If you like my nature photos and have an interest in animal identification, science, zoology, etc - you can check out my profile on iNaturalist (and can help ID my photos ).
An InterviewHello all - you can find an interview I did for the Bondage-Dungeon group's Meet the Artist series here:
I'm considering doing some sort of an AMA here, if people are interested. And I get good questions.
Stealing Other People's WorkJust a reminder - I will immediately block anyone who posts other people's work in their gallery without permission. Besides the fact that it violates dA TOC, it's a shitty thing to do. Don't be an asshole.
Oh Hey, I Passed 2000 Deviations?I took a glance at my dA stats today, and realized I have over 2000 photos on here. Jeez. I guess I've been on here for quite some time, and it's added up over that span. I also haven't taken my old work down - while a lot of it is inferior in quality (one would hope I've shown some improvement, anyway), it's interesting for me to see that history evolve.
For what it's worth, I'm glad to be using dA to exhibit my work. Despite its ups and downs, I still feel dA can be a very useful place, especially for an amateur artist like myself. What I do is a hobby, but a hobby I really enjoy.
Thanks for everyone who watches me or otherwise appreciates my deviations. I know not everything here is for everyone, and certainly the quality is rather uneven, but it's me.
Not Dead Yet!I'm on a bit of pause right now as Ely and I are getting married very soon. That's taking up a significant chunk of my schedule right now, but I'll be back shooting a little later on.
Sandy was a bitch.Just catching up with everything now, as I finally have power and internet back after the storm. Unprecedented outages and damage across the state. We were pretty luck, escaping anything beyond losing power - some I know were not so lucky.
And yet, climate change continues to be willfully ignored by the major parties - so I expect the trend of increasingly violent storms in this area to continue.
Restrictive FashionI figured I'd try to start my first deviantART group, Restrictive-Fashion If you follow my work, I'm sure you've noticed that I often feature clothing that restrains the wearer in some way - particularly hobble skirts (thus my former username). I wanted to start a little community here to cover the topic - so if this is something you're interested in, I invite you to watch the group, or even contribute if you have relevant deviations.
A reminder about photo commentsVulgar/disrespectful comments towards the models will get you immediately blocked. Keep it to yourself.
Facebook PageAlong with the name change, there is the new FB page (since they don't let you rename pages):
Welcome to the Black Room - S+S becomes Black RoomIt's been long overdue - I'm finally changing the name under which my photography is published. The name going forward is Black Room Photo - the site is Black Room Photo. I won't be re-watermarking all the old images, and the old S+S name will still work, but this is it going forward.
Part of the reason I hadn't replaced the old name for so long (which was rather generic) is because I couldn't come up with something I liked enough (this is also why I don't have any tattoos ). I finally decided on Black Room, something that has meaning to me on several levels.
So, nothing is changed other than the name. Thank you everyone who has enjoyed my work, I hope you continue doing so.

why are you ruining MY FANDOMKJNDGKDI was talking about this with a friend and I just wanted to uhhh
vent here a little
and it's about fandoms so hERE WE GO
back in the days, like, 2014-2015, I was basically starting my life on the internet
I was meeting new people, discovering new games and of course, the fandoms
In that time I had entered the fnaf fandom and even though I become slightly popular in some Brazilian groups because of my comics I was a really intolerant person and just,,, kinda shitty in general (Ok, I was just a kid on the internet, y'know that things happen when you're a kid on the internet)
I used to hate EVERYTHING
humanizations, NSFW, gender swaps, extremely cute styles... Anyway, anything that goes against the horror theme of the game (which was very hypocritical because my comics totally broke the idea of the game)
if I was living that time these days, I'd say that they were "cringy"
the time has passed
and I realized how ridiculous it was to complain about DRAWINGS
and I also started to li

suBMIT yOUR ART tO mEMy offer is for you guys to create some sort of shitty picture (line art only) of your own design, to be added to my next video.
So I'm making Tom and Tord play video games and stuff and there's a frame right in the top middle of the scene. It's pretty noticeable, I suppose.
Nothing inappropriate, no shipping and nothing too detailed please! The more ironic, strange and weird, the better. I really suggest you just spend a max of 5 minutes on whatever you decide to draw.
I'll use - I'm guessing - maybe 60% of all 'submissions' I'm predicting I'll get. This might go down depending on if I get more submissions than I bargained for.
I wasn't going to do this, but I decided to because I'm sure you guys can come up with more creative things.

Juris Societas AuxiliumPlease note that the information you are about to discover is by no means common knowledge within the confines of Earth-27. Most of this is not even known to Oracle (though she is beginning to piece it together), Batman, and the world's foremost scholars. Pieces of this information are known to occultists and other scholars of the obscure and arcane, and ARGUS may have a few ideas. With that said, I will also be withholding some details for the time being.
Most scholars that studied the metahuman emergence and the corresponding rise of the superhero point to three major events:
1 - The meteor storm of 1978 which theoretically introduced alien particles into Earth’s atmosphere which interacted with the human genome, causing an increase in the number of persons with meta-genes
2 - The beginning of Batman’s career in Gotham, which inspired others to put on masks, capes, and costumes to take a stand against crime and corruption. Likewise, this is also refere
