i love the texture on the walls of the box, reminds me of the fleshy surfaces from DooM. i dig the black halo, nice work on the details of anatomy, i really like how the ink looks too, great job!

the wall texture is rice paper with a floral design i think. it has fibres that look a lot like veins.
i've gotten a few comments on the anatomy. for freehand i guess i did pretty good. glad you pointed out the ink too. thanks a lot dude! :]

it is a pretty common feeling of being trapped in a void/box whatever keeps you from moving forward. its tough not to feel like that.

Blind, can't think of anything to write, trapped inside a box? Well it's not just any poet, it's a deviantART poet, right? ;) You know which ones I'm talking about:

"why did u leave me?
im crying tears of blood
so alone and so misunderstood
my scars are my life lines
black black black"
:D

Seriously, excellent deviation. The way you've drawn the ink and the paper makes the whole thing look like it's moving, like it's an action shot, you know?
