Purgatory by MarioWibisono Purgatory by MarioWibisono
My soul shall purge
All sins shall perish


--------


Way of the sword has made it's bearer must face the trial of sins before entering Heaven. That courtplace is Meido, the gate before Heaven or also known as purgatory. The trial will count the balance of a person's karma in life. If the balance shows that good karma is dominant, she is cleansed from sins and may enter the Heaven, but if the weight of bad karma falls heavy, that person is required to face the testament to purge the soul before continuing with the next life cycle.

A piece from the art collection 'The Fall of Destinies'.

It is really amazing how realistic this drawing is, i could imagin running into someone who looks like that in real life, it's just soooo realistic!
The anatomy is perfectly flawless! Her hair fits the looks of her and remind me of the japanese style female warrior, along with the katana afcourse.
The red flowing blood effect make it seem like this scene is underwater.
The flowing pink like though make it seem like some sort of spiritual appearance.
The background also really fits with the picture because it makes her stand out and red also works really nide with her black hair, eyes and black bands around her hand and arm.
I'm am simply stunned by this amazing work! It is beautifull and soft yet violent and brutal. Perfect drawing. 4×5 stars!

I'M LIKE, YOUR BIGGEST FAN EVER, FIRST OF ALL. XD
Second of all, this one is AMAZING. I love how much emotion there is in this single picture. When you read the story, you can literally visualize her, kneeling at the gates of Purgatory, being cleansed of her sins.

Amazing.

Simply. Amazing.

This happens to be one of my favourite images online and offline! I have never seen such a detailed and beautiful piece of art that has made me want it everywhere around me. In fact, before I knew this to be your image, I had discoloured it and edited it to fit my avatar almost everywhere. (I hope you don't mind that, it is credited everywhere as edited from an original image: Purgatory).

I just bought this puzzle today, I had no idea you do Educa puzzles! Thank you for making my day! (And if you do more, please do warrior men, there are more than enough of gothic women in puzzles) Now I'm going to go hound Educa's website to see if there's more of your works :heart:
