What does cold feel like? by DestinyBlue What does cold feel like? by DestinyBlue

A doll stands in the snow and wonders what the cold feels like.

She's never hungry, never thirsty, never ill, always pristine, always beautiful... but would give all these up to feel the cold.. to feel human.

Just a conceptual sketch I finished off, I started it in the airport in Ireland; coming home from Eirtakon I was dropped off at the airport at 4:30am, it was dark, freezing and raining heavily, worst part was I was taken to the wrong terminal so had to drag my bags round to the other entrance. I though 'what a rubbish way to end a great weekend' then I looked around. In the darkness all the lights of the airport were bright, the heavy rain made them sparkle, and the whole world was dazzlingly reflected in the river which was once the road. It was beautiful. I took a deep breath of fresh, cold air and couldn't help but smile.
Often the things we think are negative can be viewed in a different light if you are prepared to look... cold, sad, hurt might feel bad at the time, but they turn to warm, happy and healed. The doll would do anything to feel them all. Embrace the dark as well as the light.

I hope it's okay--I have used this picture with an edit for the cover of a short story of mine. You are credited, of course. I will send you the link ASAP--it's called "Real" and this is the perfect picture for it. I love your art!!!
