Man Eater

This image was completed using Sketchbook Pro for the iPad. Symmetry and balance play a key role in this piece to give the viewer an effective and believable feeling of weight as the subdued is pressed down upon by the woman. Her sultry nature personifies and illustrates addiction as it rides it's victim and takes it's victim's life. The roses are a symbol of pleasure, but every rose has a thorn. It's the problem of pleasure as this victim realizes the consequences to his habit.
