Daily Deviation

Given 2010-07-06
Knives Never Bring Good News, acrylics on board from ~cassandracomplex80.
He says if we burn up the roof from above us
We surely will see the light and maybe more
But like the burnt out hooker
We'll only see down to the floor
All we know is that we're here until we are set free...

This is the second painting I have seen in the past couple days that reminds me of a demon that I see in my dreams all the time. This is very cool.

hi really good work cassandra,nice to see you using a three quarter portrait format as most of your work is from fully frontal pov as i said in some in other post to you, check out the dynamic compositioanl approach in ashely woods images,if you can get some of this diversity into your vocabulary you will really expaned your expressive capacity.Variations in point of view and scale really extend the expressive possibilities of work.

The reds in the background works really well with the figure. As for the figure, it is well executed. The small horns on his head are pretty awesome.

Don't know if you'll take this as a compliment or not, but this reminds me of Punisher covers a few years back. Don't remember the artist, I wanna say Tim Bradstreet, but not sure. Anyway, very cool.
