Blughghh. I felt mildly inspired tonight, but over nothing in specific. I've just been in the mood for dark art lately that's subtle and not filled with blood and gore, as much fun as that is to draw. So I did this. I wanted to finish it before I went to bed, but it ended up being a project that took until...Oh wow it's 8:50 AM. Until then.

Mainly inspired by the remake of the song 'In Heaven' by Helios. I like the original from Eraserhead too, it just puts you in an oddly morbid mood, but the remake is just pretty.

The alien graffiti on the wall doesn't have anything to do with that song, though. They're lyrics from the song 'Glass House' by Ani Difranco. Translation:

"Life just keeps getting harder
And it just keeps getting harder to hide
The darker it is around me
The easier it is to see inside"

It seemed befitting for this character.

I'm going to go sleep now.

minimalistic sort of

I think it looks good being nice minimalistic and all, but I think all the detail on the brick wall ruins the effect. It'd look better with a more simplified texture, maybe only hinting to the entire texture.

Yeah, it does kind of take away from the picture. I thought about doing something like that, but hell, it was 8 something in the morning. Thanks for the critique, though, I can see where you're coming from with that.
