I Crave Silence by ShackledMuse I Crave Silence by ShackledMuse
So many thoughts sometimes, in my mind. It's never quite in there...
I just want silenceeeee

This might even be a little bit Poe inspired... I've read Siope (Silence) this week. 
"And mine eyes fell upon the countenance of the man, and his countenance was wan with terror. And, hurriedly, he raised his head from his hand, and stood forth upon the rock, and listened. But there was no voice throughout the vast illimitable desert, and the characters upon the rock were silence. And the man shuddered, and turned his face away, and fled afar off, and I beheld him no more." 

Cling And Clatter - Lifehouse
Too many voices it won't take long
which one's right and which one's wrong
and yours is most likely to be misunderstood
screaming in tongues
at the top of my lungs
'til I find you 'til you found me
somehow I always knew that you would

and I am contemplating matters
all this cling and clatter
in my head and what you said
is ringing, ringing faster

and it's all good if you would
stop the world from making sense
and if I could just realize
it doesn't really matter
doesn't really matter
doesn't really matter

if I could touch
the sound of silence now
you know I would if I knew how
to make these intentions
come around

and I'm hearing without listening
and believing every word that
you're not saying
speaking without a sound

and I am contemplating matters
all this cling and clatter
in my head and what you said
is ringing, ringing faster

and it's all good if you would
stop the world from making sense
and if I could just realize
it doesn't really matter
doesn't really matter
doesn't really matter

trapped inside
of these four walls
walking brainless muppet dolls
mushroom face
beneath the tangles
bleeding silhouette inside
dancing like an angel would

and it's all good if you would
stop the world from making sense
and if I could just realize
it doesn't really matter
doesn't really matter
doesn't really matter

and it's all good if you would
stop the world from making sense
and if I could just realize
it doesn't really matter
doesn't really matter
all this cling and clatter

I have to say, this is superb! And the way her dress is vanishing, it's like that poor girl is fading away... All of the colors used almosts brings out a melancholic feeling.

This is a lovely piece. I love how it just looks like water breaking up. The whole picture seems to flow, it's very... fluid. I also love your description on the piece it gives it more meaning and more to think about. Beautiful work.

Lovely, mild, and elegant! I love about the whole paint dress and all, you did a really great job on that! The model choosing is also good, the black hair just makes it more alive and not pale. I think you could do better on the hair, it's not that fluid with the rest of the hair. Maybe if you delete the first bunch on the hair (top left) it'll be better Grump

Thank you! I agree, the model was perfect for this piece. So glad I found that stock. 
Hmmm, I see what you mean with the hair. Thanks for the advice! I'll go play around with it some more :nod:

Such beauty and turmoil.   I love the mood in this, the greys and white punctuated by the black hair.  It really draws the eye to the action.   If there was a next "frame" to this as a sequence I feel like it might just be a smear of color on the water where she once stood.  Love it!

I love the way her dress looks like it's disintegrating :o very nice... the only thing is that I think something looks a little strange with the hair. I think maybe the dots are a little too big for the strands of hair? Anyway, I think this is a nice piece overall :)

mmm, maybe I must make the dark dots a little bit smaller? Thanks for the feedback! :hug:
