I had a dream over a decade ago and it has stuck with me because it was so vivid and frankly scared me.  This looks like you have taken the scene out of my head and drew it.  In my dream I was in a bathroom just like this jars and all, sitting in the tub full of poison from the jars and the tags from the jars had by that point worn off and were floating in the tub with me.  I was just sitting there watching my cousin standing in front of the sink slicing her skin off with a sharpened eye pencil and through the open door I could see these evil little grey elf type creatures carrying huge silver trays filled with my family's body parts to the oven.  It's funny that after all this time the dream still scares me.  I just wanted to share this with you for some weird reason and because art invokes different emotions so just wanted to tell you mine.

But now I want to ask...
Selenmariene Featured By Owner May 14, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Why is so many jars in the bathroom?
afiendishglee Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012   General Artist
I love everything about this. So curious to know what it's all about...but then, I sort of like not knowing! Eerie, seedy, and beautiful.
LitlMomma Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2012
Please tell me that's not what I think it is in the trash can! lol Seriously though... I love this... and I have no idea of course what the story is about yet but I love the fact that she has her clothes on in the bathtub... this has a very howard hughes feel to it and I am very interested! Great piece!

This is a breathtaking illustration, any word on the story's progress? I've bookmarked this image and I check it weekly in hope you'll post some update on it :love:
EddBane Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2009
Ooh, thats really amazing.
Love the cracks and rust, the whole mood too.
The only thing I'm missing is the distortion in the jars and water, the world looks a whole lot cooler through a jar after all.
Otherwise all thumbs up.
MadameMomeWrath Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2009
I love the cracks in the tiles and the rustings on the walls, toiletseat, and bathtub. Amazing. I've always been a big fan of 'environment' in art -- really paying attention to the details needed to convey just how and where a character lives. It breathes so much more life into a piece.

Kudos. :heart:
Cometa-Guavaberry Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2009  Professional General Artist
The transparency of the jars and of the water is very well done

And the scene has many things to tell

Also amazing technique
9wingedxdreamer Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2009  Student

Kazifer Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2009
I seriously looked at this for about five minutes straight, there's so much to take in. Everything, the perspective, the colors, the simple lines and details...everything is WON-DER-FUL.
