Color Me Blood Red by dahlig Color Me Blood Red by dahlig
The moon sets its blade upon my head
Lighting the depths of my empty soul
I am not alive, neither am I dead
Inside my mind's castle hollow bells toll
But when the wind blows its howling horn
Among the void you will be reborn

And when I feel your life in my veins,
The shattered sun will shed its bloody tear
Entangled by the endless beginning's chains
I'll silently whisper into your ear
That as I was once lifeless and torn
Within you in darkness I will be reborn



Technical info:
This work was done for Epilogue's "Season of Renewal" contest.
I've spent around 25 hours on this. Used tutorials for patterns, inspirations, refs for pose, dead body, studies of G.Burns, as well as the dress pattern from one of my older works... As the work was smaller, you might see some pixelation in a few parts of it, which I'm really sorry about.
Poem written in around 2-3 hours It's not too long but the contest rules forbid writing too long descriptions for pictures, hence the 2 "paragraphs".


This artwork, along with Samael, will be available as a printout, if I will someday miraculously get the prints account :)

PS. Yeah title is from Malice Mizer XD

Now i know. She reminds me of natalie Portman. Not that she looks like her just that she reminds me of her. The way she looks down at your through her eyes is really... well it works. :thumbsup:
