Depression

Part 1 in a series called My Empire.
Why am I making this series and sharing it with the world? Because there is something great in reaching out. Someone somewhere feels less alone when finding that they can relate to something. Mental illness can feel extremely isolating.

Great depiction of what it feels like to have depression; so impossible to describe it to those that have never experienced it.  Keep making art!

I really hope you're feeling better now. Been there, I know the feeling :huggle: Beautiful work, perfectly balanced and chaotic at the same time.

The way the face fractures is so natural and beautiful - this is a really lovely traditional piece...
the use of color here is really powerful, thank you so much for sharing this...

This is beautiful as you can tell a lot by using few elements, the pictures tells a story by itself and communicates its mood to the viewer instantly.

I feel you.  Depression like cancer is a plague of our society.

yeah its a mental state when "you want to die because nobody loves you" its very self destructive and I don't recommend for weak people, you start trembling afraid of yourself after some time, but its not the worst thing ever or anything like that, it helps you improve yourself a lot, if you feel this way always remember "you worth more", its always the first tip, its true, at least I want to believe that

this is sooo cool!
There's no more moving metaphor in art than the juxtaposition of beauty and decay. It's what we are. It's why art is. You capture it so beautifully. Thank you from the bottom of my decaying
heart.

I really liked the drawing, it shows very well the sadness of who has this disease, I know how it is, can I use it as a tattoo?

The emotion is clear, and not just in the down cast eyes. She is divided and crumbling. Still together, and yet...slowly splitting in all directions.
I love this piece. I look forward to more pieces from you. Thank you for sharing.
