I really like how each seperate image is layered beneath another and sort of butts into the image(s) next to it. They all have the same skull/skeletal idea and complement each other well. I also like how the middle image fades into this little kid at the bottom all huddled up in this small wooden box/room/whatever, which I supppose represents the confines of his mind, or something similar. This piece feels really personal and I think represents a lot of insecurites and emotions that people have inside.
The only advice I would give is that the poem in the bottom right corner is just a little too crazy (like chescire cat crazy) to feel real. It doesn't feel personal enough or seem to represent the feelings that a lot of people have inside enough, since this seems to be a look at the emotions and experiences of someone who is trapped inside their mind and unable to control the emotions inside of them. To be honest, I've always thought poems that rhyme are a little cheesy, so that's another reason I think it doesn't suit this. Maybe if it just got down to the point and said what the person trapped at the bottom really feels instead of hiding behind some crazy, seemingly nonsensical phrases would it be better.
All-in-all, though, I like it. 4 1/2 out of 5. Keep drawing :)

thanks, i always love reading the longer comments about my pictures. this picture is very personal, and i was a bit crazy when i wrote that poem.., i guess this is one of those pictures for me to look back on and see where i was at the time when it was drawn.. i do wish i hadnt written the poem when i think about the aesthetics of the image.. but its an insight into where i was (mentally) at the time, and only i can really understand whats written.. (i never expected many people to see this picture anyways.)

Leonardo DaVinci on acid couldn't even compete.

This is so trippy and beautiful. I love the stippling. It looks like you had a lot of time but that just makes it cooler.

I like it...

The only problem is that its abit too EMOish, I understand that its got emotions in it... but it was abit too much of the EMO touch.

FaLk responds:
