SW - I am a rock by Renny08 SW - I am a rock by Renny08
A winter's day
In a deep and dark December
I am alone
Gazing from my window
To the streets below
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow
I am a rock
I am an island
I've built walls
A fortress deep and mighty
That none may penetrate
I have no need for friendship
Friendship causes pain
It's laughter and it's loving I disdain.
I am a rock
I am an island
Don't talk of love
Well, I've heard the word before
It's sleeping in my memory
I won't disturb the slumber
Of feelings that have died
If I'd never loved,
I never would have cried
I am a rock
I am an island
I have my books
And my poetry to protect me
I am shielded in my armor
Hiding in my room
Safe within my womb
I touch no-one and no-one touches me
I am a rock
I am an island

And the rock feels no pain
And an island never cries

I Am a Rock, Simon & Garfunkel

As soon as I've heard this song I thought it fits Anakin just PERFECTLY!!! Well...actually, if fits Darth Vader the most, but if I drew him I couldn't have drawn his expression...haha!

And beside, in this drawing Ani is already Vader, so yeah u__u
It's inspired by the scene right after he has killed the Separatists leaders, and he's watching Mustafar... I wanted to give a feeling of abandonment, or something like that xD that's why I drew him leaned on the column, like he's just tired of everything.

The song pretty much sums up what he's thinking, and I hope his expression conveys those feelings pretty well :)
Oh, and maybe it isn't clearly visible, but yeah, he has yellow eyes, to further show that he's totally Dark Side now :>

And for once I think I did a good background!
The whole thing is nothing pretentious, but it was a good practice.

Now I'm so sleepy! D:
I hope you enjoy it :D

I love that song! I never put it with Anakin, but now it makes a ton of sense for him.
