[PRIZE] - Shadowlight by Gewalgon [PRIZE] - Shadowlight by Gewalgon
"From the light I came,
with flower's mystery flame,

my heart is shining bright,
my soul is darker as the night,

with glowing dangerous eyes,
the power of my light flies.

I am walking trough the moonlit night,
All shadows become still quite."




This is the Contest-Prize for *HeatherSchoff for the first place she got in my "Black and White - Infinity Love - Contest".
She wanted me to draw her cat-character "Shadowlight" you can find in this Journal: uiizaelic.deviantart.com/art/S…
It was a lot of fun for me to draw her!^^
I hope you like it! :la:

This aamzing piece of artwork is absolutely fantastic, your best so far, for many reasons,
primarily the effect of the tail is brilliant, the long weep and soft texture denotes a n aggressive prescene and give off a more gentle, calming notion to the creature.

secondly is the trees, the way they gently catch the light and are full of softlooking leaves shows the gentleness even more

and finally the creature herself, at least i hope its a she and not a very effeminate male, the long sweeping eyelashes give a very effeminate mothering appearance that I love. all inall this is a beautiful piece andI am sooooooooooooo in love with it.

First and foremost: I LOVE HER!!!! :hug:

You did an amazing job on her shadowy appearance with how she prowls forward, seemingly dangerous and curious. Yet on second look her ghostly and kind ways show through as her tail blossoms into feathers and flowers giving her a more calming appearance in her personality.

I love the way the moon shines down on her as well, revealing how she reflects like the moon with her curious power. I also love the fire-fly wisp all about too! Very enchanting indeed! :la:

__

Shadowlight is the light within the shadow- the lantern of the path; so tender hearted, yet unseen by most. Her purpose is to be there when needed, even when unseen, and to bring a smile to those in despair. She changes forms to fit what is needed. She is the cat form of the shadow phoenix of life. A form of a self persona if you will have it. :D

The phoenix bit comes from a near death experience I had as a child. After that time I had many reoccuring dreams. Shadowlight changes forms and what her final form is I cannot tell.

Beautiful interpretation! I love her! Thank you so much for drawing her for me!

It's beautiful and different, Gewalgon, though full of the life of the night, and I love how you manage to come up with the right words to accent the piece for the reader. Extremely well done, and I love the purple! Well done! :love:

Wow, wie ausdrucksstark. Katzenhafte Geschmeidigkeit, die gefährliche - für Katzen so typische - Anschleich- oder Angreifpose gepaart mit den so unheimlich leuchtenden Augen.

 

Und doch stellt dieser federige, mit funkelnden Sternen bedeckte Schweif das genaue Gegenteil dar. Ein wunderschönes Nachtwesen. Ein Wesen voller Widersprüche ...

Das stimmt, umso mehr finde ich dass der Name "Shadowlight" passt, weil es diese Widersprüche, bzw. Gegensätzlichkeiten auch in dem Namen vereint sind.
Jedenfalls herzlichen Dank für deinen Kommentar, habe mich mal wieder sehr darüber gefreut! :hug:
