Prisoner by choice by Gingashi Prisoner by choice by Gingashi
For a long time I wanted to do an illustration on this topic. There are many ways it could have been portrayed but here's what I ended up with. I hope you like it and that it can speak to you in some way!

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-01-18
The suggerter said, "Prisoner by choice by ~Gingashi is a picture with bright colors and crisp lines, that shows a really fascinating concept!" and to quote ~Ghost-Toast-ABC's comment, "i love it's integral depth and emotion! it's so open to concept and interpretation!" in which I really approve. ( Suggested by Minato-Kushina and Featured by jcroxas )

First of all, the comparison with abstract expressionism is about the huge amount of explaining something that clearly doesn't add up.

Second, in that case I consider my good deed of the day done.

I refuse to go to a depth that isn't there.

You assume I want to shoot the people I want to kill.

Yes, it could be anything, the first of which it could be is a lot more space, which destroys your statement from the previous post.

Maybe, maybe not. I'd really rather figure out who Mr. Jones from "Ballad of a Thin Man" is. I already know who "You're So Vain" is about.

First of all, I hate those people who get a DD for posting a red square or something like that. I support video-games, photography, and everything else. You should be judging me for something you have evidence of.

Second, I really commented the first comment without thinking things much. I thought someone unlike you would see that maybe I was right, and the next second the same person would go along and mind their own business. But as you're clearly not following and you're so decided to bring my un-thought theory down, you are ruining the chance other viewers to enjoy my proposition of watching things from another point of view.

As you're ignorant of some definitions which are crucial to defend my theory (and decide to remain like that), I can't discuss with you any longer. In fact, it was revealed this wasn't a discussion at all, because you're simply ignoring my arguments.

Yet, I can put it simple so you understand where I'm going to: Can you please kill a man and post a picture of his bullet-pierced head here? Is that a no? oh... well, if you're sure, it's your CHOICE and I guess you can bear a handcuff as a token of gratitude! What's that? you're in handcuffs? That makes you a PRISONER. I'm confuse, let's see that again... Prisoner... by choice? That does sound like the title of this art.

Anyway, a missing wall in this picture doesn't mean that there's the exit. It means this is incomplete and while incomplete, it could be anything that completes the missing part (There's some Schroedinger for you) or nothing.

And "Herr" Locke is a joke. I see you don't get it. But someday you will...

You're using quotes properly. I wasn't trying at all.
