Queen of the Night by Iardacil Queen of the Night by Iardacil
This is for I have wished to do something her for a long time and as she caught my 5000th pageview.. This it is.. for you, my friend... I was planning to use your seasalt and stars.. but came out.. the crown :) But I love that seasalt and I will use it.. somewhere.. it is so.. fairylike :D

Queen of the Night.. the little girl who is too proud, too... snappish. She has lived her in life in dark and never seen more than the moonlight.. And in that kind of darkness, there has been no love and no care for her - only duties, only mentor who remind her who she is - the heir of the underworld, heir on night and dark, pain and suffer. She must follow the path what is meant for her. She has never seen anything beautiful, anything to keep or hold. Destruction and killing - that is thought for her. No mercy for others, they say her and she has nothing else to do than believe.. Believe the whispers in the night, follow guidance of shadows and follow her dark path given her by destiny.. But in her grief and sour heart... there is still curiosity.. and she.. in one night she found something new.. something she had never seen - a butterfly.. she followed the magical creature and something changed inside her... she cried her first tear - for the beauty of that butterfly.. but the look in her eyes.. it betrays that even if she wish - she cannot turn aside her fate... evilness in deep inside her, part of her.. in her veins, in heir mind.. her heart beats in the rhythm of that hatred. No escape for her....

Took ages.. Really.. Usually I do manipulation in 5 hours.. and some had said to me.. it takes so long.. this.. wow.. it was almost like 10-12 hours.. I had to repaint so much as I loved the pose but the stock images was not very well quality.. And the hand with that ball.. I just painted it all.. And the hair was really headache.. And those ribbons.. and.. so, so much more.. the time, when I finished.. was much, much later than I had hoped.. it wasn't not morning yet but... not the time I am used to go bed.. I am not happy with some things.. and as my sister said - I should stay with manipulations not painting.. But the amount of work here.. I just couldn't let it be unsubmitted.. Hope you like it... Thanks... (pass away :P too sleepy, yet..)
