Improve or Perish by Ashwings Improve or Perish by Ashwings
Something all artists should know about. The need to improve, or be left in the dust to stangnate, well at least thats how I see it anyways.

Kinda vague but you can make it up from there...I hope.
I guess it's okay to leave the character ambiguous, so all can relate.

India ink on #24 illustration board. Probably a solid 6-7 hours was put into this...or 5...I'm gonna go with 5, makes me sound like I have a life...

edit! Fixed somethin on it, gotta fix the print, so I deactivated it u___u don't want people buying the print with the boo boo on it.

I love your piece and I totally agree with your description, we're all up against this challenge to improve, don't be the one left behind. Keep moving forward and always remember you aren't alone. Keep pushing for perfection everyone! :)

Hot like wasabi, but how did he die? Was is suicide, or murder? and if so, why? Than again, perhaps you didn't go that far into the drawing. Ah well. ^_^

That is such a fantastic piece!
I like the concept, and the artists. ha.
The artwork itself is just great though.

I apologize if I've already commented. I have too much files saved on my computer and I'm going through my favorites list ^^;
