I too suffer from sever depression and can identify with this piece completely. I see the struggle in it, the emotion and so much more. It is a piece I would love to write about if you wouldn't mind. It really called to me on a deep level; I actually started crying as I sat back and really looked at it closely.
not only does this portray depression and suicidal thoughts, i see as a reflection of what someone is going through when they suffer from cancer or some type of disease. this work portrays the emotions and struggle they might be facing. it can also be letting go of someone who passed away, even though how much u miss them u have to let them go.
this is very beautiful work. i like that its simple and not too busy by adding your typcial moon, bats, crows, ravens, skulls etc. just having the rain and cobwebs is simple enough. plus its very grayscale so it makes much darker and moody. and also having the person look very pale and almost dead could be a symbol of being sick and losing trust in yourself and the world.
sorry for the long comment, but i just had to comment on this lovely piece of work. ^^
