Im-Mortality by Iardacil Im-Mortality by Iardacil
Fufill your destiny
is there within the child
my storm will never end
my fate is on the wind
the king of hearts, the joker's wild
but we don't say goodbye
i'll make them all remember me

Immortality
i make my journey through eternity...

Celine Dion- Immortality


This is for as he show me that dark art can be beautiful :hug:

Also, this is for and contest "Good vs Bad"
Edit: Got third place :D

First, I wish to explain the title. The genial idea is from my sister ~l6visyda. First, when I was making it, I had the idea that the title will be "Guardian of the Darkness" but after I had finished it was much more than I expected, so I just felt, I cannot keep that kind of simple title for a work what deserves more. So she came and suggested that brilliant title. The work and the next "guardian" are opposites and on those works, there is also opposite, by the figure and her reflection. Even if we wish, we cannot escape from ourselves. When we try to do the best and hide our innerselves, our reflection will betray us. We cannot control everything around us, there are always unknown factors, surprises... And there is no way to run away from the path life has meant for us.

The one who walks on water is mortal. Her soul can be ripped of, she is just flesh and bone as we all. But the legacy she carries with her is much more than she. The immortal shadow, always guiding her, showing the way what she must follow. Cursed and blessed by that ancient destiny what cannot be denied. Death and end is so natural even if we don't sense it. And she is the guardian of the darkness, protector or the souls whose mortal journey has ended. Nothing can come and harm them as long as she is still there...

I really like this one, hun :hug: Everything blends so nicely, and the impression of mist and the colors give off a great atmosphere. The reflection is very well done.

Her hair is very dark/has very much contrast compared to her surroundings, but apart from that I can't find anything else to put my finger on. You did an excellent job and it seems you're improving steadily at this :heart:

I am learning.. and I learned so much with this.. As I do not manage to draw the hair by myself I have used brushes mostly.. and they work well with dark/black hair.. In next manip.. I learned how to almost make blond hair with those brushes.. but i defenetly should learn how to paint them.. would make my life so much easier..

Always on the progress.. always...
