I see a lot of pain and fear, but also love and compassion. It is a stunning and mesmerising piece of work, and looking at his expression, makes me feel quite sad for him.

Rich texture, evocative concept, emotion caught in the act. I so enjoy a piece that makes me just want to stare and come up with stories to explain what I see happening. *staring*

Wow..there is great emotion represented here! 

It's looks like he's about to cry...and that he's starting to realize that he did a terrible thing...being under that evil spirit's control... 
Or that could be the spirit of the person he killed, that has already forgiven him and is now trying to comfort him (she has her arm on his heart too) XD

It's a wonderful painting! Bravo!

I cant belive how well you draw faces, this piece is absolutely stunning, and the contrast with the bright shirt just makes it so good. And then on top of that it's all traditional which is even more impressing. I need me a print of this sir!
