I might not have amassed 200+ views, but i have amassed 75+ prior to the actual release.
This has given me a good experience about promotion and 
has shown me that it isn't so much the content that gives you views, its how you share it.

Now, to explain the artwork. In short, Here goes

What started as a simple experiment to blend skin tones together turned out to be quite a fun little project.

The concept was influenced by a piece titled Mistaken identity. As you can see there are similarities between the concept of sticking glass around the head of our character.

The colour scheme came to me when i remembered a simple painting i did years ago. It was of some poppy flowers contrasted on a simple green background. I thought i could infuse these elements and dedicate the overall concept and titling of this painting by honouring the old one.

*As for the rest, we'll you can leave that open to interpretation. but i will come back to it later on when I'm not under so much pressure to post this now.
