When Autumn Leaves Fall... by iluviar When Autumn Leaves Fall... by iluviar
Some of my works are available for licensing as CD/book covers, contact me for details.

The theme of my work is "Memento Mori". Everything comes to its end someday... And here I tried to express it. I added some symbols which in my opinion are associated with Death: falling leaves, naked trees, a pocket watch on the girl's neck (it stands for Time that's running out), tombs... <div align="center">This work is very important to me, and I hope you'll like it...

This is my entry for "Memento Mori Contest" by *Asaenath [link]

There seems to be a great sorrow in the facial expressions of the woman sitting next to the gravestone. How she is sitting next to the gravestone also gives an added effect of sorrow and feelings of regret, fear, and sadness. The loss of leaves from the tree in the upper right side of the photo goes to accent her loss of the the person she loved dearly. Her being at the person's grave at night and the fog and full moon only goes to accent the sorrow she is feeling. Yet it seems she is a brave woman who can hold her own. Otherwise, she would be crying in the picture. So much emotion and thought is portrayed in this picture that it gives a sense of dark bravery that only people who have lost someone dear to them would understand.

Very dark and beautiful. I really like the fog effect as well as the somber look on the girl's face.
