The Dark of Ages Past by JazzySatinDoll The Dark of Ages Past by JazzySatinDoll
"Mothers weep from sleepless beds infinite and inconsolable.
Sulfur blue sunrises immeasurable and empty, hanging resplendent
Over fathomless oceans shrouded in noises, spirits,
Filled with nothing; the stuff of legends."

I wanted Enjolras in this portrait to represent the ephemeral glory of dying in battle.

3.5 hr digital portrait to the tune of “Spiegel im Spiegel” by Arvo Part

-EDIT-
Just spent about half an hour trawling the Enjolras tag on Tumblr to re-find my reference. Not that I'm complaining...

Ohhh, Enjolras. This is beautiful. And it's making me sad. But in a good way. The characters in Les Mis always do that to me, haha. Anyway, beautifully drawn!! :D

Haha I'm so glad you approve! He's definitely my favourite character from the book and also the musical.
I'm just glad they got someone competent to play him in the movie!

Thank you so much! :D I always try to stick some character in there... so I hope it's not too "photographic"...

And you just reminded me that I forgot to post my reference so thank you again!
