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

I love the shade of blue of the dress~ the whole picture gives a feeling of calmness and light. Her face and pose are lovely, too. I like the non-complete shading, as well ^^ ( Oh, how I wish I could have a very very old book like that ;__; I know of stores that restore such old books, but they won't sell them... they give them to art collectors or museums to display .__. )

Thank you ^_^ I don't know where you live, but in Europe old books are easier to buy than in the US (I think). But in the USA, you still can find them on ebay! :)
