How did you make this work:
This is a speculative conceptual illustration based on the character Asimov Vasquez from a personal developing IP titled "No One Lives Forever". The character is shown plummeting towards the Earth as a metaphor for his self-destructive habits and beliefs; the image is intended to be seen both upright and reversed as it represents both perceived rising ascension and the true reality of it.
