Silence by CalamityChemist Silence by CalamityChemist
To the screaming rabbit
Or stricken deer
Kind death on silent feet draws near.

--
Iíve always liked the concept of a Ďgrim reaperí for the animals; some eerie-but-kind being that comes to spirit them away as they die. I enjoyed painting this--itís a mishmash of some of the animals from the mountains that I love, the Tetons.

And, it's spooky, so a happy almost-Halloween to all of you charming people. I hope you enjoy the art! ♥

...........this inspires me now to write a video game where you are an Anima living in a forest trying to escape the Anima Reaper....or something folk-lore haunted like such...

I just love how fine and detailed everything looks in this piece. Especially on the hair/fur part.
Great concept as well and you've certainly managed to create the right atmosphere in this one. :D
