Anima and Summer's End by SirKiljaos Anima and Summer's End by SirKiljaos
In the morning mist by the waning moon
through the woods she set on foot
With a sacred blade cut the berries down
Dug up the dreaded mandrake root

Tread my path to summer's end
This bequest I leave you she says
You will see what could be evergreen
Turn to copper and fade to gray

By the standing stones
Atropine eyes smiled at me
Sitting in a sluggish vertigo
Sands of time form another dream
No love without sacrifice
No lige springs without decay
The final kiss is a wormy one
In soils cold caress to rest we'll lay

Tread my path to summer's end
This bequest I leave you she says
You will see what could be evergreen
Turn to copper and fade to gray

(Amorphis - Summer's End www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aXDr3…)

-----------------------

So the summer has ended once again and autumn is here. Princess Anima is walking in the woods on a windy autumn morning, witnessing all the changes and beautiness that autumn brings.

So since it's autumn now in real life as well, as I'm posting this new drawing, it was appropiate to make a drawing about this and since I got a lot of influence for such picture from the song "Summer's End" by finnish metal band Amorphis, from their album Tuonela from 1999.

And it also had been awhile since I had drawn Anima so it was a good opportunity to draw her once again.

This came out really well! I love the sense of windy motion created by her billowing hair, clothing, and the leaves. The coloration looks nice, too, bright in the right places while still being subdued enough to pull off a great morning look.

Wow this scene you have created is wonderful, the overall balance of bright colors is amazing. The folds in the cloak and dress seem realistic and portray the wind blowing them around. Great job!

Wow this looks... Phenomenal... It's so amazing I can't even think of more words to describe it, and I don't want to go sifting through my thesaurus for them... XD

Well done, absolutely well done!
