Portrait of A Dying Atheist by xdisenchantedx92 Portrait of A Dying Atheist by xdisenchantedx92
I'm super pleased with how this came out, but I wish I had a mattress sized scanner, so that you could see it better. This picture is absolutely butchering the colors and contrast. D: D: D: Oh hey, look at the evolution of this painting at my lj. Acrylic on cardboard, 33x24 (ish).

Edit 11/19/09: Better picture! ;D

Well I used to stand for something
But forgot what that could be
There's a lot of me inside you
Maybe you're afraid to see

Well I used to stand for something
Now I'm on my hands and knees
Trading in my god for this one
and he signs his name with a capital G

Do you by chance read the online comic Red String? Or at the least heard the Chinese myth of the red string of fate?


I absolutely adore this piece - the way it looks like she's laying on a bed, but a universe. =D Lovely! It still looks amazing, even if cameras do ruin pictures of paintings. ><
