Falling into Darkness by enii Falling into Darkness by enii
she the dragonfly
once light and carefree.
darkness wraps around her now
like a glove fits one's hand.
light, begone; warmth, no more.
falling, falling
now it is dark.


For Jon. Thank you for the birthday present. Here's your gift in return. :hug:

3 hours. Photoshop CS2.

EDIT: Resubmitted. The cropping and direction of this piece has bothered me for sometime now, and since I had a bit of time, I decided to rework it a little bit. The result is this, which I feel is a considerable improvement. It's not entirely different; there are only minor changes, but I feel that its presentation is a little bit better this time around. I hope you agree :)

Amazing picture.
Great composition, love the atmosphere and the feeling of it.
Only thing thats disturbing me are the wings' borders and her left leg; they look kinda smudgy.

i love the colors... but the wings dont blend into her back very well.. >_>" i also like the black space... kinda. i'm not sure, something about the spacing bothers me. otherwise, its really nice.

Yeah they don't. I don't really know how to fix that. I think the space bothers you because there's so much of it. I considered expanding on the left side but I wasn't sure how I'd manage that without painting it and if I did, it still wouldn't really match the background that's currently behind her.
