Dying Hopes, Last Wishes by Iribel Dying Hopes, Last Wishes by Iribel
My entry for the week 16 challenge held by :iconcreatebyweek:

"So many years ago, many more than I'd
Even care to bear in my mind
From the darkest of all places I found you

All the limbs in their right places
And a heart made of real gold
Sell me your little doll, oh sir, I ask you kind
...

Be careful what you wish for
Wishes might come alive
The twines are pulling me every day and night...
The show, the glitter and all the fame
I'd give away for a life
Some things can end with a word, they say
This only ends with a sharp knife."

Sonata Arctica - The Boy Who Wanted To Be A Real Puppet


:blackrose:

Not quite much my usual style, I think... :P I've spent a lot of time with this but I'm still not sure if I'm happy with the way this came out. However, it's the only vision I got from =createbyweek's this week challenge image - inspired by Sonata Arctica, once again. The entire song and the entire story can be found here -> [link]
