Thanks! basically is about loving and accepting death as a part of our destiny, the only one thing we will embrace forever.

Yes, yes, very profound and meaningful indeed. I have the conviction and strong belief that death is not "the end" of our life story. It's a way out as well as a way in into, well, into other plains and to re-incarnation. A portal to other life (or lives) if you might. Sounds like a fairy dust when you say it out loud or write it down, but it has to be true. What then we have left? The mechanical "nothingness" of the materialists? I don't think so. Death is a doorway, rather than a prison without exit. We all gonna find what lies beneath one way or another. I imagine Stephen Hawking is drinking his french wine with Elvis right now. They could! :)

“Human stories are practically always about one thing, really, aren't they? Death. The inevitability of death. . .
There is no such thing as a natural death. Nothing that ever happens to man is natural, since his presence calls the whole world into question. All men must die, but for every man his death is an accident, and even if he knows it he would sense to it an unjustifiable violation."

J.R.R. Tolkien

Actually, I'm very interested in mystical concepts and the hermetic philosophy of alchemists, however, I wouldn't dare to say that there is something "beyond" that we do not understand while we are in this existential plane. I believe we're only stardust, carbon-based organisms trying to find a meaning to life, I find it more interesting to find a meaning to death though. I really like your appreciation of the "beyond", quite interesting.
Tolkien, how wise! I am a big fan of his work and every excerpt of literature that he left us, lends to a long existentialist talk.

Great work, what great attention to detail in every leaf.
The two faces are proportion well with good depth shading.
Maybe shade a little darker but over all great piece.

Thank you very much for your comment. Yeah at first I wanted to draw a realistic face but it didn't work as I thought so I decided to draw a little bit more cartoonish, it was one of the most difficult sketches to set up.
