Desensitized by Vulpessentia Desensitized by Vulpessentia
"Something kind of sad about the way things tend to come to be
Desensitized to everything
What became of subtlety?

How can this mean anything to me
If I really don't feel a thing at all?"

Inspired by lyrics from this song: [link]

This was expanded upon from a character design I did earlier drawing. I don't normally do this dark of art, but I guess I have just been in the mood recently.

I've just been getting into Tool. Aenima was the first album I listened to last night. I must have listened to it 10 times by now. Didn't know you made this.

Yep, that was quite a while ago.  They are by far and  away my favorite band.  Lateralus is probably their best album, but Aenima is great too.  Their newest one, 10,000 days, has a different feel to it, but still really really good.  I hope you like what you hear! ^^

"Something has to change; Undeniable dilemma; Boredom's not a burden any should bear...; Constant, over... stimulation numbs me; but I would not want you, any other way."

Hope I did the citing right.

It's ok, I like dark arts, but I think that with your skill you could do that 20% cooler :]

It's dark, it's disturbing, it's actually kinda creepy but it's also beautiful, and I love it :love:
Honestly the way, You dimmed the colors, and lightened up both eyes, and these black tattoos is so perfect, I can't stop staring at this :eyepopping:
But more important, than technical stuff is what the picture conveys, and this one leaves such a powerful impact on viewer... It's just great.

Honestly? Cool isn't the first word, that comes to mind... no, it doesn't even fit to this art ^^;
But hey, maybe I just look at it in the wrong way, or something... let's see what 90's Kid thinks...

Dude, so cool. I love your style, some of the best stuff I have seen. One suggestion, but you know, whatever you think, Do like a light blue and yellow arua around the balloon cutie mark. Just a thought.
