Great illustration of the topic. Beautiful line work too. (And don't get me started on Twighlight--Ick! There's still a hole in my brain from reading it.)

I love the painting, but have no patience for Bella and her teenaged overdramatization. Tee hee, indeed!

Thinking bback to when I was in my late teens and early twenties and had feelings somewhat like Bella, it never felt as "clean" as this though. The emptiness, definitely, but the edges were much more ragged (and bloody!).

Nice (again)!
