Call me morbid,
Call me pale,
I spent my whole life on your trail.

August 2012. Watercolor, ink, gel pen.


I dunno what I must to say, but ur black-themed style are always make me interesting to check ur another pic.
This is a big great work. But maybe for some people it's..................creepy (sorry had to say this). Maybe u most spoil ur art meaning, no offend. Of course it's 5!

This is pretty awesome stuff. This piece is good, but it's not as good as your other piece The Becoming (Part 1). Although this one has more characters, there is one thing about it that throws my eye off and that's the knife the boy on the right is holding. Although it looks like he's holding the knife, it also looks like he's holding the ghost's tail. Maybe this is done on purpose, but it just seems a bit odd. As for the the piece as a whole it's wonderful. The colors are brilliant and blend extremely well together and I like how you keep choosing to go with the clown make up. It's a nice touch! My favorite part about this piece is the girl's heart on top of her head. I get the message that she's thinking with her heart instead of her mind, which can only lead to disaster. As for the net around her her head I'm unsure of it. Though it adds to the fact that this lady has been "captured" I feel like it kind of takes away from this kick ass piece. Just above that however on the head board of the bed, the (decoration?) is fucking awesome. I can't tell if they're lights wrapped around the head board, but either way they look really well done and offer insight to your ability with water color. Last, but not least the feet and the boy's ghost/monster (seeping out of a gash on his forehead?) This part is awesome. I very much like the eyes on the monster just as much as I enjoy the feet on the female. Feet are tricky to draw, but it looks like you got the toes down really well! Although I question the big toe on the lighter (pink) foot. It doesn't look quite big enough! And one final note, those eyes in the shadow monster look great (once again) because it has two pupils meaning that there is more to this monster than what meet the viewers eye. This is a very well done piece and I love the style you've taken on. Keep doing what you're doing because it's fucking awesome.

Thank you, I enjoy your interpretation. And thanks for the critic as well! And how you call my work awesome! Thanks!
(I thought the lights wrapped around the head board of the bed looked pretty crappy, but I'm glad you like them.)
The knife and the boys hand holding the tail of the ghost/monster is done on purpose.
The knife represents how he protects himself emotionally and from letting anyone get too close. It has also been used to cut open his head to let out these disconnected parts of himself (the monster) so that they can handle the (emotional) situations he doesn't want to have anything to do with. On the same time he's trying to hold these parts back because they also tend to drag him into these situations. Like with the girl. She wants him, he doesnt want her, but he lets out these other parts of himself for her every once in a while. Maybe just to shut her up. I dont really know why. He did stop after a while though.
And the girl is all wrapped up in her own head and feelings and doesnt even really mind the monster tugging at her feet or how bizarre the whole situation is. She is not even turned towards the boy. All she ever sees is her own heart.
