The Tower of Learning by Selfish-Eden The Tower of Learning by Selfish-Eden
Just a little something I made while I was bedridden with food poisoning. I was listening to the song, stumbled across these stocks, and it all came together.

Rufus Wainwright, The Tower of Learning

I'm looking for the tower of learning
I'm looking for the copious prize
I saw it in your eyes what I'm looking for
I saw it in your eyes what I'm looking for

I really do fear that I'm dying
I really do fear that I'm dead
I saw it in your eyes what I'm looking for
I saw it in your eyes what will make me live

All the sights of Paris
Pale inside your iris
Tip the Eiffel Tower with one glance
Stained glass cathedrals with one glint

You smashed it with your eyes
What I'm looking for
One blink and then my heart wasn't there no more

I'm looking for the tower of learning
I'm looking for the copious prize

This is really beautiful and you did an excellent job of capturing the mood of the lyrics with the image! I must know, did you use a hair brush for this and is it for PSP? I'm always on the look out for better hair brushes! Sorry to hear about the food poisoning! Got that from a bad set of sushi once, it suuuuuuucks! Hope you're feeling better!

Thank you so much! :hug:

Yup, I used hair brushes this time rather than painting the hair. The hair brushes came from ~PrettyBrush, and I don't think she has PSP brushes. :no:

I'm feeling much better today, thanks!

Darn! *AzurylipfesStock is the only place I can ever find good PSP brushes! So hard to come by, I'm going to have to learn how to make my own!

Glad to hear you're feeling better!

That sucks! I know some people offer image packs, but I have a feeling they're not the same.

Like I said, once all the sorowful maidens are in the forest now, the beaches are ours. Great idea of books swimming in the fog... reminds me of what's going on in my head now. :lol:

Food poisoning is the most horrifying thing. I'm actually ready to deal with any kind of illness except barftastic pleasures of communication with the toilet. I'm so paranoid that I'm suspicious about any food that I didn't cook myself. You got my sympaties. Must be evil mushrooms. :hug:

:rofl: I've definitely been having barftastic pleasures of communication with the toilet. Sadly, they're not very pleasurable.

Wow, awesome piece you have there. A wonderful combination and great use of colour. I love the impeding clouds and the several books that lay scattered across the rocks. Great work :)

Beautiful and wondeful and stunning! The atmosphere is great, and you really combined the stock well. My favorite part I think is the checkered "floor" under the mist. It was a neat little detail for you to add.
