So this was originally going to be a Valentine's Day picture but I didn't finish it in time because it was a last minute thought and then work stuff got in the way and then the deadline passed so I just procrastinated and neglected it for ages until the other day.
Normally I don't give a fuck about V-day but everyone else was drawing happy stuff so a mixture of me being depressed at the time and my screwed up sense of humour made me decide to be ironic and draw something completely fucking depressing. Copypasta time:It's basically someone who feels ugly and rejected in themselves, and they're desperately searching for someone to accept them and love them for who they are, but in their desperation they make themselves too easy to get (the heart being torn from the chest and held out on a piece of string in the picture) and in doing so they're leaving themselves completely open to the manipulative and grasping hands of people who would want to use and hurt them. But they don't see this because they're blind (the lack of eyes) in their desperation to simply be accepted and loved.
Thought I'd try and do an actual painting for a change, I used the same method that I used for those robot designs I uploaded yesterday, however here I actually put some time into everything. It was still a relatively quick piece, nice and easy and relaxed method that I'll probably use again. I wouldn't mind doing some more art that has meaning behind it, it's interesting to work on rather than just more shitty dragons everywhere.
