Will There Ever Be Light? by Siobhan68 Will There Ever Be Light? by Siobhan68
Blood surging
A dagger in the night
Green eyes flashing
Will there ever be light?


This is my entry for the Fanfiction Contest of :iconmithgariel: :iconanubishoarmurath:

This is Keith, the main character of *Hounds And Bitches*.
It is a ballpen drawing and only the blood and the eyes of Keith are coloured with pencils. No underlaying sketch, the drawing just grew and grew...

My thoughts about the drawing:
Keith lives in the dark, he believes he IS somehow the darkness. The light makes him soft, softness means weakness, because you can be hurt down to the core. So he embraces the darkness... as a friend, as protection, as his only hope of survival. Don't let them have your mind... they may have your body, but not your mind.
Lately Keith has seen the light, has seen *love*. It has melted away and softened the walls he built around his soul and now he is weak...
What will Keith embrace, light or shadow and who is the person in the back? Is it a threat, like Seoras, is it Aodh, his darkness, or is it Grahame... and is Grahame the light in the end?
It was on purpose to make that NOT clear, to leave some room for speculations... I'll leave it up to the beholder to decide.

I hope you like my entry! It was great fun and turned out well enough.
Size, about 20 cm wide. The text is no citation but written by me.

I like this drawing: the colour scheme is beutiful and the blood looks very erm... fluid. It's also nice how you made use of the blood to build a border. :clap:

I'm really happy about the outcome... and that you like it!
I'm working on a new sketch... maybe it will be one of the prices! It seems intense... we'll see.

:) Awesome.
I'm even toying with the idea that if the novels get published (which is an idea after all the editing - to self publish them), we could perhaps use some of the entries as illustrations.

That would be a wonderful idea! I think the different styles of different artists would be a very interesting add-on! I'm sooooo curious about the other entries... I can't wait!!!

So am I. Of course, not everybody is as fast as you. So far I've just received a spam note... That was not a nice foundation.

Bleh... :bleh:
That is not nice indeed. As far as I read there are other participants too and there will be more interesting entries soon, I'm sure. My muse was just nice enough to give me a good inspiration soon. ;P
Usually I'm rather lazy... :sleep:
We'll have to reign our curiosity, I suppose and just let them come...
Keep smiling, and the world will smile back... at least I'll do for sure!!!! *smiles broadly*

There will be other entries, I'm sure. Just depressed during the time being...

Keep your head up! Difficult times make us artists all the better, because much more emotions flow into our works!
A little sunshine from Neuss to you:

The weather is wonderful at the moment! Sunshine, cool, fresh air, blue skies and a few fluffy sheep shaped clouds! :flirty:
