The aftermath


Thank you for the front page, it was a pleasant surprise.

this was a therapeutic exercise meant to display anger, sadness, confusion, and loneliness

acrylic, watercolor, ink, whiteout

death is represented by the buzzard vulture
the crime scene out lines represent the numerous car accidents I have driven by or witness, some fatal some not. and how they still remain with me
the separated piano keys represents their last songs

This is awesome, it kind of reminds me of Ralph Steadman.

I'm completely unqualified to say this, but I firmly express true art doesn't involve computation.

It's got strong points, for sure, but everyone seems to have those handled. I'd rather tell you about how it's visually cluttered, and how there's little to no relationship between the lights and darks making it even more confusing. In there you got red, yellow, black, and white... did you need the yellow? I'm not exactly sure how it's adding to it. Sorry, splatters don't mean anything to me.

It looks like you put a lot of effort into that vulture, if you just toned down the effects then the composition would do the rest for you, as it's already drawing my eye to the head.

This is sick, dude. Love the technique, the composition, really just everything.

Good composition sir, also the dirty washes of texture are brilliantly displayed to make the mood stronger. Keep it up!
