Remembrance Day by AkuAoiOni Remembrance Day by AkuAoiOni
"They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
"

Laurence Binyon's poem For the Fallen, written September 1914.

That poem you quoted gave me a nice idea for an image too, btw I like your shading and the way you faded into the white ^^

Bagriel is really surprising me here. D8

Aku, this picture is beautiful. The gentleness of his hands and his expression, the colors, the shine, and the clothing.. they all convey this mourning, almost silent awe and practically reverence (maybe I am looking too much into it but that's the jumble of emotions I felt when I saw this). It really is a very touching piece, and not a single word was needed to convey any emotion at all. This picture really is quite perfect.

And I do adore Bagriel so. <3

skdjvdffgb I'm glad you can read so much into this. ;3; I worked pretty hard to get some sort of ethereal feel. I figured Bagriel was the best for this occasion since he's probably the EP best associated with death~ And he's a military man, after all.

Thank you, Aya~ He loves you in his own way. XD <3
