Book Spirit Hiramori by curlyhair Book Spirit Hiramori by curlyhair
I wasn't that active recently. I'm sorry >_<
I've got a very big serious commission and I was working a lot on it + I had a nice trip to Italy, but it deserves at least a journal entry and new ID! :D So stay tuned.
Ahh.. Almost forgot.. This is a guardian book spirit Hiramori :D Just another crazy idea turned to life. She's not that perfect,but I'm glad to paint something for myself after a long break.
For the book I took some old romantic poetry,but don't try to read it - it's just a texture - romance is not in favor in our tough artistic life hhhhh

:iconragingbearpaws: wrote some beautiful poetry inspired by my painting,so I've decided to add here at description. Thank you!

my life is bound
between these words
dare to touch these pages
others have tried for ages
their hearts lay beating
inside my soul
their blood is ink
used for these words
the bones are ground
for writing words
their skin is fine
to scribe upon
between these words
my life is bound

Book Spirit Hiramori by *curlyhair Not only did it catch my attention the first time around with the atmosphere and detail put in to this, it keeps pulling me back time and time again, almost searching for the story to go with this piece.

I really love the way her dress falls over the edge of the book and fades away as what appears to be rose petals. I feel a lot of pain, looking at this, and the petals seem to instill a sad gentleness which only adds to the spirit of this piece. Awesome work~
