So what the hell are you supposed to do when you've been commissioned to illustrate something peaceful and tranquil, but you've only got dripping, black horror running through your brain 24-7?

I'm glad you asked.
You suck it up, break out that old Enya CD you thought no one knew about and crank Orinoco fucking Flow at ear-bleeding decibals til you get it done, son!

Words have meaning. I read every comment and I always look forward to getting them; thank you so much for your interest in my art, I hope I continue to earn it.

God be with you,
Brad

The darkness is definitely there. The fact that it's so subtle makes it even creepier. I love the misty background and the amazing details of the tree texture to the front :love:
