Dark as roses and fine as sand I feel your healing in your sting again I hear you laughing and my soul is saved On forgotten graves you cry -Chris Cornell, Sunshower

heh... I rest my case. Next time I'll make sure the skeleton has large, ample, spherical globes of flesh hanging from it's chest. 2

This is really cool. It's really eerie and has a good desolate and deserted feeling. Wow. It's really freaky.

heh.. If you want to get a LOT of comment next time do almost the same thing but two silicon globes on the skeletons chest. That ought to get you a few 12 j/k It is very good though. My favorite by you so far.

O h wow earrie.I like it.Hmm symbolizes time and all things forgotten maybe?Or the futelness of our lives in the scheme of things?

I love it. The position of the figure makes it more than a mere skeleton, it is an animate being, ready to stand and walk off, just as soon as it feels rested enough. *L* Great job on the background, I love the hourglass and the rosebush.

Absolutely about futility and entropy. It is waiting for something that will never be, or that will never be for it, anyhow. The song By Chris Cornel (former SoundGarden lead singer) that gave this image to me is from a movie called "Great Expectations" based on the classic novel by Dickens. It is a fantastic song, a fantastic movie, and it is about these things, to me. How you can have it all and it still isn't enough.

I love your pic. It tells a definite story. I love what you did with the rose bush...and those leaves! I wish I could draw them that good. I just usually draw anime.

I started off only drawing Anime. It is a great place to start, the lines are clean and simple, with very clear angles. The leaves are just a matter of patience. They're really a pretty simple design, just lay one over the next. When I was younger, I didn't have patience for that kind of thing, but it gets easier as you get older.

The whole picture is just like...good. the rose bush didn't need to be any fuller! it fits with the whole skeletal theme there...
