'Darkened' by QuantumSuz 'Darkened' by QuantumSuz
The latest piece in the Gothic Fall series. It's a complete reworking of an older piece. If you are interested, the old version is here: [link]

I did the old version last year, I think the changes are quite noticeable for 1 year's practice! It's quite big so you can see the details. Painted from scratch in photoshop, I have no idea as to the timescale as I have fiddled about with it for a year on and off!

I shall write a poem to go with this one at some point, but I'm too busy at the moment!

No watermark or webaddress on the print either :)

Hope you guys enjoy!

Suz x

This is the definition of Gothic...its powerful...the expression in her eyes is hard to place, she definitely has an agenda...and the wings are a thing of dark beauty.

I absolutely adore the angle and detail used here. Interesting how her glowing cross matches the color of the stained glass window behind her :3
Those wings are spectacular :faint: Everything about this is beautiful!

A fall implies that there was onece a high point. The association of the Gothic Style with the dark and misty is attually a relization of the greatly aged. If anyone stopped for a moment to imagine the Gothic buildings as they were when freshly done in the Middle Ages, then you would see the opposite of the modern image: a bright, white, sparkling piece of heaven floating in the dark age, filled with youth and vitality, as well as divine glory. What has happened since is simply time: Centuries of soot from candels and ceromoinal fires on the inside, and crap from the industrial revolution out side, as well as fading and graying, rusting and rotting, and so on. There is beauty and Divine Glory still, but it is hard for some to see under the ravages of time.

Sorry for the late response; I am glad that you responded in this way; it gave me just a little extra that I needed to be confidant in faving the piece. I find a lot of Gothic pieces initially interesting but then run in to personal problems with some subtle message the artist may have, or I am underwhelmed at their ignorance of the symbolism they seemed to adore. I am very sensitive to symbolism; In this case, I think your meaning for the character has, for once, earned her the right to be called “Gothic”.

An interesting interpretation of the picture :) Though the 'darkened' actually refers to the personality of the character, as a loss of naivety. Although I do like the way that this reflects in the buildings changing over time; their original splendour changed to somewhat of a more dark beauty....
