Come, shadow of my end, and shape of rest,
Allied to Death, child to his black-fac'd Night:
Come, thou, and charm these rebels in my breast,
Whose waking fancies do my mind affright.
O come, sweet Sleep, come or I die for ever;
Come ere my last sleep comes, or come thou never.


From: Sting: Songs from the Labyrinth
(John Dowland, First Booke of Songes, 1597)

That guy's songs are really inspiring.

Procedure: Scanned in a piece of 250 year old paper, opened it in Photoshop and drew on top of it. Simple as that =D

Has an almost PreRaphaelite feel to it. Magical!

This is a glorious piece, one of my favorites from your gallery. The composition is wonderful, and I love the angles and negative spaces you've created. The textures are fantastic, too! :love::+fav:

John Dowland is wonderful. I also love Stings interpretations (and have sung some myself). Your illustration captures well the atmosphere and emotions that come with the song you mentioned.
