Melodies of Life by Iardacil Melodies of Life by Iardacil
Alone for a while I've been searching through the dark
For traces of the love you left inside my lonely heart
To weave by picking up the pieces that remain
Melodies of life--love's lost refrain

A voice from the past, joining yours and mine
Adding up the layers of harmony
And so it goes, on and on
Melodies of life,
To the sky beyond the flying birds--forever and beyond

So far and away, see the bird as it flies by
Gliding through the shadows of the clouds up in the sky
I've laid my memories and dreams upon those wings
Leave them now and see what tomorrow brings

In your dearest memories, do you remember loving me?
Was it fate that brought us close and now leaves me behind?

Emiko Shiratori - Meldoies of Life

For sure this isn't the best piece I have made.. nor the most original one but I really needed to make this one. I needed colors.. I needed something bright and what has hope.. I needed to prove myself I still can make it as for past weeks.. I have tried, tried and not managed to come up with any work good enough to show here.. Sometimes I just end up in those moments where nothing I make is good enough.. has not enough emotion.. has nothing I would love..

So this one.. I wanted to remind that how down and desperarte I feel, there is always light.. there is always beauty and spring somewhere and every endless winter will find its end sooner or later and even if sun sets today, tomorrow it will rise again.. and maybe tomorrow is a better day..

Maybe it is simple.. simple meaning.. simple piece but it's for me.. This is what I need at the moment.. in this grey break of winter.. soon it will be spring.. soon there will be sun again.. I just have to keep going until then..

This is amazing. All the lines are so smooth, so fluid. The points of the lines are exactly where they need to be, and your shading work is really good.

Plus, you know the song :D

I love this image. Although it makes me a bit sad. Even though the image is so bright and beautiful, the back of the girl starring over the cliff with the wind blowing her hair as she lets her violin dangle in her makes my chest tight with a longing. Quite emotional!
