My Anger's Share - Coloured! by Matakoura My Anger's Share - Coloured! by Matakoura
Okay, the title could use some work, but it was 11 pm and I had run out of energy. Anyway, as you can probably tell, this is the coloured version of .

I'll be honest, I had way too much fun with this.....I LOVE over the top and slightly psychotic colours! So much fun. :) There will be more like this, I promise. :D

The title was inspired by the poem 'On another's sorrow' by William Blake. 

"...Can I see a falling tear,
And not feel my sorrow's share?
Can a father see his child
Weep, nor be with sorrow filled.."

This is a mythological creature from the culture of a race I have created, the SiciNas. It is known as a Vasalkka. This creature is a ghost or type of undead that is created by all the helpless anger people feel. She looks like a living child, except that all the flesh is rotted on her torso, and instead of a heart her ribcage is full of carnivorous glow worms. She is found in places that have witnessed great injustices, with her knees drawn up to hide her chest and her hair hanging over her face. Every Vasalkka looks as though they have had their claws removed, a great sacrilege among SiciNas, symbolising the victimisation of those whose anger they represent. 

If you see her, you must immediately, and as quietly as you can, go back the way you came; for if she sees you... 

It is said that only slaves can ask for a quick death.

As hatred incarnate, she is said to destroy everything and everyone she can, without mercy or limits. Legend has her destroying entire species when the anger of those they enslaved calls her into existence, and there is no known way to appease or remove her. She serves as a reminder that what you do to others comes back to you. 



Please tell me what you think! Honest to God, I live for comments. :)

I love the lighting and colors to this. It has such a magical feel. The proportion of her features is very realistic and I can tell her knees are in front of her. The framing is perfect IMO.

Her hair is so real, I feel like I could touch it. Also, interesting choice on the textured quality of the image, almost makes it feel like a video feed. Not sure I like it, but I definitely don't not like it.

Yikes, you have a frighteningly powerful imagination. Great artwork. Reminds me a bit of some Buddhist interpretations of "hungry ghosts."
