A little break - IFX Challenge: In the Lyrics

A little break from the zombiefest. I gone back to some forum challenge stuff.

I thought I try the newly established bi-weekly challenge. This one gives you two weeks instead of one to whip out a piece of artwork, so that's a bit relief on my already pressured life. This time it's taking your favorite song and bringing it to life in visual form. Now I did something similar a while back, just a personal stuff, and I liked it and I liked this topic too so I decided to take it on.

This is based on the song "Valentine's Day" from Linkin Park's new album Minutes to Midnight. It's almost a literal translation to the lyrics seen below:

My insides all turn to ash, So slow
And blew away as I collapse, So cold
A black wind took them away, From sight
And held the darkness over day, that night

And the clouds above move closer
looking so dissatisfied
but the heartless wind kept blowing, blowing

I used to be my own protection, But not now
Cause my path has lost direction, Somehow
A black wind took you away, From sight
And held the darkness over day, That night

And the clouds above more closer
looking so dissatisfied
and the ground below grew colder
as they put you down inside
but the heartless wind kept blowing, blowing

So now you're gone
And I was wrong
I never knew what it was like
To be alone

On a Valentine's Day


I still have a week and there's still some place I could fix. But I'm liking how it's turning out so far.

Laters...
