A disease of the mind by AF-studios A disease of the mind by AF-studios

This was fun :aww: I had some problems with my tablet so some parts are a bit messy cuz I worked with a mouse,but it turned out ok I think.


"What's wrong with me?
Why do I feel like this?
I'm going crazy now

No more gas, in the red, can't even get it started
Nothing heard, nothing said, can't even speak about it
On my life, on my head, don't wanna think about it
Feels like I'm going insane, yeah

It's a thief in the night to come and grab you
It can creep up inside you and consume you
A disease of the mind, it can control you
It's too close for comfort

Put on your pretty lies, you're in the city of wonder
Ain?t gon? play nice, watch out you might just go under
Better think twice, your train of thought will be altered
So if you must falter be wise

Your mind?s in disturbia, it's like the darkness is light
Disturbia, am I scaring you tonight?
Disturbia, ain?t used to what you like
Disturbia, disturbia

:music: Rihanna-Disturbia

This is a beautiful, cohesive image. The use of muted sepia tones helps create a mood of mental decay, tying the young figure into the desolate world surrounding her. The skin tones have life, yet they blend so well with the surroundings. Critiques are not critiques without constructive criticism, so even though I feel it's unnecessary, I'm compelled to offer it. The theme of a disturbed mind could be carried out even further with the figure trying harder to either isolate herself or wrest herself from her reality. Still, I enjoy this piece and you are a very talented 18-year old!

I LOVE this! The vines and hands pulling her into the earth, or keeping her in the same depressed experiences!

I love the colors, so subdued and it just makes the viewer feel the sadness and pain of the model!

I do think maybe the hand on the right middle of the bottom would have been better suited had you made it grab her ankle... to show her struggle.

I always love looking at your work, you are becoming such a wonderful artist!! I hope that helps!

Overall though, I am in awe of your skills!!!

Great Work!! Keep it up!

This artwork is so emotionally moving.
gypsyfoxdancer Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2011
I Like how the hand on the right is just not caring. It is like she no longer cares so the hand is really just there.
gypsyfoxdancer Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2011
That is really good. The title of course gives it a real delusional feeling. Kind of how I feel my mind tricks me sometimes. :)

What I can I say my lady.You have already heard so many compliments then please bear with me too.Your work is very thought provoking.When I first saw this work(without having read the lyrics of the song dusturbia)I got the impression of a lone girl in this big bad world.I got that imprssion because of the pose of the girl and how one hand is climbing out of the ground to touch her.There are other hands on the ground groping about trying to find her.I also love the variation of colour in your work.Its awesome:)

So dramatic...

Would have needed blood... blood symbolizes mental energy loss... and the two parts of her left leg don't seem to line up.

Other than that, I love it. ^^
