Shadowness - Doberlady I am self-taught... I love dark pencil works. I am deeply grateful for all support, especially for the comments as I learn through feedback. I a... en Beauty and the Beast <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br />Definitely my favorite tale I remember from childhood. For me the Beast was always more intriguing and alluring then any dull prince charming. (I fairly early discovered I differ from other girls my age... I was the only one disappointed at the end when the Beast turned into a mere human...) If I could have that story the way I want, a charming prince would steal Belle, believing he is saving her from a monster. Belle would stab him at the first occasion, wounding him, escaping right back to the Beast's castle, taking her own faith in her own hands, actively shaping it, not being just a mindless price to a male hero (as most fairytales portray women). The price would surely followed her back to the castle, where the Best would teaching him an important lesson. No wonder the theme of Beauty and Beast found a way into my own stories. It took shape of Lady Amara and Azadir the White Wolf. She is a girl with the gift of the second sight, and prophetic dreams. He is a werewolf who fell for her. In my stories she was not kidnapped, but she did leave Azadir at one stage, they were eventually re-united, but the ending was bitter sweat... The moths are drawn to her, because she is the Light. I really hope you like it. I put all my heart into it... and a lot of time... Have a nice day. -+-+-+- pencils contrast adjusted after scanning Used reference for the Beauty : from :devmahafsoun: gallery, the most beautiful and elegant model I have seen.

Rusalkas live at the bottom of lakes and rivers. In the middle of the night, they would walk out to the banks and dance in meadows. If they saw handsome men, they would fascinate them with songs and dancing, mesmerize them, then lead them away to the river floor to their death. Perhaps one day I will find time and patience to color it. -+-+-+- used reference for the face: from :devfaestock: wonderful gallery Fri, 09 May 2014 03:30:06 -0400 Shaman <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br />I knew a piebald horse once, named Shaman. None ever rode him, as he was too young, and then he was sold to a different stable and I never saw him again... but I could never quite forget him... -+-+-+- reference : Sun, 02 Mar 2014 00:28:23 -0500 A Night ... <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br />...when witches and the dead walk free.

When the stars fade and the moon shines no more, when only dark suns rise and set, the Gate will open. Lament thy fate Man, for the earth shall be void and cast for eternity into the abyss of decay. And we shall know the night without cease. He shall return, and armed with vengeful talons He shall smite the Elder Lords and rend the soul of Man. She has heard His call, her eyes have seen forbidden Signs, she fears not the voice of the nocturnal wind... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- She might have lost sight in her eye, but it was granted another sort of vision, of things to come, and of distant places... Strange things she hides in this underground sanctuary her teacher had built, till they are big enough not to fear any man. She goes by Caligo... though she used to have a common name, yet it is now long forgotten, as her mentor and teacher wished it... He was not much of a killer, more of an ordinary grave robber... and a pervert and a madman. No wonder he had rotten in an asylum... But she endured... even found a new, more sinister mentor... but that is another story and yet to be written... Thank you for watching and have a nice day Caligo belongs to me. Caligo stands for Darkness in Latin. -+-+-+-+- pencils on Bristol Board paper A4 310gsm Wed, 25 Sep 2013 04:39:57 -0400
