Newborn III - You can run... by Guihena Newborn III - You can run... by Guihena
… but you can’t hide.


“After the Angel choose to join the Dark side [link] , and after he deeply repents for that [link] , he has to pay the consequences for his acts... and, he won’t escape from Destiny…

He ended in the Land of Oblivion, where he was deprived of his ability to fly, and he was inflicted with a tremendous physical suffering…

The pain on his flesh is beyond the insupportable, far enough so he rips himself his meat till the bones with his own hands, again, and again… the acidic and abrasive rocks hurt his feet and make them burn on every step, so he just can’t stop running, in a non sense attempt to try to escape from all that … unsuccessfully… for all eternity…”


So, are we, Humanity, going to escape from paying the consequences (one way or another) for our acts?... our Destiny will reach us, sooner or later.


My works attempt to be a tribute to Simpleness, and at least, i hope they have a little of meaning.
For a better watch, see it at zoom, and if it shows too dark, please adjust the brightness.


I might not have much friends in here, but the few i have, they worth like 10,000, because they are amazing and great friends... "find a true friend, is more difficult than finding a needle in a haystack", and i found six... lucky me!.

I want to thank to all of you, my dear friends, because you make it very special for me... and in no particular order:

:iconananyana::iconchryssalis::icondani-owergoor::iconourak::iconmissgribouille: and now :iconangelles-laveau: , to all of you: :iconfreemanbowplz: THANKS!

I think that i'm not necessarily "kind", i would like to think that i am "honest" with my thoughts (if you allow me to say that from myself), and i like that you appreciate my words... because i'm starting to appreciate to you. :heart:

One last thing, if i may ask, why do you loved my photomanipulation?, because i would love to know your thoughts. :D

Yes, thank you :) <3

I love the concept of (seemingly to myself) an exiled angel, different from everyone else, is running with all of the pain, frustration, and negativity, in desperation to find a way out in a world of chaos and distraction. A nightmare within a nightmare.

Well, for those who dare to "live" the life can be a "living hell", that's why the most of the people live in "bubbles" on their confort zone, but that makes of them "the living dead"...

I already knew that your life has been complex, and i understand you... your words reflect that you already understood the real meaning of life, but hey!, maybe we are lonely "rejected angels", but we can make this Hell less heavy by supporting each other when we find another "exiled angels" on the crossroads of this living nightmare...

And I really love your work !! It is still very deep and a beautiful reflection on the human soul and humanity in general...
I am in constant conflict with my own choices and my actions... and hahaha... I don't even wait to be in hell to be punished, I do it already very well by myself... it looks like a self-destruction sometimes..

The dedication is from my heart, i'm glad that we can be friends, and, you can have bad days time to time, but you still are a great person, i'm here for you whatever you need... you just tell me, and i can take my Concorde to go with you right away... but wait... now that i remember, the last time i lend my Concorde somebody crashed it, and, oh well!, now i don't have how to go with you right away... Lol :D

Seriously, i'm here for you, i hope you know that... :heart: and it would be great to be able go to visit you and give you a big hug... mmmmm, one of this days, i hope, too.

I love that you do like my "reflections", and i hope that your "living Hell" periods don't be that bad, and that "they" leave you alone most of the time.
Thanks for being a good friend my dear Laurence. :iconloveyouplz:

Thank you my friend to care about me... I am not too bad these days...
But I don't want to complain too much, because my little personal dramas are nothing compared to the misery of the world...
there is a lot of pain and real suffering... and I am shocked to see all these wars and deaths every day...
Thanks to you too for being a lovely friend Guillermo, it means a lot to me :iconiloveit-plz:

That's why we are friends, to care each other, and thank God you're not too bad this days.
About the World, well, it's a pity, but, Destiny is on its way, and we can't do anything to change that... we just need to try to be a little better everytime we can...
I love to be your friend dear Laurence. :iconloveyouplz:

This is a very powerful and thought provoking image... especially when viewed in order with the previous two!! Each person can interpret in a slightly different way (I'm good at that, ask Lawrence!! LOL) but in the end, your point is well made. I feel like this image is kind of like, "Its not the journey, its the destination." Because what you are saying is quite true. Our deeds and destiny (karma if you will) always comes back to us. It might not be the journey we think it will be, that is for Lady Destiny to decide... but the destination is always the same. Without exception. :clap: Well done.

I'm very glad for your words, i like the way you are, you know that.

As a matter of fact, are your comments to Laurence the reason why i knew the great human being you are, then, i saw your beautiful gallery, and, well, we've been talking since then.

You are right, it is about the destination, but humans only thinks selfishly in their "journey", without even caring about their destination, or how good or bad they're acting at the moment, and yes, "karma", sooner or later comes back to everybody.

And Lady Destiny, she gives us a lot of oportunities to pay our debts on life and possibly correct our wrong way, but, anyone cares?... human destination could be "Hell", and, on that late moment, what could be the reason to "then" ask: why?, what did i do wrong?...

Thanks, dear Angelles, thanks for "keep the spirits up", appreciated. :heart:

Powerful work once again! Concept and execution are spot on. All elements in the image very well depict the eternal punishment that human race, through its negligent actions, is allowing to happen. The whole series is outstanding by all means. Thoughtful work of Art, Guillermo! :clap:

You're most welcome! So glad to be among your circle of friends. For this, I'm thankful! :heart:

Thanks my dear Anabela, you are so supportive as well... i love the way you think, because we are so alike!. :D

We've been talking about this painful truth: Human Race and its actions... well, what can we do?, that's the way it is.

I'm very glad with your appreciation on my "Red Angel" series, because you know, it attempts to be a big general reflection, something like: WHAT ARE WE DOING?, and, WHY ARE WE DECIDED TO BE THE WAY WE ARE?... thanks for liking my work, because you know that i love yours.

I remember your words: let us keep on dreaming for a better world… that still is a great idea!

And about our friendship: i hope that you already know, that you are very, very special to me. :heart:

Look deep inside, can't change the world but you can change yourself .......

That's a great and interesting chorus, and indeed we need to change, because the phrase before this chorus is the heaviest one: "No cure, no cure, for the disease called mankind"... but, if we can change ourselves, then, not everything is lost.
Thanks my dear Anabela. :icongiantlovehug: One and the same.

An angel be denied the right to fly should be like a human being incapable of dreaming. A hell in his own mind! What would be of humanity without a dream?

The act of paying for the consequences of our actions begins in our mind and then into concrete form (events), but I honestly don't know which way is the worst. I believe that when the mind punishes us (consciousness) for something wrong that we practice or speak, can be one of the worst hells, the worst 'judge'.

Your work is excellent, the 'demonic form' of this angel are perfect, the work looks very real, really scary us and take pity of this poor creature.

Congrats! :clap:

And thank you so much for this wonderful dedication, I'm honred! I loved!! :hug:

Well, now you did it to me, you got the concept in a perfect way... the analogy with the Human dreams is so sensible and appropriated.

You are right about the two ways of paying, and about that the worst of both is the mental one, because, with the physical "pain", with time, we tend to get used to it, and then, we can "beat it" in certain way, but, how can we beat our own consciousness?...

Besides, Mental Hell can come in many different ways... one way or another, sooner or later, we won't escape from our Destiny... so, we better be good kids!

Thanks for your kind words on my red angel, and yes, he is a poor creature!

The honor is mine, and i love that we are friends. :D :hug:
