Broken by nightshadevalentine Broken by nightshadevalentine
This is one quarter of Funeral for the Individual



I feel that this piece was the most potent of my major work.
It can mean so many things.

I was sick of the original concept art (which is tacky and lame) being in my gallery without a deviation of the actual artwork to juxtapose it against.

I'm sorry about the poor quality - it looks all blurred when there is actually an immense amount of detail in this thing.

Made with black ball point pen
original piece of paper is approximately 32" x 24"

Art (c) me *nightshadevalentine

THANKS SO MUCH!!!
I've never had an artwork become this popular before!
:heart:
I don't understand how it happened, but I appreciate it nonetheless! XD

I feel a strong connection with this simple concept of being broken as an individual. There are certain few in this whole wide world that are damaged and unseeingly wounds in multiple levels, whether it be physical, mental, emotional, or psychological. Furthermore, the potency of this art piece transcends more than broken parts, it states that the broken can be mend and healed with simply being there and holding that broken piece with affection and kindness.

Too bad that the majority of the world refuse to see this.

Hmmm, I don't really like any reproduction of this image, but if it's for your own practice and it won't be displayed as your own idea, I am fine with it.
