"Pain illustrated".

this is real cool. the colors are pretty awesome and the hands look fantastic! now go get some oils and sell paintings for reals!

very emotive. it looks like Munch stole Cezanne's palette in an effort to make a being who didn't look dead or ethereal.

I really really love this

your style is quite unusual and equally as intruiging... i must say i look forward to each piece of yours and im particularly fond of this one..

I must say you have illustrated it well :) and I very much agree with embo's comment.

Thanks for the comments;my color-paint-systems are still pretty screwy,I think.Yeah,I wanted the person to look SICK and full of emotional pain;I realize now,sooner or later our inner selves leak out into our painting style;which probably accounts for the "distortion"of the left hand on the face(besides not having a model.) But,yeah,the pain is distorting the person,too.

Super emotive, from the quirky but highly appropriate color choices to the powerful strokes. Don't need to tell you you nailed this one. :>

I agree, so much emotion is conveyed in those rough brush strokes. you use colors very well too :D
very impressive drawing! :D

Extremely emotive, pose reminds me of Baroque style paintings, they had lots of women/guys wailing and throwing themselves on the floor.
If you are interested in furthering your figure art Google a guy called Andrew Loomis, famous American figure artist who did loads of tutorial books which are now all available (legally) in PDF format from many art sites (I have them all..:))
