The story behind it is there's no greater tragedy than a mother losing a child. If there's one "unhappily ever after", this is it. All wounds heal over time, and other losses of loved ones easier to bear as time goes, but a lost child is never forgotten by his mother. I didn't experience such tragedy (no babies had or lost) but I have friends who had and I can still feel their pain.

Done well over a year ago. But seemed fit to post around Halloween this year.

My boyfriend is a fan and has played it, but I've never even seen the game. This was inspired by a photo as part of an article on Batman Arkham City in the gaming magazine Level.

No postwork done besides brightness +10 and painting in a few strands of hair. I think the quality of my renders has vastly improved since AlfaSeed kindly helped me figure out a good set up of render settings, so this one goes out to them.

Originally I had intended for this to include a military aircraft, but it made the background look too busy so I discarded the idea. Model is not stock.
