Red DirtRed DirtRed Dirt by swansisters
I eat only because my body demands it.
In the South pregnant mothers eat red dirt
because it gives them what they crave. Their bellies are full moons,
their eyes constellations of what their baby will be.
Forget tossed stones or chicken entrails,
the lines of a palm already scarred
by machinery bits, a barbed wire chicken fence.
I already know what my future will be.
I was given paradise but it did not want me.
They told me if you are not strong enough this paradise will scar you
and it has. I was meant to be pregnant at the age of 16
and believe this child will be different from me.
But I escaped, relentless, demanding. "Do not give into it."
But paradise rejected me.
I am now too slovenly, scared and desperate.
I want to bite myself, taste red blood,
red clay until it consumes me. I belong to it.
I want the red clay until it exhausts me and whatever I may give birth to.
My scars like constellations have told me we are not worthy.
Troll pollution?What's up with all the troll accounts of really bad taste lately?Troll pollution? by Kawiku
I wish dA would simply ban these people, when they are polluting this site on purpose and act like total jerks screaming for attention? (I mean, it's not even funny at all.) There are these people I have to keep reporting, since they upload commissioned works and my clients are really unhappy about it. Once it gets taken down, I have to report it AGAIN AND AGAIN since it get reposted again!? I have MUCH better things to do than deal with kids like this.
And they accuse the real artists to steal from them when the trust is so obvious? What kind of trolling is that, are they even trying?
And the death threat jokes...
This have gone way too far beyond stupidity x__x
I'm not sure if people realise they can get in LEGIT trouble for doing things like this? (but they are probably too young and ignorant to care) are they really that desperate and have nothing better and productive to do? That's really... sad.
Now it's just extre
Prices are negotiable, these are a range or an example of my service:

$45 (full body with background and colored)
I have a wonderful fiance of 3 years, a daughter, and a son who I talk about often because they are the light of my world. I'm waiting for marriage until after I'm done with college but my university is expensive. So any donations or art commissions can help me finish my degree.
My degree was originally Animation but I keep working on games and getting business cards from people hiring game designers.
I rarely update because I get very distracted and have a different sense of priority than most people.
For now, I'm trying to get by the fear of being unfunny when I have a comment to respond to.
