Amor vincit... by Himmapaan Amor vincit... by Himmapaan
'Conquer' has a number of definitions.


Tinted charcoal, pastels, Conté, ink and gouache on recycled paper, approximately 195 x 278mm.

__________

ETA: 10th March, 2012.

Thank you so very much for the Daily Deviation.

As a number of questions have surfaced, for those unfamiliar with my work, it may be worth pointing out that the crane is a self-portrait. Although a glance at the first page of comments would have also explained this. ;)

Aah... This... Is rather frightening, actually. o-o; Very jarring picture, but nice all the same. It's different, and so detailed...

I just noticed the wings on the little satyr boy's back.

Gratz on DD. Now this is something I might put up on my wall. That is, if I had room on my walls ... *looks around* now that I think of it, I didn't really have much wall to begin with... D:
Beautiful work, though. :3

Oh I'm so happy to see this one received a DD!!! I know this illustration is very personal to you, to see this much sadness and pain in it really moves me to tears. Of all your works, this one speaks most to me (I really hope you don't mind me saying that). Probably because I can relate to it. And still can. It is amazing how you are able to express own feelings in your illustrations, isn't that incredible painful in the process? I wonder: does it actually help healing - or make it worse (at least for a while)? Just like listen to the same sad piece of music while suffering, crying, until the numb feeling sets in?

Hopefully it comforts you to know, you are not alone. May the shadows crossing your heart disappear very soon.

I hope life treats you well :hug:
