I wanted to convey terror in a trippy vibe of despair.

To me it conveys more of a feeling of sorrow than despair. The woman seems more real to me than the bunny (not sure if it's the colors or the bunny's teeth) and to me she seems more sorrowful than afraid. But that could be because I think of prayer as more about hope and relationship than despair.

Interesting painting.

Oops, it's early. I just noticed the title says prey and not pray.... Doesn't change my reaction, though.

lol, i'd call this satire - potentially poignant, but satire none the less

I think the characters are so large that there is not a lot of negative space. It feels claustrophobic. I think the colors could be even brighter and more vivid to achieve "trippy" but I dont know if possible with pastel...

Not so much terror or fear but intense sadness. The grey also contributes to that because it is muted rather than acute.

I think the persp. makes it more satirical. For terror, the bunny should be looming large on the page not equally balanced.
