Octavia by Somnolent-Droid Octavia by Somnolent-Droid
I thought I'd revive Octavia in time for Halloween. 

Apologies for my absence. I'll be back on DA and interactive at some point - I just don't know when! Hope you're all doing well! :)

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 :iconiloveyouplz:

Oh, Octavia is a story I wrote a good while back. It's done in the style of a gothic romance from the 19th C. It's over 7,000 words - the longest thing I've ever managed to write! XD

Thank you so much for so many kind words. It means so much that you liked it!

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!

Very cool. I almost want to replicate this image with a porcalin mask and some gnarled tree branches. Reminds me a little bit of the album art for Roadhouse tapes.

Oh, I'm really glad you like it! Yes - porcelain mask and tree branches would be perfect! If you ever did that I'd love to see :)

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. :)
