I’m tired of trying, sick of crying, I know I’ve been smiling, but inside I’m dying.
This is a complete recreation of an artwork I created back in February of 2009 during a very deep depression. I reworked the scene once in late 2011 during another deep depression but realized it still needed some fixing when I gave it another look here recently. So even though I’m not terribly depressed at this particular moment in time, I was still able to make this dark artwork even darker with some added details and enhancements. It’s a little frighting how easy it is for me to get into the mindset to create such an artwork as this.
In case you can’t tell, the character is writing a suicide note… thus the “giving up” title. I wanted the scene to be dimly lit like it’s happening at night with only a single light or two turned on. I did this because it always seems to be at night when I contemplate such things.
