As promised in my December painting challenge, work has begun on the Destroyer! Work has also started on Eiryss too, but I took this picture before that began, so I’ll post some more pictures later.
I want him to look work and battle weary. He’s going to have some rust spots and some chips, and snow clumped on him too. I was deliberatley slapdash with the highlighting to start giving him that ‘been in a few fights’ type look.
Can you see the dawn approach?
or see the fire in the sky?
Now the closing chapter of humanity,
the inevitable fate of mankind
Can you still believe in hope
on this darkest day you have known?
Will you still thank your precious god
or have the seeds of doubt been sown?
Will you admire the landscape
of broken bodies, of fallen men?
will you know the falling rain
as it burns onto your skin?
Devastation – untold
Pain and misery
the dying breath of hope
war-torn and bleeding…
Will you attempt in vain
to wash the bloodstains from your hands?
will you stop to lament the lost
their lives offered in your name?
Like a statue will you stand and stare
as though a cenotaph of despair
an inscription no-one will read
in this your final hour of need…
