My fear takes hold, I flow onto the mold
Sinful souls, dark with fire
Burn freeze cold with desire
Heavens start to cry
Crawl for me, beg for me
To hear your cries
Why it seems like a life that dies ?

It's Jared. Anyone who'se been watching me for many years remember this ugly bastard?

I dunno what came over me to draw him, but it struck and I obey. His story in my head has changed a lot, as I gave it up years ago to pursue my fantasy story, but since my inspiration for that has slowed down a bit, I 've been thinking about other things. It's gotten a lot more macabre and kind of fucking creepy (to me, since I'm the one that has to deal with this shit in my head!) and going places I didn't think it would ever go years ago.

Maybe I'll give the story another try.

Kind of inspired by =Twelfth, and I've been wanting to work on using more subtle colors.

Pencil and inkwash mostly, with a bit of Photoshop. MUST DO MOAR INKWASH!!! I love how this turned out!

Wow, I am impressed. I love it. It screams at me to continue working on my story. Unfortunately, the inspiration for that has finally stopped after, what, five years? And now the muse that hangs over my head is giving me even more story ideas that I don't even need or want. The newest one in my head will now make it eighty two stories rambling around inside my head. How do you cope with the madness? Because they took me off my medication...

Creepy shit in your head and strange men possessing your pencil.
I know exactly what you mean.

This is... just wow. Gorgeous, emotional, gripping. I cant find the word. This manages to tell a story without words and to force one to evoke their thought creating machine that commonly goes unused anyway.

Im sorry. I kind of knew what I was saying, but lost it. But Im leaving the ramble there because... well because.

ANYWOOZLE. I love this. :D
