This work is inspired by "The Islander" from Nightwish's "Dark Passion Play"

I personally love everything about this scene, but most of all the colors and the grainy look. The noise supports the atmosphere of the scene a lot and matches the feeling of the song perfectly.

by the way: the "mistake" with the sails was done on purpose. :)

13 years later and Nightwish have a song named after you. You deserve it.

No, I was referring to the song "Shoemaker" off Nightwish's latest album "Hvman. :II: Natvre.", as it matches your username haha.

ohhh thanks for clarifying. Now that you mention it I actually noticed the title in my spotify playlist but haven't checked it out yet. Will have to do that soon for sure :D
