Mind devour by Sebmaestro Mind devour by Sebmaestro
This is another paradox that I've been working on for a couple of days. It describes a person with psychological problems such as schizophrenia, insanity, depression or other mental problems. His endless screaming makes his own mind eat him up.

I have periods in my life where I feel like this. I wanted to make an illustration of my thoughts and my pain within.

Equipment used: pencils (3B, 4B, 6B, 5H) stompf/blending stumps, charcoal, tissues and an eraser.

Size: Regular A2 (42 cm × 59,4 cm)

I also made an animation of it:

This is incredible, and a beautiful - eerie, startling, painful - depiction of mental anguish. Particularly intriguing is that the endless screaming is portrayed as a sort of downward spiral.

I saw this on Pinterest and had to find the actual artist. I know what you were saying in the drawing very true about the mental health problem. I have a form of autism, major depression, anxiety disorder and PTSD. I love the arts and I'm trying to learn to draw with a digital painting program called Krita. Just wanted to say that I love your drawings! Some look like they should be on a Pink Floyd album cover. Keep up the good work!

I saw this piece on Pinterest as well and like you I had to find the artist. I feel that this piece speaks to me as well with the screaming in your own mind.

Sebmaestro, you have given Edward Munch's "The Scream" some very serious competition. This piece is amazing and so are your others. They are disturbing, but real and enlightening. Also, to see that you do all of this in black and white blows my mind.

Hey I have been working on a final project for drawing 1 at my college and i have a idea similar to this one where there is a internal scream manifested through faces going deeper into your soul/ esophagus.

I'm bipolar and am going through a Manic state and this exactly is how I feel. My brain is screaming at me and the real world is too slow and frustrating and I just want to scream right back......................

Amazing and very talented... I came across your Art while I was googling Mind pictures. I have been feeling like this lately... But what touched me the most is that while meditation here and there I have been picturing my self screaming help!!!! And it's exactly what I have pictured... Thank you for sharing your amazing gift, and feelings. Very powerful... So many people feel this way and they keep it all in 😔

Let it all out... Feels so much better😊

I was saying it's not original because you 'stole' it from someone, the drawing is old and it's someone else' work, that's why I said (me and other people) that's it's not your idea, you shoud've said that you copied or something and not take the idea as your own, but other than that it's really well done, I like it :) so keep up the good work, just credit people when you should ;)

Hi Sebmaestro, i am creating an easy to navigate and understand website for teenagers about mental illness. On the website there will be an art page that will feature two types of art: what it feels like to have an illness (dark side) and the lighter side concerning hope and it is possible to live normally with one. i was wondering if i could feature your artwork in the gallery - there will be a link to this page next to the featured image, also your name (either DA name or real name) if you are interested let me know :)

many thanks, steph :)
