Deliberation - surreal digital art by Mario Nevado

At this point if you are visiting this page you probably know “Deliberation” already, as it seems to be my most popular (and ripped off) artwork ever. It is a piece I created in a very difficult time of my life, emotionally speaking. I was considering breaking up a relationship that had lasted for years, and I did my best to do that doing the less possible damage (mind you, some wounds never heal, I guess). So, summarizing, this is my take of taking very difficult decisions.

Over the years, I have received hundreds (and I’m not exaggerating) of e-mails from people that have chronic pain illnesses or fybromyalgia and how much they related to this piece. I have also received several stories from people that can relate to this image after the loss of a loved one, or after surviving cancer. Sometimes it is very hard to reply to some of those messages, as most of them are certainly heartbreaking, but once again, I want to thank you all for sharing your stories with me. It makes me feel humble that what I create can serve people to go through difficult times.

Now that I am experimenting with animating my artworks, I couldn’t miss to make a version of “Deliberation”. I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
