it's very beautiful and a little tragic for that arrow in its chest, but all the pice is wonderful!

thankyou - but it was a request by ~ShadowedAcolyte to go with a piece of his poetry - so the arrow is relevant to that

this is so beautiful!

I'd call it corny if it wasn't for the deer to be shot which gives the pic a bit of a tragic shade in contrast to the shiny gold colors :aww:

great job!! :clap:

thankyou for the compliment - its based on a piece of poetry hence the relevance of the stag or hart being shot

Awesome! I love how the arrow doesn't really stand out from the moon, so a first glance everything looks fine...then you see the blood and are confused and then you see the arrow and realize what's happening.

It's an interesting sort of visual journey.

Thanks so much for this. I love it!

you are most welcome - well the poem speaks a lot of the colours so i thought i would try stick to a minimalistic colour set for this and yes the arrow is quite subtle - hence i added that patch of red to highlight it - yes the overall picture is almost gilt but yes there is that tragic element in it also - very much like the poem

Definitely. The two go together well.
