Talking Pupils by Andoledius Talking Pupils by Andoledius
Based off the short story "talking pupils". Its about a man who is cursed, and as a result goes blind, leaving his beautiful orchids left to whither and die.

Also the cascading tear flow is actually in the story, i did not make him emo on purpose :p

enjoyy

Also, is this also from "Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio?" I seem to remember a story about a guy hearing voices coming from his eyeballs and then going blind (I took a whole class on that book, which was a blast)

He reminds me slightly of Asian movie stars!

The touch of pink...a bit of beauty in a bleak landscape. I should check out those stories!

your style is very evocative of Sam Weber's works.... and while i usually resent these "you remind me of" comments... that's the first thing i thought when i saw this, so... here it is.

your work here is very delicate, and very mindful of colour.
the subtle tone variations are more than enough to craft a story throughout the image, and work well with the fragile, yet precise lines.
