The Playful Courter (?) by FoxInShadow The Playful Courter (?) by FoxInShadow
Drawing for an old friend, :iconverathevix:

Sorry if I've made it too... melancholic, but that's all I've had in mind. Tried to give it an actual meaning

Hm, I've been raking my head night and day! But I guess I'm not as eloquent in my language as I would need to be to describe what this means to me.
The light, ever so subtle, gives the ruins an almost gold-like tint in my imagination; the beauty in what is lost, like memories, fading but still with the power to inspire awe and melancholy for times gone by. Heh, as Woody Allen put it; Ozymandias-melancholia.
The figure of the lady is stunning, her dress seemingly morphs her into the ruin; a lone witness to a civilization come and gone, left to observe the inevitable decay of a dead people and the life that takes its place, which gazes back with its own sense of wonder at what once was. Grandiose, absolutely beautiful; it brought tears to my eyes. It affected me more deeply than what I dare speka.

This is all I wanted to hear, thank you. I had fun putting all the little details there and there. Couldn't draw anything else, had only this in mind

If I were to go into more depth I'm sure I could write a thousand words on this! No more though, that's the word limit for pictures, you know. =/

And hey, when inspiration strikes there's naught that can be done until the idea is out into the world! I'm glad that this is what you drew, after seeing it I can't actually imagine what else you could have done, heh.

I see a rather lonely woman being greeted by an old friend who may or may not be her pet
I dunno, doesn't look sad to me? With that lighting it looks like the dawn of a new day with her buddy returning to her =)

To me it looks like the woman is on a balcony so I figure she's been there for a while and the fox just arrived =)
