Shrouded Suffocation

Aaaand done! There's a lot more I could say about this drawing, but I will be vague and keep it at this: with this Peruvian Mask I was thinking about the masking of pain and heartbreak, bottling up emotions to the point of choking on one's own tears, struggling with suffering and being unable to fight it... and just trying to visualize that struggle. This is definitely a departure from the look of the other portraits I've done so far, and I actually think I'm going to continue with this style.
