Gallows Song by mangacheese1818


Welp, I'm not dead. I'm now a freshman at the School of Visual Arts in NYC, so I don't have too much free time for personal projects anymore. This piece is old...from February, I think?

A dead man reflects on the events that lead to his hanging. His song remains the last tie to his mortal life.

Based off one of my favorite songs, [url="]"Galgasång"[/url] (for you metal-haters, don't worry. It's acoustic.) It's not really that complex: a man talks about his accomplishments, then about the graveyard where he now resides; singing his "gallows song". But it's sad, lonely, and touching in a way I didn't expect it to be.
(Here's the English translation, if you want it.)

luckylace222I love how his hanging rope is just cut and limping behind his back, almost like he escaped, and wants to go back home. This would be an amazing/deep Halloween theme. Looking back at the place you died. I love your blotchy shading here. It kind of adds to the nostalgia feel. Did you mean to make that foot anatomically incorrect? xD
