Bless the Child.

I stumbled upon a gem of an unfinished digital painting in my old sd card yesterday. I had to put it on hold when JC wasted my time with project work and art class assignments which I didn't really bother with. Worked on it for 2 hours yesterday and here it is completed after half a year.
My main inspiration for this piece comes from Nightwish's album; Century Child. I know my taste for music is a little quirky, but Nightwish is just fucking awesome. Surely Gothic Metal Operatics aren't for everyone but the poetry by Tuomas is simply magical and Tarja gives life to each and every line of his lyrics.
"Dead to the world. Alive for the journey.The clock is ticking... Better get back to business...
One night I dreamt a white rose withering,
a newborn drowning a lifetime loneliness."
