His Nightmare by TellerofTales His Nightmare by TellerofTales
Too many sounds! They had to stop! He couldn’t concentrate. He couldn’t think. They were telling him something. His brain somehow was slow to comprehend the words they spoke. They screamed making his head pound. He didn’t understand even when the words reached him. He was moving through the parting crowd toward something. He suddenly stopped and looked at what they all gathered around. Surrounded by beautiful white flowers was something draped in… He stared realizing what it was. It was a person draped in a burial cloth their face covered. He inched forward slowly touching the cloth. He grabbed the end and carefully began to pull it slowly, so slowly. Suddenly, his hand froze as the light of the many candles, the people held, landed on shiny copper colored hair. He went rigid. His heart may have stopped. He thought he couldn’t breath. He thought he was fading away. He thought someone had cut out his heart and thrown it in a fire to burn to ash as the word spoken at last pounded in his ears. “Dead, dead, DEAD!”

--

A scene from one of my stories. It's from a nightmare one of my characters keeps having where he sees someone he really cares about dead. At Last it's finished! I took more time coloring this than I have any picture and I'm quite proud of it. Yay! :boogie:

Love the descrip, I must see some of your writings! *nod*
I agree, like the way you have her hair spread out around her, and the candle flames are awesome as well! I think they really add to the feel of this piece. And the wood is fantastic, great job on the texture. =D
Suggestion, hope you don't mind: it would be good if your shading was a little darker, it's not quite enough of a contrast.

Of course I don't mind I can always use help. I'm not sure if I'll get around to fixing this anytime soon, but maybe I'll have a look at it one of these days and fix the shading.
I have some of my stories in my gallery, but not the story that goes with this illustration yet. I'll probably be adding more soon if you want to have a look.

Thanks for wonderful comment! :hug:

Very nice drawing! I love it!

One of my characters also has dreams like this about someone she cares deeply about... interesting coincidence! Hmm?

It's drawn good, and I like that. Well, maybe not the best, but it's still nice :)

BTW, I got a friend here, ~Silly-Sil. She's a photoshop painter too, so just thought you might be interested.

lol, no, definately not the best, my best maybe, but I could show you a thousand artists loads better than me. I worked hard on it though and didn't rush to get it finished like I normally do which is why I'm so proud of it. Thanks for the comment and your friend's art is terrific by the way.

Very nice, the flowers are amazing must have taken you a long time to do them all. You have captured the peaceful expression on her face well. Lovely work.

The flowers took a long time as well as the grass. I had put some different colors on the flowers but the color was sort of lost when I began shading the rest of the picture to make it look more dream-like.

Thanks. I am pretty happy with this one. I can honestly say I spent a lot of time on it and didn't rush through it like I usually tend to do.
