Okay, so everyone has seen Silver, back in my gallery, right? What, you haven't? Well go look. Its just a scetch, but anyways.
This is Gold, Silver's second form, and also the form it is most difficult for her to transform into/hold. If you will notice the rip in her clothing in the chest region, that is where she has been stabbed in the heart. To transform into Gold, Silver must keep her heart pure, and be fatally wounded. The energy required to maintain this form is usually very draining, especially inside The Edge, Silver's current home (and the place seen in this picture.)
As you can hopefully tell, the light that comes off of Gold is so strong that even the sun pales in comparison (not that it is very strong in The Edge in the first place, but anyways.) Silver is not the only entity to transform; her two sentient short swords, Tsume and Kori fuse to form Tsuko, the Sword of Souls.
I created this picture using a large variety of instruments. Gold was scetched entirely with a .7 lead mechanical pencil, then filled with colored pencil. The handle of Tsuko as well as other accents in the piece were colored with magic markers. The shadow highlighted rocks were once again done with pencil, though this one was a regular lead and not mechanical. The sun was colored with chalk to give it that dampened look.
Overall I am very happy with this piece, which is rare. I didn't even change anything on the computer, probably a first for me. I realise that her shoulders are a little bit off, as well as the left hand (in her lap), but I am still pretty happy with this one.
