Swamp by asialiv Swamp by asialiv
"In the swamp behind my house I found a softer world. They understand what I had to do for love. They don't believe in restraining orders."
~ A Softer World ~

- Alright, this took forever and then some.

- The inspiration for this one came from asofterworld.com, which is a website. You should check it out... It's amazing.

- The original quote says: "In the caves behind my house...", but SWAMP felt better at the time.

- No references for the background, so maybe that's why it looks weird.

- Hope you like it...

:P

very dramatic and comical. the imagery along with your comment lead to thought, bt the tranquility of the background attenuates "what had to be done."

The blood trail in the water is brilliant! Artists tend to be more critical of their own work than they should. Very, very nice work.
