You cant reach me here by DesShade You cant reach me here by DesShade
It started as a whisper...

A hint of warmth amidst the somber dirge of the rain. The stained earth fell forgotten as his gaze rose to greet a long lost, but never forgotten comfort.

The gentle touch of the mists encircled him. Drowning the pains of war beneath its gossamer curtains, and silencing the sorrowful rains that mourned from embers above.

The swelling in his heart cried out for his dear one, as the screams of the battle again resumed.

In this moment he felt her touch beside him... and whispered, 'you cannot reach me here....'

My entry for Kilar's epic contest [link]

Thank you all.. so very much.

Your skills absolutely blow my mind.
The detail and the message in this picture are so perfecttt
And the passage in the description is like, wow. Did you write it yourself?

If there was something I could find to criticize, it would be that the border being pixelated bothers me.
But that's just me xD

Amazing work =]]

Thank you sooo very much for your comments ^^
Both the passage and the border were completely last second since the contest was ending in less then 5 minutes. ^.^''
But I do agree with you the border is distracting~
If I can dig up the original file I will most definitely fix that!
Thank you again so very much!

Your art style is so different now... so... advanced.

Awww.. It means alot to hear you say that.
Lately my art has been unpredictable at best.. It feels like my inspiration and current skill level are at war with themselves.
Makes for very irritation drawing sessions since I never know when one is gunna turn out right.
