Go back to "Blut Schändung"

"Blut Schändung" is German for "blood violation" (literal translation). My art instructor wrote "weak background" on this one, but I don't agree with him. I was trying to portray the feeling of lifelong regrets. The sunglasses represent a repression of self examination due to past regrets. The tear of blood (hard to see) reinforces this feeling of regret and lack of self worth. The pitch background symbolizes the way we often look at our own past ("The good is oft interred with the bones" sort of thing).
