I don't know if this was a suicide or an accident or a punishment, though it would make sense if it was a suicide. The wrists were slit after I drew the demons/devils, though. It just made me think of "if you commit suicide, you'll go to hell because you threw away God's greatest gift; the gift of life" (I'm not a christian, but I still think "Throwing away God's greatest gift" sounds kind of.. I dunno, interesting?)

And why does it always feel so satisfying to draw blood? *sigh*

Thanks!!! And actually it's not watercolor, believe it or not! It's Winsor and Newton's ink (here's a pic I found on google: [link] ) and quink: [link] That reacts very nice with water, you can get a lot of different shades! And I thiiink I used color pencils for the pants.. and MAYBE some watercolor for the skin, but it might be red ink too o_o *too detailed answer*

But again, thanks!! :D

Where I go to uni, they cost around 3-4 pounds, but you're not in the UK, sooo that's not exactly relevant to you, haha, but I found this page when doing a quick search on google: [link] where it says you save 20% by buying from them. I really like the inks because of the transparency and the strong colors. If you're interested in trying out new media, I recommend ink. But working with quink can also be very interesting. You can do a lot with it!

I don't know what kind of shops you have where you are, but if there's any art shops near, you can also go check there and ask if they have any inks :)

I've had some ideas to do some pictures with blood in them lately and I think you just tipped the scale in making me really wanting to put those ideas on paper, I guess I would say thanks if I wasn't so busy? haha

awesome picture btw, guess you get molested on your way down to hell? hahaha XD sorry i couldnt help myself!

Haha, you could do some quick sketches while having lunch or before going to bed maybe? And then draw them out more seriously when you have time later on?

And hahahahaha!!! Probably!!!!

OuO I love the story behind this drawing! I'm not a real christian neither but I understand pretty well this notion of "god's gift waste" even if I think that we can't blame people who kill themselfs.

anyway I just noticed the demon's face (the right one) ha ha awesome! >u< kind of "do you want to join him too?" x)
and I love the line that you used, it's different from your other drawings in a very interesting way ^^
also I love how you always "play" with the light, I have to practice that aswell <_<!
really nice work UuU *pat pat*

No, I don't blame people with horrible lives to end them, but it's kind of interesting thinking about life as "a gift" from god, and not just any gift, but the greatest of them all!

And hehe, yeah I found that other demon kind of creepy, and you're right, it's a little bit like "this will be you if you don't behave!"

And thanks, yeah, I'm trying out new "styles" and ways to work, and I'm happy you mentioned the "play" of light. Light and colors are something I always find very inspiring myself, so it feels natural to experiment with it D: If you instead of thinking "I have to practice it" try to think: "what kind of atmosphere do I want in my drawing?" then you will have to work with light automatically UuU You should try it!

ho yes but I was completely agree with you about this "ultimate gift" ^^

and I've tried to think about the "atmosphere" on one of my drawing as you suggested and you were right...OuO
it's not as complexe as yours but at least I've try to work on the light ^^

I could so dive into a philosophical rant, but I will refrain...

Instead I will say that I seriously like the lighting effects, it really gives the image depth.

Yes, I am impressed with my self restraint (or is it just the paper I am slaving away at that is keeping me under wraps?) =p
Well, really it isn't a touchy subject for me; just one rich with philosophical and I like some good intellectual exercise :D

Ah yes, I have a growing pile of unfinished things... meh, hopefully I will be able to get to some of them soon. But yes, it is a good feeling to see something through til its conclusion. (And I am always happy to have your art showing up in my message alerts :D)

Haha now you're making me curious! And after sending the last comment, I realized maybe it was the "christian" part, rather than the suicide part of the artist's comment that made you want to rant, I dunno, haha, but I'm not gonna squeeze it out of you if you feel it's better off saving it :XD:

And aah, yes, hopefully! I've been so busy with school, and it's been so hard to make myself paint or color my sketches in any way lately, sooo it felt nice to just DO IT!!! Maybe the holiday will give you time to finish something too? And aw, that always makes me happy that it makes you happy, haha! :D

:iconkestrel-black:
Kestrel-Black Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh, I could get going on either :D

And do trust, I can have some epic rants on such juicy subjects but I must save them for another time (as I have my own schoolwork to attend to).

Well, then I will wish you luck over the Holidays, or just some quality time with friends and family (which can be its own accomplishment).
