Displayed in the Saint-Étienne church in France is the figure of René de Chalon, Prince of Orange. The prince died at the young age of 25 during the siege of Saint-Dizier in 1544. 
Rather then memorialize him in the standard hero form, his wife requested (or René himself requested, or possibly both) that he be shown as “not a standard figure but a life-size skeleton with strips of dried skin flapping over a hollow carcass, whose right hand clutches at the empty rib cage while the left hand holds high his heart in a grand gesture.” (Source)

❝One fine day you decide to talk less and less about the things you care most about, and when you have to say something, it costs you an effort… You’re good and sick of hearing yourself talk…you abridge… You give up… […] You don’t care about being right anymore.❞
Journey to the End of the Night by Louis-Ferdinand Céline

Anonymous: is tumblr user akamurai you? Because your art is one of the most amazing things i've ever seen!!! ♥ how long do you draw and what inspires you? How long did it take for you to be able to be this good? You're impossibly talented!

yes, this is my tumblr where i post my scribbles and thank you so much! i’m far from perfect, but I’m glad to know that someone like it <3 
i get inspired by various things, it can be music or books, or other artists. but mostly, literature and poetry, because it makes my imagination work more than anything. and i think i've been drawing since I could pick up a crayon.
as regards the last question, i don’t really know.. i don’t practise too much. i think of drawing much more often than i actually draw. maybe it is the matter! mind power haha. and i have a habbit to peer at object, examine them. but of course i got some basic knowledges in my art college, although i’ve been an awful student, my attedance was very irregular, so as my teacher’s. also, examine other painter’s works is a very nice habbit, if you’re looking for advice.
