She sits alone, wrapped in the arms of melancholy.

That's so strange but also beautiful. and manipulated so smoothly and naturally I had to close up on the picture to check there was actually something unusual/digitally reworked. I was like *mildly puzzled face* "How many arms do people have on each side, again?"

I love it, as usual. But this has a different feeling then most of your art does. I like the choice of manipulation.. it makes me sad.. in a good way

Oh, lovely! The added arms look very natural (I'm not, however, sure if her shadow's reflecting the same pose; hard to tell, though, it being a shadow). Very dark.

Thanks for commenting on my gallery.

It disturbs me, how disturbing I find this, and most of your work.

I don't know what else to say.
Keep making my nightmares.... perhaps I'll stop having them.

Cheers.

Damn, you're good. and how did you know I'd just *adore* this one? Hehe. What I love most is her arms, and the shadowing on her shoulders to her back. Very realistic.

Great work... Gives me a spidery feel because of the shoulder joints on the lower arms. Bravo.

This is strangely different from your usual work... darker, I suppose. It has a more artsy feeling than the usual 'real' thing you have in most of your pieces.

Woot! New stuff from Quaid!

She looks really great! :) (Except possibly for the lack of shadow cast by the lower arms down the side of her torso. ;) )

This has such a dark feel...it reminds me of how I felt yesterday. I was just so lonely, and alone, and ended up crying myself to sleep. That's something I haven't done in a long time...

Anyway, wonderful manip, as always.

Quaid strikes again! With every piece the word 'freaky' comes to mind. Even now, I can continue looking at it and discover more details (such as the hand).

Brilliant work as usual. Do you do such graphic design for a living?
