Drowning 2 by myrkky Drowning 2 by myrkky
Self Portrait

Quite different to the 1st Version ;)

The writing in the chest reads:

RED INK: WANT TO KNOW WHAT I'M FEELING?

BLACK INK: While my lungs filled with water the intense burning in my chest fades away as I slip into unconsciousness and to my death - drowning.

Within 3 minutes of submersion I might be unconscious, within 5 minutes my brain will begin to suffer from lack of oxygen and the heart may stop pumping.

Breathing may have stopped, or I may be gasping for breath.

This piece is very intense, and it has a strong meaning it. It's breathtaking - literally.

:aww: Very neat as always, Love the concept, and I kind of agree with MerenTakana, Turquoise is more of an innocent color which kind of adds to the... in lack of better terms... creepyness? of the photo. I Get the cold Idea though too, Both I think apply. Very nice job as always.

With the turqoise clear water it almost looks more .... I can't place the right word.... horrible? not quite I know... but almost? like turqoise is an inocent colour, childrens are wearing it and in south water is full of colourfull fishes and coral and the water is only few feets deep and turqoise, still the fishes might have fangs or stiks or even elecrity, coral can be poisonous and it's sharp tought it looks smooth and sharks can smell even a tiniest bit of blood in the water...

I think this colour gives it a very cold feeling to the image.
