Shadows of the Veil of Secrets by Iardacil Shadows of the Veil of Secrets by Iardacil
This is for for catching my 9000th pageview. He wanted something dark.. I hope this is dark enough.. :DThanks, friend :hug:

I can feel you how you call me,
but still I cannot come
In the shadows of the veil of secrets
we must live....
Although I can feel, that our paths
never cross again, still:
darkness merge us one
after all...

Tunnen kuidas mind sa kutsud,
aga tulla veel ei saa.
Saladuseloori varjus
peame elama.
Kuigi tundub, et me rajad
eal ei ristugi, on nii:
pimedus meid ühte liidab
lõpuks ikkagi.

Romeo ja Julia - Hele Kõre and Kristjan Kasearu

First part of those lyrics are my free translation of song in estonia.. and tha other part.. is original lyrics in estonia.. So, my estonian friends have the privilege to understand the whole meaning and power behind that song

But you all can listen it here: [link] The page is on english, you just have to chose the speed of the connection and wait little bit.. Please.. it is worth it.. the meldoy... the emotion behind that song.. you don't have to understand the lyrics.. the meldoy.. how it all sounds together...

First, if Romeo and Julia first met, they fell in love in first moment but there was no change for them to be together. This is the grief of knowing that you have met the right person but you will have never the change.. How often we all feel it? The sadness of knowing that world is against you... the grief for the world that they are blind, live in revenge and hate. In their world there is no room for love what can cross that boarder.. But Romeo and Julia know this... but no hope for them... only pain, suffer and sadness... And the lyrics express that really well - they feel the call of each other but they cannot come.. they most live in shadows, keep those things in secret..

Second, and maybe even more inspiring was the grief after Romeo has killed himself and Julia awakes.. he has gone and he will never return. And she knows so well that they will be always together. His spirit calls her to come along... to follow him to the realm of death.. and she knows she will come but this just sounds so wrong.. but yes... darkness will merge them into one and she will follow her lover's fate...

Why that kind of background? The storm.. in both of those cases, the characters are in storm.. in their soul.. they have to make decisions.. and they cannot be correct.. but what will be stronger? The call of the heart of radical thinking of the brain...

And the title came too long, again.. I planned to give the name: "Living in The Shadows of the Veil of Secrets" Will work like this too

Yesterday after I saw my friends :devfrozenrostar: stock account and those fantastic backgrounds I just wanted to make something.. So I started... the result was little different and I didn't used her background but I will, I promise.. in some new manip I will make.. her stock is just fantastic.. Go and check ~ro-stock

So.. I decided something less complicate than usual.. Not 100 layers as lately.. :S I ended up only in 40.. :D And I used that same texture I used in "Queen for a Day" and I love it.. It makes background look just fantastic.. :D and in matter of fact.. it is sand originally...

This is stunning work and fully captures pains of the heart not only in Romeo and Juliet, but other tragic love stories as well. Bravi :)

Oh my, I could say a thousand words at the very least for this piece.

The posing, is impressive to say the least a almost form of sacred geometry is playing out with the arms and dress.

The expression, grand. The very piece it's self, pulls your sight to look behind and around the piece. Giving an intense sense of direction to the overall emotion.

The lighting, is the only thing I somewhat do not like. It seems the "background" is completely regardless in lighting compared to the foreground. Like the clouds are a separate layer, that is completely not related to anything else. This problem is "almost" alleviated when you put those hills in the center right of the piece, with the shading that reacted to the beams of light.
Though perhaps that was part of the effect you were going for?

The poetry, has odd offset timing, but to one who knows "how" to read poetry it does well. The common person may trip up when reading this just normally.

Though It has one part that I believe could use a change in pace.
Original

"In the shadows of the veil of secrets
we must live....
Although I can feel, that our paths
never cross again, still:"

Changed
"In the shadows of the veil of secrets,
we must live...
Although I can feel that our paths
Never cross again, still"

Repeating of small words and connective phrases, also should be avoided.
However, you did well in conveying the idea.

Oh curse me for reading in order. I just realized after reading on, that it is a song.

Moving on the symbolism of this piece is also strong. The storms representing a conflict. The expression a submissive resolve. The choice of dress, and color is of the very blackness that is sure to consume the situation. The odd blue tint suggesting, that there is a progression to this resolve given willingly, but in despair. Mind you, before reading the paragraphs of explanation this is what I found in the piece.

After reading your paragraph, my understanding of the piece did not change tooo much. It only added the detail that this piece is about "love", and longing. The overall chaos of the piece is unveiled by the situation given in the description. Yet the tone, mood, and overall representation remains unchanged.
