And last wall from Pool Party, the theme for Round 3 was Self-Representation

Instead of working with my own photo, I decided to just draw an original character. Those designs were random at first, and lately I seemed to have interest on heart and blood and how they melt. It's just weird. And suddenly came those eyes and then the wings. They're all melting like you just had a heartbreak, but you don't.

Textures from Bashcorpo and Stock.xchng, brushes from Celestial-Star and DA!, main font by Last-Soundtrack. A lil bit of inspiration from Evanescence's The Open Door and some Beethoven.

More resolutions (soon) at EDD!

    Wow, loving the abstractness! The lineart is so clean, the textures are sweet and I do so love how the blues and warm colours stand out. I'm fascinated by the vine-like 'tendrils' of blood vessels, and flowers intertwining.. There's a slightly morbid touch with the dual-coloured eyeballs ( Suiseiseki/Souseiseki vibe?) and the dripping red heart.. and I must say I like it! I like your original character's design, his eyes look crystalline, and he's got this mysterious feel.. The melting wings idea is cool, especially since the white wing looks like melting wax!

    Everything goes together so well, even though they are all such different elements. The rainbow, the eyeballs, the music earphones, the wings, the heart, the waxy theme, the gushes of wind from the flowers (Which I'm curious about. Sighing flowers? Or since it's heartbreak, it's kinda like "all the flowers I gave you didn't really mean love; my confessions, they're but as substantial as wind" ..OK, that's a bit much) I just noticed; the earphones are connected to the heart. Listen to the heart! XD

    Yea, this was so fun to analyse after sitting through exams.. that aren't over, actually. I shouldn't be here. >_< But it's so tempting. Anyhow, this was music-inspired, how about joining depths-of-sound? It's an art group for those who get inspiration from music! Haha, I'm taking over dslassey's job.. :P

    See you! I hope this gets highlighted, but we'll see..

    If this was in w?w I think I'd start having trouble working out your stuff from alterlier's, I think. It must be the way you two are able to blend beautiful, creepy and just plain cool together! XD
    ...and I'm not sure why, but I love the way the red line breaks up at the end, and is only held together by a thin string.
