Contest by the-captain-calamity from :iconthe-captain-calamity:

Sleeping time is art timeThis is the story of a rear event that happened to me. I was reading on Deviant art on my phone in the middle of the night. I was soon as I was ready on DA away to my bad to get some sleep before school next day. I was reading of a drawing contest from Ganjamira, and i was just "No, i cant draw, I cant do this" and I put it away. That was not the last I had to see to that contest.
I think it had gone five minutes, I could not sleep, my body was filled whit a strange energetic feeling. I open my eyes and steer on a strange creature that sit cross legged in the middle of my small room. His green green eyes steer at me, yes, green green eyes, they almost pop out of his head. Then the sharp blades that from his neck and down his long tail catch my eyes. The breath is stopping in my longs. After a little while i get my voice to work. "Hi" I say carefully "What is your name?". He tilt his head to the side and just look calm at me. His long straight hair flouting, it is a shiny black color. W

  Captain KharlaiThe sea smells salt and dancing calm around. Kharlai walk slowly down the pier while he look out on the big ocean. Suddenly a pain runs through his foot, he lift it up and hold it between his hands. A wound smiles to him. He look down on the planks in the pier and his eyes land on a big knife a couple of feet in front of him. A strip of blood is painted on it. Carefully he puts his foot down and take up the knife that reminds of the blades that pop out of his spine. He move the blade little from side to side so he can look at it. He look up and search after the owner of the knife. A man come up to him, look at him a little whit big eyes. Kharlai hold the knife up to him and flip his head to the side. The man look down and back a step. Kharlai look down on the knife, before he looks past the man to see if it is some other there that maybe owns it, he get a concentrated look in his face. The mans back little again and hold up his han from :iconimagikey:

   Women loves mans that don't talkKharlai smiles when the waiter comes whit the food. He take a piece and enjoying the taste. "Can i sit here?" Kharlai look up and smiles to the women that stands and smiles to him. He nod and take up the menu and give it to her. She look at it and when the waiter comes she order. Kharlai look at the little salad she get. How can she get unhugry of that? The woman push little on the salad before she look at him. "You are so nice, you don't say anything about my food habit." Ha smiles and take a bite of his own food. "I spotted this wonderful dress yesterday it was blue not like the kind blue blue but like this blue blue you can see in the nature when it is weary fine and you see the lady that tried to sell me it she was the dumb kind of girl in the awful cloth I know it is the store uniform but she has the responsibility to look good in it and talking about looking good Lucinda is looking awful this days..." Kharlai stop eating and look at the women, when are she going to take more air? from :iconimagikey:

Kharlai Contest Submission by Ravenwood777 from :iconravenwood777:

Kharlai Contest Story Submission   Something isn't right. I can feel it in my bones. Tonight is not a night where I will fly, feeling like a weightless feather, content and happy. This is not a night to dream. Tonight, I will sink like a rock, down through the fluffy clouds of my dream realm and into the blasted landscape of a nightmare. The sky darkens, and I squint, my eyes watering from the speed of my descent. In the distance, I can just make out a barren wasteland of black earth. Sharp spires rise up into the sky, and the ground is littered with bones. The rivers run red with blood, and the wind howls with the cries of agony from lost souls.
   I brace myself for impact, curling myslef into a tight ball, wondering if I'll turn into a human pancake. That certainly wouldn't be a pretty sight.
3... The ground is so close, so so close...
2... Up close, I can see the corpses of other humans who have not survived their nightmares, who have passed into the void during their sleep...
1... I close my

Welcome on my profile page! I hope you´ll enjoy your stay^^

:squee: Visit my shops! :squee:

Pendants, Tiaras, Posable Dolls and handpainted feather-quills!

:la: Jewelry and Accessory


I drew since I could remember. In the age of 12 I saw "Spirited Away" and began to draw in manga-style. Now I try to get a more realistic style, merge realism and manga-style.

I draw with ballpoint-pen and Copics, I´ve problems with PC-coloration^^

In the moment I work on two projects, an Fanproject related to Stargate and a gameproject, but my most works are Fanarts or as I want to call it "Tributes" to Films, Series, Games and Books I love.
For a year now I mostly do multiple artisan crafts - I love miniature sculpting and I´m always eager to try new media and techniques:la:

I draw many Fanarts to a lot of different fandoms, from Ghibli to Fallout, from Stargate to AssassinsCreed!
Look in my gallery first, not that you expect only Ghibli-fanart and I dissapoint you with a SciFi-craft x3

Since I joined DA I crafted a lot more stuff - I´m so inspired to try new things! *-* :worker:

Thank to every member of :devart: , you inspire me every day!

I´ll give if I got lucky to have some, please begg someone else, I can´t take it anymore...

If you have any question: Just ask!:dummy:
