Homecalling II by balorkin Homecalling II by balorkin
Give me a reason to believe that you're gone
I see your shadow so I know they're all wrong
Moonlight on the soft brown earth
It leads me to where you lay
They took you away from me but now I'm taking you home

I will stay forever here with you, my love
The softly spoken words you gave me
Even in death our love goes on

Some say I'm crazy for my love, oh my love
But no bonds can hold me from your side, oh my love
They don't know you can't leave me
They don't hear you singing to me

I will stay forever here with you, my love
The softly spoken words you gave me
Even in death our love goes on

And I can't love you, anymore than I do

- Evanescence, Even in Death

Collab with the amazing, awesome and very talented :iconserena-jevel:! Part two. Coloration by her, lines by me. Second part: [link] (the picture has two parts, so be sure you don't miss the other one. ;)

EDIT: Okay. my first DD. o_O) I am around Deviantart for about... six years now and NEVER got a DD. Like probably every deviant, I somehow wished to get a DD, but now I feel kinda sad because this is not entirely my work. Unfortunately I missed the fact that I got a Dd for a couple of days, so now the hype is probably over and no-one will read this anymore, but... IF you still read through this... make sure you visit :iconserena-jevel:s gallery, too. Because... she did the coloring job on this one. And so she had a hell lot of work with this, far more than I got and she should also be praised for it, even if I had the idea for this picture.
Thanks

Yeah the coloring is amazing indeed. Generally, this picture is like an epitome of abstract. What were you trying to say? Tell me the story behind this. DO you know that anime "Fantastic Children"? This pic kind of reminds me of them - beings in the world of humans, looking for something they lost here, and just waiting for that moment to be able to leave. This pic is very nostalgic at the same time. I'd like to know more :)

The picture shows a creature I fancy to be a kind of death 'god'. A spirit who collects the souls of the dead and guides them to the netherworld. I have choosen a prey, not a predatory species for a reason. I thought while predators bring death to their prey, the prey is so much more accustomed to death and can approach the souls in a less cruel way. It isn't about killing, but guarding and guiding the soul.
The creature is 'blind' and nearly naked, just draped in cloth. This means it isn't his to judge the soul.
The counter piece to this one shows a dying creature, also a prey species. She's mourning the loss she's going to feel, but her soul will be guarded well and it will also be a new beginning.

probably, but I think he's more like a death spirit. I liked the concept of a herbivore for the job. It's unusual. ^^
