Which is – apart from the good looks – the main reason, why it's one of my absolute favourites. Our society really is so dead (braindead, if you will). Or murderous.
Or how the reaper has to treat every soul the same way.
Isn't that also an aspect of our society? Everybody being a “number”?

As you see, this beautiful work of art makes me think a lot, which is another reason, why I wanted to show it to you.





~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~⸜





The second picture is called “I'm lonely, too” and was created by CreepyChibi


I'm Lonely Too by CreepyChibi


It shows a whole different kind of death, more the kind of picture I have in mind, when I think of the reaper.
And just so adorably cute. :D I want to hug him and cuddle and kiss and... err.... I'm drifting off. skull emoticons wink 

The thing is... apart from looking really cute, I really depict the personified Death as a very emotional and lonely being.

I always try to summon my personal imago of Death, when I'm down and think about what he would probably tell me about life, the living and dying. Pretty philosophic, really.
My personal imagination of him also came to the conclusion that death would be very lonely, which is part of the reason, why I don't want to die.
That's why I love this picture so much and I really hope, you do, too. ;)




~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~ ⸎ ~~~⸜




The next picture was named “The Siren” by it's creator LennartVerhoeff


Siren by LennartVerhoeff


It shows a beautiful mermaid on a... oh wait, there is something in her face.
Oh no, wait, this IS her face.
She's still kinda hot, though. :D
Who dares to kiss this maiden? (And don't mind the skull, that's drifting by, it probably has nothing to do with what she had for lunch.)
Awesome painting, in my opinion.

Also, I think, her proportions are nice. Not such an Ariel for once, in lack of a swimming adequate for “Barbie”.

Landscapes ⸙


Here are 2 beautifully spooky landscapes I picked from my favourites to show to you.


The first one is named “Alone” by RadoJavor


Alone by RadoJavor

The dusky atmosphere is creating a feeling of nearing doom. You basically just wait for the wind's first harsh breath to initiate a huge autumn storm or worse occurences.
It always makes me shudder in a dark-expectant way, if I look at this picture.
Nevertheless the details in the pic are absolutely lovely – and realistic.




~~~ ⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~ ⸙ ~~~⸜



The other one is called “We belong dead” by @AlizarinJen

We Belong Dead by AlizarinJen


Again a picture that is more cute then scary, but it also bears a really interesting message.
I suggest, you click on it and read the thoughts the artist had while making it, for yourselves, because I don't want to accidentally repeat them wrong.
Beside me having a certain love for graves and graveyards (there is nothing more romantic to take a walk at!) I think Lady Monsterbride has really lovely looks in it and her two cats are really beautifully drawn and painted.
My absolute respect for that. In my experience it's not very easy to depict realistic cat-features.




___________________________________________________________






An Object ■


Beside the nice pictures above, I have something handcrafted in store for you anyhow.

It's the “Vampire slayer kit” made by ryoshi-un


Vampire Slayer kit by ryoshi-un


Looking at all the terrible dangers, that were presented to you above and that will soon follow in the second, far more scarier part of my Halloween Journal, you may want to obtain one of those lovely, handcrafted kits, to protect yourself and your loved ones against the yearly free-roaming of Halloween.

I'm sure the crucifix, bible, wooden stake and various other holy and not-so-holy objects, mixtures and herbs will provide maximum safety in all kinds of awkward situations those foreign creatures may get you into. ;)

- No, seriously. This looks absolutely amazing. I'd really love to have one of my own, to play with it, to be honest. You can really see, those things were chosen and built with care.
Again, amazingly realistic looks, as if it was indeed ment for use. - But who knows? Probably it is...

Who wouldn't want to kiss those pretty red lips?
Just imagine, what lovely things they could do... or... what murderous things, I guess...
Ok, let's ask this differently... Who would dare to kiss those pretty red lips, as lovely as they are? :D

Yes, as almost always, those are mine. Pixel Icon: Ink-Heart (F2U!) 
I was drinking a bit of homemade elderberry-juice, which is bloodred and I coughed and spilled some and that's how the base photo was born.
Getting in the mood for Halloween, I guess. ;)
There are going to be some more, similar works of mine until Oct 31st, so come and check on them, if you liked this.

(Also I guess, I should be mentioning, that with my hairs coloured in teal, it inspired me to take my make up and do my face like DC Joker and take some more pics.
I'm gonna do a series of me as him for Halloween, this being the first part.)

Btw, please check out my Halloween Journal on Friday 13th, which I'm going to upload in a few hours.
Here's a general overview of what my Journals are about and how to get to last month's journals:

You'd get a big, bloody kiss for that. :D

I've always wondered...
If they talk about seeing "the fire in your eyes" - do they mean the tears you can feel burning there?

Wheat / Autumn
Another part of my "Seasons"-series, which focusses on minimalistic, intense colours on black.

Here you can find the first two:
Fireflies / Summer
Cherryblossoms / Spring

So... I basically coloured my hair in intense teal strands.
(Between THIS and THAT)
Which also looks really good and intense on me in the light.
But, as soon as I'm trying to take a photo, my camera can't detect the intense teal-shimmer and shows dark/black hairs instead. Crying With Laughter Emoji iOS Ver

So I'm really proud of my new haircolour, but I can't really share it with any friends, because it's something between invisible and overvisible. Missing You

Gotta ask my Dad or some friend to take a pic.
Maybe it's just my front-cam that's making weird pics. Dead (RIP)

If not, though....
Any ideas on how to catch the colour? :3
I want to vanish.

Because I‘m tired.

I feel like I‘ve been on a long goalless walk for years now,
Without ever finding a place save enough to settle down.

I’m restless. I always sleep with one eye open at night.
I can’t find a place to call home.

I don’t even know what “home” is supposed to feel like.
I never learned about that.


I’m so tired.

Sometimes I wish I was like Grimm’s “Sleeping Beauty”.
Falling asleep for a thousand years, in a big safe castle.
With walls so massive and all around strong branches of thorns so high;
Protecting me from every outside influence, only letting people in, that are really meant for me.



Sleeping Castle || Safe Place by Jack-the-Shinigami



I don’t feel like dying, I love to live.

But I want to vanish inside myself.
With nothing of me left for the world to lay their fingers on, anymore...

I want to be safe inside myself, because I'm not on the outside.



J.t.S.
To Vanish
I've been writing this a few month ago, when I wasn't really well.

I've been working quite a while on a picture to add to the text:
jack-the-shinigami.deviantart.…

It's about PTSD and opening up about it, letting someone in and being hurt in the process.
A single question and a bit of returned trust would have been all it needed.
Not punishment for unquestioned assumptions, that turned out to be wrong.

I still can't believe, I trusted someone so much, who in return trusted me so little.
It's amazing, how the smallness of one side of trust, can break apart the biggest amount of trust, that comes from the other.
Fck, that hurt.
