Dream of death by Ryonen Dream of death by Ryonen
Another fanart, inspiring by the fic in the same name. =D


Once, she died in a summer day.

Everyday, life gradually leaves her. Everyday, she knows she is getting closer and closer to death again. And that this time no sword can bring her back. An eternal death, an eternal leave, practiced repeatedly in every sleep.

She fears of the flowing time.
Very slow, yet cruel, the dreams keep on following, dissolving in each other. Life, death, life, death, to live, to die, live, die Sometimes she cannot realize whether it is dream or not.

More than ever, she knows that she is just a living-dead.

When she woke up, the first thing she saw is his eyes.

The eyes like two pieces of the golden moon, watched over her, guided her out of the dizzy fever of death.

Do not think, she smiled.

Her hands passed by the place where his heart continued its beat as subtle as the silent touch of the white butterfly to the immortality of time.

And when the waves of faint covered her with an opaque curtain, the last thing she wanted to see is two pieces of the moon.

Until the very end of her life, she still pines to search for those eyes. And she will believe

it is just a dream that when she wakes up, she will find herself in his arm, once again.

Rin belongs to Rumiko-sensei, yet the picture belongs to me ^ ^

I like how you did the hair, and her face is so peaceful. Where can one find the fanfic?

These are utterly lovely--both your artwork and the fanfic that inspired it. I've had this picture on my list of favorites for awhile, but I don't think I ever commented on it--my apologies!

I first saw this artwork several months ago on Moonlight-Flower. At that time, I hadn't read the fanfiction and I was struck by the picture's mysterious beauty: It raised so many intriguing questions. Was Rin sleeping or really dead? Why was she wrapped in Sesshoumaru's kimono? Now, even after reading the story, the picture has lost none of its beauty or potency.

Wonderful job! ^_^

It's very beautiful, and very sad. I like the sort of dream-like quality of the picture.
Ryonen Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2006
Thanks much for those words "dream-like quality" :)

The color and the hair pops. It drew my attention for a further look. I'm glad it caught my attention b/c I would have missed your artist's comment. The pic and the comment compliment one another. Everything is lovely.

Quite impressive,both the picture and the artist's comment,i like this theme,life and death,and this color theme really adds "dream" to "life and death",the white color made me think of something "pure" too.
The hair look very good,did that part took you much time?
Ah,i just wanna know what did you use to draw this one,is this one 100% digital art(100% done by using computer) or hand-drawing one?
Ryonen Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2006
Yay, thank for your detail-comment ^ ^. :heart: I like those two color red and black go together, they match quite well.
The white butterflies are from the idea of the fanfiction. Love the thought of Rin as a white butterfly. Beautiful, yet fragile and vanity. In fact, on the first version, i made the butterflies gather around in a circle, like white flowers. But while watching it, my friend said that the picture turned out to be so "noisy" '__'. It's not my purpose, so i decided to omit a bit.
The hair , yeap, i've learned to draw it. =D . That also is the part which took time the most in this picture. ( a few hours '__', slow, yet i think it's worthy, because after all i'm just learning to draw )

Of course not 100% using computer ( how can =D). Hand-drawing by pencil first, went through scanning, and then using Photoshop CS2.

Ah, btw, plz tell me how to add a person to my friend list. I don't know ... '___'
Ryonen Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2006
Ra l vậy, em cũng c xi Deviantwatch m đu c biết n l phần add friends. Lm cứ đi kiếm lung tung m chẳng thấy chỗ no n đề l add friends cả T___T
