August 2014Dear friends/watchers
I hope you are all keeping well, I missed by 8th anniversay on DA back in June so I want to thank you for all your support, help, inspiration and advice, I would not be here had it not been of the incredible artists I have come across on this site . It is time I move on to a proper camera but I need your help buying one, I have a budget £500 and my brand of choice is Canon, if you have any suggestions please note me. I am under pressure, my Sister's wedding is less than 4 weeks away and I will need to have mastered my camera by then, If that means going on a crash course then I am up for it!
I apologise for my lack of activity I am snowed under at work and at home, summer is also a dead season for me, I am just glad we are in August, July was most unpleasant and depressing, the hot sweaty commute to work, the sleepless nights, I am looking forward ro autumn.winter!
Apologies for my absence.Dear all
I have been busy over the past two weeks as Im sure so have many of you, I think I might have missed important birthday for which I am terribly sorry, I will try to be around more often this week although the summer period tends to be my most uninspiring time!

Collection: In The Shadow of Dragon
In The Shadow of Dragons
"Is the time of daring deeds forgotten, and spent the fire of men? The bravery sheathed, the proud hearts withered? In the scorched trails of our foes’ fury, even wizards’ spells knelt and warriors’ will bent; yet Dawn’s struggle beneath the burning clouds, within the shadow of dragons, has won her the eastern sky. Shall battle drums thunder once more, and mithril–clad soldiers brave again the terrors of the skies?"

Collection: Alternative Universe
The “alternative universe” has long been a sci–fi trope, usually simply a good–guy bad–guy heroes and villains reversal. Like the Star Trek episode (“Mirror, Mirror”) in which a transporter glitch lands Kirk on an evil pirate “parallel universe” Enterprise where Spock is a goateed murderer with mutiny on his agenda. But real scientists have complicated things considerably, with “string theory” positing at least eleven (and possibly an infinite number) of “alternative/parallel universes.”
Once upon a time, we pondered our relative insignificance as sin

Hanuman by molee
There has always been this obsession with the others we share this planet with.
We communicate with them on certain basic levels and yet they inhabit a plane so different from ours: savage, instinctive, a life of sheer survival. At the same time they can do things beyond human abilities: fly through the skies, swim the oceans, apply t
Collection: The Steampunk Menagerie
The Steampunk Menagerie
The magic of thousands of years of natural selection and other evolutionary factors has created in all living creatures pretty much the optimal version of each for where each fits in the world. But never tell a human being, especially a steampunk, that there’s no need to fix what isn’t broken.
Here’s a collection of interesting imaginings of mechanical steampunk replacements for the somewhat mundane denizens of the actual natural world. For some people, especially some artists, until there’s been an upgrade or enhancement to anything, there just isn’t any “there” there.
