Update: 6 March 2006A picture I tried to upload before, but somehow this was rejected because it wasn;t fantasy/horror enough.I'm not blaming anyone for this, I'll probably haven't made clear enough the figure in the middle of this scenery *points* is a vampire performing some kind of ancient ritual. Yes that chalice contains blood.AnywaysThe picture I have been working on for three days =) It's finished!! =DAnyways, like I said before, I was so inspirationless at the time, but I wanted to draw, so I asked Waldheri what I should draw, and he came up with this ^^There is about a month between the sketches and the final piece ^^; Media: A3 paper, lots o' pencils (mostly hb but I think I used h and b2 too), blood, sweat and tears ^^Because I was asked what the runes stand for, i will try to explain it here ^^I kinda randomly choose some runes, but I guess they still have a meaning and someone wants to know it ;)The book about runes I have is in Dutch, so the translations might be crappy, also i choose some meanings of the runes, becuae, well, to be honest I'm way too lazy to type and translate everything down ^^; (and I still have to do some homewekr too:P)ok, from left to right, from above going down, you have:Othila: homeland, ancestorial possession, heritage.Mannaz: the self, relative, friendship, spiritual healer, shaman.The bindingrune for inspiration(a bindingrune are 2 or more connected runes/runes that are put together that form "a powerful magical seal")Lagus: journey over water, fluid, imagination, intuition, artistic cretivity, journey of the soul.Dagaz: day, the begin and the end, safety, certainty, dramatical change.Ingwaz: potention, goal, intense creative activity.Algiz: protection, sanctuary, trust, prayer, friendship, mystical communication with the divine, guardian angel.The bindingrune for perseverance (a bindingrune are 2 or more connected runes/runes that are put together that form "a powerful magical seal")Teiwaz: victory, honor, justice, selfsacrifice, magical balance..::THIS PICTURE IS ALSO TO BE VIEWED IN MY DEVIANTART GALLERY, CLICK HERE TO VIEW A BIGGER VERSION::.

Story: F O R S A K E N - 00.

F O R S A K E N (D i v i n i t y D e s t r o y e d) Prologue. Dawn Of Humanity Comment: Yesh, a complete new story I've been working on this for a while now and finally I'm submitting it. I really hope you like it! Some of you might recognize the title of this story, and that's probably because I didn't think of it myself. Actually, I kinda lent it from Divinity Destroyed, a progressive metal band who are also the creators of the wonderful song Forsaken, upon which the complete story is based. I really liked the lyrics I suppose, and therefor I decided in a flash of inspiration I would write a story of it . As for the writing itself, don't be too hard on me, as English is not my first language (though I probably love it more than Dutch) and thus there will be flaws in my spelling and grammar. Also I'm not that talented in writing, especially not prose - so bear with me I'm in the middle of writing the first actual chapter, though I don't really like what I've got until now. But I'm sure this won't be the last you'll hear (well, read) about/of this! Enjoy (Oct 20 2006)

Song: Silently she calls

this is a funny one, written during the summervacation I'm correct... for a friend who liked a guitar playing guy in a story I wrote.. he actually wasn't very important (or, actually, he appeared in only half a page =P) for the story, but because she asked me to, I wrote some lyrics ;) (actually she asked for a story, but I was too lazy =P) The guy I was talking about just a few lines ago, is the leadsinger and guitarist in a band, he sings about the vampire that drank from him but let him live.. he should not remember what has occured, but he does and he wants to see her again... will she ever contact him? I'm not sure, i only have the feeling the vampire might be Inora (though this is not part of the story)
