Answer Me by TinyMintyWolf Answer Me by TinyMintyWolf
"Answer me when I call to You,
O my righteous God.
Give me relief from my distress;
be merciful to me and hear my prayer"

- Psalm 4:1

A work in progress which will likely never be finished. I think I wanna leave it the way it is instead of polishing up the details, I like the rough and edgy look :3 I wanted to capture that feeling of utter despair, but at the same time I want to portray that there IS hope. God will always answer when you cry out to Him, and I kinda tried to represent that with the little beam of light at the top. It's really comforting to know that God cares <3

I LOVE the dark color scheme (or lack of color :shrug:) Something about that just captures the very idea of hopelessness and utter despair.

The sketchy-ness makes me think of how life can be so crazy we feel as if we`re in an incomplete and shifting reality.

I also like the dark clouds creeping around the girl, another metaphor for hopelessness- Cloudy-ness, nothing makes sense, purpose can be distorted or our placement in the world is lost.
The type of text you used also really sets the theme well while also directing the viewer to the light at the top.

Overal, I just love, LOVE this piece. It definitly differs from your other pieces which is kind of refreshing (but at the same time I still like your other stuff alot too.)
I didn`t give it a perfect score because I felt that it could have gone somewhere "more". I`m not ignoring the fact you said it was a work in progress, actually it feels very completed and unlacking. I`m just thinking something (without knowing exactly what) could have been altered to add alot more to it.
Ehh...but you can ignore that really. I love this picture SO MUCH!! The emotional pull is just, wow.

Keep it up!

Amazing! What beauty and poetry! This is so relatable and very sincere. You don't sugarcode things and I really like that about you. You say it the way it is even if it's hard to say. I can really see God working through you and your art. Keep up the amzing work!

This...is...awesome. The whole thing is fantastic. You can just feel the sense of agony and sorrow as she is about to me engulfed by the darkness surrounding her. And yet you feel that there is hope, ever so faintly with the sun's rays penetrating the darkness.
