I walk alone ...

I  haven't been feeling very inspired when it comes to my art work lately.
To give myself a kick start I decided to make some premade backgrounds for digital artist use.


This work was born out of these premades. I used 3 of Jerry's from Shadowhouse Creations textures and his wonderful brushes. The model is Marie from the fabulous Grinmir-stock.

Alone by ~Brenda-Starr~
Alone, a photo by ~Brenda-Starr~ on Flickr.
From childhood's hour I have not been
        As others were; I have not seen
        As others saw; I could not bring
        My passions from a common spring.
        From the same source I have not taken
        My sorrow; I could not awaken
        My heart to joy at the same tone;
        And all I loved, I loved alone.
        Then- in my childhood, in the dawn
        Of a most stormy life- was drawn
        From every depth of good and ill
        The mystery which binds me still:
        From the torrent, or the fountain,
        From the red cliff of the mountain,
        From the sun that round me rolled
        In its autumn tint of gold,
        From the lightning in the sky
        As it passed me flying by,
        From the thunder and the storm,
        And the cloud that took the form
        (When the rest of Heaven was blue)
        Of a demon in my view.

Edgar Allan Poe
