Denied for not sharing by joseph-sweet
Denied for not sharing
I was inspired to make this yesterday after a post I made on facebook which sparked a conversation about those stupid memes that try to make you feel guilty or like you're going to hell if you don't share some religious BS. Well, this is my artistic response. A little political cartoon, I guess. I made it tonight.

Voodoo Doll And Candle Test Render by joseph-sweet
Voodoo Doll And Candle Test Render
I made everything in the pic. I made the Voodoo Doll model first, then the pin, then the candle, and I needd a table for it, so i made that using a photograph I had taken of an old beat up table top. The wood burnings in the table were done in photoshop and pertain to my Last Days novel series.
All the textures are mine to start, but I did end up using some of the shaders that came with the new Daz Studio 8 Beta and the Nvidia iray render engine.

Thanks in advance for any favs or collects, comments, :D

I am an Artist, Author, Musician, Poet, from Upstate NY.
I've worked in television and radio, doing voice overs, making and editing commercials. I've even physically been in a few. I've been in a few bands. I have two short story collections and 2 novels published with more on the way. I write my own music, and do some amateur photography. I went to school for graphic arts and as you'll see, I do all sorts of different kinds of artwork, although I've been doing a lot more digital stuff lately.

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 28, 2014, 12:57 PM


Help us decide and have a say in which cover makes it into print.
Latest numbers are close to a tie again, thanks to the latest vote, with 24 green and 25 blue
Cover # 1
Deviant Nightmares # 1 Cover 001 by joseph-sweet

or Cover # 2
Deviant Nightmares Magazine #1 Cover 002 by joseph-sweet

Vote in the comments below. Just say green or blue to make it easier.




The anthology didn't really get all that much interest, and I'm trying to get exposure for you guys, so the decision was made to take Deviant Nightmares in a slightly different direction.

I give you... Drumroll (cue echo-effect and booming God-like voice)

Deviant Nightmares Magazine!:happybounce: I think I've fainted. Heart 

Deviant Nightmares Magazine - Issue #1 Coming Soon by joseph-sweet


Yup, we decided to publish a quarterly magazine.

what does this mean for you?
Well, it means that it will be a bit easier to publish you guys on a regular basis, and magazines are shorter, so... Offline and on here, we have enough stories for most of next year's issues. Between 3 and four stories per issue, depending on length of submissions, and articles written by staff. there's also opportunity for that now as well. If you write a news article that's relevant to the magazine, and want a shot, note me with it and I'll give it my consideration. 
We're looking for horror, dark science, apocalyptic, and dark fantasy fiction. The magazine may be themed on some months, but at other times will be considered general horror. Articles pertaining to this category and movies and books in that area will be considered.

We're currently looking for apocalyptic, zombie, vampire, werewolf and general horror stuff. The more violent the better, but it needs to be good.

Also art. Really anything goes. We may be featuring an artist or author in each magazine, so if you want your stuff featured in a magazine that could potentially be viewed by millions, get submitting.

I'll be changing the folder in a few minutes or making a new one for general DNM submissions.  DNM=Deviant Nightmares Magazine, of course. 

Submit anything you think will fit in there, articles, stories, art, photography, etc. And if you feel that you know an artist, author or both who is worthy of a magazine feature, shoot me a note.


I'll do another feature in the next day or two. hings have been hectic. 


I apologize for not being around to approve submissions for nearly a month. Some unexpected stuff happened.

For 2015 submissions - at least for the first couple of issues - think vampires and werewolves, but we aren't looking for sappy romantic stuff. No twilight-like stories. We're looking to go back to the roots of vampires and werewolves that made them terrifying to begin with.

Blood and gore and violence and darkness. Keep it coming. We'll take it to the masses and hopefully get you the recognition you deserve.

With some of the stuff I do, I can't use copyrighted characters and props and vehicles from video games and movies. Which is one of the only reasons I wouldn't use most of the stuff on your site. Except for a lot of the regular weapons, which, of course are very well done like everything else there. I just have to be careful, unless I'm doing fan work, in which case, I will look to you guys. I do check in there now and then.

Hello! It has been a while!! How have you been? 
I have been absent from deviant art for far too long and I might have missed a lot of things. But I'm finally at a good place in my life and ready to write more again! If we're still doing prompts or something like that, I' d love to be part of it. I really want to be more active in deviant nightmares, if that's possible :-)
Also, congratulations on your book being published!

Thanks.
I can start doing prompts again. Just no one seemed to take any interest in them.
Probably won't be prizes for a while. I'm broke. 
I'll go post one. :)

I don't want any prize for it, just writing exercises!
 (I can contribute for points if you want! I only have what I've won before but I don't have any use for them)

You don't have to. that's what it should be for is to help improve writing skills. People don't need prizes for prompts. They can get their work featured. that's exposure. That's good, right? I already posted something. The first thing to pop into my head when I made up the prompt.
