inspired by the Evanescence track 'Before the Dawn' but this is really a piece of gift/tribute art to who is an artist who has inspired me ever since i found her work and also kindly gave me some very good tips on photomanipping.

"Meet me after dark again and I'll hold you
I want nothing more than to see you there

And maybe tonight, we'll fly so far away
We'll be lost before the dawn

If only night can hold you where i can see you, my love
Then let me never ever wake again

And maybe tonight, we'll fly so far away
We'll be lost before the dawn

somehow i know that we cant wake again from this dream
it's not real, but it's ours

Maybe tonight, we'll fly so far away
We'll be lost before the dawn
Maybe tonight, we'll fly so far away
We'll be lost before the dawn " Before the Dawn by Evanescence

I adore this so much...I almost teared up while viewing it....I so want to learn how to paint like this, unfortunately there isn't anyone around here locally to mentor me, and I don't even know where to begin on how to find specific tutorials on learning these techniques. Maybe you could send me a few tips? :)

I'm begging...haha

Excellent work. The way she's turned toward the cold shadows is as expressive as the tears that shine like diamonds. Both convey a sense of regret, and make this scene more enigmatic.
