She would cry..if she could by Shockbolt She would cry..if she could by Shockbolt
The final resting place...on the bottom of the sea.

For ages she would be there until time would grind every last piece to nothing.

No one knew where the ship had sunk, no one knew where to search..and she knew that.

If she could..she would cry..

Painted as a contribution to a friendly art challenge over at [link]
I enjoyed painting this one very much and I finished it in much less time than I thought I would. Which is a good thing :-)

The picture was painted in several layers, no reference of any kind used.

Ask for permission before using this image for any reason.

Photoshop and a wacom intuos 3 tablet used.

Great work! The colors go very well with the dark theme, and I especially like how it has a bit of a sad story to it as well.

So! Finally, I've posted the article about our little wreck, thx for the permission!

Here you can see the article for itself: [link]
Of course, it isn't finished – that's just because we still have to write the story. xD

The part linking to the rest of our little "project" (anyway, it's more fun than anything else) can be seen here: [link]
Just in case you wonder what the ship means to us in the greater content. But as warned, you'll have the pages in German. ^^

Tank you again!

Finally! A perfect wreck! I've been searching page for page, it's hilarious how many sunken ships haven't even sprung leak! xD;

Would you mind if I used your piece (giving reference) for illustrating a wikia-page of a roleplay place? A friend of mine and I are just working on a huge amount on articles about our RP and need beautiful artworks for lack of skill. 8D

heya, feel free to use the image along with my name and a link back to my deviantart page, as long as the project the image is being used with is a non-income project :) Do drop me a link to where it's being used, and sorry for the slow reply. Got too many things happening these days and then my DA account tends to get run over by feedback anbd messages :)

It has a very eerie atmosphere, but that just adds to it. I like the way the sails look, I can almost imagine them shifting about under the water.
