), Can't say I'm a big fan of the music so no point fangasming to me over it
but as soon as I noticed one titled "Dark side of the Sun" - well I got a pretty strange but literal image in my head...A black sun, eerily still managing to illumate its surroundings with its feeble glow.
This was all digitally painted, making that the second one in a row done that way I guess. I can't wait to do something with my beloved 3D again but recently most of my ideas have little use for it and plus I feel obligated to excercise my general Digital painting skills again anyway, no textures or stocks used either
Lastly, only hours before submitting this I was informed that a long-time and loyal watcher of mine *ErilisVampyre
had passed away. Knowing that she would have loved this as much as all my other works, I dedicate this to her
