"Chasing after death just to call ourselves brave." Blackstar reference? ;)
Anyway, this is a beautiful piece. The expression on her face is just on point. Lovely work. :)

For someone being eaten up, she looks amazingly calm.

Been listing to Mos Def?, chancing after death to call ourselves brave, still living like mental slaves. So true, for the black community in my city.

Saddened by unknown grief... she plucks my heart out... And the polars bears...
How natural... their reaction, to her decision...
Not to die awaste, but to be nutrition to those that can use her as fodder...

I thought polar bears just played in the snow and drank coca-cola. here they look kind mean.

Wow, this is a really interesting painting. I like the difference in the bears' tolerance of her presence, from having one let her sit on him to two others violently attacking her. It's really, strangely, peaceful. Awesome.
