When they first started growing right there beneath my spine, my body didn't hurt that bad. I allowed them to live there on my back because they told me they had nowhere else to go. Plus, I was still able to guard the castle, protecting the Frost Queen. The more they replicated, however, the harder it was to do my job. But...if I evicted them from my body, I fear they wouldn't survive on their own. I have now vowed to protect both the Queen and the blight, but I fear I may have made the wrong decision.A mixture of traditional inks with digital coloring and effects in Procreate and Adobe Premiere.Created by Alex Pardee2020This is a one-of-a-kind GOLD edition variant Alex Pardee's "THE BURDEN".
