dead tree by brokenlink dead tree by brokenlink
another of my Dir en grey song-inspired pics. I drew the pencil sketch of this when the PV was released, only got back to colouring it today =w= the original sketch is still in my scraps. I initially intended to draw out the line arts again on the computer buuut decided i liked the rough pencilly look more yup~.
dead tree is such a gorgeous song ** the guitar riff.. :heart: yum. it's just so powerful *drools all over it* The atmosphere really jumps out at you aswell. I wasn't muchly impressed by the PV intitally but i -LOVE- sepia tones~ *w* so it was bound to grow on me =w= the only thing that really pisses me off is that girl can't fucking act D:< diru on the other hand, are so awesome they can even survive explosions D

wait, wait.. i know people are going to ask; yes that is an arm (the bones of) int the pot. If you've watched the PV it might gove you some insight and you know.. the song in general. maybe. I wasn't trying to illustrate the song or the PV, this is just an image that came to mind.

xD i didn't realise it was a hand in the pot until you said so, i just thought "it's a dead tree" but i guess that goes to show my imagination, or maybe how tired i am . . . .

first day back at school, tiring and boring, never a good combination.

i like this, i don't know why, but murray the talking skull from The Curse of Monkey Island just feels to me like he belongs there, maybe that's murray's long-lost arm in that pot :heart: loves

Oh, sorry, I didn't mean to offend you. :(

Don't take me wrong. I didn't say that because it's a macabre picture. No way (and I don't think it belongs there). It's only my opinion and how I see the picture. T_T

brokenlink Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2006
no no.. i didn't mean it that way xD; i like macabre art, and i hate putting my art in the 'anime' section. so whenever i think i can get away with putting it in another category i do it xDD
i'm really glad you see it like that! ^-^/
