Sad Angel number 6,254,957,314 by SteveArgyle Sad Angel number 6,254,957,314 by SteveArgyle
If you follow my updates, you may expect a joke here. You may expect jibes and cuts and self-deprecation raining like so many misshapen cartoon cats and dogs. But no. There is nothing funny about this painting. Just look at her running mascara. Look at her sad molting wings. Just look at all that... black. To borrow eloquence from the poets of rock: Blacker than the blackest black, times infinity. How much more black could it be? The answer is none. None more black. That's right. This painting is serious. Seriously. If you laugh, baby Jesus gets beaten with a fat-man's belt. And all that skin-grease and salt make the welts sting extra bad.

You're not laughing. Good. But it won't be enough to get you into Heaven. Not after what you've done...

Hi Steve

A friend and I is currently designing a "perfect" draft set in our oppinion that we will be playing with our friends, I was wondering if I can use this art on one of the cards?

It is a completely non commercial, friends only project that probably will never be made public :)

- Nick, SioxerNic@hotmail.com

PS: If you wanna see the card after it's done (If you give me permission) feel free to ask, and I will definately show you, and if you want to see the set when it's done, go right ahead.

PS: I will post this on your wall to, I'm not sure how much you read your comments.

I beg to differ in saying that this could be much blacker. For instance, all of the spots that aren't black could be made black to make it a completely black painting. Or she could be a black person, even so black that she looked like a drow.

i feel like this is an incredibly well done peice....accept one glaring defect in my opinion.

the Tribal border thing up in the left corner is very subbtractive to the peice.
removing this would make the peice stronger.

~~ This is stunningly so correct. I cannot imagine the depths of sadness that an angel could feel. And what small moment could precipitate that. Great art I stumbled across and am now going to watch you. What depth in the piece and your comments. ~~

always,
katti
