One of my recent pieces of art. I'm in love and this took me so long! I'm planning to have this as the cover for an upcoming OC MAP too, which will be using the song "Between the Raindrops" by Lifehouse. Honestly, I couldn't decide rather or not I wanted to do Between the Raindrops or It Is What It Is(another Lifehouse song) for the song. However, I made up my mind for countless reasons. The main reason is the sound and meaning of the songs.
This MAP will be about friendship or love and how that friendship or love was lost or made, and even though the other may be gone, they're still persevering for them. "It Is What It Is" is a song more about love that's lost. However, it sounds more sad than heartwarming and it didn't fit this picture or my idea of the MAP. It does have beautiful lyrics but it's more about a man losing his lover and how he has a difficult time recovery. "Between the Raindrops" is kind of a love song(depending how you look at it), but it's meaning that no matter what challenges they face, they'll be there for eachother. That's what I'm going for!
This picture is of my OC Spirit and my "sister's"(she's not my actual sister but she's like a sister to me for how close we are) OC Coloratura. No, my friend isn't dead like her OC is right now, so don't worry about me.
Coloratura and Spirit were like sisters(and they're actually distant cousins, lol), always there for one another, fighting for eachother, raising a clan together even. When they were together, no one could stop them. They truely loved one another. But when Coloratura died, her spirit stayed with Spirit. Spirit knew that Coloratura was with her. Spirit would never forget her "sister". When Spirit died later on, they reunited, and they never parted from one another after that. They were always like one cat... One soul...
These events happen in my "Blood and War" and "Ashes and Tears" series that I'm writing. Blood and War is when they're young and they have a war with dogs and Ashes and Tears is when they form their clan up to when Spirit dies. I hope to have more up on those series soon! I hoped you enjoyed this!
