Mind devour

This is another paradox that I've been working on for a couple of days. It describes a person with psychological problems such as schizophrenia, insanity, depression or other mental problems. His endless screaming makes his own mind eat him up.

I have periods in my life where I feel like this. I wanted to make an illustration of my thoughts and my pain within.

Equipment used: pencils (3B, 4B, 6B, 5H) stompf/blending stumps, charcoal, tissues and an eraser.

Size: Regular A2 (42 cm × 59,4 cm)

I also made an animation of it:

Superb! No further comment needed.
This is pretty good.
Wow! What a brilliant idea! Amazing!

Love the feeling of this. Would you mind if I used it for a non-profit music video (a song about depression)?

"Grey" is the song:

I love this and appreciate it even more once I read the description. The overall composition is great and your transition in between the faces flows very nicely.

omg! where... where did you see this picture? In your dreams, subconscious... or that was an arbitrary process? I have one very similar picture with the same idea of mental disorders! so now i'm just in the cognitive dissonance %-0

This is incredible, and a beautiful - eerie, startling, painful - depiction of mental anguish. Particularly intriguing is that the endless screaming is portrayed as a sort of downward spiral.
