Short stories, Tragic endings by soad2K Short stories, Tragic endings by soad2K
Did you ever look, did you ever see that one person,
and the subtle way that they do these things and it hurts so much? So much like choking down the embers of a great blaze.

For a freind... quick work, also possibly a poster thing for my room...


stocks [link]

hope you guys like it.. alot of the details were lost in sizing it.. originally was 3000*4000 or so...


Thank you all for the favs and kind words.... closeups can be found here : [link]

wow...what can I say? amazing! I like how you incorporated the colored strands throughout her body, it makes the image come together. I also like specifically the eye part because it gives it an abstract feel. The bird also adds some surrealism which is great for grabbing someone's eye! The red color adds focal points around the piece, which I just so happened to notice the red beads moved my eyes across the piece in a circle, bringing my eyes around her head about back to the crow. I like how you used a profile of the woman. For some reason profiles have always given a strong presence in a photograph! Again, great work. Definitely one of my favorite deviations ever!

For as much as I love Autumn,
I'm giving myself to Ashes.

Your title is referenced from possibly my fave autumn to ashes song, I also like to use they're lyrics in my work, its nice to see someone else who appreciates this

I can imagine that i am not the only one commenting your work, but you are my inspiration and my movitation to continue in whatever project I turn into.

I know that you write tutorials on creative fan (whom are great by the way) but I still cant manage to achieve a technical level you are at. (dont know if you have seen my work here on deviantart...) I must say that i dont have a lot of time to design atm and that I started doing degital art only 2 years ago but I have to ask you the question i have meening to do for quite a time now:

would there, by any chance be a way to teach me some techniques or give me some insights on how you work on a project. I know you probably get that quesiton a lot and that may be the reason why you started writing tutorials.
For example: on what base do you start a project? why do you pick a sertain stockphoto to start with...(i have literaly 1000 model photos from shutterstock but everytime I intend to pick one in order to create something I end up thinking that It wont turn out the way I would like it to...end thus go look for another one...)

I might come over a little desperate :) wich i am not :D I just think you are an amazing artist and to be honest I am a bit jaleous to see you create pieces I would like to be able to create aswell...as your artstyle often matches mine...

anyway, either way...you are an inspiration for me! and you do great stuff for the digital art community.

thumbs up dude.

Hope to see some more stuff from you in the future....

well thank you sir :)

and yeah i have seen your stuff quite a bit around here ;)

But to be frank, im not sure what i could teach or show you... i mean your last piece [link] is amazing... point blank...


do you have Gmail? or Gchat? if not you can hit me up with a email.. i reply to those much faster than i do comments on DA (i can check my email at work :P ) its soad2k@gmail.com


like i said, im not sure what i can help you with, but hit me up with any questions you have and ill do my best to answer them :D

Hi soad,

first of all sorry for this EXTREMLY late reply...ive been away from dA for a while + had about 15000 messages in my mailbox so had to clean out^^

Thanks for you comment above, much appreciated :)

One question I do have tho is: do you use a tablet for some of the effects in your work? Also, how do you search the internet like istockphoto for great stock? cause when i search istock i intend to spent hours and hours looking for that stock that i need but end up taking another one because i dount find exaclty what i needed....then I see some of your works and stocks used and im thinking, I didnt see those images??? where on earth did he find those?

Anyway...thanks for your support, and keep up the great work dude!!

Hey i have been there :P


i havent used a mouse (at all, for anything even surfin the web) for about a year and a half or so, whenever the batteries died in my mouse :P. I do alot of my stuff with the tablet, specificly the smaller detaily stuff.

God i hate lookin for stock. I spend hours looking for one and i never find that perfect one or if i do... it dosent work :P!! I really dont know any advice on this that i can give yah man, just get something to drink, a good playlist and waste away some time :P

Anytime :)

Yea stock search is a pain in the ass :) good to see that I am not the only one struggeling with it ;)

So i guess I should buy me a tablet...any advice on that? I guess a WACOM? anything else I should take into consideration?

Well im not sure xD

I had a genius which worked alright... but broke or... well stopped functioning the way it did in the beginning rather quickly..

I now use a Wacom Bamboo, its not outrageous as far as price goes and works great for me.. I would say choose something relatively cheap first, because you never now, you may not like them at all :S
