Daily Deviation

Given 2012-06-30
The suggester said: It has made such an impact on me, the intense sadness depicted nearly drips off the screen. The effort put in to get all the details right is amazing, right down to the very realistic way the skin wrinkles. Never before have I seen such an accurate, realistic drawing of someone in agonizing misery. Loved and Lost!!! by ~nikz87 ( Suggested by Laeneris and Featured by Astralseed )

So much pain and anguish. I liked this but there is too much sorrow. How sad to have loved and lost. I am glad that I know no such feeling and hoped that I have never caused such grief.
