If you suffer from depression, anything that makes you feel has to the most important thing in your life, because it’s the only thing that can save you.
There is a lot of symbolism in this piece: She’s holding the famous tragedy and comedy theater masks and is looking towards the tragic one, meaning she’s leaning towards depression. There’s a wind-up key connected to her heart, something exterior has to keep her going. There are marionette strings controlling her, she has no control over her own emotions or actions.
I first created an artwork like this back in July of 2011 but decided to go back and create an improved version since both my skills and tools have improved since then. This is one of my favorite artworks/concepts so I want it to be the best it can be. I mainly replaced a few of the models with better versions, enhanced all of the materials, improved the lighting, added more detail, and did a much better job of postwork. I’m extremely pleased with how this new version turned out.
