Never Could Be Any Other Way by Melancholita Never Could Be Any Other Way by Melancholita
It could have happened any other day,
Just when you thought that things were here to stay.
And time will not fix you,
Better lay down and die.
But why would you want to,
When you've got other things to do that involve
people around you (...)?

(Neils Children, Never Could Be Any Other Way - Dimly Lit)

This is a really amazing drawing; I love how even though, everything is black & white, I can see everything clearly like the dead girl floating downstream (from the river to various plants and trees in the background); fantastic job :)

This is amazing, it's beyond words. Her hands, the expression of sorrow in her eyes, but most especially the trees/background scenery- WOW! Another amazing piece, I just love your art!!

Your style suits very well with dark themes like this. The character here is so utterly sad and inconsolable to the point of feeling pity for her. The picture in general feels agonizing and the fact it does so speaks for itself.

This is beautiful~:heart:

The pose and expression is lovely and making the flowers red give it a nice touch. I personally take a liking to black and white artwork, especially if it has some red in it! 

I believe you earned yourself another watcher! ;)

Thanks, I wanted to capture the atmosphere of the song in a picture and hope I did it justice.

I think this is my favourite of your works. The sort... flat blackness that's part of your style works really well here to create a dim, frightening "detached from the world" atmosphere.
