the truth and the lie by erebun the truth and the lie by erebun
The grotesque creature found something peculiar, a magical mirror. When the creature looked into the mirror, it saw a reflection. It was a beautiful image emerged on the surface. Enchanted, without realizing it was a mere illusion, the ugly truth fell in love with the beautiful lie.

sorry I'm not good at writing, I tried to draw a really ugly creature but nope haha, I hope you like it anyway ;w;

The story behind the picture is really what caught my eye. The picture is gorgeous, but the story and theme behind it are quite amazing. The phrase "The ugly truth fell in love with the beautiful lie." is quite a powerful one.

I don't think he is ugly at all. He is rather beautiful.

Beauty is a matter of perspective, what is beautiful to one may be ugly to another, and vice versa. I think it has a lithe kind of beauty, and yet seems so sad.
