I don't know Octavia. All I know is this. I love this work. It is just amazing... I don't know how to put it but the contrast of the black against the white skin with the dabs of red on the face and the smeared lipstick covering the twitching smile and the closed eyes.... it is just amazing. The cal soothing expressions along with the thorns above and the background... i am in love
Wait wait is that so? Why don't you look at the story, see if it needs reworking, get it proofed and see if you can publish it - if alone, good enough, if not then you can write a series of short stories of the similar nature. I would love to read it!!
You also have an illustrator... yourself anyways - do show it to me if you are comfortable!
Oh, that's very kind of you! If you are interested, it's actually already here on DA somnolent-droid.deviantart.com/art/The-Curse-of-Octavia-Archaic-Horror-Story-362749650 Like I say, I wrote it ages ago so it probably does need some touching up!
Octavia is very well drawn m'friend. Scary, stark, and downright terrifying frankly... What else... I love the hair... I absolutely love the hair... I've never come across something this awesome since... I guess your poems and your horror stories...
The face is what makes the hair stand out... Its a blank... contemplative... and frightening stare... It tells nothing, but it doesn't need to... Awesome really...
Wow, thanks very kindly for such a kindly comment! Appologies for such a vast delay in replying: I've been absent for months, again. Thank you also for your numerous and generous mentions of me. I'm really not deserving! How's life and work? I hope everything is working in your favour.
