Wake Up, Dead Boy by VanHeist Wake Up, Dead Boy by VanHeist
this started as a warm-up sketch but kind of turned into something better. Partially inspired by Nightwish's "Last Ride of the Day": [link] (somehow Anette Olzon has indelibly become Didi's voice in my head...)

shoot, i thought i had more to say but i'm kinda befuddled. Anyway, enjoy! More adventures ahead :)

I went to a Nightwish concert some weeks ago, and when they played Last Ride of the Day I immediately thought of this picture and of Didi. Had a good laugh about it during the show.

What a coincidence; that's pretty much what I imagined Didi's voice sounding like...

This reminds me of the scene in Sinbad: Legend of the 7 seas where Sinbad meets the goddess Eris for the first time... (Watch the movie if you haven't before! It's great!) She plucks him out of the water and brings him up to meet her. XD

Now just imagine Didi having Michelle Phiffer's voice (Eris' voice) as well.

Didi with the voice of Anette Olzon...hm, she's no Tarja but she's good in her own right.

:iconvanheist:
VanHeist Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2012
I like them both as singers...Tarja has a much more operatic, soaring voice (with amazing range), but Anette's got a lovely, girlish tone that (to me) fits Didi.

Strolled trough the gallery, saw this, thought: "hey, I haven't seen this one before", looked down at the title, recognised the line, sang out the following one, clicked to see I was right, laughed.

Great pic. Love Andy's scarred/confused look and Didi's wicked yet loving smile.

There's probably no need to know - there's not much to art if the artist is going to go around explaining every single thing happening in their work.

And sometimes it's better leaving it open for people to interpret or come up with theories to. In this picture I think whatshisname is having one hell of a goodbad dream given his relationship with GoGo.

Back on my previous point, imagine a gorgeous woman walking around explaining to everyone that their low-cut, form fitting dress is supposed to draw attention to her ample-bosom and cleavage and fitting the contours of their body, showing her curves, showing off her body to make her more alluring. Her sexy would drop by 90% because she had to go around explaining it to everyone.

Some things gotta be experienced, not explained!

But that means I have to think and stuff D: Or at least use my brain! I'm at work! And it's not daylight yet! I can't use my brain while at work AND when it's night time! (Well technically it's just very very early in the morning...)

Frickin YES. As soon as I saw the title I thought "Nightwish" and you did not disappoint good sir!

I love the lighting on this one, Didi's gotten a whole "menacing" vibe going on.

I'd be working around the clock if i drew everything Nightwish inspires...so i'll be working around the clock, i guess, hehe

i dunno about "menacing"...even here, i just picture her saying "Hi Andy! How was your day?" ^^;

All the Bomangos get on the giantess thing sooner or later. THIS BE AWESOME, YO.

Didi also looks a great deal more confident than she ever has before, excepting that one series of Bomango dudettes in the future and that was CRAZY AWESOME ONE OF THE BEST THINGS EVER but that's besides the point.

MORE AU GOODNESS IS AWESOME. YOU REMAIN AWESOME FOREVER.

Duno why but this one kinda reminds me of Bioshock. Must be Andy's outfit, and I can see Didi splicing someones DNA to give the power to hurl bolts of lightning. Its Ether that or that old Sinbad movie by Disney, when the Chaos goddess was watching Sinbad kinda like how Didi is watching Andy
