Depressed by AkaAlias Depressed by AkaAlias
This is my contest entry for: 'Inspirations - A deviantART Contest' (Plz watch fullview for all the detail!!!)

Quite a depressing sight, right? Well, it's called 'depressed' for a reason. But this will become clear to you as you read on :).

Inspiration:

My motives and inspiration for this digital painting are kind of hard to describe, but i'll try. Over the years, i've noticed that when certain people are depressed and stressed out a lot, some of them tend to 'cling on' to other people who in their turn get depressed. I've seen it happen with a few, well.. i wouldn't say friends, but more like.. people i know (who's names will remain unknown for their privacy). What basicly happend was that one of these persons was depressed. In order to try and feel better (let's call that person 'bunny' as in the painting) 'bunny' tried to seek comfort with another person (let's make that person 'teddy' as in the painting), 'teddy' got depressed because 'bunny' clang on to 'teddy' so much in order to feel better. 'teddy' was also depressed now and got attached to yet another person who also got depressed.. And so on..
I'm not saying this happens to everybody, but i guess some people are much more sensitive for these kind of things..

Explanation:

The cute, yet creepy little bunny is very depressed, this depression is reprisented with 'the shadow' that is always searching for an other victim. In this case it is the little Teddybear who's only trying to help our depressed bunny... But as you can see, 'the shadow' or 'depression' is already trying to get a grip on poor little Teddy who is also becomming more and more depressed. Both are getting more and more confined in 'shadow' and soon 'the shadow' will be all around them.

Now, the only thing that's left to do for 'bunny and teddy' is to find anonther person, to bring back some 'light' in their lives! If this person is very easily depressed, then the light will fade once more, and he will also be confined by shadow!

The lesson behind it all:
If you try to be happy with yourself and with your life, even tough it's hard and 'shadows' cover your soul sometimes, the light will remain! And will shine brighter then ever once the depression is overcome!

SO SHINE!! :D :D

(Any comments would be greatly apreciated!)

hmm... [notes]

love the backbone pertruding ..
something feels missing to give it a softer and yet more someber feel
.. i think maybe blue shading and some reddish blotches for contrast and feel

here's an example of what i mean... [link] .. couldn't find what i wanted .. but that's kinda explaining it as far as depth of color and the 3 main colors.. ^^:
