@ nakaide: the flowers are lilacs and are symbolic of her mental condition. Lilacs are often used in aroma therapy to help with depression :-m

Very nice

Usually I write full blown reviews, but I'm curious to know, are you implying that the wear of depression is dragging her down? Like the loss of her legs and arms are symbolic of the turtle-like feel of a lack of motivation?

My only critique is it's difficult to tell the flower's are lilacs, you got the flowers right but not the definitive bunching that lilacs have in groups, and since the picture is black and white(being black and white is not a critique, this picture does well with the monochromatic feel and having the vibrant color of a lilac would destroy the detrimental and worn atmosphere) it makes it slightly more difficult to tell.

thanks for the long msg, and i totally get what you're saying about not having the bunching together,

as for the reason her arms are falling off, it has to do more with her mental health then with the depression. I was trying to have people see what it is like to have extrema phobias.

thanks for you're honest opinion man :- )

Great art!

It is good to head Saafis's points on words within your image, but it this case, I can honestly say it adds to the piece. Words can be a double edge sword, yes they can take away from the image but on the polar, they can really add to the image and bring up emotional queries that the viewer might otherwise have overlooked.

I guess it all comes down to how the viewer associates the words with the imagery. In this piece the words are interwoven throughout the image and become part of the story as a whole. It's like you can hear her thoughts.

Good job on this, it's very inspiring :)
