midnight opens it's arms to me by dholms midnight opens it's arms to me by dholms
i know.
it's a piece of shit drawing.
but it's heartfelt.
actually,...it's even deeper than that.
and i know.
some of you understand.
you don't gotta comment on it.
but if you feel it.
that's enough.
that's more than enough.
just feel it.
and then let it go.

if you can.

reference: chris cornell circa euphoria morning.

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-02-27
Amidst the haze, its length and breadth furthermore accentuates the notion of rejuvenation, a juxtaposition of weight at the heart giving rise to a solemn, dignified triumph. Please enjoy midnight opens it's arms to me by `dholms. ( Suggested by wroth and Featured by snowmask )

Wow, This is an amazing piece. Looking at it, I feel the mans misery or feelings of giving up...In my opinion, the black cat really adds to the piece because of its positive correlation with bad luck. You did a good job at making the man look realistic..the only thing I might suggest is for you to blend out your tones little bit more. However, that is all subjective. It was a good choice to do the piece in black and white..i think it adds to the mood. I'd love to see more of your art, keep up the good work!

this is a very strong piece, the pencils and tones are spot on, your work reminds me of an artist I know named scott Hampton. and I see a lil jeff jones in your work. at first the cat was kind of a distraction to me but the longer I look at this, the cat does belong as he looks like he,s standings guard over this troubled lad. I love the creases in the t-shirt and bed sheet also the creases in the pants are so light you barely seen them. a very nice touch. I thought maybe the background could had a lil faded detail. but the texier really make this look like a dream perhaps. something sinister. great shading and blending. on this it really not much to inprove here. great job.

I like the whole image, the cat seems a bit darker than all of it. I feel the scene in my bones, but the cats gaze cuts deeper than that. :)

I saw this picture what seems like centuries ago, and I got that feeling from it-- it just clicked, you know? I could feel how much was put into it, not just effort but soul. Now finding it here, I understand why :) Your work is always so beautiful!

I really mean it, too. When I was in about 3rd grade, my best friend was the computer, and all I had on it were pictures that my mother had saved from the Internet, a photo editing program, and a word processor. This particular piece was one of the pictures, and it always inspired me. I couldn't bring myself to tinker with it like I had with others, because, by God, it's already perfect. Lol, and it inspired me to create some of my favorite male characters in my old stories. When I saw it on your page, it was like seeing an old friend for the first time in years.

This is very beautiful, mate, and the cat's a tad creepy. It's got a hazy edge to it but the haze suits it greatly. Well done on the DD, you definitely deserve it.
