Collapse this darkness:
fingers comb forth discordant light
into the maw that swallows dreams
Hidden beneath the muted gloom:
a face not of this world
So, a few months ago I burned out. I completely lost my motivation to do anything. I started this before I left for vacation to try and kick my own ass back into gear, but I couldn’t finish it before I left because I was so listless. But now that I've returned, I feel much better.
I have my energy back—and my inspiration.
Anyway, this didn’t take much time to paint… it was more experimental than anything, a different approach to a character portrait. I hope you enjoy; it's been so long since I've had new work to show. <3
