There was nothing but darkness and endless night. Small stars watched from distant skies, relentlessy casting their light over ice covered wastes devoid of any life.

She had retreated to this room, chained herself to barren walls of distant memories, now grown hard as stone. They had been repeated so many times, nothing that was left to bask her soul. Not even a glimpse of red hot summer skies or the churning heat of a passionate lovers touch.

No plans for a life or a future among human beeings. What could they give other than misery, disapointment and false promises. Better to give in to the cold, to escape the cycle of endlessly spinning pain.

Bone chilling coldness, once shunned, now welcomed like the hand of a caring mother. It wont be long until the snow would cover it all, casting a blanket of white oblivion.

A promise of release from the circles of a merciless world. A way beyond that churning winternight. A step of hope ...

First rate art, but unrealistic.  When it is that cold the prisoner could literally freeze to death.  Her value in the slave market would be greatly reduced if her ears had to be amputated for frostbite.

Someone give her a blanket! But how can she be so healthy? Anyone would die quite fast in those conditions.

Nice emotion in this one. Despair, grim and blue, floods the image and her face. Nicely done! =)

Normally black is the chosen colour of despair but in this case the frozen scene is mauch better expressed in blue.

I agree completely. That blue has a lot of black and gray in it, so it works very well. :nod:

A Pitchblack worthy piece of High End 3D craftsmanship.
And a fetching small story to give the viewer some shivers down his spines.

The fitting image for the longest night of the year.
