I dream of life by katiecatapillar I dream of life by katiecatapillar
Death has never felt closer. Close enough to touch. But even in the midst of death one cannot help but question what it feels like to be alive? All that these eyes see are shadows of past lives that have now been lost. At yet she wanders alone, alive among the dead.

Probably one of my most detailed and emotional artworks. This took me a while working on/off for a week. I kept showing previews to my friends at UB and asked them to tell me what emotions they thought the artwork portrayed. Lonliness, purity, afraid etc were some that they came up with which was all that I wanted to convey, so what do you think? What do you feel what you look at the artwork?

I absolutely love this piece.
But, before I ran off doing something, would you hate me if I politely asked if I could make a character sort of like this one?
I absolutely love the design, and was thinking about making a character who looked like her with a petite form who is sort of racist, has a fiery temper when made fun of her height, and when people meet her she acts all sweet and over dramatic.
Is it fine? I don't want you angry at me if I do.

Thank you! I named her Iosui and gave a pair of red young Antelope horns to make her into an Unicorn. She's being played over at Helovia. helovia.net/index.php
Also, if it's too much to ask, could I use the image as her reference up till I get some art made of her? I completely understand if you say no, seeing as you let already said I could use her design. <3

Alright. Thank you so much. You're so kind for this. <3
And there will be a link straight to your dA on my profile, and if used as a table, a link will be the first thing to appear going straight to the image to make sure credit is given.
Again, thank you so much. <3

Youre welcome ^^
I would prefer if tables weren't made out of the image though just because it was an artwork of my
own character and she already has some tables but I don't mind you linking to the image here on da of course!

Woah, it looks epic. It is kind of sad, the scheme and all, but also a drop of evil there. Red eyes, what can you do, lol.
