Nothing Satisfies But Your Soul by Schwartze Nothing Satisfies But Your Soul by Schwartze

:bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack:OH DEATH ;;
But what is this, that I cant see
with ice cold hands taking hold of me

When God is gone and the Devil takes hold,
who will have mercy on your soul

Oh, Death, оh Death, oh Death,

No wealth, no ruin, no silver, no gold
Nothing satisfies me but your soul

Oh, Death,
Well I am Death, none can excel,
I'll open the door to heaven or hell.

Oh, Death, оh Death,
my name is Death and the end is here...


- Jen Titus


:bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack:ABOUT THIS IMAGE ;;
Well, this piece is for a contest hosted by the lovely *ladynaevia . It is for characterizing death in a photomanipulation, and I couldn't help but think of this song. The sudden image of a white mare ferrying the souls of the dead across the river. She eats the souls first, devours them as they are the only food that will sustain her. A raven is her only companion.

I absolutely LOVE this manipulation. As soon as I saw it it caught my eye. I literally felt death in the image. The lighting is great and the way the ghost horses look is perfect! The mane and tail and flawless! Everything about this image flows. If I didn't know better I would think it had always been one picture. The white mare with blood makes it even scarier. It just has that dark feel to it. It's not horror but it just has a great deal of emotion in it. This is definitely one of the best horse manipulations I've seen on DevianART! Amazing Job!

Sorry, I have no time "/ I'm working with a circus here in Sweden and it's a lot of work. But I'm thinking of joining Frostbite after the tour is finished this fall =)

Yeah it's a lot of work but I like it! Yes, I'll see how much time I'll get on my hands ;) But I really miss roleplaying so I'll probably make time!

All the best to you and the others!

this is beautiful. :heart:
somehow you've managed to make the mare look washed out and wasted away as well. she's defeated, but in an eerily elegant way. -shot- /my retarded interpretation.

Thank you so much for the feedback! I tried to get that sort of... beautiful yet cruel sort of thing. Looking wasted away just adds to that effect. :D
Thank you

Since my account's is named after my golden, a golden retriever would probably be best.
