Everything is quiet...

Everything has a price, the book said. To summon a guide, you must pay in blood. Here, it was quite specific. 'Draw a blade across your palm and allow the blood to fall on a mound of salt.'

As she raised the knife, the birds went quiet and the sound of insects stopped. All she could hear as she drew the blade across her skin was her heartbeat...

This is my first Pixelween 2020 entry, although I have done a complementary 'piece 0' that shows one of the opening shots of my imaginary film.

The overall concept I've come up with is partly inspired by the 2009 album Embryonic by The Flaming Lips. This piece draws inspiration from the films of Dario Argento; particularly Inferno, although Suspiria is my favourite of his.

The wallpaper is based on this reference image.
