Brilliant, i love it. Talk about having everything in the palm of ones hand.Its amazing, but i would love to see this image revisited, the text seems to plain, but i understand that the plainness of it could make the drawing appear much more distressing in comparison. :)

Yeah, I think I will revisit this one sometime. It's such an old piece, and I've definitely outgrown it some.

I'm even toying with the idea of doing a sculpted version of it.

Nah, just because you drew something totally out there, it doesn't make you insane. It makes you awesome!~ This rules, by the way. Definitely a favorite.

Like strongbad says - "Remember, too much of a good thing is an awesome thing. But too much of an awesome thing is...umm...really, really dumb and bad."

Aaaah, good ol' Strongbad.

This makes me think of the power of creation itself. We see something in our minds and create it with our hands and in essence become a part of it. Haha. I don't know.

You don't seem insane at all to me! :3 It's a lovely picture.

And those wrinkles near the back of the tongue are hot. Somehow.

Thanks! This one is still one of my favourites to have worked on... :thanks:

What you said, rings true tho! (even if you maybe thought it was awkward, it's like something you'd see on a motivational poster, right?). And something else people often have said, is that you can usually see some kind of resemblance to the artist in their work, even in a small way, and I don't necessarily mean just ';psychologically' or even 'appearance' wise. Just as like... a general vibe for lack of a better term...
which kinda makes me wonder considering the stuff I get upto! :O

I'm also seriously thinking of revisiting this piece (using the same sketch) and repainting it with how I've improved and what I've learned since then - I just hope I don't butcher it in the process!

about the wrinkles... hmmm... now that you mention it... :ponder:
