Wake Up and Fight by Acaciathorn Wake Up and Fight by Acaciathorn
I created the sound of madness
Wrote the book on pain
Somehow I'm still here to explain
That the darkest hour never comes in the night
You can sleep with a gun
When you gonna wake up and
Fight


Wanted to try something pop-art-y/comic-book inspired

Kind of a re-draw/re-imagining of this pic from 2009:

Really love the backdrop, and an awesome song to go along with the piece :D

But I'm curious, who's hand prints are on her back?..

I love this! I like the comic book coloring and the add of the screen tone (the dots) I also like how sharp the shadows are and those blood hands on her back are sick! =D

I think that the drawing itself is amazing. It could perfectly be either a gigant panel on a comic or a cover for an issue. At least from my point of view. Absolutely fantastic.

Buuuuuut, what made it better, for me, was the song. I freaking love it!! And somehow, while reading TOST, I thought that song would fit perfectly, I used to listen it all the time, and now it seems I have to do it again because I can't get the song out of my head.

Aaaanyway. Very, very beautiful, Mara, you only get better and better. :heart:

Really? That's so crazy! I just discovered the song recently and thought it'd go perfectly with TOSOT. I guess we have similar taste in angsty fanfic soundtracks lol ;P

No problem you great artist, you deserve it. c:

I do like how the comic book style is used with the blood, almost creating an image of a tainted hero. Or am I reading too deep into it? XD
