This one was a challenge since animals and crazy perspective are something not exactly within my comfort zone. But I'm pretty happy with it, despite the perspective issues.

I think the image and the title will tell the story by themselves =D But if you like a little bit of story to go along with it, here it is:

Gilbert the Guinea Pig was destroyed. His girlfriend had dumped him, just like a frigging bird dumped its poop from a tree. And if that wasn't enough, he had seen her making out with his best friend Andrew.
Ex-best friend, of course. Oh that traitor! He would never forgive Andrew for that, that stupid little birdhumper. It was too much for poor Gilbert. He had decided to put an end to it, and what was more suited for this than the Imperial Tower of Guinea Town?
Just when he was ready for the experience of his little guinea pig body being smashed to thousand pieces on the Main Street two hundred metres below him, he heard a voice from behind.
"Don't jump", Andrew screamed.

I always enjoy works that tell a story, and I have to admit, it really stirred some emotions in me when I first saw Don't Jump by =Maidith. Not only is it a touching, emotional piece, the colors are absolutely gorgeous and the details are lovely. The expression on that little face tells it all. ( Featured by savagebinn )

It's so simple but a powerful, emotion stirring piece. Nice touch of adding tears on Gilbert. He must have cried while he was climbing up. Wonderful work.:clap:

Wow! For not being comfortable with perspective or animals, you hit this one out of the park! Love the story, and the mood you created with this scene! Hope Andrew talked him out of it!

Very nicely done! This topic is even very close to my actual feelings. It is hard to live without most beloved one but there is nothing that can be done to change her mind. As much You love and sorrow as much he/she can't love You. What a stupid life paradox.

I don't know if the comment from before made it to you, but just in case, I will send it, again. First off, the painting is very realistic. Second, it is tragic and classic, and third, it follows the rules for "DepressioninAnimals".

It's amazing how Guinea Pigs (and all rodents) are excellent for personifying human situations/emotions, not for their fanciful novelty. Put them in a scene like this, and they immediately pull on the heart strings. :aww:
