The illustration style of your work feels a little empty of feeling. It doesnt really suck me in. The way you paint the characters works but I cant help but be turned off by the subject matter. Maybe its because I went through my dark gore phase and moved into something a little lighter. Ive been trying, for some time, to decide what kind of people would dig a book of this subject matter and I think it would be someone with a lot of demons themselves; people who are seeking the answer to their pain. Those who dont need that answer wouldnt care for it as much as someone who lives that pain. Art is really telling in that sense. I watch my own work and what I create and see how my own demons spill out into my work and sketches. As I progress spiritually in life and heal those pains I find my work gains much more brilliance and life.
Thats just some food for thought. I say keep going with it all and let it take you where it will and reveal to you what it must. The aum poses are nice, you may want to make them more brilliant. Its cool that you did paint those though. Spiritually speaking darkness can never damage what is right, bright, and true. It can only draw attention to itself. The practice about meditation is like a battle between dark and light but it isnt about one side winning or the other. Its about seeing that they exist in you in that moment and you make a choice. When I see the cleaver going into the character that represents meditation, it suggests to me that attention has been stolen by a dark thought. The goal then would be to bring yourself back to that meditative freedom.
You may have a goal with your story that I cannot see but I would suggest thinking about what you want to bring to the world. If you understand law of attraction at all then you should consider what you are currently attracting to yourself. Ive observed the way you write posts to people and I can see the backlash that happens immediately. The energy you put in you get back. This story has so much potential to enlighten and enrich someones life but that is a conscious creative choice you would need to make. It also has the power to once again tell them how ugly and painful existence and their life can be. Ask yourself if thats what you would want others to give you and constantly tell you.
