Some personal work.

As someone who suffers with depression, these are the paintings I like to create most.

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-09-18
A powerful digital piece complemented by a color palette that allows the haunting message of the piece to come through beautifully. Stunning!

Stand back up for just one more day, and then another, and then another... 
Until fighting your battles becomes easer and easer. It's still hard sometimes,
but at least it's not as bad as before. And if you can, find something/ someone
worth fighting for.

I really like this image.  Not in the I'd-love-to-hang-this-in-my-living-room-and-stare-at-it-everyday way, but the this-has-a-poignant-message-that-is-read-clearly way.  It reminds me of the saying, "Misery loves company."  It's like this girl is trying to lift above or away from the gloom, but these shadowy hands are pulling her down into it anyway.  There is a deep sense of her powerlessness and pain.  I have several friends who suffer from depression, and this is a visual of how they describe feeling sometimes.  Wonderful work!

As someone who suffers "cheerful depression" (I feel good despite being in a dolor of lethargy), this is a rather frightening image.  For once, the grass really isn't greener.  (Then again, maybe people would have sympathy for me if my emotions felt as off as my body.)

As much as some people do respectively look to religion, they don't work too great with mental disorders. Great artwork and a powerful message!

Yeah. I'm completely fine with anyone believing anything they want; but when they tell someone who is depressed to 'get some jesus in their lives'.... No. That's just not right. Do some research before you make them more depressed.

Great artwork, though! OuO

Like, in my deepest depressive states, I feel like if zombies or sharks or something were to start capturing and eating me, I'd be a little relieved and not frightened, e.g., "Oh, good, thanks for sparing me this life," but that sentiment would definitely be tinged with regret, as well. I wonder if that's what's going on here in this picture, but the title conflicts with that interpretation.

Sorry to hear about your depression. :/ 

I mean I hear there's a "cure" from a "magical" mushroom that you get injected by.

But I personally would rather deal with my anxiety, ocd, and bi-polar disorder than be injected with something that druggies such as hippies use. 

I mean yeah it's nice to have a cure but we are also human. Humans have faults. Depriving the faults and just having strengths start wiping clear who we are as a person as human.

I don't know but it's my own little opinion about the "cure" along with that they're probably not going to use it. 

If it's chronic hopefully the periods you have it are short. If it's constant I'm sorry to hear. And if it's just temporary then I must say try and live through it.

I love all of your work but this piece in particular really speaks to me because I suffer from depression too. I know how dark things can get and how hard it is to explain what we go through to someone who doesn't understand... I always found it so much easier to express it through my drawings and poems~

Haunting and sad. I see this as a symbolic illustration of one entering the depths of their own mind, only to find how dark it truly is. The eyes are just spiraling with despair, and the rugged appearance of this girl accentuates the twisted tone of this work.

I really like the skulls hanging from the ceiling. They could embody so many different things, but that is open for interpretation. The smoke, everything is awesome!

Keep up the wicked job! :thumbsup:
