By the way, I would love for you to join, even if just as a watcher. =] Hopefully, we can get some awareness projects going, and it helps to have some exceptionally creative minds like your own to get such projects up and running, as well as to spread awareness of all kinds. You can read about the kinds of causes the group is intended for. Again, if you're interested, it's here: :iconthe-spectra:

Do you think you could add this to my group? I'd really love to see it in the gallery. =] It's not often that I find artwork that's both as great as yours and touches on this subject matter.

I think there is a way to add deviations to your group. I'm not sure how to do it.

Oh man.... the second I saw the title I sigh-moaned in.... some kinda understanding emotion I can't pin down. :|

It's such a heavenly scene.

What some wouldn't give to reach that idyllic, wonderful balance.

Nice work! I would have preferred to have the two amine groups included and the hydroxyl group accounted for, because that is what makes serotonin, serotonin and how it performs its chemistries therein. Maybe you excluded them for the sake of artness, which is totally understandable too! :) Either way great picture.

Otherwise the angels are beautiful and I love the background. I cannot do backgrounds for my life.

I would like to thank you for your gesture on behalf of mental health awareness, as mental illness is a terrible thing which I have experienced for many years now. I lament that people with mental illnesses are still stigmatized and I applaud you and your artistic talents!
