In Ink: Emilie Autumn by Opal-Heart126 In Ink: Emilie Autumn by Opal-Heart126
"4 o'Clock
4 o'Clock
Out of bed I creep
To climb this tower of shame
But the hour's still the same
Only madness knows my name
At 4 o'Clock.....

So I've mentioned it before, but I really like Emilie Autumn's music. I also admire her strength and her fashion sense, finding her all around inspiring.

Because of that, I decided to do a portrait of her, which then became an ink work. I think the use of lines and the kind of scattered scribbling to make up the shading works well with the premise of the work. I can honestly say that right now this is my favorite piece and I may do more ink drawings down the line.

Lyrics to "Four o'clock" ---> Emilie Autumn

Emilie Autumn is one of my faaaaves! I fell out of the gothloli fandom years ago, the only remnants of it being my adoration for alice in wonderland stories and terrible stories of victorian giurl's schools and asylums, but Autumn's music and story really struck a chord with me and kept me into it for a few more years. :3 She really in an inspirational person.

Your ink work is super pretty, from the thumbnail it looked like you were using negative space, but the line work looks reeally solid, and I love how her shoulder looks!

Thank you!! I really admire Emilie Autumn, and she actually inspired my English paper thesis for this year (research though.... eww.... >_< ) on Victorian asylums and their part in keeping women boxed into the social norms of the time...
This is awesome, Sha!! :la: :heart:
