Wow. A Sci-fi drawing! I never draw Sci-fi. ^__^
This drawing was inspired by the beautiful song "Lux Aeterna" by Clint Mansell. However, when I listened to this song, instead of 'seeing' Light I saw only horrible darkness. So, I named the drawing Tenebra Aeterna.

Tenebra Aeterna by *arkoniel - I can hear the screams, that's how powerful this artwork is. ( Featured by OneFreeInternet )

Wonderful :) you should listen to the song "Behold the Darkness" , by Medwyn Goodall, to me it seems like Lux Aeterna's opposite. Lux Aeterna has a sense of hope and peace, though I do see how you could see darkness in it as well. Behold The Darkness has an eerie, dark, morbid sense to it, it can be very inspiring.

I so agree with your inspiration here; that music feels like darkness to me too, and I think you illustrated this quite well.
