Weight of the World Picture

Another emoticon I've been wanting to do for a while. I think all of us have been to the point where we feel we are carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders. In mythology, parables were created to visualize such things. In this case, the story of Atlas, who had to carry the world, literally, on his back.

This took a couple of hours to do. I had a huge data-download at work which took several hours and tied up my computer; I could not go on the internet nor could I do any heavy processing. Thankfully, I was able to work in my paint program, so I could do this. Otherwise, I think the idea would have sat on the shelf for a while longer.

Edited: Added a couple of panels to smooth out the facial transitions.
