Bread of Shame by wolfmorphine Bread of Shame by wolfmorphine
This piece is inspired by a Kabbalah concept I was reading about the other day called the bread of shame. Although it appears to be up for interpretation as far as what exactly bread of shame is and is not from a religious standpoint, this is the concept as I understand it and apply it to my own life and experiences.

Bread of shame refers to rewards or recognition in life that someone did not earn through their own hard work and perseverance, meaning that they are rewards unable to bring true satisfaction. If a person continually "eats the bread of shame" instead of earning their own way through the world in one way or another, they will become dejected and stagnant, a mere shadow of the person they could be, both to themselves and to the world around them. Stock used to help create this piece comes from *Lisajen-stock for the figure and sxc for the background and bread, and ~Falln-Brushes for the brushes the spiderwebs are based on.

i love the colors, think it's the best you've put out in a while. you should try blending the photographic parts to get a more paint feel in it. painters blend tools does the work pretty nicely.

Works for me! Does that taste anything like red wine? If so, pass the guilt draught! :lmao:

Wonderful concept. The spiderwebs look fantastic. How did you create them?

Thank you! The spiderwebs actually started out as brushes, although there was also quite a bit of fiddling, redrawing, and embellishment on my part as well. And boo on me... looks like I forgot to add my brush credit. I will correct that right away.

Hey, I did what you were talking about in your poll:giggle:

Eh... not really. You just asked a question, which is perfectly fine. In the poll, I was more talking about the people who write to me here and want me to teach them exactly how I do hair, or explain how to create pictures exactly like mine in a few easy steps or something. ;)

Thank you! It's hard for me to be down when it comes to any kind of bread, I think. I'm such a carb junkie. :hungry:
