A storm is loosed upon the sea,
Whose eye is stained with tears.
A wretch Hell-bound and bent on blood,
The makings of the fearful's fears.

The tide it stole away her grace,
The depths, they wouldn't claim her.
A toil begat by father's blood
This path was laid before her.

Redemption born by brigand's blood,
A blight upon the darkness.
The pact embraced, a road unsought
The Maiden of Death won't be unwrought.

Her wrath is known throughout the black,
The gardens of death she's tending
Vengeance is her only ward
Beware the blood red roses' thorn.

("Blood Red Roses" by 
C21fx)… )

This was created for DAZaholics' Bloody Red Rose competition.

Use 'em up, spit 'em out...

So, yeah, this is kind of dark, no?

Do you mean visually or conceptually? ^_^

Well, both I guess? The lyrics set a tone for the image which is ... fairly dark, it seems to me. You might argue it ends up well enough as she at least has agency, but a pirate's actual life wasn't really much fun I believe. But I'd like to see more of her specifically :)

Very true. In reality piracy was not a particularly good (or long) life.

I may have to do a different render at some point to give a better look at her.
