|All dreamers welcome here. We all have our own set of dreams just as we all have our own way of making art. This is a home for those just beginning and those already well on their way. Here's hoping all our dreams become reality.|
Anyone can join! We do not examine your gallery first. Just click on the join button and you're in. All skill levels and forms of art are welcome.
Please submit only your own works to our gallery.
Members are allowed to submit 6 works each day. To submit work to our gallery, you must be a member of the group.
Make sure to submit your work to the correct folders. Our folders are set up much like DA submit categories to make things easier. For anything you are unsure where to submit, we have a Misc. folder. If it needs to be moved our admins can do that for you from there.
The Featured folder is where a different member will be highlighted each week. The featured artist will be chosen at random each week from our active members. Please do NOT submit your art to this folder, but instead submit it to the gallery folder it belongs in.
Please remember we have a wide age variety here, so use Mature Filters as necessary. This keeps the group a environment for all members and locations.
If you would like to see us create a specific folder please send a note. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
If you have any problems or suggestions, please send a note to myself or the other Admins. We will reply and fix the issue as soon as possible.
Thank you all for being part of this dream!
Flightless || PROLOGUEIt was funny how one week could change so much in a person's life. Kaitlin tried not to think about how her world would never be the same again, but driving in silence, with nothing but her windshield wipers slapping across her window to keep her company left her doing just that.Flightless || PROLOGUE by jackofalltrades0097
She wished she could just turn back the clock to the previous week, back when everything made sense. The only way to sort any of it out was to just make a list of things she had lost, and a list of what she had now. She was feeling very glass half empty, with most of what she had now being something she didn't want in the first place.
'Last week,' she started in her head, 'I was graduating college, had a stable relationship with the man of my dreams, and an internship for a job I could see myself working in for years. This week-'
"How much longer do we have?" a tired voice from the backseat interrupted her thoughts.
She didn't look at him as she tightened her grip on the steering wheel of her jeep, staying
The MoviesAshley sat in a movie theater, her feet resting on the back of the red chair, watching the movie in front of her. She had brought popcorn, the movie popcorn, of course, which set you back a small fortune to have the delight of tasting $1 worth. She smiled at the cost of the popcorn, and the nagging couple over her shoulder. One lady sitting there quietly nodding and saying, not a word, her companion, talking at a great rate, in tones about subjects that were, to her bland and benign. For a minute the lady did not stop, her bellowing voice producing waves across the whole theater. Ashley sat there listening, hoping that she would not have to turn around and tell this lady to politely be quiet or worse.The Movies by tinaaw
Ushers moved up and down the seats. It appeared the movie was full to capacity. Their lights, flipping backwards and forwards across the darkened theater. With a slight shove, Ashleys' popcorn ended up on her lap. She had no companion, she just wanted an escape from the hospital, and esca
SheSheShe by TheDarkenedBride
I spent a lot of time waiting for better timing
For either cloudless skies or crystal rain
Looking for signs, signals and indications
My eyes got itchy and I swore I wouldn't love again
Shooting stars aimed too well and in a pompous crash
They mercilessly cracked the telescope
Moonstones mingled with broken lenses of a dream
I shook my head and left with no more hope
I burned the bridges and then made my way through smoke
To get a one-way-ticket for just me
The fool I was, the proud and stubborn man
Didn't count on that there'd also be - She
A mirage, daydream they might say... I thought that too
But only 'till She smiled and offered me a seat
And from that moment on She's become You
Undoubtedly we were destined to meet
I kept my vow, I haven't loved "again"
For You taught me the meaning of that word
Now I stand in front of You, dearest friend
Your trust with my devotion to reward
I'm aware of that time runs much too fast
The more during the happiest of our days
But love like ours
Born To DieBorn To DieBorn To Die by TheDarkenedBride
It feels like you can't wait
To erase me from your life
Wipe me off like a tear
Long before it got to dry
Rub your eyes, rub your heart
Perfect dream of you and I
While I pray and I cry
For love that was born to die
Wish I could go back to
When you stood here by my side
Honest words, open arms
There was nothing left to hide
Handful of fantasies
Days and nights of careless ride
Endless trust took its toll
Flawless picture slowly flied
Walking on earth like a ghost alive I
Cannot believe we have come this far
Running through memories I close my eyes, I
Want to escape kisses those leave scars
Deep in the dark with no light to guide me
I relieve sparks you want to forget
Set stars on fire and may they burn me
To the ground as if we've never met
Now we're both on our own
And I wonder whom to blame
For worthless promises
And that no one stays the same
I feel my colours fade
I'm a picture without frame
Masterpiece that's unsigned
Missing letters of your name
Love should bring happ

Behind The LensHello everybody, welcome to my darkened realm You're used to me sharing various kinds of journals, so hopefully you will like this brand new concept :iconnerdplz: Once in a while I'll be interviewing a friend whom I find special in one way or another You'll get to know a bit about them, their art and what makes them stand out to me.Behind The Lens by TheDarkenedBride
Luckily the first person I'm going to introduce you to is a great guy who made it so much easier for me to come up with good questions. He has a sparkling sense of humour, he likes Van Morrison mushrooms :iconshroomplz: and on the other hand he doesn't like me thinking too much about everything... well, too bad for him :iconpotatodanceplz: Last but not least he's a fabulous photographer (he tends to be modest about his skills, then better don't listen to him )
Please welcome :iconbuntcone:
:iconthedarkenedbride: You said you started taking photography seriously about 2
Help a friend get over the loss of her pet/CONTESTArtists, please please read this:Help a friend get over the loss of her pet/CONTEST by Malleni-Stock
I want to share this contest with you and it would really mean a lot to me personally if you took part,
and it would mean even more to NarsisBlack, a talented artist and great member of our community.
She has lost her beloved cat these days in a horrible way and is going through some hard times now.
To get over the loss easier and have some nice memories, she asked for some support to hold a contest.
Some people reacted to that in a really rude, respectless and insensitive way which made me really angry and
disappointed about some people in the community.
Please help her get over this bad experience and take part in the contest.
The task is simple - manipulate one of the photos of her
little 'Zazzles' to create a beautiful memory of him.
She is taking prize donations as well (:

This article discusses the world of online MOOC's – Learning online – a personal look at two current MOOC's and what they offer your art.
I have recently been fortunate enough to have discovered online MOOC's – Learning online from top professionals in many fields. I learnt this through my social network connections and had some spare time, and thought – "It's Free" I will give it a go.
I signed up for my first online class last September, called Modern and Contemporary Poetry from University of Pennsylvania or 'Modpo" as it was happily referred to by the other 20,000 plus students completing the course online.
The course was free.
