Boundaries are fleeting in the Realms of AbyssalEros, and appearances can be outright misleading. So take a dare and enter the Creepy Toy Store.
Let me be your host while you warm yourself at the cozy fires of hell with a funny little story I wrote last year for Renderosity’s annual Holiday contest.
The Long Silent Night (English Version)
Die Lange Stille Nacht (German Version)
Today is the day — or better, tonight is the night of the nights!
Under the presumption that Halloween derives from the old Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of the winter, this festival lasts from sunset to sunset, as this is how Celtic days began and ended.
According to mythology, Samhain is a festival for the dead, as it is a time when the ‘doorways’ to the Otherworld open to allow supernatural beings, including the souls of the dead, to come into the world of the living.
It was a time of great bonfires and offerings. Offerings to appease the Aos Sí, the spirits or fairies of the Otherworld, with food and drink, to ensure the people and their livestock survived the winter. This liminal time also allowed dead kin to revisit their families, who offered them hospitality in their former homes.
Usually, the Aos Sí are pleased with the typical offerings of food and drink, but some expect to share more intimate moments with the living, especially those that feed on sexual energies.
So be ready to appease the Aos Sí properly when they come to ride you!
I was swamped with work in recent times — and still am — so sorry for my lack of posting here. Continue reading “About past contest entries and more”
I have not expected to win another contest — making third place once more — so soon again, or ever again. I am awestruck that my humble digital art skills can meanwhile create images that many people like. Thank you all! Fiery hugs from the blazing pits of the Abyss for all of you! (Do not worry, the fires only hurt if I wish so.)
My contest contribution (#24) is called What makes humanity disappear … and can sadly only be seen like all the other beautiful images on the Invisible Human Contest page if you have a Renderosity account.
However, as usual, I will publish my image later on, after they made their community post, on my Renderosity Gallery and my DeviantArt page.
A few days ago, I created a publisher account on itch.io for AbyssalEros.
Today, I spend most of my time doing the final polishing and adding project pages for all of my published short stories. Continue reading “AbyssalEros invades itch.io”
Last weekend, I finally found the time to make the final changes to the German version of my Costumes, Cauldrons & Concoctions contest story Return of the Witches, with which I made the first place at Renderosity’s Annual Halloween contest last year.
I had to do this long-neglected task, as I needed to apply the last-minute changes that I had done to shorten the English text under the 1.000 words limit. Otherwise, the German and the English versions would have been slightly different.
Meanwhile, I have uploaded both language versions and incorporated them into my stories page.
While I know that this year’s Halloween is still far away, I hope you will nonetheless enjoy this creepy little story about wicked witches.
My image “An Evening at the Monsters’ Rest” made third place in Renderosity’s Animals & Creatures contest.
As usual, I will later publish the image on my Renderosity Gallery and on my DeviantArt page; until then, you sadly need an account to see all the excellent entries of this contest.
As you know, I recently partook in three contests that Renderosity held.
Meanwhile, all the winners are announced, and I am happy to tell you that I made third place in one of them: 3D Dolls Contest.
Sadly, you need an account to see all the lovely images, but take a look and enjoy them if you happen to have one. And do not forget to look at the other two contests and their winners: My Greatest Catch Contest and Pin-Up Poster Contest.
As you probably know by now, I regularly partake in Renderosity’s contests, either in words with my stories or with colors with my 3D artworks.
I hugely enjoy competing with all those fantastic artists while honing my skills and getting better with what I do.
Recently Renderosity has held many contests that are now up for voting; the results will be announced around Valentine’s day. Continue reading “About Dolls, Pin-Ups, and My Greatest Catch”
I recently created a series of images for the Society of Lust, which I called the X-Seat Series.
The above image is a bonus of that series I did as Farra Triss wanted a photo of the demon of dark lusts himself.
You can find the images in half the resolution on my Slushe profile or in full resolution (1483 x 2400) on the Patreon page of the Society of Lust.
