Thema of this art is love.
But, it's dark.

I wanted to draw the love's dark side.
This art consists of six pictures.
Six pictures are connected by a red string.
It starts from the finger of the girl in upper right, and it is concluded by someone's under the left finger.
It is a happy ending though this art is dark.
Because she is not solitary.

I cutted from this art to six pieces, and I created post cards.

Always thank you for the comment.
I wish to express my gratitude deeply.

That piece has something so particuliar about it! As if you gave it a part of your own soul... it's really the dark side of love, you can feel it somewhere inside you when you look at it!

Well deserved DD, I love love and art about it that is held a bit darker. This piece of work is just beautiful... and the idea as well. The style is marvellous.

I get the feeling that its not a happy ending at all.

Sure. She’s not alone at the end, but it seems that perhaps it would have been better for her if she HAD been alone: if she had had the strength to walk away. That last picture with the bride: the way her beau is standing there with the red string wrapped tight around his hand, manically smiling and posed like a puppeteer, and that skull on the cake…it’s all foreboding. It doesn’t seem like a wonderful relationship at all, but one this poor girl is now trapped in…until death.

Which may be sooner rather than later... :faint:

This is a very eerie piece with great attenntion to detail (particuarly the cutlery and cups in that one pannel). I also love the flat, graphic colors. But I see it more as a cautionary tale rather than a fairytale.

to be honest, I strongly feel the dark side and the emotions that were put into this fine work of art.
I've never seen these colors used in such a melancholic way to denote the solitary and yet the solitude struggle that love offers within most of us.
the maroon reminds me of bitter cherry syrup, while the blue makes me think of water and sky.
I see love also as a red string, but tied to needles pinned into the heart... I guess my view is somehow primitive.
bravo! it's calm, yet disturbing...

Really awesome artwork! Lots of detail and it looks like it can tell a story, which I think is cool.
