This reminds me of fifth grade. My brother had just died and I was trying to get back into the rhythm of school and being around people without crying my eyes out. It was a very difficult time for me, and this feels almost like a picture of my soul from that time. That the stitches in the mask are almost exactly where he hit his head on the windshield ... I'm gonna cry if I keep looking at this.

It makes me feel sorry for the person inside the mask, this is really good piece of artwork...I'm trying to do a sort of "puppet" creature in the same form of my original character "Drac" based on sadness so it has given some inspo, thank you!

I like this emotive piece. It reminds me of a cross between a ski mask and Abe from Abe's Odysee.

Yeah, have you played the new one (stranger's wrath) on Xbox. Different, but alot better than previous titles even though it was largely ignored.:)
