My first entry (hopefully not too late) for ~digital-amphetamine's contest "Dark is my demeanour" [link]

Inspired, again, by Evanescence ("Hello"):
"...Hello
I'm still here
All that's left of yesterday..."

It's supposed to be very sad, with the girl in white rising after a sleepless night to look through the window of the abandoned house, the cold sunrise, the restless geese, the fading light of the candles... Those candles gave me some trouble but I achieved the balance and a bit of symbolism too :D And I know it seems weird that the dress and the curtain should be casting shadows on each other but my poor knowledge of physics told me to do so :giggle:

With thanks to:
:iconelandria: - girl
:icondigital-amphetamine: - room and candles
:iconmscrys-stock: - background with birds

Wow, this has a very high professional quality to it! Excellent work! :) I like that it is blended so well, that there is no visible separation between any of the objects as often noticed in many pieces.

Oh thank you!! :hug: I really did my best, being a perfectionist I hate bad blending too...

I think this work has a lot of emotion in it ... you have definitely got an eye for composition as well.

Thank you :glomp: I was hoping someone would appreciate the candles I added for balance in the composition :D As for the emotions.. They're my own.... Reminds me of my insomnia :D
