Midnight Sacrament by SilEnigmaArts Midnight Sacrament by SilEnigmaArts
~...They come at midnight on the fourth full moon of each year...a ritual to the ancients, as old as time, to worship the Deity of the Dark Lord as he returns to the monastery to accept the allegiance of his followers...~



This piece is dedicated to :icon4420: for so kindly allowing me use of this NON STOCK photograph [link] for this piece. To encourage him that he too can do this :) Thank you Matt :hug:



EDIT : I have submitted this piece in the Stormy Weather Contest [link]



Stocks:


:iconpeace-of-art: Monk
:iconunholy-stock: Bats
:icondbszabo1: Trees


Sky from ASW [link] who so kindly allow me use of their photographs in my manipulations.


The rain and everything else was made by me in PSP.


I hope you all like "Midnight Sacrament"

You have done a great job in the selection of this. That is also a big choice for artists - so much stock to choose from. The artists eye is very important in the selection process as well as the creative bit.

Smiles....thanks again Andy, youre right...a quazillion stocks to choose from one would think it would be easy but more and more i find myself NOT being inspired by the stocks. Im always looking for that "extra special" shot.
