ABSOLUTELY AMAZING AND HEARTFELT.

I love the very "chicken-scratch" style you'd captured here, at first it seems to stem from immaturity and a vague knowledge of how to draw, but it's definitely a very deliberate style you've portrayed. It's perhaps the most nuanced expression of charcoal? is it? I've ever seen. The slight awkward smudges around the solitary figure, evince a poignant recollection of wistfulness.

The acrostic poem itself is typed in an ordinary fashion, nonetheless the use of the two contrasting fonts really brings out the message of the poem. The larger letters, round-ended and capitalised, serves as emphasis for the word, "DEATH" The smaller semi-cursive font explicates an astoundingly intriguing prose-like poem which, may seem completely amateur and pathetically written, but is actually perhaps an even better exploration of death than Shakespeare's Greatest Tragedies.

A common misconception with art is that you have to actually use a great composition, obviously this piece subverts such trifling expectations with putting the poem to the far left so that the audience cannot decide exactly what to focus on. It is also often thought that artworks should have actual effort put into them, no such pervasive ideal is present here! The piece isn't even cropped properly! Nor does the shading create any sort of depth of field, nor does the figure have any sense of proportion. Effort, as exemplified by this wonderful, striking piece, is but an artless concept.

Best work I've seen all year, a definite 5 out of 5 stars.

Hey, to those of you who are hatin' on this picture because it got attention:
I know it may seem unfair that this got attention and not something "better", but the artist can't really help that. All the artist did was create something, and getting a bunch of crap is kind of discouraging. Besides, there's always room to grow, so don't judge :) Just think how it would feel to be on the receiving side of some of these comments. I'm not trying to blindly defend the artist, I just thought I should say that just because this picture made it onto the front page doesn't mean the world is going to end, so lighten up a little c:

I tried reading the poem over and over again, but it doesn't seem to have any deep meaning like people claim it to have. I tried finding symbolism, metaphors, or any meaning that could lie between the lines, but I couldn't find anything. No offense, but it seems like you didn't try to have any symbolism and just chose what sounded cool and related to the word "DEATH". I think you should have put a little more thought into the poem itself and not focus entirely on spelling "DEATH". Think about it, the sentence "Damned for eternity afraid of the very life that sent you to hell" doesn't really have any meaning. Sure, it sounds cool, but there's no poetic meaning behind it if it doesn't spell out "DEATH" with some of the letters. :P

I also think you could have chosen a different font, it's obviously a dark theme but the font is rather on the light side. (and is also the one every single book in Skyrim is written in)

basically, this poem is about my opinion on death (apart from the fact that im not really sure if hell exists) ut in this poem im just saying it does, it is kinda vague, im saying that life gives you to death (which is when u die) then death may give u to either heaven or hell, and since i kinda wanted a dark theme, i chose hell, then if u take the first sentence of the poem and put it after the second it might make more sense, because once ur in hell, ur damned for eternity.
i did kinda play around with it a bit so i dont blame u if u couldnt figure out what it meant.
hope that wasnt a too confusung explanation.

I understand your explanation, but I don't think the idea you talked about fits the poem. "Damned for eternity", sure that makes sense, but "Afraid of the very life"? What's that supposed to mean? I understand now that you mean that life gives you to death, but I still don't understand why you're "afraid of the very life". Aren't you supposed to be afraid of the afterlife? How can you be afraid of life when you're dead? I've analyzed quite a few poems, but no matter how many times I try to analyze this, I can't find any meaning behind it, sorry.

i suppose thats what normal people would think, but like i said, it was my opinion and im more afraid of life than the afterlife.

But if you're dead, you wouldn't be afraid of life anymore, because... you would be dead. :P Meh, it's your poem though, I just found it confusing s'all.

Excuse me.
In my opinion, this is a rather average poem, linked to a more or less bad picture.
I do not understand, why people put this on front page.
There's so much better (and most unseen) stuff on dA, and this gets the attention instead.
What the hell is wrong with you, people?

No problem, I do not blame you, as you're not responsible for what's happening to your art.
It's the people I blame, as well because I believe that wrong feedback won't bring you further.

You can download some cool fonts online. I might have gone with something a little more elegant, but also with a serif. Probably something that tied in a bit better with the image.
