Some Days are Longer

By kchilt
1K Favourites
10,000 miles to paradise. Some days are longer than others, some days fade to quick. It's a far climb on certain days and a short walk on others. This day is one promised with warning. Whatever the day, the crows will always come out.

A representation of how time slips by and how death is a presence in everyday life. Though it didn't start out as that; I just drew a long hill surrounded by clouds, then it spawned from there.

:pointr: Edit: 7/13/05
:bulletgreen: Higher resolution.
:bulletblue: Added a shadow behind the figure.
:bulletpurple: Raised the opacity of the floating clouds in the sky.
:bulletred: Colorized the clouds a bit more.

Enjoy and Fullview.

This is kinda like what I'm feeling right now. Running, either away from something or nothing, or just completely wasting my time. I really love the designs on those clouds. Asie from the long and winding road (which didn't appear obvious to me at the start until I looked at it closely), I think the feathers and the birds are also my favorites. I didn't read the description until after I thought of the idea of black birds depicting death or just the gloomy days in life. Really neat concept. Well done.

The road seems to travel on forever, but the boy is determined to get to the end. Beautiful clouds by the way, and I like the fact that the stars, moon, and sun are all suspended from string.

I love the concept, and the colors are very soft and gives sort of a surreal feeling. Much love ^^

I really can't take my eyes off of this, the colours are so stunningly beautiful and I love how you composed it, especially with the metaphors all integrated into it. It's one of those rare pieces that I find heartstirring and it's wonderful that you've shared it. Thank you!

It doesn't surprise me that this got a DD, the atmosphere almost defines fantasy. The details are fantastic, the movement through time and space... and I consistantly love your color palettes. They work so well with the feeling ^_^
I almost wish I could be up there following...
It does, however, surprise me that this piece only got 172 comments, and yet over 900 favorites... it deserves way more. Although I doubt another favorite in addition to this comment would be a bad thing ;-)
