Frightening Truth About Desire by ianvicknair Frightening Truth About Desire by ianvicknair
This piece narrates my experience of adoption. One of my biggest loss was the feeling of love. I yearn for it, but at the same time it terrifies me. I was never able to experience it when I was younger, but as I have grown older, I have learned more about love, and even felt a little part of it. Pieces of my heart have felt like they were detached, but as time passes by, I feel like my heart is slowly being restored.

All stock images are from me and elements created by me.
Thank you to: deceptivx.deviantart.com/ Shaun for the help of the render man :) Cheers mate

When you see this, you actually can feel something, the tittle fits really good, I can't say much because this is your experience, but from this side of the window looks very good, the details in the body and overall, the well balance light and dark, those little random (or not) things that make the picture even more interesting. Yes, that fear, that feeling that you got when you want something, but you don't what would happen... you can feel that in here. I don't know but I love this piece, you did and awesome job here, you just have to love this.
What do you think?

I would have to say over 40 hours, i did a 3d model of the guy and of the diamonds and then copied the work in illustrator and transferred it to Photoshop. Took a lot, you should check the rest of my gallery

Really???? Wow Andrew I never knew that!!! You just touched my heart! WOW.
Its weird as I get older it gets better, it heals so slowly and i am so happy about it.
Are you married? I get so worried about it because if I do I could loose it.

i actually got fostered in the end but saw both my brother and sister end up being fostered then adopted it broke down with my brother but my sister ended up being adopted twice i am the eldest
sadly what they called a cyclic ( sort of a vicious circle/trap) history passed over onto my own children the eldest nearly got adopted but the youngest did

as with me and its been hell out of me my brother and sister i some how managed to get some kind of life thanks to some lovely foster parents who helped push my art to where it is now as with being married or in any relationship the effects of care looking to feel wanted or loved can really put a dent in it
i only met the love of my life after being sent to an institution for all the wrong reasons whom i had met when i was 17 and then remained with her for about 25 years sadly she got taken from me in Feb of this year due to breast cancer

when i was younger i would draw pictures often very dark at times or where there were houses with no doors or windows
