Won a Today’s Best Award on Zazzle (second page, bottom row)

Closeup of a picture I’m workng on – I liked this bit on its own, and I wanted to show a closeup on the details anyway.

Very Sandman and Neil Gaiman inspired (specifically, the Endless – Mostly Death, but also Dream, Destiny and Desire), but not actually OF them.

Some personal stuff in there – some emotional imagery, some pretty details that mean nothing.
The pain of caring and protecting something beautiful that feeds on you and hurts you. The paleness of being only a shadow compared to another’s light and glory. The power of darkness and being unknown, and the restraint possessed and never seen.

And I just had a completely different idea for the background…

Anyway, the full picture’s up to fours hours at the moment (and hasn’t been touched for awhile…), this bit… was maybe two hours.
