I drew the original drawing of this almost a year ago as a gift for Glo, and she loved it...  Then the next day I edited in all my other creature drawings to make it seem more claustrophobic.  Over the last 2 weeks I have finally been experimenting with inking the outlines of all my drawings instead of just leaving them as mechanical pencil shades.  When I had finished doing that with this drawing, I figured "What the hell, why not try actually colouring the damn thing?"  So, I spent the last 3 days on that...All colours were done with just a set of 20 coloured pens, so my colour options were limited.  Otherwise there would be more green...  There are parts I think work, and others that don't as much...  The green slime monster, and the big sinewy face in the back both turned out amazing!!Once again, I present a gift for Glo...  Enjoy... "I found the note...  I'm sorry... I'm so sorry..." "I remember it all too... Back then... When I..." "You saw something in me... Past the pride, the ego... There was love there... Unrequited..." "We were the chosen of gods... Blessed or cursed with the strength to hold back the darkness..." "I thought nothing could could oppose the Azurin... That we were untouchable..." "That the Nightmares were weak when we stood together..." "Time after time they came at us...  We stood above the broken bodies of our enemies and threw them back into the abyss..." "But all things that change do so in an instant...  Instances of hope or despair..." "One terrible instant and every single night since I have known the truth..." "The only real nightmare..." "Was losing you..."
