The Remnant

This is a drawing I've been working on for the past few days. It has a special meaning to me and I'm glad it came out exactly the way I wanted.
No need to say that I'd love to know what you guys think of it.

- 2H, HB, 2B and 8B mechanical and regular graphite pencils on smooth drawing paper
- 10"x11" (28x32.5 cm)
- about 30 hours

Thanks for looking

I don't usually comment when looking at Art but I noticed this, and just really felt it. It also fills me with a special meaning, I'm not sure if it's the one you were trying to create, but its a very symbolic piece, I fell in love with it. lol. Good job and great execution of your idea.

Thank you for the nice comment, and for the favs :)
Care to share the meaning it has for you?

Sure, sorry for reaching back to you so soon. Your very welcome by the way.

When I see the fact that the wings are broken but also placed on a human body,  it seems to symbolize a lot. It can be broken dreams, depression that keeps you from heading where you need to, a cut back on motivation, not feeling expectations, and many things I've been through many times. If I imagine a bird with broken wings, they'd be hopeless, putting it on a human makes me see how damaged they are, in a unique way, which can be many of things.
If it's possible I'd like to hear your side of it, if thats fine. :) 

I didn't mean to ramble on, lol. I apologize.

No problem, and thank you :)
Actually your interpretation is pretty much spot on! It is indeed what I intended to convey. In short: a purpose/dream and what is left of it.

Your welcome :) 
Yay, haha. I had a feeling that was what it was, it really is nice how you artistically conveyed it. It is a killer idea! 
Hopefully you'll make more art like this one with a message? 
shimoda7's avatar
I certainly will :)
