Do you need some time...on your own
Do you need some time...all alone
Everybody needs some time...on their own
Don't you know you need some time...all alone
I know it's hard to keep an open heart
When even friends seem out to harm you
But if you could heal a broken heart
Wouldn't time be out to charm you

- Guns'n'Roses, November Rain


I did this render earlier this summer (one of the few rare ones I had time for), for a couple of my roleplaying gamer friends I was involved with. Some events had recently transpired causing some issues within the group resulting in trust and friendship being questioned. Thus indecision whether to stay or leave or what.

My character felt estranged, empty inside with only large dark clouds hanging about, she was ready to just hang her head in giving up and leave, maybe temporarily or permanently, she didn't know. Thus this picture portrays her thinking it best if she just went away for a while, go Walkabout in essence, leaving several personal items behind - crafted weapons gifted to her which she wouldn't be needing anymore, her group badge, including a group photo of her and her 2 friends.

The issues were resolved, and no-one left to go their separate ways, and friendships amended. But its still something I had felt I had to render, personifying what she felt inside.

Walkabout: The character Dr. Ben Franklin from Babylon 5 best explained it, having said its an Aborigine term: When you have seem to lost / missing a part of yourself, you go for a walk. And you keep walking until you meet up with yourself. Then you sit down and have a talk with him.
