We create our own fears

the creature in the piece represents the persons fear and doesn't actually exist which is why the hand fades away when it enters the light.


Wow, this is amazing! I love the message and emotion conveyed through the piece!

This is really great! I really love how you conveyed the message.

The light effect and the composition make it stand out even as a thumbnail. And the message, I can totally feel fwhat you mean. Love it! :)

DeclanMcDermott97 responds:

thanks, glad you like it

Interesting and beautifully illustrated!

I really appreciate the theme that you've accomplished here. Personal fears are such a common theme across humanity. The chiseling out of stone in this work really communicates how long it can take or how much effort it takes to build and develop some of the more complicated fears one creates.

Small critique, i think the additional stylized elements that pass behind the fading hand's forearm actually detract from noticing that the hand has faded. You mentioned it in the description though and thus i noticed it.

People find this review helpful!

thanks for the feed back, I get what you mean about the hand being easy to miss that's why I put it in the description. I'd try make it more noticeable but I'd rather not ruin the piece :)
