Mouthful Of Razors by Autlaw Mouthful Of Razors by Autlaw



Face down on the pavement, throat down to the floor.
This blood shed beside me, now you feel your fate in my words.
Every breath left inside me, pierced quick with my tongue.
Live with all your failures, listen to my mouthful of razors!

Reality, is the blade, that cuts you deeper than the thorns you've placed on me,
all these blades, scream as you lash your tongue at me.

Sew your mouth up, keep it sealed shut, there's blood on the floor,
everybody's watching, shut up, choke on, this mess you've made with your words of hate!


Memory of a melody - Mouthful Of Razors


Video of the process on my Youtube
www.youtube.com/watch?v=OUlAkd…

A personal drawing,
and lots of personal symbolism here.

I actually think it's really good. I just don't understand why he's wearing and biting down on blades.

The meaning can be found in the lyrics by Memory of a Melody - Mouthful of razors, it's symbolic : P The lyrics might explain a lot as of why I drew Shinri this way.

I've actually never gotten into anime. I kinda just posted my comment as a joke. I still think the picture's cool.

Everything needs practise though. I didn't start out being super good either when I first drew something with my tablet :,D I was goddamn awful myself XD But practice and hard work makes perfect I think :>

I've always wanted to draw like this but sadly, my clumsy fingers do not allow this ;-;. But this is just absolutely Llama Emoji-78 (Clapping) [V4]  and I watched the video for it, it tells such a great story in my mind. A story of heartbreak (well..>~>) and pure anger that were perfectly portrayed into this bootiful blob of art. You did an awesome job Autlaw <3 I hope you continue drawing because I just love seeing all of them!

Ahw thanks a lot <3 ! 

I'm glad the drawing evokes a lot of emotions, I tried to somehow keep it kinda open though as the drawing was born out many mixed emotions as well :)

I have no words. It is rarely that the image gives me urge to comment let alone read the description and this did both U_U
Kinda harsh symbolism here and there but I love it like that. i Hope it will be okay. everything that I don't know about, not that those things even belong for others to know.

And you do not have to reply on this, so do not push yourself if it don't feel like it.

Nah I'm going to reply anyway here hah. I'm feeling slightly more at ease with replying here these days. I guess it just needed some time :,)  

Thanks for taking your time to leave a reply. I'm still grateful for them, in all honesty <,3 
Yeah I've always been more a fan of raw emotions in drawings, I never liked "beating around the bush" too much when it comes to showing emotions in drawings. Glad you like it though ! (:

Ah I'm slowly getting back some of my guts I guess. I'm sure this storm will pass someday, even if it takes a long time.

Wow, beautiful, but scary at the same time. <3 And by scary I mean, you can feel the emotions that were being interpreted on the drawing and it's just woow, I love it. I also love how realistic this is, the sound of something scratching against a metal irks me so much that my teeth feel uncomfortable(sounds weird yes) and that's exactly the feeling I get when I see that claw against the razor and the way you added detail there. Just overally great <3

I hope you'll be ok, and that everything will calm down and make a turn for the better for you. <3
