In the dead of night she came to him with darkness in her eyes
Wearing a mourning gown, sweet words as her disguise
He took her in without a word for he saw his grave mistake
And vowed them both to silence deep beneath the lake

Tell me, do you think you could do a piece of art which matches the final lyrics?

To tell the truth, I can hardly imagine it in my head :(

In my opinion, I sort of see Cauldron Lake with the ripples in the lake faintly shaping Jagger's face and faint lights in the lake.  Then again, it's just my opinion.  Do what you wish.

The idea is wonderful but seems kinda difficult for me 'cos I'm not good in drawing landscapes :(

That's alright.  If you can't do it, I won't force you.  I'm just saying it would be a good idea if possible.

Yep, you're right, that's a great idea. Maybe playing AW again could give me some inspiration but I am all into Dragon Age =D

Request: Jagger wandering the woods at night.

It'd be too scary since she became the heart of the night of these woods :paranoid:

The game is not so long, neither short... but its so awesome, I used to hate Barbara... but then I realized that all this time that woman wasnt Barbara. but the Dark Presence in disguise... wish to see Alan Wake 2 soon, so I can finally destroy that annoying mist of darkness >: D (if all ends in Alan Wake 2....) GREAT PIC! ALL HAIL ALAN WAKE!

Yes, poor girl has drowned in the Cauldron lake, she's not the one to blame for anything. And I'm afraid there'll always be the Dark Presence. There can't be any light without darkness, that's true :) Can't wait to see the 2nd game as well.
Thank you!
