Southern00Belle: Turning Lady 3 by That-Poor-Tyrant Southern00Belle: Turning Lady 3 by That-Poor-Tyrant
Turning Lady 3, for Southern00Belle.

Alright, justification: This one was really difficult, so I tried to make an image based on her lyrics ("Someone used to cradle them and kiss them when they cried........Where's that new world now the fighting's done?"). The center is a pieta-type image, to fit the maternal imagery, also mixed with the idea from the book that the Republic is the mother, and inspired by such works as Honoré Daumier's "Republic". I tried to include the actual 'turning women' as well.

So, I hope it's ok, and I hope you like it.

This is beautifully done!
Not only the use of black and white, but also the classic influences you used: like the pieta-pose and such.

Oh man! I'm sorry, but this is turning lady number FIVE, but you were SO close!

That aside, it's still very good. Much thanks. :3

Er, kind of a funny thing though....I personally have a really, /really/ strong dislike for Turning. I can't help but feel that it is extremely misleading and overly melodramatic. Ah well...

I used to dislike Turning a lot before seeing the ĹST production. There the ladies take the bodies away from the barricade during that (they stay there all the time in between Final Battle and Turning), so it has some point. Still not a huge favourite of mine, but for once it has some reason to be there!
