For a brief moment mans soul was revealed by TheDreadfulPencil For a brief moment mans soul was revealed by TheDreadfulPencil
I managed to battle futility long enough to draw again this evening. Here is the result. Thanks for looking.

More luck than judgement I'm afraid, but it's very good of you to say so.

i will take that as it though what you did was accidental...
so was the chernobyl meltdown, and though there is much suffering associated with it, it is an inexplicable intensely beautiful place now. the decay is stunning and shows a world touched by but without humanity... not to get too philosophical but the accidents and choices i have made artistically are frequently the only things that impress me about myself.
hope you are well.

There is a great deal about you that I admire and that impresses me; including but far more than your artwork.
Thank you for the beautiful analogy. I agree. Aesthetically decay can be beautiful and if we have the strength to observe objectively can be beautiful on a spiritual level too.
Although we could talk about "Is there ever really such a thing as an accident?" I've realised that most of my drawings (and paintings) evolve without much conscious input. A lot of the time I work on autopilot.
Thank you for asking, the intensity of my recent malaise is subsiding and my strength slowly returns. I hope your own ship has found calmer waters.
Take care

I've just checked out the result of your demonic play. Great job. It turned out stronger than I expected :-)
I have no knowledge of this new fangled computer trickery. Maybe I should learn...
But alas, no, I shall stay in my cave with but a pencil for comfort. :-)

Check a couple more variants) One of them colored)
And at the expense of the cave and comfort, try different ways)
Try paint and a brush, try the digit.) 
Immediately should not get what you want, but you don't upset and try again)

I'll check them out. Painting I tolerate as another means of expression, but I haven't used digital art since 1992. I guess I'm a traditionalist at heart. Who knows, perhaps I may one day dip a toe into the 21st century. :-)

Even though you have strengthed my original image in a number of ways here, I guess I am old school at heart. A long time ago I set myself the task of using only my hands and physical materials to create.
What you've done with my drawing has, for me, highlighted the areas I need to improve upon.
For now I shall continue to stick with traditional methods and work upon the contrast levels and, when I paint again, the colour.
Thanks to your skilled manipulation, the weaknesses in my work have been highlighted. I'll learn from this and improve.
Thank you :-)

You're welcome.) I know that you can do even more impressively) with traditional materials is also possible, may not be as fast, but it is possible.)

Thank you dear Aya,
but I'm not too sure about that. I scribble a bit and draw what's inside my dreadful soul.
Every time I think it's finally empty, something else comes out. :-)

Thank you Mio. I really appreciate your kind words.
The sadness of the world, expressed through the form of man, is hidden behind many a door.
This planet is really a giant tear, floating alone in the dark night of space.
