That is both beautiful and heartbreaking. A perfect visual metaphor for his sin's effect on his soul.

This is beautiful, I haven't even seen this movie or any before it, but this is just the best. My favourite is the fabric texture and the red light, that's just perfect.

A man who chooses a path of hatred over a path of love is constantly tearing pieces of himself away until there is nothing left.

Oh's too painful for me to favorite, if that makes sense, but I do have this painful feeling Kylo Ren HAS had suicidal ideation, and pretty severely.  I hope he lives, though, and finds a way to face the pain.

The symbolism in this is absolutely beautiful! I love it!

the concept in this is stunning
rababco Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It almost looks like Kylo is committing suicide. It would be an interesting ending to the series and would make sense because he's so mentally unstable. I think Anakin probably would've committed suicide if he hadn't joined the dark side and became Darth Vader. I've even thought of an alternate ending where at the end of Episode III, instead of attacking Obi-Wan he stabs himself with his lightsaber.
Perditionn Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2016  Student Traditional Artist
Either that or he gets killed by Rey.
rababco Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It's possible Rey might kill Kylo but she could be the only one that can save him. There are hints that he cares about her (they might very well be cousins and he remembers her from when they were younger). He might follow in his grandfather's footsteps and kill Snoke to protect Rey but ends up sacrificing his own life in the process. I think it would be very fitting considering how much he's like his grandfather he is.

This picture is about self-infliction though. It looks like he stabbed himself, which is why I mentioned suicide because that's what he looks like he's done. He's being stabbed with his own lightsaber, suggesting it's self-inflicted rather than someone else stabbing him. It could also be symbolic of his self-destruction and inner conflict.

Oh. I like your theory. I am very excited to see what JJ Ambrams (pardon if I misspelled) and the creators of Star Wars do with Kylo Ren in the future.

Astounding, so noble and tragic

oh my goodness this is amazing it's one of the greatest kylo ren drawings I've ever seen!!

Man, it would actually be fitting if this is what happens to him in the end.
rababco Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Do you mean him committing suicide? It would be a very tragic ending and would show how mental ill he was. Maybe his inner conflict is so strong that he ends his own life to end the pain it causes him.
ashangel101010 Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2016
Well, I meant metaphorically. But I can see him doing that.

This... is gorgeous. I am such a sucker for this symbolism. 
Ravenlog Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2016  Student General Artist
omg,is he dead?:( I kind of like Kylo Ren, he is psychically kind of character :D 
Maybe he was weak in TFA but he may become stronger in the next movie. And I'm very curious what kind of fate will be awaiting him.

Anyway...really love this art, and  nearly can imagine the concept behind this. Great work! :)
Senkkei Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
: D thank you for liking it!! and nooo, i HOPE he doesn't die like this lol. it's just symbolism - he is very unstable as you said, and so his worst enemy is himself

i also want to see where he will go in the next movie. i'm really hoping he will turn to the light > u >
