That is definately a good idea, there are so many other media types that can cause much more horror then just photography, though photography is typically the strongest.

I'd say stick mainly to photography, but perhaps have a section set aside for other mediums maybe :)

That would be brilliant!! :D

I would like to do one of my essays on you too btw. Because you have such a major role in the community, and it seems my school/COMMUNITY really likes to use the word.. COMMUNITY...
It really annoys lol. But you're a great example :3

You could even do special features now and then with all kinds of media but not always... perhaps.

You get great horror sculptures on dA. Some of them are even very photo-realistic, if that helps.=)

I would love to see some of those.

I actually think that maybe including it as a sub-section would keep the focus on photography, and but integrating some other types would be great to see - I think it would bring people out of their little holes :D I know I very rarely look at anything outside of Artisan Crafts, and costumes in particular, but you've actually encouraged me to look around a bit more at what other chanels have to offer, and I've been pleasantly suprised.

I'd say, see what you can find out there, and run with it~ if it seems hard to find other things, or if they seem to be distracting away from the original intent, then maybe put them in their own article?

((sorry - I'm just rambling now, so if that made no sense, please ignore it XP))

tbh, i'd rather see just photography. maybe another one with different media. i like the fact they're photos because you can see how creative people are. the impact of your Vicious Little Whispers would be so much less if it was a photomanip. i feel stuff like that should be in a league of its own. not necessarily more superior than other medias, but it just shows a raw creativity.

I think it would be a good idea. Crossing galleries will bring people out of their own niche and perhaps see things they would otherwise miss.

I was thinking that as well. It's actually your fault! I read your stock interview and started thinking about the cross-over between horror photography and horror photomanips, the fact that people do take horror photos as stock not just as finished art. And then people manipulate those images, or draw from them. All of us dark artists are a little bit misunderstood so we need to band together :)
