This picture is of a woman on her wedding day. The only way to understand it is to know the story. On her wedding day, her groom fell to a deadly illness. She has limited in which to find the cure, which is a is a very rare type of liily. The only way to retrieve the lily is to travel to a dark, mystic land that holds all kinds of demons and monsters. In this place lies a creatures that grows the lilies. He will give them to you, but you cannot look him in the eye or you will become a flower. She smiling so as not to upset the creature. This is an original story that I came up with but only after reading a story from the Grimm's Fairytale book was I able to think of something so dreadfully romantic. I don't do many pictures in just plain shading, but this is a dark piece so I believed it would only justify itself in a dark tone.
