Never Lasting by yuumei Never Lasting by yuumei




Mirror, mirror, on the the wall
Show me the future of us all

This is one of the hundreds of sketches I did during my last semester at college. I will be slowly posting the ones I like (and the rest in batches) through out the next few months :)

For all those complaining that this idea has been done before, yes, I know. This type of drawing actually has a genre called Memento Mori. It means things that reminds us of our mortality/death.

This isn't a terrible picture, but it sure is the most over-rated picture on Deviantart.

Pawsome art piece I like this piece very much.  I like detail in the bodice and the slight resignation in her body posture that one day she will just be bones. >^,^<

This actually makes me think of depression... She sees her dead reflection, and often times with depression feelings of "I'm already dead inside" surface, and this really seems to capture the essence of that.

Very, very inspiring. I originally was going to skip looking at this, since i'm very tired today. But I remember when I was younger I used to look in the mirror. And then see a skeleton in the mirror, then rub my eyes quickly and see my own reflection. I always feared skeletons sooo much when I was younger lol. But I think I remember my imaginary best friend being a skeleton. Huh weird... But anyway, THX 4 DA MEMORIES!!!!!!
