Before The Night Ends by Gwendolyn12 Before The Night Ends by Gwendolyn12
"Before
The night ends
And another
New day turns...
How I hold
How I hold on...
And out of this
Endless blue...
Somehow
I will find you
Before the night ends..."
Yanni & Leslie Mills - Before the Night Ends


My Valentine's pic!:dummy: it actually started out as a work to celebrate my 2 years on dA, but I got carried on by the Valentines spirit and I ended up mixing both themes:lol: The two candles can both represent my two years.... and maybe, a spell she casted? To find her love before the night ends~
It has a double meaning, hence why I chose this song/title;)
Also, I just finished it and it is REALLY LATE here, almost ending the night:lol: I think I just got it in time though, I am happy. Serves perfectly for my purposes.:giggle:

Even if it didn't take me that long to finish (it was around a week to get it all done, from sketch to coloring), it was one of the hardest pics I ever made:lol: I did it in an A3 Canson paper, and the hair and sky took me AGES to finish:faint: I am glad I did. But one of my Copics just died because of it.:ohnoes:
*sigh* what do do.D:

Hope you will all like it.:heart:

:heart: Dedicated to `namenotrequired. You know the why. :heart:

:bulletred: Time: Over 25 hours for sure.:lol:

:bulletblue: Sorry for the super-huge file, I scanned at a higher size to see how it would look likeD:

This will probably be my last submission until I am back from my hiatus. See you all!:blowkiss:
