Darkness Overcoming by soul-sama Darkness Overcoming by soul-sama
I was constantly reminded of my own life, while making this piece. Everything closing in. The voices all talking at once. Creepy stuff like that, and honestly I wanted to/did break down like the character in this commission.

I was commissioned for this piece, by, :iconkyan:. She had such an excellent character. I worked on this with feeling, and I hope when looking close enough at the picture, others can see that, as well. If you read my most recent journal, I'm sure you can understand my feelings. If not, then I hope you appreciate my effort to portray a lot of feeling. If you don't want to feel bad for the poor guy, don't look too long at his face.

I love the detail and pure, raw emotions displayed here. The colors work together perfectly, and his facial expression really brings it all together. 10/10
Those spikes on his knees look particularly painful.

A friend once told me this thingie, and I think it prossibly fits with what's going on here.
'You only feel depressed when the world is beating on you, and you don't have any way to counter it. The way I've found to counter it? It's to give the world a solid thwack in the face. That'll teach it for beating on me'. That was my flatmate Garry. I have chronic depression, and he always says stuff like that to buck me up. 'Tis good.

amazing job. I full-sized it, and the look on this poor guy's face ripped my heart out. Very cool shadowing effects. I like the over-all look of the character, as well as the tone of the picture. Very depressing and hopeless. Incredible work.

Ahahaha... Jarral has been desribed as being "a bit emo"... *chuckles*
Though... if you knew the voices in the walls were going to some day break through and tear your soul from you body... wouldn't you be a little scared too?
If you had stared into the abyss and suddenly realised that you were just the figment of someone's twisted imagination... would your little mind not snap? *laughs* Man I love this character... he's so doomed

Suspiciously similar to my own emotions and such at this particular moment. Sometimes you just want to stop, fall into it and let the tears spill over. But unlike this poor fellow in the above picture, I don't get the pleasure of crying... I keep it in.
