YOUR VOICE IS SOFT AS THUNDER by falitna YOUR VOICE IS SOFT AS THUNDER by falitna

PERSONAL: YOUR VOICE IS SOFT AS THUNDER

Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung, no wine untasted

But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they turn your hope apart
As they turn your dreams to shame

And still I dream he'd come to me
That we would live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather

I had a dream my life would be
So different from the hell I'm living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed
...



A bit of a warmup for upcoming commissions that I need to finish. I was going to add ghostly lions prancing about this lovely nighttime scene, but..in the end this piece is still unfortunately unoriginal. If you cannot tell, the white powdery speckles are snow. ♥

Honestly, I love every single piece that you upload. All of them are charged with so much emotion, and everything about them is gorgeous. This is so amazing, and while at first glance it may look simple, there's so much time and detail put into it that makes it stunning. :faint:

This is quite pretty ♥

The only thing I wonder about, is that the snow seems to fall straight down but there's a lot of wind blowing the mane and tail? I love the hair though.

Don't worry, I think we all miss mistakes in our own art that, had someone else made the same error, we would have picked up on immediately.
