This is a quick ink painting I did. I just wanted to make it look hectic so I splattered on some ink and drew on some designs and in about thirty minutes later I was done. It may be a little more frantic than most of the hyperrealistic pieces out there but I think it conveys the mood well, even though the composition is a bit bland.

This style of art is beautifully, but at the same time filled with meaning and emotion. Great work :).

Dude, your like an artist that dropped out of the sky!
I love the way u used your brush in this one, putting more pencil into the roots and bark, hiding around words with no meaning yet meaning that means everything... the splodges r a good touch 2! :D Magnificent!

this would definately be a piece that really shows it's emotionally dark qualities to the viewer, therefore making the piece great, simply because 'dark art' takes on the title of deeper meanings. Supposedly, 'dark art' is a view into a person's harshest view on an idea, concept, or even a person or place. you have most definately captured that pit of negative emotion in this, which i feel are attributed to death. Well done.
(if i have missed the meaning or have said anything you think is false, please say so.)

Its your opinion... people can interpret the image as they want (unless they go into some weird political debate about it, then I'll call them stupid). Death is definitely a theme, seeing as a tree is commonly used as a symbol of life and my depiction of one is quite dark. The poem on the left side is taken from a graphic novel called "Three Shadows" (I recommend checking it out, its simple in appearance but quite profound) and it is about the death of an infant upon birth

its dark, but it has many profound meanings to those that can relate to it
