I am pretty sure this happened to most of you too: out of the blue you see the picture in your mind, and it's so real and it's right there. You see all the characters and shapes and details, and for some reason it's so important to you that you can't think of anything else, and you have no other choice but to put it on paper. Here's one of those - "...now, when it's all quiet..." I am not posting it in My Artworks, I think you understand.

"...now, when it's all quiet..."

For those concerned: I've been dealing with stress and mental issues for quite a long period of my life lately and am receiving professional help. :)

Oh Sam, I'm sorry mate but I am laughing right now, not at you or your art, but at your comment, lol. Your piece came together nicely, not quite what I imagined when I first saw it in WIPs but cool nonetheless. Yes, I can see why you didn't post it in your artworks folder. But art is meant to be our safe way of expressing whatever we are feeling (and escaping reality) and this is no different, and art, well good art is meant to make people feel, you've done that. It really is pretty cool mate!  All the best, I am very intrigued to see what you draw next.

Snowmen! Just started, but it's gonna be "quicky"

Cool, Snowmen just in time for Christmas, I can't wait. All the best, and we all need to do quicky ones, they can't all the masterpieces we spend weeks on.
