You know, mostly "artists" from Deviantart are always into self inserts, mary sues or just weird fetishes they like to post up, which is why I left because of it's obsurdity and ridiculousness that the site allows to some extent.
but this was probably one of the best original concepts I've seen, and it's good to see artists like you bring something original like this to give the audience something to enjoy and and think about; the afterlife is quite something to have in mind at some thought. ( It's also good to see artists like you that are actually worth viewing on the site.)
For something you did 10 years ago it's still a masterpiece to this day. I give a 10/10
Sorry for rambling on, but I tend to have some bad memories on DA, lol hope you didn't mind the paragraph. =)
