When I see this piece and imagine what the scene is like, I can imagine the mental state of the person in the image slowly degrading away, emotional trauma grinding away deep inside to the point of extreme action. Who knows what's on the screen though? A dark, ultimate revelation? Extreme emotional and mental degrading of the subject? Being found out for something extreme? Talking to friends one last time online before performing suicide? The angel-wing bloodstain from the bullet wound behind the head I feel represents ascendancy of the soul as the ultimate relief from a painful life, ready to move onto the next great adventure beyond the mortal realm.

Hope you don't mind that I used this piece as an inspiration piece for my second AIM entry!

Thank you so much for such a thoughtful comment ^_^ I love yor interpretation. If you want to know what I was thinking was going on here, the girl is livestreaming her suicide. You should totally show me your entry!

Physical art with sculptures has always been something I've wanted to do for quite awhile. Everything in this piece fits together really well. The waxy skin texture, the bloodshot eyes, the glazed look of near-death, the thin synthetic hair, even the teeth tucked away inside of the sculpture and slightly poking out are great! The symbolism completes it and gives it the 5/5 from me, fantastic work!

The Art-Inspired Music contest for Newgrounds in 2017 is currently underway. I hope that you don't mind that I've used this piece of artwork as inspiration towards my track which I've entered.

zephyo responds:

that's totally fine! and this is such a lovely, considerate review. Thank you so much for taking the time to write it ^_^

I got pretty fed up of the song for this level on KH preeeeeeety quickly haha

Troisnyx responds:

I don't blame you for thinking so; that song is a mockery of every musical and every drum solo in existence. XD

So Deshiel, dem0lecule and I challenged each other in a compose-off duel to make a track each based off of a piece of Newgrounds based art and this artistic piece was selected!

Have you got any texturing planned for it?

Hi Lich - thx for the stars :-D I started on a skin shader but am inspired to make some monster / makeup styles too... it'll be a while before serious progress will be reached - learning html5 & webGL stuffs too. Busy, awesome times learning every waking moment. Cheers!

Super dooper awesome, I would absolutely love to purchase a large print of this from you to hang up in my little studio! The splashed/Fractal-esq look this presents reminds me of a broken, corrput type of mood and with the angry and dark colours used aswell it really does fit in with what you called the Artpiece aswell!

Question: The A.I.M (Art-Inspired Music) contest on Newgrounds will be officially starting on March 9th on the Audio Forum and as part of the competition we have to make tracks based around pieces of artwork submitted to Newgrounds. is it possible if I could use this art-piece as an Inspiration for one of my Tracks which I will make for the competition? :)

Rhunyc responds:

Awesome man! I do have prints available at my zazzle store! :) (if you go to my user page, can't miss it)

An absolutely! You'll have to shoot me a pm with the result!

I really do love your work, all of it is really well-drawn and full of enough detail to make your pieces look realistic!

Quick question, how much do you roughly charge to do commision piece for someone usually? Just curious :)

Adovion responds:

Thanks you very much. I try my best at the only think i'm really good at.

It depends on what type. You can check out my charge rate here http://adovion-art2.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/commissions-are-open.html
Don't worry, it's just my blog :P

I'm a lot cheaper than most people. I'm not that good yet.

This is a wonderful piece, the concept behind it is brilliant and I'm especially fond of how well the reflection work looks through the water.
My only other thought is that the tree looks slightly too sharp but that's probably just a side-effect of the grainy art-style incorporated into the piece.

Overall a very nice piece :)

Anchorwind responds:

Thanks for taking the time to review. I'm glad you enjoyed. The tree is a bit crisper on purpose, I'm glad you noticed :) . It is common for me to incorporate an element or two that is a bit 'off' or asymetrical in many of my works [audio and visual].

Rawr :3

Officially count me as a fan!

I started out here on NG. Anything not specifically on Bandcamp is Unofficial. LD-W is my other (now main) NG account going forwards.
