|My first original "novel", if you can call it that.|
"Both of us have information that could destroy the other. You have my surveillance devices, but I've got an entire file on you and your extralegal activities. And unlike you, I can prove that you are what you are. Those devices could belong to anybody, but this file is pretty specific. It couldn't be anyone else's but yours." Setting her features into a no-nonsense mask, she said, "You had better believe that I'm not afraid to use that information. I have a job to do, and believe it or not, Engelhardt, blowing your cover would make it so much easier on me. Because then me and my people wouldn't have to worry about you becoming a threat to Ukraine's national security, would we?" She was practically right on top of him now, looking him in the eyes, even though he had about ten centimeters of height on her. She could see it in the way he stood there now; he was mad. He was trying to hide it, but his fists were clenched at his sides and he was visibly tense. She knew that he understood exactly what she meant by the last sentence, but she clarified anyways. "We wouldn't have to worry about it, because you'd be thrown into prison for the rest of your life. You wouldn't be helping anyone from in there, would you?"
Based on a scene in Chapter Two of "The Engelhardt Encounters". Took about three days to complete.
YES, I know her hair looks absolutely terrible. >< I tried, dammit.
12 cartoonists were killed today in France, just for drawing pictures of the Islam prophet Muhammad. What kind of world do we live in where people are killed just for drawing cartoons? Why do people feel the need to kill over something so trifling? Over something so stupid?
This just sickens me. It's despicable. And honestly, it's part of why I am so against religion. Because religious beliefs should not mean more to people than human lives.
Most of what you'll find on this page is traditional/digital art, literature (that nobody ever reads), and photography. Sometimes football fan stuff, if I'm feeling up to it.|
My two most used aliases online are The Inimitable E. Cypher and The Infamous Black Valkyrie. You see anyone online with either of those names (in either those forms or any permutation of them), or work from dA on any other sites under either of those names, chances are it's me.
I refer to myself as a "Misplaced German"; I'm US born but I swear I should have been born in Germany.
I'm an atheist. I have no respect for religion, but I do try to respect religious people, as long as your beliefs don't interfere with my life.
I'm a long-time, die-hard, absolutely unapologetic Borussia Dortmund fan. I eat Schalke 04 fanboys for breakfast. Om nom nom.
I know my visual art style isn't the greatest. I am perfectly aware of this and I always work to improve.
I write what I want to write, and much like my visual art, I always work to improve. I appreciate any and all types of constructive criticism on both my visual and literary work.
...Seriously. Let this frustrated Schwarzgelben bastard know that their work is actually being read, dammit.
Mein Deutsch ist nicht gut. Ich bin noch am lernen.
