sad angst by jacobsteel sad angst by jacobsteel
commissioned work. a magazine wanted something to illustrate a really sad poem. however, this was rejected. they thought it was too dark and violent, so I went on and did... "happy angst" [link]

They probably rejected it because it's too good, and therefore to difficult for an ordinary magazine manager to understand ;) I like the foot the best.

ah. beautiful. thank you! :-)

btw, the feet are really strange. but for some reason I think I have less problems drawing feet than hands. Hands, man. They're tough!

no, sorry. no copy. it was in Swedish as well. the poem recollected some bad stuff that had happened and the editors wanted an illustration that pulled more towards the positive.

very sinister! Too dark? Bah! You can never be too dark! Really well done, a lot of negative energy in thgis piece, if you like!

you're much too kind... ;-)

(a little Photoshop twisting of ink drawings can do amazing things. I took just a tad of
the spherize filter on already curved lines. try it. you might like it. :-) )
