Rich texture, evocative concept, emotion caught in the act. I so enjoy a piece that makes me just want to stare and come up with stories to explain what I see happening. *staring*

Wow..there is great emotion represented here! 

It's looks like he's about to cry...and that he's starting to realize that he did a terrible thing...being under that evil spirit's control... 
Or that could be the spirit of the person he killed, that has already forgiven him and is now trying to comfort him (she has her arm on his heart too) XD

It's a wonderful painting! Bravo!

I cant belive how well you draw faces, this piece is absolutely stunning, and the contrast with the bright shirt just makes it so good. And then on top of that it's all traditional which is even more impressing. I need me a print of this sir!

An absolutely amazing artwork. The atmosphere and feeling is really intense, I love how the white shirts contrasts with the rather dark background. Everything is perfect, from expressions to composition and rendering!

A gorgeously rendered, and very evocative, fabulous piece of artwork... the fact that this is traditional media is just the icing on the cake as far as I'm concerned. Amazing work on the lighting, mood and expressions here, and congratulations to you on your Daily Deviation; this piece most definitely does deserve it!
