Because I think art should speak….

What do these say??

    Kind of reading you and your style into this, so it’s not stand alone. Maybe as much Thematic Apperception Test as artistic analysis.

    Grave yard – “Communing with an old enemy” (looks too guarded to be a friend)

    Guns blazing – “Fighting your way out” (arched back implying dodging and retreating)

    Muscle – “Friendly warning. Don’t fuck with me” (the smile makes it friendly, but the eyes send a warning)

  2. Mary says:

    Grave yard – “Rob the grave.”

    Guns blazing and Muscle with Claws – “Kill”

    I like the first one…she looks like she’s kind of gloating.

  4. The bottom one, I recognise, so it’s hard for me to interpret without reference to the story it relates to. I would categorise the theme as “pride in one’s body”.

    I read the middle one as “cornered”; “making a stand”; “fighting back”.

    The top one, I am reading as this woman visiting her own grave, and saying, “Never going back!” She looks to me like a vampire or resurrected demon or some such, and I’m reading a lot of magical imagery in he picture so that’s where my mind turns. Maybe she’s resurrecting someone else, for her own ends?

  5. The first one says, “I’m in a cemetery at night, it’s fucking raining, and my hair is in my fucking eyes.”

    Wow, Ren…I am consistently floored whenever you post original art…the first one especially is gorgeous 🙂

    #1. ‘Just making sure….’

    #2. ‘Damn, this new Nintendo Wii handsets are killer!’

    # 3. ‘You picked wrong week to piss me off. Say your prayers, Bitch’.

    Narcissistic of me, but the first one reminds me of ME looking at a grave and thinking “Fuck you, Death.” I’m linking!

    The first one makes me go “Ooh when is that comic coming out?”

    So I get a whole female supernatural detective kind of vibe- that would be cool, maybe something with lots of werewolves and silver bullets…. and sex..

    The second one made me laugh because the male figure has a bit of “Fark! Aughh” look while the female figure has more “fuck you”… I loved the juxtaposition…

    Because my brain is in the comic store today I’m thinking the third pic is a good variant cover (what is it with variant covers though?)… female detective gets bitten goes werewolfy- or a big bad nemesis… oooh it seems so cool in my head…
