'A Soul Fades' by QuantumSuz 'A Soul Fades' by QuantumSuz
That which reminds me

Is there any point in waiting here?
Empty eyes as statue stare,
Fragments of places
Where I have tried and failed to forget
Frozen here amidst the seven
And spiralling between the two
Haunting forever

Is there anything I would rather do?
Can't even burn that which reminds me
Crumble to my ground; giving up
Breeze scattering ash.
You may be a glance away
But your fading soul remains deep under
Diving forever

Ghost melody echoes in my head
I'm waiting for my wings to grow
So I may spread feathered tip
And float away, wingbeat slow.
Far away choir sings minor
Yet nothing but silence graces waters' edge
Patiently forever

Let these feathers fall; I shall leave this place
A fear becomes too real; besides
Who mourns upon the grave of a soul alone?
As long as I feel, I cannot slip away
Your remains are still here...
Such a thought turns me to dust inside
Understanding forever

-----------------------------------------


Approx 20 hours in Photoshop from scratch. I'm trying a more soft painting style. I also looked more closely at some references for the hands, and did a bit of research into wing shapes. I enjoyed making this piece for the most part, I could really engage with the feeling in me. It seeped its way down from my head to the canvas; It made me want to cry at times. Its amazing what art can do to me.
I think I'll make this one into a print too, as its fairly well polished in terms of the detailwork.

I really hope people like it :)

I love this piece for several reasons. I have seen few well made gothic costuming in all white that still looks goth- and two: I love the coloring on the water!

This is a really sad and inspiring piece, it captures so many emotions, each element represents something different and strong.

The wing research was worth it apparently because those are some of the most well done photo shop wings I have ever seen.
