I drew this a few months ago, and finally finished coloring it yesterday. I was feeling pretty empty at the time I came up with this. That's as specific as I'd like to get about the emotions behind it.

Tech:
Pencil on bristol board
Copic Liners
PS7

The amount of detail you use on things always impresses me.

It helps if you look at it from far away.

It's like she's all out of everything...not even enough left to power an idea. Damn. I've been there. You know what I think is so fascinating about this? That, even though it conveys a real sense of hollowness from inside her, the entire picture seems like a living thing. I mean, it's that full of "real-ness" and life. I think I could look at it all day.

:blush: Thank you.
I was trying to go for that Dada-esque motion-in-stillness look. There's also some very blatant symbolism hidden in plain sight in this picture. I wonder if anyone will notice it?

You mean like where the wires are threading through? (I thought that was pretty good...specific points with specific meaning)

Hmmm... Very interesting... I enjoy the detail of the glass shards in her hair.

Wow~
For a peice inspired by feelings of emptiness, it's full to the brim with colors and themes that speak to me as a viewer.
I like the little heart, it makes the girl look almost two-dimensional which feeds into the 'empty' theme.

C'est magnifique!
