Usually I don't draw death. Usually I'm just drawing happy dragons and serious archers and body studies. ... But we were studying the Holocaust in History and I was feeling really depressed walking out of class. I feel much better now. Our true eternal enemy is not Death, but Time, and is represented by the hourglass he holds in his right hand.

Yeah, first comment!
Any way, let me know if I start to annoy you.lol. So yeah, this picture is way cool and I totally agree with the time thing. Man, I never knew you, Margaret Syverud, had a morbid side. . . that's REALLY scary!

A very impressive piece of work I must say. It strikes a very hefty cloak of moodiness around itself. You have done very well.

Hey, I wanted you to draw my rpg charcter, Oddette (funny, I know, but I wanted a sprite that could kick but and still have a nice name), could you post your e-mail address after this comment so I can e-mail you (my e-mail address has my last name and initials in it, so I don't want to post it up on elfwood).

1 Meg Syverud replies: "I know how it is... Bla.
But really, Oddette is a sweet name! Just like the princess from the Swan Princess... also a sweet movie! ^-^
If you want to contact me, go to my "main page" and hit the "email" button on the right hand side of the page in the menu. Hope to hear from you! "

I hated doing the holocaust unit, you probably had a more indepth look into it, considering I was in 6th grade. We watched a really depressing movie, children dying, hanging etc. Anyways, this picture is excellent, that was exactly how I felt walking out after that movie.

8 Meg Syverud replies: "Nnnnng.
Have you read "Night" yet? That's the telling of the tale of the Holocaust from an actual witness, and if THAT isn't the saddest and most deppressing thing in the world, I don't know what is. That guy lost EVERYTHING: his family, all his possessions, his RELIGION, his EMOTIONS, even. He is definitely one to admire.
But yeah, you just wait 'till you study it in Sophomore year of high school.

Thats cool, the grim reaper with angelic wings, great mix, it looks awsome.

wow....the wings are really cool....
and feathered wings are neither angelic, nor leathery wings demonic, and who ever said that death was a demon in the first place? jeez people...come on.
