QUOTH THE RAVEN by CelticBotan QUOTH THE RAVEN by CelticBotan
"I haunt your fears
Though you don't know of my duty to lead your path,
Because I'll take you home
To rest in my black wings, enfolding you...

(...)

(And death will smile his barefaced smile
Initiating your final anguish
It is not before my arrival that you will be lead to feel
The natural serenity of leaving this world...

Hear my wings caressing the wind!
Hear my... CRY!)'"

("QUOTH THE RAVEN", by Eluveitie)

Main reason why I don't make dark art: the same drama I apply on my happy / misterious / sad pieces, I would apply on dark pieces. long story short, it would be scary as fuck, and I don't really like scary stuff, LOL.

But anyway, I made an exception for this one, my rendition for Eluveitie's QUOTH THE RAVEN, amazing song. I used Anna Murphy's face as reference because I like her profile very much, she's very different. And she has this long, elegant nose so I thought she would fit the raven concept. :heart: I also wanted her to be the model because she has the most dramatic part of the song, the scream in the end. =D

Enjoy! :wave:

"Eu assombro seus medos,
Embora você não saiba do meu dever de conduzir o seu caminho,
Porque te levarei pra casa,
Repousando em minhas asas negras, envolvendo-o...

(...)

(E a morte sorrirá o seu sorriso descarado,
Iniciando sua angústia final
Não é antes de minha chegada
Que você será levado a sentir a natural serenidade que é deixar este mundo...

Ouça as minhas asas acariciando o vento!
Ouça o meu... GRITO!)"

("QUOTH THE RAVEN", by Eluveitie)

Principal motivo pelo qual eu não faço artes darks: o mesmo dramão que eu gosto de aplicar nos meus desenhos felizes / misteriosos / tristonhos, eu aplicaria nos darks. Resumindo, seria TEMÇO. E eu não sou chegada em coisas tensas assim :XD:

Mas enfim, abri uma exceção pra esse aqui, a minha versão artistica de QUOTH THE RAVEN do Eluveitie, musica sensacional. Usei o rosto da Anna Murphy como referência porque eu gosto do perfil dela, acho bem diferente, e porque ela tem o nariz bem longo e fino, que casaria bem com o conceito do corvo. :heart: Também escolhi ela porque é dela uma das partes mais dramáticas da música, aquele gritão no final! =D

Enjoy! :wave:

It's amazing overall, but that eye really blows my mind. So deep, realistic...entrancing, even.
