Another spellbinding Gothic piece, first impression is that this is related to「The Macabre fav.me/d6e8pm1 in parallel themes, definitely in colour scheme & in universe but its the sense of desparation & namesake misery which makes this work a stark contrast.

 

While the girl's outfit is slick with shawl of vinyl-like ebony fabric (yet another great instance where your luminous copic texturework shines again!) it does leave a lot to be desired with near mundane streamlined design. Still its hard to imagine a tortured soul(?) rocking a elaborate ensemble in time of pain and it helps the rest of the unique dynamics & structure of motifs in the background to work its magic.

 

The protrusion of metallic smoooth spikes allow for a sharply felt still darkly stylish expression of pain both internal & physical, and the angles in which they jut out (I know it seems random still there is a sense of order here) seem to have a wary element, leaving the lily flowers intact save for one unfortunate petal near the girl. There seems to be a "message" implied through this, intended or not it provokes some thought. The streaks of white matter are eerie with both ethereal & material feel, symbolic of blood or bursts of energy within darkness, its splattered nature also gives this art a raw, abstract touch while the crisp linework is epitome of smoothened form & foundation. :star::heart::star:

 

This is a nice way to explore further your Gothic variant of your art-style and a great example of having various imagery all tell a story rather than just be ornate decor to enhance the artwork.

Thank you so much for this comment. :')
Haha it is similar to The Macabre. I think I just had an inspiration overload in the subjects displayed in both.

Understandable about the outfit and glad it comes off as a vinyl fabric! :hug:
Haha yes, the whole piece is basically a message and the piercing of the flowers is no exception. I'm happy you can see the meaning in my work and that a lot of it is put together for a reason. 
Your comments really mean a lot and I absolutely love reading them. :heart: You're a great writer and they really motivate me. 

Thanks again! :hug: Hope you have a great day :)

You're Most Welcome friend, as always!

I'm still floored at how you can realize so much texture vibrance with Copic-works as marker strokes require the right amount of pressure, degree & precise angles, you really need to know what you want before applying the colour. Also I'm not that much of a good writer as I don't like writing alot to be honest (My University degree already demands it too much) but I always want to be specific with any reply.

I hope to someday hone my colouring skills as well (I'm slowly getting used to coloured pencils and I can definitely learn from your way with highlights & surface texturing), keep it up! :tighthug:

Gwahh thank you so much! :hug: Haha I may not know what to do with EVERY stroke, but a lot of it is pretty planned ;P
Haha well I believe you're an amazing writer *A* always amazed when I see what you say next.

Hope to help people improve and to improve myself as well! :thumbsup:
