And the light of a fading star
Is what you were, is what you are
Like the glow that christens the moon
You shone too soon, you shone too soon
~Flogging Molly, Light of a Fading Star
First off, I totally love that song. Second, I don't want to tell you how long this took. ;_; I dont want to KNOW how long this took.
This was originally gonna be a picture from Gilgamesh, which we are reading in one of my classes, of Enkidu. However, I listened to "His Majesty's Dragon" while I drew... so it kinda became a mesh of the two... kinda... There is no real essence of Gilgamesh in this... but anyway.
I always forget all the things I intend to put here...
Oh yeah! This is the reason I postponed my study of Edward Gorey's pen and ink style, but that is next. Everytime I put this picture aside my muse started making a fuss; yelling and pulling my hair and giving me writers block on essays... And Henry wasn't helping either; kept staring at me in that way and giving heavy sighs. Sheesh. You'll meet henry soon if you haven't already...
I used NO STOCK in this. Oh yeah. >.< I was tempted to though...
