The Remnant by shimoda7 The Remnant by shimoda7
This is a drawing I've been working on for the past few days. It has a special meaning to me and I'm glad it came out exactly the way I wanted.
No need to say that I'd love to know what you guys think of it.

- 2H, HB, 2B and 8B mechanical and regular graphite pencils on smooth drawing paper
- 10"x11" (28x32.5 cm)
- about 30 hours

Thanks for looking

No idea what it means, but as usual, the detail and texture are gorgeous

I don't usually comment when looking at Art but I noticed this, and just really felt it. It also fills me with a special meaning, I'm not sure if it's the one you were trying to create, but its a very symbolic piece, I fell in love with it. lol. Good job and great execution of your idea.

Care to share the meaning it has for you?

Sure, sorry for reaching back to you so soon. Your very welcome by the way.

When I see the fact that the wings are broken but also placed on a human body,  it seems to symbolize a lot. It can be broken dreams, depression that keeps you from heading where you need to, a cut back on motivation, not feeling expectations, and many things I've been through many times. If I imagine a bird with broken wings, they'd be hopeless, putting it on a human makes me see how damaged they are, in a unique way, which can be many of things.
If it's possible I'd like to hear your side of it, if thats fine. :) 

I didn't mean to ramble on, lol. I apologize.

No problem, and thank you :)
Actually your interpretation is pretty much spot on! It is indeed what I intended to convey. In short: a purpose/dream and what is left of it.

Yay, haha. I had a feeling that was what it was, it really is nice how you artistically conveyed it. It is a killer idea! 
Hopefully you'll make more art like this one with a message?
