Alone -Self-Portrait by tiranaki Alone -Self-Portrait by tiranaki
...illusion never changed... into something real, cold and alone...

Self-portrait. I've had depression on and off for a quite a number of years, but this last month it has hit me somewhat harder and I've been very frustrated and unmotivated, feeling like I'm a failure and that my life has been nothing but a waste. This is my attempt at depicting how I felt. I tried creating a drawn piece of art but it was just not the same. I don't really know if this does a good job of explaining it though.

Created: printed out, then scanned back in, messed with scanner settings and then some minor roughing up in Photoshop.
