We're hurrying through the days,
Always going somewhere
In a rush to get doing something else
And all that is left for us
is No Time
I thought I wouldn't have done this pic yet, though I've had the idea for this for a while. The title "No Time" of course inspired me to do a pic of Arcaillax, the Protector of the Phoenix Clock, thus the title doesn't really have anything in common with her. If there's something that Arcaillax has, it's time... It's more just symbolism, the
clock/locket symboling time, and the white phoenix bird symboling hope and light. There's hope that someday we all would have time, time for our loved ones, time for the things we enjoy, and most important, time for ourselves.
The spacy background... It's just because if thinking about a place where time doesn't matter, it's probably space.
Space is old, everything comes and goes, has their time until their time comes to it's end (and, I just love all kind of space-pics, but I've never done one myself). Another choice for the background could have been a black hole, which definetely DOESN'T 'have time'... But it's a bit tricky to start drawing a black hole.
But why I decided to do this now, anyway? I've felt absolutely worthless after screwing up my entrance exams for one school, and those works we had to do weren't even hard to be done! I felt so useless and I hated myself because of it, so I decided to show the world I CAN do something... Or more than to show the world, I wanted to show myself
that I can... I tried to prove myself I'm not just a failurer... And I really hope I'm not... Thus, Arc's legs and wings look like crap.
Even if I would have failed those exams, there's always tomorrow, and tomorrow brings new chances for every of us. It brings new chances for me, too, and I won't give up yet

Arcaillax & art (c) Note: I changed my phoenixes' desings a bit by adding fluffy-looking decorative tail feathers for them, instead of
those plain strings with the feathery end in them. From the start those feathers were supposed to do to look like that,
but I thought they would be hard to do, unless I HAD to do something like that in my art trade work for Konsi. As
Charisma has two fluffy decorative feathers in her crest, I had a chance to notice that they're not so hard to do after all
-And it seems that Arcaillax started taking karate-lesson or something...
