Resurrection by cinquain Resurrection by cinquain
There was a time
When I could breath my life in you
One by one
Your pale fingers started to move
And I touched your face
And all life was erased
You smiled like an angel
(falling from grace)

We've been slaves to this love
From the moment we touched
And keep begging for more
Of this resurrection

You kissed my lips
With those once cold fingertips
You reached out for me
And oh how you missed
You touched my face
And all life was erased
You smiled like an angel
(falling from grace)

We've been slaves to this love
From the moment we touched
And keep begging for more
Of this resurrection

HIM: Resurrection

charcoal can get tough to use, and when I see this...Wow! You really got it. :D What type of charcoal do you use. I mean as in the size and how soft you got the shadows to look. I tend to have trouble with the pressure.

This is so gorgeous, and the emotion is powerful.
I doubt I could find any other words to describe how I feel as I look at this :]

Half the time I'm always really amazed at the thigs people come up with when using charcoal. And frankly this is no exception. XD

It's so beautiful that if I had the money I would buy the print right now, put it on my wall and gaze lovingly at it everyday!

I frikkin looove it. The lips and hint of teeth are fabulously done.. the eyes are glassy and aren't realistically detailed, at least the way I imagine from that position, which is actually nice. It is a nice change that works fabulously. I love the hair, the rose, the hands... basically all of it haha

I love this :love:

I saw the picture and thought "this reminds me of HIM"...then I noticed the title and thought "I bet this DOES have something to do with HIM" and look! I was right! :wh00t:
heh...

seriously though, the face slightly remind me of Ville....even is it is a woman....

I love the contrast in this and the placement of the figure. Very well put together
