End of Dreams by Onyx-Philomel End of Dreams by Onyx-Philomel
In the interlude between death throes & death – when the heart is all but still & the body is too wan to draw breath – I appear to signify the end of dreams.

I just keep looking at this photograph attempting to find adequate words for why I love this.  There's something about this piece that draws me in and I'm having difficulty pinpointing exactly what it is. But, occasionally that's the best thing about art to me: you don't always have to understand exactly why it makes you feel something, so long as it made you feel.  There's something dark and raw about this.  The mask definitely helps in creating that sense, but there's something in your eyes as well.  Dark and raw, yes, but also wild, mysterious, haunting, beautiful, beckoning, but dangerous and violent.  The quote is perfect and provides a darker perspective to the photograph.  Inspiring work!

I rely on my eyes since I regularly conceal my face. :nod:

Stunning.
I especially like how you have achieved difference between the various shades of black so that they all show to beautiful effect.
