The only thing I can think of when I look at this is that it looks like a reference to Le Mis..I know it's not but damn...Anyway, wonderful work. You have a superb gallery.

I may not know what this is about, but I can clearly see the emotion inside of it. Whatever it refers to, I hope everything gets better. That's the best I can do.

Though I can say that this painting is beautiful and poignant.

Nice contrast between the greyscale character and the red splash in the background :)

Beautiful work! Love Link's solemn display of emotion, as well as her hair and flag being windblown! :)

Beautiful, bold design! I love how the use of colour is limited to the waving flag, and the atmospheric lighting gives it an almost dream-like appearance. Despite being more simplistic than some of your other work, I think that this one is my favourite so far. ;)

I'll say personally I think its very... uh Silent.

As in void of noise, more peaceful than anything, like at the edge of the universe.

But that's just the feeling i get from it, I really like it...

Kewwww awesome how you have a diffrence between colour and grey tints and tones it's different from your other work... not that your other work is bad or anything far from it it's just interesting to see a new side of Linkev :D Was this inspired by "Flags of our Father's" by any chance? (great movie)

This wasn't actually inspired by anything, save for an entirely instrumental song.

Thanks so much! :)

A Song For Our Fathers by Explosions in the Sky. If you want, I can send you the song via notes or sommat.

I'd appreciate that alot :) especially since one of your last pics led to my favourite song EVAH! (it was that Muse - Map of the Problematique one by the way)

That would be "A Song For Our Fathers" by Explosions in the Sky, or so I would assume. I was listening to their music before my MP3 player just died. >.<
