What is the meaning of life? by autumnicity What is the meaning of life? by autumnicity
[ general anxiety of the existential variety ]

Some inktober work between midterms in hopes of de-stressing.

I am quite fond of the idea... The fact that it's made with ink is a a bonus. Although i lack the skill with an ink pen since im more into digital painting, I can tell it wasn't an easy task
There is one thing that needs to be adressed and that's the inconsistent lighting . It appears that cast shadows are not following the same path (see collar bones and the fore arms). But over all a good deviation, the contrast between the foreground and background really makes the character pop out. And the palms infront of the skeletons head make the overall a bit earie. Good job :)
What do you think?

I like the detailing in this one. Despite of being a skeleton, for some reason it does not make me associate it with death, but a character in general going through an emotion. I also like the use of constellations in the background. Some say the future is written in the stars and come to think of it, midterms might be one time when the writing may become a bit clearer.

Talking about characters, seeing how you have made also other pictures with a skeleton in them, looks like you do or might have a character-thing going on. Meaning, something personal and recognizable for your works in particular. Can't be a bad thing. :)

I enjoy the hatching on the skeleton, the use of dark and light. It's well-proportioned and the composition of the piece seems thought out.  The contrast between the detailed skeleton and the relatively simple background works well.

I think the same thing on a reagular basis.

Also that's some fantastic pen work work on the skeleton. Great use of hatching.

A question made all the more profound by the fact it's being asked by a skeleton.
