Eternity Awaits by Saimain Eternity Awaits by Saimain
It's colder than before
The seasons took all they had come for
Now winter dances here
It seems so fitting don't you think
To dress the ground in white and grey?

It's so quiet I can hear…
My thoughts touching every second
That I spent waiting for you
Circumstances afford me
No second chance to tell you
How much I've missed you

My beloved do you know
When the warm wind comes again
Another year will start to pass
And please don't ask me why I'm here
Something deeper brought me
Than a need to remember

Grant me wings that I might fly
My restless soul is longing
No pain remains, no feeling
Eternity awaits

Partial lyrics from "Beloved" by VNV Nation.

A "speedpaint" (I use the term loosely because this actually took me three days and there's some pencil in it) of Morgan and Nimri, in a moment that may never happen. It's the dead of winter and she is out of his reach, now, secluded away in heavily-guarded quarters. He was forced to return her to her people when she was poisoned in a brutal attack, and though she will recover in time, both her physical strength and her power as queen, he may have lost her forever.

So. I love your pictures. I don't know what else to say! They're amazing and I am so jealous of your talent! But, (and this may just be my stupidity), I want to read the story and when I click on the link it only shows me your artwork, character biographies and a map. WHERE CAN I READ THE STORY?!
Saimain Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2011
The story is not available online or in print, I'm sorry about that. Just the artwork and character/world information.

Oh, okay :) It sounds like such an interesting story. If you ever ended up writing something more to it, I would love to read it :)

I love your pictures! (I really do!)

Um, I've got an odd question . . . I've recently started doing illustrations to go with some stories I'm working on (neither are professional by any stretch of the imagination), but I have problems with drawing the pointed ears I need for one boy who is a dragon in disguise (For lack of a better way of putting it at the moment; and no, that's not how it's phrased in the story.). I was wondering if you would mind if I used your ears for reference while I practice. I've never drawn ears like this before, and I wanted to ask before I do it. (I'm NOT trying to steal your art, nor do I plan to take credit for it, but I need something to look at to go by when I'm first starting out. And if you say no, please be gentle. I feel really bad about asking you about this . . .)
