Suicide By Star

youtu.be/b7GTkkA2q8o
I started this drawing 2 years ago. I can remember that night out of many, when discouraged to live the life, I was sitting in front of my screen during a summer night,
as the sun was merely rising outside the window. I don't think I've ever opened this drawing for more than 2 hours in a row. A line here, a drop there, and back to the
stash for another 3 months. Today I found myself bored, and thinking, that it's been a while since I uploaded anything somewhat decent to my gallery. Is this somewhat
decent? Well, it's better than lazy quick sketches. Although you could call it a very slow and a very lazy sketch, haha

TBF even your "lazy" sketches look amazing soo...

But this is so detailed and beautiful! Wow! All that texture and light, I swoon <3 The end of the arrow (quills?) look just amazing, the more I keep looking over this the more amazing it looks.

Your use of color, light and shadows is really beautiful. It feels like a very somber piece. There is so much to love about this piece but I am in particular drawn to the way the light catches on the arrow feathers. Lovely work.

Ah thank you so much! salmon heart bullet 
I am very glad it's the feeling you are getting from it! I love this kind of macabre aesthetic. A silent feeling of dread.
Thank you for your wonderful elaborate comment! Means a lot to me! :hug:

I don't know but that liquid coming out the horse neck, reminds me of a tear. After all suicide is a thing that brings a lot of tears. A loudly silent cry. Awesome job :clap:

Thank you very much! I guess it’s either the famous glittery unicorn blood, or perhaps tears indeed :lol:

I can see the time and care put into this, the textures are incredibly lifelike <3 I think just doing a tiny bit at a time without forcing it can produce some great art, or at least an enjoyable process for sure.

Yeah it's been a journey for sure. The most interesting part was probably looking at the drawing at different points in time, acquiring more skills and knowledge, noticing thing I wasn't before
Thank you very much! :hug:

This is absolutely flawless. As always, every detail is presented with breathtaking accuracy - so sharp I might need a band-aid for each eyeball

Such an intriguing creature, I'm especially captivated by the eyes. It's almost as if they're marble eyes. The lighting, textures and shading are wonderful, I feel like this piece is more than decent, it's one of a kind! ^^
