The Curse by Sidonie The Curse by Sidonie
Happy Hallowe'en - All Hallows' Eve - Samhain !

PRINTS AVAILABLE!


"If you could only see the beast you've made of me
I held it in but now it seems you've set it running free
Screaming in the dark, I howl when we're apart
Drag my teeth across your chest to taste your beating heart

My fingers claw your skin, try to tear my way in
You are the moon that breaks the night for which I have to howl
My fingers claw your skin, try to tear my way in
You are the moon that breaks the night for which I have to

Howl, howl
Howl, howl

Now there's no holding back, I'm making to attack
My blood is singing with your voice, I want to pour it out
The saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound
I hunt for you with bloody feet across the hallowed ground

Like some child possessed, the beast howls in my veins
I want to find you, tear out all of your tenderness

And howl, howl
Howl, howl

Be careful of the curse that falls on young lovers
Starts so soft and sweet and turns them to hunters


The fabric of your flesh, pure as a wedding dress
Until I wrap myself inside your arms I cannot rest
The saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound
I hunt for you with bloody feet across the hallowed ground

And howl

Be careful of the curse that falls on young lovers
Starts so soft and sweet and turns them to hunters

A man who's pure of heart and says his prayers by night
May still become a wolf when the autumn moon is bright

If you could only see the beast you've made of me
I held it in but now it seems you've set it running free
The saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound
I hunt for you with bloody feet across the hallowed ground"



Florence + the Machine - Howl

Moderate warning for blood, I don't know if it's necessary though?

I love this concept on werewolves, to not just be a mindless killer but to still have that human emotion intact. At least that's what I got from this picture. Look's awesome too!

Thank you! Yes, I do have to agree. I'm glad you can see the emotion in the piece, there was definitely feelings involved when I created it :)

HOW DO YOU DRAW THAT?

Sidonie Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Haha, what a broad question. I drew him in my sketchbook, took a photo, opened photoshop, outlined and readjusted the linework until I was pleased with it, and painted MANY layers overtop and underneath until it was how I liked! Definitely took over 20 hours I think. I use a wacom bamboo create tablet. If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask :)

Excellent piece, but why is everyone releasing Samhain and halloween pieces so far past the time that the were occuring? Did everyone get a delayed reaction?

This piece is very well done, you have excellent contrast even with all the darker colors, nothing gets lost. You can clearly see the detail in the branches of the pine trees that are close and the ones in the distance don't get lost either because they have just the right amount of detail and contrast with the moonlight hitting them. The clouds are extremely well done, they actually look like they could just float off the page because they look so natural. And saving the best for last, the wolf looks very good, the pose looks natural and flowing. It doesn't look awkward or forced and definitely flows with the rest of the background, and the fur looks excellent as well. The fur flows naturally and yet has that "chunky" sort of look, like the fur is so thick that it kind of has those little chunks that stick together, I hope that makes sense lol. But over all this is a wonderful piece and I enjoyed getting entranced by its beauty.
