Forever with my father by DesShade Forever with my father by DesShade
My last thoughts were of you.....

My entry for Kilara's epic contest [link]

I was originally going to title this prelude to purgatory' but... considering how hard it is to loose a loved one, I felt that title was far too calloused..

For those of you familiar with the Avians.. I feel that in this moment Nailmus would have to make a devastating decision.

Do you stay with your son, in these final moments until the Amsk corruption seals your soul away.. or do you take your own life in the hopes of joining him in what lies beyond?

Forever with my father.

Forever with my son.

I remember seeing this back when Kilara was running the contest, and out of all of the entries, this was (and is) still the one that brings me back every now and again. I'm no expert on Avians, but I know enough to grasp the situation here. Even now I can't look at this artwork and read the last three lines of your artist's comments without getting teary.

Amazing job. <3

Thank you so very much~
It was a very hard piece to complete but I'm glad the emotion carried through.
