"Heroin Addict" 2/3 part of the "Thralldom Series" depicting a young woman with a drug addiction, how it can take over your life. Done with fine-point pen on 8.5x11 sketchbook paper. A good representation of my personal highly-rendered art style.

Awesome detail- down to the broken window blinds (my favorite part)!

Thanks! It's always tons of fun :)

Totally, I dig it. It would be an interesting experiment to see: if you distort/manipulate a heightened sense of depth through varying line thicknesses. Leading the eye across the page: foreground - background/ atmosphere, focal point - submissive overlaying elements - hot spot details, solely playing with line/ line thickness to indicate more depth of spacemight be beneficial. Anywho, your work is hella inspiring with my humble idea set aside- (in terms of this piece, it completely works and adds a sort of chaotic disorientation relevant to the story). I get enthusiastic sometimes, can't help it... :)

Thanks so much! This piece is actually several years old, I've been growing and adding more shading to create depth while keeping the line quality.
