@ nakaide: the flowers are lilacs and are symbolic of her mental condition. Lilacs are often used in aroma therapy to help with depression :-m <3

Wow, this is a really weird and dark picture. I wasn't quite sure what it was supposed to represent. I am so glad to find out it was about a mental condition. I know what that's like. I do wish there was color. It's still a beautiful picture.

You have captured human suffering so well. When going through mental pain, a lot of us feel like this. I really do hope everything goes well for her. Same to you if you experienced anything like it. Her arms look like spaghetti.

Amazing!

This work is truly amazing ! I would like to wear it as a shirt, it would be so nice singing in front of a crowd with something as beautiful as this on my chest (:

lolwut

Is this related to loopy-hands? /trollscience

I like the monochrome scheme, the picture is plain awesome.

Very nice

Usually I write full blown reviews, but I'm curious to know, are you implying that the wear of depression is dragging her down? Like the loss of her legs and arms are symbolic of the turtle-like feel of a lack of motivation?

My only critique is it's difficult to tell the flower's are lilacs, you got the flowers right but not the definitive bunching that lilacs have in groups, and since the picture is black and white(being black and white is not a critique, this picture does well with the monochromatic feel and having the vibrant color of a lilac would destroy the detrimental and worn atmosphere) it makes it slightly more difficult to tell.

Yoshiko13 responds:

thanks for the long msg, and i totally get what you're saying about not having the bunching together,

as for the reason her arms are falling off, it has to do more with her mental health then with the depression. I was trying to have people see what it is like to have extrema phobias.

thanks for you're honest opinion man :- )

Interesting, and mind teasing!

Makes you think! Such art, makes me think...
