Wow, this is amazing! X3 I love how you've used symbolisation and surrealism in this; the crying eye on parched rock, with the beauty of nature all around. This piece could have so many meanings I wouldn't even know where to begin with it. XD I love how you've used shading and use of outlining in this; accurate, but still artistic. ^^
Beautiful work, very inspirational. :D

It's really cool. Strangely it reminds me of a piece I did a couple of years back called 'Don't Look at it Again'. Odd how some imagery is universal.

your inspirational piece, huh? it certainly got me thinking...I like the fact that something you drew a decade ago remains strong to your psyche.

I just looked again on Full View. It is full of conflict. I really like it.

You also drew things which symbolise hope and life, like the butterfly and the tree.

The cracks in the skin however look like taxidermied skin, which I suppose symbolises some sort of drawn out pain? or emotional death?

I was originally drawn to this sketch because the eye is still bright and the iris is realistically coloured/texured.

The clouds hovering in the background are subtly ominous, too.

it really good...

wow...i'm really delighted that you thought about this pic so much!

to be honest, when i draw i don't think so much about the detail in the symbolism.
but later when i look at it i can interpret the things that i draw...i think it comes from the subconsciousness...

thanks for watching and thinking about it! much appreciated!
