How do I feel now? by skulldude How do I feel now? by skulldude
I drew this as a sketch when I first had broken up with my ex... I know this is a recent theme but honestly I was working on this well before the shitty e-mail I got. Just forced me to finish it...

The ghostly figure from the smoke is my torment from wanting a feeling I can't get, much like the vice of smoking... pointless... So, it's not an image of her directly... just a feeling I had but lost...

I know this image has been done many times before but at the time when I was smoking heavily it made sense. I don't smoke anymore now so don't worry! :p

Painted in PS CS4

Enjoy!

I love the symbolism. Very well made. My only criticism are that the eyes are too dark which made me first think he was wearing sunglasses. I also think it'd be better if the girl was connected directly from the trail of smoke from the cigarette.

Yeah I'll keep this in mind while I work on the larger version (still... taking forever to finish!).
Thanks for your comment! :3

I gotta say this is absolutely amazing. My girlfriend broke up with me a while back, a buddy of mine linked this to me. It just hit me. I told him how I really wanted it like in my room. He told me he read somewhere you were working on a larger version of it. Any truth to that? If so, Awesome.

Yeah I'm just having troubles enlarging it but it should be up today/tomorrow as a print.

Sorry you're going through a break up, they suck balls... I'd like to say something that wasn't clichéd here but whole deal in and out of a relationship is one. SO, just do what you do best and fuck anyone else who says otherwise! :3

Yeah man, it's been tough, but I'll be alright. I feel like you probably get that a lot. So don't worry About it.

But yeah, I'm really excited to see this as a full sized print.

nice! love the feeling in this, some of the best drawings come from the worst experiences. the fun part is someday you meet someone and think "Thank god me and my ex broke up or i never would have found this person"
