Melancholia by PURErube Melancholia by PURErube
Inspired by the movie Melancholia. I was feeling rather depressed myself during the time of this piece so it seemed fitting. My world seemed to crash down on me when I was feeling this way. I used moon jelly fish to represent myself (as the moon) seeing another planet crashing down on earth (my ~life~ if you will) and im just seeing it crash before me. Hope you guys like it!

i love this image, reminds me of something I felt once. It could have been fear or isolation maybe both, I'm not sure anymore. Also, i just love the jellyfish, nice work bro <333

You are really rather beautiful, Rube.
A wonderful piece of work in and of itself right here.
I'm glad you have a creative outlet you can express yourself through.
And, in turn, comfort others with the knowlegde that they're not the
only ones feeling this way.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful artwork!
I hope things are beginning to look up for you. <3

That blue hair makes you look like an anime character (in a good way :D) I saw this as more relaxing than depressing. But reading the comment I can now see the relationship going on in here (and even though this wasn't meantioned, I'm assuming a sea of jellyfish could be a representation of pain too :O)

GURL U GOT IT. That's exactly what it was meant for as well (the jellyfish / pain deal.)
My hair is can be so easily manipulated to any color haha. I had dark hair there, but somehow i managed to turn it blue in photoshop without it looks horrible.

I guess I did learn something about catching the symbolism in art during school after all :bow: It's nice to know something is more than just a pretty picture (not that there's anything wrong with those either =p)
