grace for the falling by b33lz3bub grace for the falling by b33lz3bub
'..can't see the sun. not a star. can't tell if it's night or day actually. sky all around me is painted with thick reds and gritty browns, i'm not sure if it's dirt, or blood, or a mix of the two consuming me. Either way i can't move, my uniform is so heavy, and my face feels like cracked wood.

..i've suddenly noticed as i regain some feeling in my nerves that i've lost all the fingers on my left hand, and my right seems to be holding something.. i...


he falls into a state of dizzying stupor and is eventually carried away by the sun, moon and stars at his feet. the fire, ash, dirt and blood surrounding him are lost and the beautiful scene ends. how it will be missed

Rather lovely, in a dark way. The colors and detail combined with a lack of detail make everything go together really well.

I can't put my finger on it (which will make this whole comment superficial) but I really like the image. Perhaps it's because you have a story / peice of writing to go with it, which is my thing more then the actual art. In any case beautiful and well done work.
[Also - I have the same sketchbook ... except I use mine for pen and ink bits of writing and not actual art. It's nice to see someone using it for art and not junk ... ]

Damn dude! This work makes me friggen sad and depressed, but at the same time it's got me glued to the screen. I'm looking at this and i'm thinking "that's what i want!" i gotta learn more from looking at your work man. This has got so much simple color and it's almost thoughtlesly blended together...but it works so well together it just had to come from pure insparation and expression.

Kudos again man, i gotta add to my :+fav:'s (and also one of the top 5 all time DA favorites...yeah, yeah, no section for it but i keep track of that shit in my brain)

i just got back from a holiday in melbourne and i'm keen to work on that colab and finish it off so we'll meet up this week sometime or something
i was sitting on the plane and this arrogant cunt next to me was hogging up all the elbow space and just generally being a rude cunt with a stick up his arse. i noticed he kept preying n shit so i whipped out our colab and started working on it infront of him just to give him the shits
hehehe, i dunno i found it funny
