Quietus: While Your Lips Are Still Red Picture

Kiss while your lips are still red
While he`s still silent
Rest while bosom is still untouched, unveiled
Hold another hand while the hand`s still without a tool
Drown into eyes while they're still blind
Love while the night still hides the withering dawn

    — While Your Lips Are Still Red by Nightwish
Well despite all the Mucha border decoration, it strangely little time to finish this picture... I so love the pen tool, it perfect for tracing and (re)shaping. Also I've decided that after my next five pieces, I'm gonna spice up the hairstyles of the female characters. Not much still, add few braids and updo's to make it prettier.

This fanart for AngeLhearteD's Quietus. Which is modern take on abduction myth and combines Naruto's characters with ancient greek mythology. The classical mythological subject of the Rape of Persephone to be exact with Sasuke as Hades and Sakura as Persephone.

It's all pretty obvious but I will explain some stuff which inspired me, to sound cool, mind you.
    Persephone and Demeter
    The Pomegranate
