Castaway by Dessinmaitre Castaway by Dessinmaitre
Castaway
Pen, Ink, and Pencil
28x22"

EDIT: Thanks so much for the DD!!!!! I thought I might explain a bit of what this piece means. 

It deals with how some members of society can immediately & unknowingly  label others with a negative stereotype/image once they see them. In this case it is an individual who chooses to read silently instead of engage in a more sociable activity. The image represents the forlorn, lonely atmosphere that the viewer believes that individual is continually shrouded in. "He is a loner, forever alone who always isolates himself from others till the end".

Man I had a rough time finding the refs for this one but it was worth it! Individual Paper refs thanks to Faestock! :iconfaestock:

I like it because it seems so obvious, but thinking about it that way doesn't sit right.

I WAS gonna say that this seemed like a simple little Photoshop project, but then I read the "Pen, Ink, and Pencil" and had a mini seizure. This is awesome!

Thanks! I used a special Printmaking technique that I have explained here: comments.deviantart.com/20/401…. Although it may seem simple at first, there is a great deal of hand refinement to get the result that you see here! Thanks for your appreciation!
