Sometimes... just... nevermind
I hope the picture tells most of the story
Was a rather quick one, but sometimes an idea is just as fast so you just need to try and capture it. And I hope I managed to do so and carry it over to you.
It was nice making snow for once, but I guess that's just part of exploring new things
Approx time: 1,7 hour
Edit: Wow, all the beautiful comments, it's heart warming You all make the best stories, All the feels, Thank you!
I'm sorry for my lack of replies, I'm at a loss of words for the beauty of all the comments.
Seeing how much snow has already covered her, she's obviously been in that position for a good while. And if she isn't dead from severe hypothermia already, she soon will be. Even if the figure in the background (presumably RD) reached Gilda while she was still alive, she'd still have to drag her out of the blizzard. She never had a chance, the poor girl.
This is a sad scenario indeed, and masterfully executed I might add. I love the way Gilda's talons are protruding from the snow, and her frozen tears make it that much more of an emotional piece. Well done!
But what really interests me is the figure in the distance. If I were allowed to speculate I'd say it was Dash. But you can't tell if she's walking away, or running over to help, or even just standing and watching.
I do like the idea of this being a bit more metaphorical than that, 'left out in the cold' and all that.
Gilda mourns Dash's "betrayal", and feels like she's alone out in the cold, with no friends left to help/comfort her. And in the background, one can see Dash, who has abandoned Gilda and is simply watching her suffer.
That's how I interpreted it, anyways. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Really cool picture.
