I found this picture on a youtube video (Foxes, Youth remix by Mr Suicide Sheep) and it was in such an osmosis that I just can't help thinking, looking & listening at it. I was so obsessed about this image that I made a drawing of it yesterday in approximatively 4hours. I haven't draw since a looong time and I'm glad to re-start with an image like this one. I can't even pretend to reach the beauty & meaning of the original but event though it's not as good as the original I'm still proud of my work ^_^ I wanted to thank you for this inspirational art work, please keep doing things like that ! (sorry for my english, it really sucks :()

When I first saw this I thought the grenade represented inner turmoil and the guns represented everyone who hurt her  and betrayed her in her life. Guess I was wrong. Sweating a little...

Huh, I didn't even see the lasers until you mentioned the guns.

This image reminds me of those scenes where one of the characters has to make a 'my life is on the line' choice, and everytime I nearly tear up, since it normally results in a huge death.

In other words, this image is amazing! You have talent. *Adds to favorites*

hi, im just a stranger passing by and this is a pretty old posting, you might not even read it,
but i just wanted to leave a comment hoping you just might catch a glimpse;
I just encountered this image while random googling, since i've just started google(I live in non-english country, so I never used google before,)
and it litterally just stunned me. this image.... this girl's facial expression, rain, grenade, atmosphere and focusing of the image itself....
I'm not good with words and even worse at English(pardon my english, it's my 2nd language)so I can't pinpoint it exactly but I really loved
everything about it..(i especially loved that grenade. if she was holding a gun, it wouldn't have been impressive)

I just couldn't help empathizing to that girl, cause I suffered from depression and used to cut myself for years,
and during those times, I just felt like what that girl must feel like. Like there's nowhere else to go and there's no other option.
(i don't know how you could've drawn that girl so realistically, maybe you've been down also?)
this pic really speaks to me.... now it's my wallpaper. definitely the most impressive painting i saw in my life.
thanks for this.

This image is amazing. The background and the girl itself make the image perfectly and set the mood for this image.

ask OmeN2501, if you can get the full resolution picture. If it's for a non comercial use, you might get it. Afterwards you can upload it on a page were you can make print outs. For Example in Switzerland we have

She ran through the dark streets, the rain torrential on her covered body. 'They won't stop,' she was warned, 'until they have you'. So she ran. Once the act was done, she ran and ran and ran as fast and as far as her legs could carry her. The soldiers, whom she knew were servants to their enemy, his nemesis, pursued without hesitation. They were not human, like her. They did not have a concept of rest or exhaustion. She would be hunted until her death or this universe's. But she had a plan. She reached the bridge, which was closed down and blocked off already. Even she couldn't clear it in time. She turned to face her pursuers, their ashen grey faces staring at her with steel eyes, their guns trained on her, not to kill, but to capture. They needed her. A specimen like her was invaluable for those like them. She played the game, followed the rules. But the rules were rigged, the game was a fraud. There was only ever one outcome in this game: Her defeat.

But she did not fall in love with a player of games.

She reached into her pocket, removing her final salvation and the key to defeating their enemy. A single fragmentation grenade. She felt the fear coursing in her system, and she could see the apprehension on the ashen faces of her enemies. She was scared; who wouldn't be scared, when faced with the prospect of ending their own existence? She was told that this was the only way out, the surest way to win, that it would all be OK. But the man who told her had also warned her never to trust him, under any circumstances. Did that include these circumstances?

Deciding in an instant as the soldiers began stepping forward, feeling confident now that she was bluffing, she yanked the pin out from the grenade. As their steel eyes shot open, one of the soldiers asked out to her, speaking with its master's voice.


She wanted to smile, like she imagined he would, but she couldn't manage it. She wasn't him, she didn't have his age, his quantum powers, his immortality. Even now, even when everything was left to him, when she had to trust him now more than anybody ever had to trust anything else ever before, she couldn't muster the kind of confidence he'd have.

But she had picked up a thing or two about his wordsmithing.

"Because I'm not like you," she said.

"I still have a soul."

And then the world erupted in fire and fragmentation.
