Waltz for Calliope
It always struck me how different alt!Calliope was from her friendly, happy-go-lucky counterpart—she almost seemed like a different character. Alt!Calliope had given up on ever feeling happy or fulfilled. She only had a single solitary purpose left to her: to die. I wrote this song as a melancholy elegy for a lost soul.
A representation of alternate Calliope's journey to achieve her ultimate goal.
I love dealing with dark foreground figures against bright backgrounds, so this was fun to add the final touches to. I got a sense of what Quietserval was going for this drawing from talking to them, and tried to realise that in its fullest.
