This is beautiful like I turned the brightness up on my computer screen during a vicious headache just so I could look at it properly. ...

We do not see things as they are. We see things as we are.
- Anais Nin

I've been on dA since 2005 and a senior member since 2007. I've been a Community Volunteer twice, first looking after Photography > Horror & Macabre (November 2008 - June 2010) and Photography > Darkroom (June 2012 - May 2013). I've also adminned various groups over the years but these days I'm pretty much just here to share and enjoy art.

As well as professional photography, I manage online communications for an art performance charity, run a little techie business with my husband and am also studying for a BSc in Forensic Psychology. Hobbies include obsessing over entertainment media and literature of a dark nature, writing (under a pseudonym, because I like to compartmentalise) and playing with fire. I share my home with one large man, two small cats, an albino axolotl, five goldfish, a family of aquatic snails and more computers than two people realistically need.

Because Vikings

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 23, 2015, 3:06 PM

I've been doing some binge watching of Vikings today, so couldn't resist featuring
some stunning Vikings fan art from DA. Look at these beautiful pictures!

Vikings : Lagherta the shield maiden by GakggGak
Icy fire by Ssarawolf
Vikings Tribute by ronmonroe
Ragnar Lothbrok - Vikings by Greg-Opalinski
Athelstan by Vaan37
Vikings by lilhydra

[ Shower of Blood skin by RockstarVanity with Exodus 7:19 ]


So excited about my photography blog's new custom domain, :boogie:
I'm now on Ello at because I've got the flu and when I'm stuck inside I spend too much time on the internet.
Blog time! How I set my prices for professional art photography
DA is exactly what I needed to get my brain out of essay writing mode and into creative arty mode.

Thanks for the watch! :heart:

For some reason I thought you already were :lol:
RockstarVanity Featured By Owner May 23, 2015  Professional Photographer
I thought I already was too, but I'm silly. Ages ago when I wasn't using dA much I went through my watch list and thought I'd stopped deviations etc from appearing in my message centre since I wasn't checking it anyway. What I'd actually done was unwatched a whole heap of people and I'm only getting around to hunting everyone down again now that I'm back using dA regularly.
Anoya Featured By Owner May 23, 2015   Photographer
I haven't had that happen to me before, thankfully. But there were several occasions where I was absolutely sure I used to watch someone but they didn't appear on my watchlist. I don't know what happened there. I've heard more people about it as well D:
