This is my gallery,
It holds some of the things I made over the years, though most of what I make never gets in here. Usually because it trades hands before I get a chance to take a decent picture.

Random Favourites


I comented on one of these, and rules stated I do one too. So here it goes ^^;

Comment to this journal and I'll...

I. Tell you something I learned about you by looking at your DA page.

II. Tell you a color you remind me of.

III. Tell you Element I think you belong to (e.g. water, fire, air, etc.).

IV. Tell you what comic, manga/anime, or video game character you remind me of.

V. Ask you a question, and you must answer.

VI. Tell you something I like about you.

VII. Give you a nickname.

VIII. Tell you the object that is to the left of me.

IX. Tell you what food/ flavor/smell you remind me of

hey there unreal hunter!

how is it going with the costumery? :D

btw I wondered if your going to elf fantasy fair this year too?  :squee: 
unreal-hunter Mar 11, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Hello Daemonium ^^
costumery is going slow as usual. little time, little energy and WAY TOO many Ideas to give them all the attention they deserve.
probably something you recognise, and if not, you will :P

but yes, I am in fact going to the EFF haarzuilens this year. I will be there sunday sporting a lovely red pacman ghost costume (doing a group thing for fun). Last year a friend did a pacman with 1 ghost. now we've got 3 ghosts filled and one on Maybe

So how's things on your end? 
DaemoniumNocturnal Mar 11, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
aha I do recognise it indeed, I especially have this with artwork :faint:

cool! and that sounds like a cool costume, I always liked the idea of a group theme^^ would love to see the final costume :)

its going pretty well atm, also with costumery. I'm coming close to finishing that ribcage I once mentioned to expand on my demon costume, and it started to come out rather nice :)
unreal-hunter Mar 12, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
costumes ARE artwork ;)

yeah, it's more for laughs than being awesome, we're not doing super realistic or high grade ghost outfits (keeping it simple means we'll have it all in the same style, with more people working on it.)
and don't worry, I'll be sure to show you some of it.

hmm, I do seem to recall us talking about a ribcage. you should definately show some of it here. I'll be very interested in in ;p
are you aiming to finish it for the EFF, or do you have other plans?

Let's just pretend, it's still yesterday shall we, 

Happy Birthday!! *pops party popper* Surprise 

(I was too busy with evil stuff to come only at any time yesterday)
unreal-hunter Sep 23, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter

haha, thanks man.

It's okay, last time I checked DA was yesterday morning, so you're right on time ^^

so how's life?

Sc-NickNamer Sep 23, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
You're welcome.
Then I am certainly on time, and happy I am XD.
life's quiet, not much going on. School, working, more school, some video games, more working, some hanging out with friends and did I mention work?

and your life?
unreal-hunter Sep 23, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter

same, but without the school (cause I'm done) and less hanging with friends.

but I substitute that with crazy experimentation :evillaugh:

'no time for solitude, my chaotic mind has plans'

Hello Maikel.

I like your style, got here through caro. She's been showing some of your awesome stuff to me. So well. here I am.

I'll be watching you.

BTW, we share the same favourite quote.
unreal-hunter Apr 21, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
hey bro, well met ^^

She's been showing stuff eh? I'll have to confront her with this grievous oversight.
XD just kidding, I feel honored ^^
I do believe I've seen your name pop up here and there. you're her favorite classmate, right?

MHUHAHAHAHA :evillaugh:
Sc-NickNamer Apr 22, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
well met indeed.

Yes she has been showing some stuff, as she always does XD. she also told me to contact more dutch deviants and to go with her to one of the Dutch DA meets. She is kinda pulling me into the world here.
And yes I am one of her classmates and I hope that I'm her favorite one :D (who doesn't right?)

Anyway, you'll probably hear more from me, mhuhahahahahahahaaaa *choke* ha. ha.
