Dead Man Walking by AlexLibby Dead Man Walking by AlexLibby
When your lungs collapse, when your last breath fails,
Upon reflection the fatal choice was yours alone....
As panic grips your nerves....
Suffocation overrides the persistent beat of life


About this image;
Another desktop for someone on the forum
I LOVE the way this came out so much, don't you love it when an image comes out exactly how you imagined it? I wanted this and it came out like i wanted. I'm so happy. It's dark but light at the same time. Just in totaly love with the outcome. Even the mane and tail, the marking [which was a random last minute choice] and just everything, i'm very happy with it
Oh ya new best friend added to the list - liquify tool, helped me make him sickly thin haha
Anyways the title comes from what lyrics she requested from a song called Dead Man's Chest which i picked bits and pieces from
I removed the lyrics on the image for the DA version, but i did send her a version with the lyrics on the actual image.
I think i'm going to do that from now on ^_^
so anyways i hope you enjoy this Tay!

Credits;
Horse: Loosends-stock
Background: stock-feele
Bones: Salsolastock

Extra Help:Cowsandwatermelons both of the recoloring tutorials helped me alot with recoloring the horse, especially his white marking ^_^


ONLY FOR USE OF TAYLA ON THE FORUM, NO USE OTHERWISE OR FEAR MY WRATH

Awesome!! Anatomy is great! Love seeing some zombie animals. Wonder if an herbivore like a horse would be driven to eat flesh? Hmm! :)

oh my gosh! how could I have forgotten this?! Ever since my idiot sister stuffed my computer up, we had to get it fixed and all of the photos were deleted!
AHHH I CAN HAVE IT BACK! haha.
I'm going to have to raid my pm's on the forum to find the version with lyrics!
Still can't get over how amazing itlooks, it's amazing after all of this time. Exactly how I pictured it. Beautiful.
