This is something I started probably more than a year ago and never finished. It's one of my few old unfinished pieces that still tugs at my heart enough to finally finish it. It was inspired by the song Great Light of the World by Bebo Norman. What strikes me most and inspired this picture most was the first line,

Sometimes at night,
When I am afraid,
I cover my eyes,
To cover my shame.

That's what I was thinking when I did this picture. And I'm really thinking about going back to it.

Are you the original artist of these black-and-white drawings of Violet?  I’m asking because I see someone on here using these same artworks.

OH! Oh XD . Okay that's actually cool. I used to run that RP blog before the current player took over. I posted those there myself and never took them down before I left. Guess I should've left links XD . Thanks tho! I really appreciate it. I'm actually really glad to see the blog active again.

I'm here on behalf of :iconselftaughtartist: because your piece was in the group's critique requested folder.
Can I just say wow. Wow, wow, wow; I really love this. Even though it's unfinished the shading is just lovely, and her expression is perfect. If there was anything to fix on this piece I would say to make the highlights more dynamic. Once again lovely work, keep drawing. :D
