Lunar Lament by Melodieous Lunar Lament by Melodieous
/Edit: Rescanned -- Added a few changes and highlights and added the necklace that I forgot to paint.

The theme of this piece is very personal. I based it off the song Lunar Lament by Demons and Wizards. The composition is suppose to be circular but I think I failed at that *_*

Materials: Watercolors (no white paint used) on Arches HotPressed - 12x16
Model stock reference: *auroradreams

I'm existing hopelessly
'Cause I can't reach the sun

Darkness covers me
My soul has yet to long
I'm looking for serenity
'Cause I can't reach the sun

Take another look
At yourself what do you see?
You drift alone in circles
And you can't reach the sun
Are you a prisoner
Of an endless war
Or trapped in sadness
You can't reach the sun

Love this even better than the fairy. You are brilliant at light and shade and great interpretation of the song as well.
