EDIT: :iconsythgara: had a fix, under your browsing settings you can swap from infinite scrolling to page based scrolling and it fixed the problem for me!

When did DA become so damn slow? I did not fave so many amazing pieces of art just for fun, I wanna look at them! And not wait half a fuggin hour to peruse my faves!

I may end up pushing my art more on other platforms if things do not change.
Hivemind
Personal sketch done a bit ago... sneaking onto the web now. (Some Beserk love in there).

Story Quip by :icondroneunit-33:

Strange insects crawled and scrambled across the jagged walls of black rock. Rotting husks of ancient colony members littered the floor, crunching under foot. Large shapes were blanketed by both the living, and the dead; shadowy mounds, unnervingly humanoid in shape. Deeper into the caverns, the walls begin to warp and shift. Thick layers of black, chitinous membranes coat every surface. Tunnels and openings leak either more members of the swarm, or a dark, ashy smog that pools in the crevices and cracks of the ceiling. Lining these walls are long, insectoid limbs. Fastened to the nests via webbed veins, they twitch and squirm before vanishing into mounds of layered nest. The further in you go, the more frequent these legs appear on the walls. Intertwining, crossing over each other, conjoining and separating in a labyrinth of hard scales and flexing muscles, worming their way across floor, ceiling and wall alike. Eventually you come to a wide opening, leading to a vast expansive cavern. Insects cover the floor, shaking and writing, their shining plates chittering loudly in the still air. At the centre of this room, rooted to the spot by a pillar of stunted flesh, tendrils of chitin stretching out from it lies the Hivemind. The source of the swarm. The fat spider at the centre of an ever expanding web. Riddled with holes that weep ichor, pus and maggots. Encased in a strong armour of boney plates, long legs flail aimlessly from it's back, unnatural and without purpose. But it's face draws your eye. Empty of any semblance of humanity, it is littler more than a mask. Rotted teeth pressed together in a wide grin; hollow eye sockets stare into an endless oblivion. This... THING... marks the crowning achievement of the swarm. The pinnacle of organic manipulation. A slave to it's own will, the Hivemind lives for the swarm; and the swarm lives for the Hivemind.
