What Remains of a Friend by Onyx-Philomel What Remains of a Friend by Onyx-Philomel
Before the ravages of infection -- when my fallen friend knew wholeness & life -- he was worth getting to know.

It's macabre & poignant, & something I pretty much took on a whim.

I'm glad that you approve. :)

I love this image and the quote attached. I am actually working on a book series, and many of your images fit perfectly with the fourth book's theme. :) They make me happy. :D

It's interesting to me that some of my images correspond in some way with your books.

Are the books post apocalyptic?

:iconanawakeningslumber:
AnAwakeningSlumber Featured By Owner May 25, 2011  Student General Artist
Yes indeed. What's stranger to me is that you also remind me of a friend I had on another website. He left and never returned, but you are just as articulate. Which is strange among people I meet online. :)

And, the characters in particular that your images remind me of are some of the Horsemen and of Hell, which is an incarnated man in my story. :)

Online, people come & go sporadically. Your friend left a favourable impression at least.


Your story promises to be dark. :D

They do. I've even been one of those people. But, it takes a lot to leave a mysterious impression on me. People seem to always fall at my feet with info I didn't ask for. I guess they find me trustworthy and easy to talk to. Which, of course, isn't a bad thing. I believe in leaving the best parts of yourself with everyone you come into contact with and those are mine I guess. :)

Haha, thank you. As long as we keep in contact, maybe I can remember to perhaps send you a copy of the finished work. :)

I imagine that you are about to turn to a small, battle-weary yet devoted troupe of post-cataclysm soldiers and deliver rousing oration before leading them onward through wasted valleys of the once fertile landscapes of their youth....
