from dusk until dawn by len-yan from dusk until dawn by len-yan
yesterday i found a photo of an exam piece i drew in korea. it featured two ghost children on an empty road. i never finished the original piece;;
i decided to repaint it, changing the concept and colours a little bit.

the children (they're twins, btw) are named Świt (the girl; name means 'dawn' in polish ) and Zmierzch (the boy; name means 'dusk' ). there might be a story to go with them, there might be not^^


this picture is wallpaper sized, download to get 1024x768 version of it. personal use only, please!

(will be moved to wallpaper - manga when the category starts working...;; )

I love the way the ghost children look rather surprised to find you watching. Lovely background, it sent several chills down my spine.

This reminds me so much of a couple of original characters of mine. The boy, Eloi, and his sister, Amara, where abused by their father. Eloi was possessed by a demon and killed both his twin sister and his father. Sad story. They looked very much like those two. <3 I love your work, its amazing!

Interesting concept. I wish they were more ghost-like first glance I just thought they were wandering "live" children. :)

I like this picture's eeriness it has about it. The boy and girl do remind me of hansel and gretel btw. I also like your way of drawing.

It would be a better background without the anime figures.
nephely Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Podoba mi się światło jakie zdaje się emanować od dzieci wśród tej mgły, i cały ten mroczny klimat:) Woda i róże też świetnie wyglądają. Sposób, w jaki ta dziewczynka patrzy w stronę 'odbiorcy' dodaje uroku pracy. Piękne:)

It's a beautiful picture. I like the girl best. And the trees. And their black (or lack there of) eyes.
shylittleunicorn Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2009
This is so spooky, at first I thought that the two kids found an extra boot laying there on the road and were investigating it before I saw that the boy was missing his... heheeh - in my mind I turned it into a murder scene right away...^^; I love the puddles and smudged background.
Cla-r Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2009
Uwielbiam takie mhroczne klimaty^^. Bardzo fajna pracka^^.

To chyba jeden z niewielu rysunkow, na ktorym umiescilas takie rozbudowane tlo! Fajna praca wyszla, taka mroczna. Wrzucilam ja na pulpit do siebie i ladnie sie prezentuje. Gratuluje okladki w Arigato! Przeczytalam w ktoryms z komentarzy, ze twoja praca zostala zamieszczona w tym czasopismie i przy okazji spaceru po miescie zajrzalam do Komiksolandii i obejrzalam ten numer. Szkoda, ze nie mogli ci dac wiecej stron... ale dobre i to! Zycze dalszych sukcesow, moze kiedys wydadza specjalny numer z pracami len-yan? ;-) Pozdrawiam!

Ahh... This drawing reminds me of a Ghost story I once read about a pair of siblings who killed their parents to obtain a drum from a gypsy girl. The colors may be simple, but they are very deep and soft. I love it!

Cute! Very envious of your ability to do landscapes :]
I love it.

this one is realy great, somewhat nostalgic, somewhat sad, a little bit creepy and still lovely, great artwork, honestly.
