In the House of Flies by Super-Chi In the House of Flies by Super-Chi
"I've watched you change
Into a fly
I looked away
You were on fire
I watched a change
In you
It's like you never
Had wings
Now you feel
So Alive"

Change (In the House of Flies) - Deftones

Ink and Prismacolour markers.

I heard a snippet of this song in a movie, roughly 8 years ago. As I didn't quite catch the lyrics, searching for it online proved fruitless -until, a week ago, I heard it on the radio. It instantly clicked: it was THAT song! So I downloaded it and drew a picture to celebrate. :)

I'm a huge fan of Deftones, and when I saw this picture, that song came into my head. Then I scrolled down and saw that the song was actually your inspiration for making this and I'm just like, oh snap that's awesome.

A very unsettling mix of beauty and disease. Pure class. ^_^

The fact that the person pictured is beautiful makes the flies so much more disturbing. I like it in a it-creeps-me-out sort of way. :)

wow. This in incredibly gorgeous--I love the use of negative space for the hair! The face and eyes (I especially like the nose though) are amazingly done. Excellent work!

I like how the face and colors looks so soft but the rest is so crisp XD 1 question though: How did you keep the white... white? Did you use masking fluid or cut out paper or were you just super careful?
