Once Upon a December by Allendra3 Once Upon a December by Allendra3
Far away, long ago
Glowing dim as an ember
Things my heart used to know
Things it yearns to remember
And a song someone sings
Once upon a December
---Once Upon a December from the movie Anastasia


I saw a video on YouTube featuring Jack Frost with this song playing. I know I watched Anastasia when I was little, but never since then, so it was like hearing this song for the first time. I was taken by how darkly beautiful it was, and this art is a product of that. :)

Never done something this complicated before, but I'm very pleased with the result.

Thanks to *redheadstock for the frost brushes.

I hope there will be more films in due course. Dreamworks seems to be putting all their love into the Train Your Dragon series at the moment.

The song fits for Jack since he couldn't remember his past, plus, he died in winter.
