The ascend by henning
I really want to warn about painting hair like this, waaay to time consuming
Following are some really nice words written specially for this picture by Alinta Brown, which I think describes this picture really well:
"It wasn't fair, but then it never was. Her duty was to be the bridge, the gap taker, the soul bringer. As the day shone crystal bright around her, she leaned down and placed gentle hands on the child's mind. Sadness bleek and unfathomably clothed her but with it the calm acceptance and slight joy knowing this child, one of many, would find comfort in her presence. Stars flashed, silver motes danced, and the soul was released to the sky. No, it wasn't fair, but then it never will be."
