I came here to favourite this. Seems like I've already done so. I wanna do it again, damnit.


This is how I feel right now.

Firstly Mike, sorry it took me so so long to get around to it. I've decided I'm going to comment on your work when I'm in the right mood for commenting, so I can give it my all.

I think you know I love this piece. Yet I just can't seem to find the words to tell you exactly why I do. I think it's just the general feeling that I get when I look at this. Just that want to do exactly what the character in this piece is doing I can connect strongly with. It's the one that you get when you feel that everything is falling apart, and all you can do is sit - by yourself - and contemplate, think, release.

I guess something else I get out of this is the fact that everything else is black. Again that feeling when everything has crashed and burned, that everything is black, that you are alone, is what I'm feeling. Maybe this connection is why I love it. How you wish that darkness would just swallow you up...

Mike, this is truly a wonderful piece. So simplistic, yet the feelings I get out of this are so so profound. I mean, this one really does strike a chord inside me, again because I feel I can relate in some way. I love the single colour use here, the way you've done the shading, and how brilliant the character looks. Just. Love. It.

As you well know by now, I love this piece. I really hope this comment and the consequent favourite can in some way do justice for just what I get out of this piece. Keep doing what you do Mike, I just can't get enough.

:+favlove:

:hug:

-Tom

:sniff: your words did it justice, friend. you always know how to make a guy smile. thanks so much for the great comment, man. makes me feel great inside knowing you can connect with it so well (but obviously that anyone should have to connect with this is depressing)

I'm so glad they did Mike. It was the least I could do, and say, about this wonderful piece. And in my eyes you are most deserving of comments like these.

Always here to keep pullin' you through Mike :)

hm.. I thought I commented on this.. :confused: meh.. oh well :shrugs:

anywho.. I like how you establish so much empty space with just the guy in the corner of a room.. a room mainly made of black and emptiness. Along with his expression and the blue of the drawing on black, you really feel the sadness.

..OOOO! I remember.. I tried commenting on it before but everytime I tried to type in a few lines of comment, it would freeze and refresh the page 0_o I think I was trying to say how you are not content with what you have but rather just face the fact and live with it :hug::Hug: you know I'm always there for you no matter what. Take care, keeping arts'in :#1:

intense tension intent on separation,
in the corner, absorbing the dark,
apart....

shadows are always welcoming.

indiscriminate. indifferent.

Don't do this when I'm in Perth sweetie or I'll :hug: you to death. I'll come over into that corner, lift your chin up, and sit smack down on your lap ;) I swear I will!

You've got all of us, and even we feel like sitting in our corners sometimes..... But.... *pulls Michael into her dark little nook* we're never really by ourselves ^_^ capische?

Not up to your usual stuff mike, frankly im fucking dissapointed. You know my shitty monitor cant handle that huge rez and shrinking it down doesnt look good. Im happy your trying new styles, but i think your just being lazy you sad sack o crap.

i know you can do better, you know you can, so lets just stop pissing around and unload the good stuff eh?

dont make me stab you again.
