A-Bomb by SRudy A-Bomb by SRudy
This drawing took me a long while to finish, I'm actually so happy with the result, it's about Hiroshima, the atomic bomb.

This drawing is inspired by a song called "I come and stand at every door" for the band "This mortal coil"
I also got inspired from my amazing close friend, !fidele7684 Thanks a lot :heart:


I come and stand at every door
But no one hears my silent dread
I knock and yet remain unseen
For I am dead, for I am dead

I'm only seven although I've died
In Hiroshima long ago
I'm seven now as I was then
When children die they do not grow

My hair was scorched by swirling flame
My eyes grew dim, my eyes grew blind
Death came and turned my bones to dust
And that was scattered by the wind

I need no fruit, I need no rice
I need no sweet, nor even bread
I ask for nothing for myself
For I am dead, for I am dead

All that I ask is that for peace
You fight today, you fight to die
So that the children of this world
May live and grow, and laugh and play

This is very moving... I love the expression on her face, her upper lip seems stiff, as if she is stoically taking the pain of being burned up from her feet...

Breathtaking, also the poem.

However, I'm still not sure why her legs look a bit as if she's a faun? I'm sorry for my ignorance..

So amazing, it took my breath away and tore half of my heart along. This is SO "bouleversant", i think you say "upsetting" or "moving" but in a shocking sense, which suits the topic perfectly. And the technique is also incredible !
