Is this a nightmare?
Or.. or.. is my grip on reality starting to slip?
After almost 3 months of chipping away at this.. it's done. Most of it was done in April, but it's taken a lot of detail to get it to the point I was happy enough to share.
If anybody shows interest (guess I'll know if anyone reads the artist description after more than 5 words) I can put up an un-barred view of the mirror, which IS fully-painted behind the 'real' Adair standing in front. But I'm not going to bother if there's no call for it.
You all know Adair at this point. Since Adair's roleplay ceased, I started re-imagining him as I would if I'd designed him now vs. several plus years earlier. Nothing is concrete in my concepts, but one thing does remain steadfast: his fractured mind is just as if not more dangerous than the people he tries to distance himself from. If his sharp mind begins to lose sight, and reality begins to blur with what's in the reflection.. he knows that will be the nail in his coffin.
I would still very much like to do a proper story with him, but I'm not rushing it.
I realized months ago that I hadn't done a good horror-themed painting in a while..
You may guess where inspiration was drawn from if you've played one of my favourite games.
The feeling behind this one really changed from the first concept: Concept - 'run'
