Depression is an OptionDepression is a choice, my dear,Depression is an Option by MikkiMarie
And happiness the same
You choose this illness, don’t you?
What a tragic little game.
Depression is an option, love
Just get up out of bed
Take your tears and worries
And just smile now instead.
Depression is a choice, you see,
And so is suicide.
Just sit back, kick your feet up, dear
Enjoy this perfect ride.
Get over your own standards
Of what everyone should be.
Just smile for once, and maybe
You’ll be living perfectly.
Depression is an illness
That we feel so deep within.
Why would anybody choose
To write poetry on their skin?
Unless there lies a reason, dear,
I would not choose to die.
If depression was an option...
I’d choose to say goodbye.
Everytime we go,
Everytime I fall to sleep
But in every dream I have we meet
Everytime I’m awake, you’re gone
Tell me how it all went wrong
Can i change this life we live
‘Caus you’ve got it in your head now,
Yeah you’ve got it in your head now,
Do you mind if I light up the fire and let it burn?
Sometimes you come across a song which makes you feel certains things and then you want to draw them. ‘Let it burn’ by Moke did that for me.
Overall I like the outcome of it. It's a bit darker than the things I normally draw and I wanted to try a different perspective.

Critsim is highly appreciated! The fire isn’t exactly the way I wanted it to be, so if you’ve got advice how to improve, please tell!
Well, that was a lot of time!
But I’m really happy about the result of it! The light is the way I wanted to be and the colours do match this time!
It was meant to be a scene out of a story I’m writing at the moment, but it did turn out a bit different. The wolf isn’t quite as scary as he should be and cave doesn’t look very rocky, but that are only details. My younger brother concluded it the best way possible by answering “it reminds me a bit of Moses, you know? The burning bush-scene?” (by this he meant the DreamWorks version “Prince of Egypt”) when I asked him what he thought about it.
Not quite, but I guess he meant it in a positive way.

Twelve hours of painting laterrr! Those mountains were so hard to get right! Overall I like the atmosphere it has and the outcome of the left mountain, which really was a pain in the ass. I’ve spent at least five hours getting that one the colors I wanted :’D
Inspired by listening to Calexico - Glowing Heart of the World, wonderful song! If you don’t know it, you should check out!
