Tear Down the Wall by rifftiff Tear Down the Wall by rifftiff
Something I like to call vent-art. When I'm frustrated or exhausted or whatever.
Anyways. I started thinking about how people, including myself, have a problem of building up a wall around themselves. And the better the builder, that is to say the more introvert and self-protectant of a person, the harder it is to break down that wall. I suppose I would be a world-class architect in this analogy.
Inspired a bit by Pink Floyd's "The Wall," yes. I listened to it while drawing this.

I'm not blaming my self-protecting tendencies for what is going on right now in my life, but it is always a possibility that it is a contributor the problem, and I just don't know it.

Man some of my best art comes out when I'm venting, doesn't it?

And I hope everyone had good holidays. I'm sorry for being inactive, I have been busy. I will try to answer all of your comments soon.

Hello again, I've come back to this piece of art because, well, I couldn't stop thinking about it.
So, I literally just got back from seeing The Wall live. It wasn't all of Pink Floyd, just Roger Waters, but OHMALARD it was amazing.
Anyway, through the concert I kept thinking about this pic, and how accurately it captures the essence of The Wall (my favorite album).
I just thought that (as an artist) you would love to hear that, so, CONGRATZ!

Really? Holy cow thank you so much! You have no idea how much this comment meant to me! I'm so jealous you got the opportunity to see The Wall live! That is so awesome! I'm touched and super happy that while watching something as amazing as the actual live performance, my piece came to mind!
Seriously, thank you so much!

Anyways, was the concert not the best thing ever? That had to be amazing~!

Love Pink Floyd, love the image :) The simplicity of the figure brings a lot to the image, as well as the starkness of the 'wall'. Great job

The Wall is my favorite album of all time. And maybe it always will be! Thank you!

I like how graphic it is and the use of perspective :> emotional artwork is always more interesting because of the story behind it
rifftiff Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Indeed Schlissel, indeed! I like emotional art!

This is really well done, I love the perspective of it. I love the clean look to it, such smooth lines.

*wipes tears away* don't be sad twin

I'm really happy with how it came out. Though I should be drawing other things. >_<
