Oh goodness Muff the contrast in this is phenomenal. I imagine the abstractness of the image up top to reflect some kind of inner turmoil, perhaps? Or possibly just a wide range of emotions. And then the way the colors mute into greys along the bottom adds so a helpless sensation. This is a fantastic piece Muff I always enjoy seeing the different things you always come up with. <3
I imagine that blur on the left is due to a scanner's innate ineptitude, but it actually adds to what is already a great picture by working with the lines in the bottom half to deliver a fleeting sense of motion.
Oh! And great use of colours there! Not just the main, uh... thing (makes me think parachute), but also the dulled tints surrounding it.
I'm afraid that I'm going to have to be cliche and say that my primary source of artistic inspiration is music, haha. In this case, I listened to "I am Not a Robot" by Marina and the Diamonds a lot when I drew this.
