The Devil

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This piece is a bit of a window into my life.  I struggle with my appearance incessantly.  At my worst, I feel like a terrible person.  In this piece I look into the mirror and see everything that haunts me about myself.  The tear is something that I added but I haven't figured out why yet.  ^_^;  Sorry.  I entitled it 'The Devil' because the reflection is quite demonic.  I also thought that if it reminded me of anything it would be the Devil card in a tarot deck.  But I think that it may have a different meaning in most tarot decks.  Anyway, it could also be a representation of my subconscious mind telling me of what lies ahead after death.  But I think it is more likely representing my current pain.  Meh.  You decide and tell me what you think.  ;)I don't work much with reflections so this piece was a bit of a challenge for me.  I wanted the mirror to be bigger so that you'd see more, but it just didn't work that way.  I am annoyed by the flames.  Hell could be better in general.  I like the idea of both the bovine horns and the horns of a goat.  I don't like that you can see my pencil lines, but oh well, I forgot to erase them before I scanned it.
