This was inspired by depression and the effect it has on people, its a subject thats very close to my heart and i feel very passionate about it. So i created this image almost to try and explain depression to someone who's never experienced it or can not understand the effects it has on people.

Hey, so hello. Yeah, i've never been diagnosed with this affliction, but I saw this piece on boredpanda.com and totally fell in love with it. I do a lot of stuff in a semi-simmilar way, leaving purposeful blank space and paint drips. love the watercolor too! really really nice, tbh I literally made a diviantart account so that i could make this comment. You really impacted me today with this piece, so, thank you :)

Powerful and so soul-crushing. This is easily the most raw depiction of Depression I think I have ever seen in a while.

what a powerful work of art. this brings up a lot of bad memories for me....but thats a good thing because if someone who has delt with depression before can feel such a connection to this piece, hopefully someone who is ignorant to this affliction or who has unfair prejudices about depressed people may learn something from observing this :) thank you for this painting and may many smiles and happy eyes be present in your life!
