Into Your Eyes by enayla Into Your Eyes by enayla
"Thy soul shall find itself alone
'Mid dark thoughts of the grey tomb-stone --
Not one, of all the crowd, to pry
Into thine hour of secrecy"
(Edgar Allan Poe)

The print is submitted and will be available very soon! :D

I was painting this for a contest, but then decided to use the other piece I was working on instead - I liked it a tad more, even if this one has a bit more impact. Aaaanyway... if you want to have a look at closeups -

I'd also like to take the opportunity to point you in the direction of D'artiste, if you're curious about my painting methods (or, if you want to learn from any of the other artists that give tutorials in the book: excellent lads, all of them!). D'artiste can be found at [link] and is well worth the money :]

1. I am a coffee survivalist
Midnight artist
Cyberpunk revivalist
Reveling in informational galore
2. Check this,
Edgar Allan Poe:
You are dead
I am alive
3. All your dread
In verse and prose?
High five, my friend, high five
Do take my electronic rose
4. Oh wait, you can't, you're not alive
For you are dead
I'm still alive
Such horror & such dread
5. But fuck it! Verse comes easy, so does prose
For coffee survivalists
Midnight artists
& cyberpunk revivalists
@>>--(AN ELECTRONIC ROSE)

Not only the dagger flies toward her eyes, all the shrieks coming from behind her and reflected in the mirror attack her too. She may be already dead, but she keeps coming back again and again to open new cuts... technically, the variations in the amber lighting on her body are beautifully sorrowful...

what i feel is.. the character has schizophrenia perhaps.. the reflections in the mirror seem like the voices patients(suffering from schizophrenia) hear.. the voices compel the patient in his mind.. often coercing them to kill(others and/or self)
its an excellent depiction of just that. well done.
