Only the Beginning... by DolphyDolphiana Only the Beginning... by DolphyDolphiana
"Death is only the Beginning..."

Wanted to illustrate that peaceful, beautiful and warm feeling people described in near-death experiences. When they suddenly only felt love and peace and that famous white light.
There's some place much better out there, I am convinced.


Photoshop 7.0.

this reminds me of that scene in Lion King when after Simba defeats scar, he climbs up Pride Rock and they all start roaring.

If I could favorite all of your art twenty times, I would. Your work is incredible and it's artists like you that inspire me to do my best. I hope that when I get some of my own art work on here, that you will check it out and give me some critiques.
I would mean the world to me.

This is cool.

Granted this is a year old, but it reminds me of an episode of Criminal Minds and what Reid saw/felt when he 'died' at the hands of Tobias Hankel. Prentiss died and felt coldness.

But other than that odd comparison (sorry :( ) this is very well done.

This is very beautiful. ANd, that peace and love that people feel, in near death experiences is God. You know, I was watching a TV episode about near death experiences, and 2 of the 3 people saw light, fealt love and peace, and the third person, went to a darkness, and saw her grandmother. Makes you wonder. I think Satan was tricking her.

This is beautiful. The title makes me think of a quote from Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. It's when Pippin is talking to Gandalf about death and gandalf says, "The end? No, Pippin. Death is just another path. One we all must take."

This is what inspires you to do stuff..the stuff you believe in..Your way of depicting it..is something of true talent. I would have not done it any other better way.

You are a true Artist Dolphy, don't ever let it go C:
