They have no names. The elf was wounded in a skirmish the afternoon before, fighting beside his mercenary in the king's hired army. He lay bleeding through the night - bleeding and talking. There is, after all, so much to say in a lifetime. Now that morning's come, they've said it all. Even goodbye.

I already saw this picture a while ago, but when I met it again during a tour, I was really happy. This drawing makes me smile, yet it also gets my eyes a little wet... In short, I really, really love it.

actually I never saw this as a gay peice untill i read the comments, perhaps that is why i was befuddled by the girl bleeding... because it was the boy. =S i have no conflict with it, its just i really did think the one bleeding was a girl. Also, how had theother died? Or had he ??
=S anyhow great picture =) it is rather nicely done.

i haven't been commenting lately, but this is really beautiful. i love the way you colored it , it really pulls you more towards the emotion. Its complex, perhaps just the fact that they both look so accepting of his fate makes it that much more sad. Once again, great work, I'm gonna have to check out the rest of your gallery. ^^

I have to say this is one of the most beautiful pieces of art i've seen. even though the picture is small it holds a lot more emotion. and i love the little story to the picture it so touching! i hope to see more pictures like this from you keep it up!!!

I think this is very beautiful. I love facial expressions and your attention to anatomy. Your gallery is all together very beautiful and filled with very lovely heartfelt pieces.

I'm almost inspired to update mine since i haven't done it in about a year.


How on earth did you learn to water color? I can oil paint but water color is just something completely different. Your art contains the bold full colors i long for and yet it still retains the translucent quality that makes watercolor so lovely...

This is really, really good. I like both the coloured and the uncoloured version, both sleep and death. They are both very touching. Well done!!!

Guys with guys.... yummmm (that’s right, I said YUM)
I don’t see why people have problems with gay people *shrugs*

This piece is so beautiful and so touching. They’re so peaceful, it makes me want to cry. They remind of my RP characters.
