Death of a Sun God by Technoelfie Death of a Sun God by Technoelfie
Every day at dusk he dies, his flame slowly extinguished as he sinks into the depths of the sea. There his tomb awaits, and the sea nymph he loves. And so he clings to the last shreds of consciousness, struggling to catch a last glimpse of her before darkness claims him for yet another night.

Damn! pardon my saying...but your drawing is superb and I love the little tidbit on your artist's comments. I don't know why, but your words touch me greatly. You express your painting to perfection. All I desire is to see more of you work. Keep it up!!And maybe a beautiful sea nymp whose waiting for her in the small rock as a sun us setting? :)

i like how he seems to be breaking up - as if the light is dispersing, shattering as her plunges deeper into the darkness. really amazing effect!! and how can i not say something about his face? it glows, and it is really beautiful <3

Though I am sure you get more than enough comments, I really love this one, he's beautiful, well composed, the contrast in shades and tones are well placed. In my opinion this is a work that is simple, and yet so emotional. It's truly a beautiful work of art.
