It seems like every time I finish a bigger piece, I promise myself I will only work on small scale pieces. However, I didn't think I could do this concept justice on a smaller size, so here it is.
On a design level, I wanted to emphasize the contrast between the dynamic motion of the figure and the static nature of the skull. I chose a pallette with subtle hue changes as an experiment, since my shades usually tend to be obivously different. At the same time, I wanted to keep the color count relatively low, while representing green, red, and blue.
I drew this from scratch on the computer, no tablets, scanners, scaling, filters, or indexing was used. Circles, lines, and layers were the most advanced tools I used.

There's kind of a riddle around this piece. All the visual clues you need are in the piece itself. I'm looking for a seven word phrase in response to this.
For the first person to give me the answer, I will make a Wee of their choice.
EDIT: Ptoing is the winner with: "I would tear this whole building down"
(which is the line after "If I had my way" in the Grateful Dead song "Samson and Delilah").
