Bittersweet by blue-but-beautiful Bittersweet by blue-but-beautiful
-Bittersweet-

If I tell you
Will you listen?
Will you stay?
Will you be here forever?
Never go away?

Never thought things would change
Hold me tight
Please don't say again
That you have to go

A bitter thought
I had it all
But I just let it go
Hold your silence
It's so violent
Since your gone

All my thoughts are with you forever
Until the day we'll be back together
I will be waiting for you

If I had told you
You would have listened
You had stayed
You would be here forever
Never went away
It would never have been the same
All our time
Would have been in vain
Cause you had to go

The sweetest thought
I had it all
Cause I did let you go
All our moments
Keep me warm
When you're gone

All my thoughts are with you forever
Until the day we'll be back together
I will be waiting for you.

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

Some original art inspired by the above lyrics.
Lyrics (c) Within Temptation.

Thanks very much, the hair was the bit that took the longest, I find painting it really theraputic lol - strange girl I am :rofl:

Very nice! I really like the contrast, and the wings are really nice. They kinda look like a heart. Very cool! :D

Thanks very much! :hug:

Did I comment on this yet? I guess not.

These kinds of works that you do, to me, you really, really excel in. Not that you don't with the Yuuzhan Vong art, believe me. But you do such a great job with matching emotions (this time with lyrics, and what better lyrics than Within Temptation? :D ), and the detail you give is always top-notch. Your use of color and shading... And I'm still envious of how you do the hair in your drawings. I still have that tut you gave me a while back, but I haven't quite gotten to where you are, and I don't think I will. ;) That's fine by me though.

So once again? Awesome work. :thumbsup: and :+fav:

Hey hey and thank you! :hug: I wondered if anyone would notice the lyrics hehe, such a great song I just had to put image to it. There is another along these sorts of lines, though not as wistful as this, darker and a little strange but that's me for ya! :XD:

You mention that tute I gave you, I have actually updated it for painter X, if you'd like the new version?

Thanks again for the support and comments! And of course the fave! :hug:

You updated the tute for Painter X? WANT.

Within Temptation's lyrics are some of the best I've seen. You can really paint an image to all of them.

Thankyee :D :hug: the hair took the longest as I did it section by section - I only really used a fantail brush for some of the more loose looking ends - I never want to see another strand of hair again :XD:

Thanks very much! :D The feathers were a lot more fun to paint than I expected, I had such a hard time with painting them on Vergere, so I worked out a new way of painting them for this.
Glad you like and nice to see you around here again, hope all is well :)

I know!:giggle: I got tired of Jag and Jaina, and so I started shipping Jaina and Zekk. Then, I was like "Jag needs someone as cool as he is" and Jacen had just left the picture... so Tenel Ka! Does that make sense?;p

Nice work here--very morose atmosphere, but it is pretty in its own way. Her hair looks wonderful. The feathers look good, and very appropriate--tattered.

Within Temptation has to be one of my fave bands at the moment too, haven't found many that compare to them.
Thanks very much btw, the refference wings I was using were quite tattered and overly fluffy, but that seems to have worked out quite nicely :)

Feathering the feathers was the most fun part :XD: glad you like it, it's been a while since I posted anything non-fan art, and I am trying to get a portfolio of both together for a possible job interview/s - hopefully should have some more original stuff on the way.
