    UPDATED: Tragic Meth Addict with Blue Hair

    sometimes you make decisions that adversely affect
    the rest of your life...
    and there isn't a single thing you can do about it,
    but live with it.
    and cry
    and forget what life was like before
    because it will never be "before" again.
    there's only the present.
    now.
    maybe tomorrow.

    an aquantence told me of a girlfriend he had.
    beautiful girl who suffered from manic depression.
    she was a meth addict too.
    she was alone and high.
    and depressed.
    and she had a table saw in her studio apartment.
    and she placed her arms on the table
    and sawed off her hands.
    the neighbors heard her scream.
    they called 911.
    she lived.
    she sits on the streets now.
    homeless.
    handless.
    hopeless.

    OH MY F#$King...Thats not what I wanted to wake up to this morning......homeless, hopless, and now handless... god.

    Art Related:
    The brush strokes really help give the painting its hard emotion. I would've like to see some sort of directional light. Maybe from above, creating a heavy shadow nose. Some transulant/ghostly hands would be cool too.

    It's a TABLE SAW, all you have to do is drag it across it. Sad to hear, can't see the pic right now

    Good hell! That is a horrifying story. This is why I hate reality. It's also why I think drug dealers should be publically exicuted....after hearing stories like that I don't consider that an overreaction.

    As for the picture, it's good, but the thinness of the arms bothers me maybe if they were thicker, a little more realistic?

    I don't really know what a table saw is [never saw one] but the story is really sad.

    As for the painting itself:
    I think the critics before are right, the arms are too thin and don't quite fit to the rest of her body. Maybe you can 'thin' her a bit

    oh my! this story is almost making me cry... ive seen friends do horrible things...

    (by the way, Harry, a table saw is just a saw attached to a table, for cutting wood in straight lines and angles...)

    About the artwork, her face is really great, alot of emotion, but its a terrifying blank emotion, you do that pretty good in your artwork, but the body doesnt really match, her breast look way to big and heavy compared to her skeletal arms, i would imagine she has tiny dried up boob...

    @Steph: Thx for the description

    I really like that last one. You can feel the dark mood spreading.
    Seems to me that she is just about to jump off ...
