Signs of Depression - Contest Submission by Labrug Signs of Depression - Contest Submission by Labrug
Depression is something many people experience. We all have the potential to experience depression, but for those that truly suffer, it is often hard to tell. We mask our emotions with various characteristics, emotions and defense mechanisms. Learning how to manage my feelings with rational thought, I have discovered a way to balance my life so I am luckier than most. Learning about depression I believe changed my attitude towards it and when I found it rising in me, I was better armed to cope with it. You don't cure depression, you somehow manage it.

I took various photos of myself in various expressions. I then chose six of the better ones, blended them, and then applied various effects to create a painted look.

That painted effect is pretty convincing.  I can't help but think that I'm looking at a six-headed three-armed monstrosity than a pastiche, though.

That's how depression sometimes feels; like a multi-headed monstrosity.

THE THIRD ARM WAS ALWAYS THERE

The third arm just comes in handy. There's actually a fourth hidden beneath.
