FULL VIEW PLEASE


It is very difficult to find words that would belong here....
So instead, I'll simply rewrite a part of one of my own rhymes.

Hear my call, Thou, Spirit Eternal,
Inside my mind may Thine be let.
Thy beauty ineffable, infernal,
Once I witnessed never to forget.

Shine Thy Light into my soul
Where no sun can ever reach.
Tell me the truth that I have known,
The one that nobody can teach.

Be the guidance when I'm lost,
In Thy wings there is no sin.
Be what I love and fear the most
As in Thy Darkness I give in.

Then even in the deepest grief
This one hope of mine will linger.
What I give to Thee is my belief,
I speak Thy name, Lightbringer.



This is my very best work. By far. In every possible way.
Might just as well be the one for all my life.

References.... heh.
Done in PS CS6 with Wacom Intuos4 tablet.
Original size: 2997 x 3996 px. 8 hours.

Go on. Right now I'm composing a reply, but you can note me in the meanwhile, it's okay.

Mmm words cannot express how beautiful this is, the illustration and the poetry beneath it. I'm a poet myself, and I've been writing for about 8 years, but not even I could capture him so eloquently and magnificently in such few words. You, my friend, are an amazing individual.

This made my day. And my week. And my month, possibly *hug*
You know, I really gave all of my soul into this painting (and into the poem, too) and it feels like nothing else I've ever done. So I made myself a print, I framed it and hung it on the wall in my room.... and something changed ever since. I cannot describe it, it's subtle. But immensely powerful.

A great work indeed. Personally I believe you had better works but I think it's because i am much more fond of traditional art over digital.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=fo66F-… I'm sure you know this song. It's one of my favourites of all time.

However, this is not about skills or media, even if both are necessary they are actually irrelevant. I'm sure you understand.

Thank you for the song. I love those guitars.

Yes I thought you meant so but saying "the best work" does implicate technical aspect, at least to me.. Perhaps "the most important work of my life" would better reflect what you meant here?

You have a point of course, but I still mean it, and stick to my wording. This is not the most important thing here anyway.
