Artwork Description

My darkness... Roses of blood dance in raven hair, pallid flesh moves with smooth seduction. Ethereal and unreal, shadow given flesh and form. Each night my sins come back to haunt me...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I've watched sin city one too many times. This was one of a couple of experiements in a limited palette. Nothing but every shade of cool grey, black, white and a red pencil.

Edit: because someone asked, this was done with prismacolor pencils on black cardstock.
