Wow, I'm awed at the amount of pure, raw, emotion you can pull out of people simply with everyday art tools and exquisite imaginary vision. Rage .. Protection .. Disgust .. Sadness .. Misery .. Awe .. Curiosity .. Seriousness .. Wonder .. I see it in the comments here. Spectacular, Masterful work. Art is ment to bring forth emotion. To give the ability to say things the mouth is unable to articulate into words. Well done.

Have you painted a face in the blood? Because I can see one :P

I love the theme of this and how disconcerting it looks in this angle - the only thing that bothers the eye is the button in the right upper corner, it's just too contrasting and it takes the attention away from the girl's stare.

This is unbelievable. I thought it was a real photograph and is hard to believe it is not! This image strikes me deep, his innocent face is cold white and lifeless, the blood is so real and horrifying. It makes me desire to know what all just took place but then again I dread the answer.

a friend of mine pointed you out after a discussion about melancholic and confronting art :iconraipun:. I must say she is right. It is confronting. Not many artists dare this to paint/draw.

I love this. My eye is drawn to his matted hair and I'm intrigued as to the story behind the bloodshed. The blood smears around his nose are perfect, you've managed to replicate spontaneity even though I'm sure your brush strokes were incredibly precise. What an amazing piece of work.

I wish interesting portraits like this were at the museums around my home. Brilliant, but I'm sure you've heard that enough times. ;)

An uncomfortable image; what inspired this? This is one of those things that sticks in my head not only because of the amazing handling of the mediums but also because of the mind-grabbing subject matter......

Wish I could paint like that, if you hadn't said I'd have thought it was a photo. Wonderful mood with the lighting and blood.

i could not understand how you can realize that... her skin.. her hair and all the rest. it is so real... i'm not totally sure that it could be a painting... i belive that it is, but how is it possible to reproduce such a perfect image? i don't care if you paint since you were one years old, every day! your atrs are too perfect.
How many hours did you take to do this one..?
