Kohtalo by dahlig Kohtalo by dahlig
PLEASE READ THE INTRO FIRST!
Two lovers set apart by the God's enviousy, who trapped the boy for eternity in the misty forest. Lead by delusive hope, the girl begged the Gods to let her into the forest to find her beloved. For the girl's sadness and desperair were so overwhelming, the Royal Spirits agreed.
Without sleep or rest she has been searching for him throughout day and night.
Soon, as the months passed by, out of loneliness and obsession, the girl began to lose her mind. She is now speaking with trees and flowers, hearing her lover's voice in the nightingale's song, seeing his shape in blades of grass.
Her once great love turned into hatred, as in her madness, she has blamed the boy for the whole misery she was going through. She is now therefore hunting him, seeking revenge for her disastrous fate.

***
I'm searching for you - where are you my dear?
Is it your warmth I felt in the wind's morning breath?
And if this riven thunder was your cry of fear,
Was it me you were calling in the face of death?

I'm waiting for you - where are you my dear?
I loved you so badly you tore me apart!
But did you see my bitter tears,
when with starlit madness you have crowned my heart?


I cannot find you - where are you my dear?
You whipped me with sin and shattered my skies!
But my entity's rememberance will find you here,
and rusted cry will burn in your stoppered ears
Howling lullabies


So uhm yeah, I present my newest work...
It took me a long long time to finish, but at the end I am very proud of it. You will also be able to buy a printout of it soon...

Technical info: ~50hrs for the drawing process, ~3hours for the poem&story, lots of refs fo bg, lots of problems with textures ;)

WHAT THE FUCK, a half o f my work is missing now, after i tried to upload the jpg agan (I retouched it)

I thought I added lots of your gallery to my favorites years ago but I only had two.
This has always been one of my favorites.

I'll always love this one because my it has such feeling.
My hair often is styled kind of wild like this.
I do it on purpose. It always upset my mom.

her face reminds me of Amy lee from evanesceance... great job though... I love it... I feel like I'm looking at ancient art, considering no one has commented since 2007.... you should post some more recent work

Beautiful as always. :) I love how her features add to her personality, and her hair and posture and expression really tell her story. The bird is wonderfully done, as well as her dress, and the background is excellent. the arm holding the bird looks a bit fake, but at the angle that she is holding it, it's difficult to make it just right. Congratz on another excellent piece of art.

By the way, a Finnish word "kohtalo" means same that an English word "destiny". So, do you know Finnish or is this just a coincidence? :D At least you've said you're Polish.
