Sometimes colours don't look as bright as they used to...



To me, in my head, everything went grey for a bit. The drawings I was working on I couldn't colour right, it was all dull steels and browns when I wanted light and bold. I just wasn't seeing things right. But I still needed to draw, I had to paint something. So I needed a picture to fit the colours I could still work and that would represent my situaton.
And so this one came... the girl sits here and tries her hardest to stop the colour draining out her flower and world. There's more to it, but as the viewer I'll let you work it out :)

Drawing these helps me get my feelings out rather than lets me dwell. They're personal to share which in some ways I like and in others is rather scary.

I'm feeling better now thanks, coming out of it. Like the painting, bright horizons ^^

As always, thank you. Your support makes me smile.

It would be hard to hide behind a smile...


Most of time time no one sees you cry, you can wipe the tears away and carry on like you're fine. Just wondered what it would be like if tears left physical scars on you. Awful I suppose, as then everyone would know... but perhaps then you might get the support you needed. What would you do if you saw this girl...?
I imagine sad tear scars would fade over time, and happy tears would restore the skin like new :)

Yep, another piece of mine about what we show and what we hide. Things are much better for me now thanks, although what I've gone through has given me new perspectives I'm keen to get out of me and into my art. Hope this one isn't to dark or sad a drawing, just a concept I wanted to express :) Explored a bit more semi-realism in the face, similar to my Last Piece by DestinyBlue piece; was very fun to colour, think I probably need to push shadows deeper and loosen up without being scruffy XD

Maybe it's not always about trying to fix something broken. Maybe it's about starting over and creating something better.

Picking up the pieces and re-building yourself can be a tricky experience. The pieces never seem to fit quite right into the old spaces. It's a breath of fresh air to realise they don't have to, you can create something different out of the pieces, something better. You will never go back to being exactly who you were, but you can be someone wiser and stronger.

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
While I've had a tough experience recently, it really has made me stronger. I'm coming to terms that things will never be the same, but I'm okay with that, stuff changes. I want to make that most of what I have now :)
Enjoyed drawing this, I hope her expression doesn't come across as to sad as it's supposed to be a hopeful piece - I do hope she finds her last piece soon.
:) It's more sketchy than I would usually like and there's some obvious flaws that are already bugging me, but I tried something different with the lighting and she doesn't look to bad for being underlit XD

Thank you, as always :heart:

~Love you moogle, we share our pieces (cake and otherwise :))

Why did it happen that way? Did I do the right thing? What could I have said? Why didn't I say more? Could I have changed anything?

Why can't I concentrate on anything else...?

I think many of us have been there at some point; going over and over things in our head, things we can't change but we can't get off our mind.
I wanted to give her that kind of expression where shes thinking hard but not focusing on anything... kinda like looking through you. The expression where everyone asks if you're okay XD

Bang.

I always loved the phrase 'the eyes are the window to the soul' and wanted to convey that here, but if the windows broken who knows what might be inside...
The drawing, while linked, isn't so much about suicide and suicidal ideation, but more about how the eyes can give away someones feelings if your prepared to look deep enough.

Drawn in some darker times for me, things are getting better, I really wouldn't be posting this if they weren't.

Thank you for your support everyone. It's very touching, I know I'm not alone :)

...So I can't be hurt again.


She gave her heart to someone and they gave it back to her. She's trying to repair the damage, and wants to hide her soul away so no one else will be able to hurt her again.

Second in the seires of drawing of Paige


While creating this, I was also musing on how it mirrored my artistic situation. I put my heart into my drawings and then offer them on the internet for all to scrutinise, it can be really daunting thing. A lot of the stuff I draw is personal and is never seen by anyone else, so I appreciate the overwhelming support I get when I share with you guys. Sometimes you just want to hide away. This piece isn't born of current guy troubles for me (I have a wonderfuly supportive partner) but from discussions with other people about shared experiences... and bleh, other stuff..

Been enjoying exploring this style more, I know it's another portrait, but I wanted to keep it intimate, like the viewer is close with her and feeling what shes feeling.

The glass will fog over before anyone can read it...

People will just see the smile.

On one hand we say were fine with the other we cry out for help.

Thought I'd post the full version of: I cut it down and posted the smaller version because I thought perhaps this one was a little... extreme. But since things haven't got better and wont before Christmas it's probably now an understatement of my feelings.

Sorry for uploading similar things, brain wont let it go. I'll draw pretty things when the colours come back

Thank you for your amazing support.

She's seen all worlds though those eyes. Her freckles map constellations, and a billion burning galaxys dance through her hair. But at half a billion years old, she's still only a child...

Inspired by a time when I looked into my boyfriends eyes and I'm sure I saw a star float past; so much going on in that beautiful mind :)

Something simple and colourful, had a bit of fun messing around and keeping it light hearted ^-^

Wipe the tear away, not the reason; remember why you cried and let it make you stronger.

Her tears have merged with water as she sits there, she tears her dress which she once loved into flower petals, breathing new life into old memories. She's cried enough.

Shes not supposed to be Rapunzel, though after I added colour I was like 'damn, maybe I'll try and make her look like rapunzel' then quickly changed my mind XD haha, She's an OC, I just wanted to make something glow and the hair worked better than the flowers :)

I could stare int those eyes all day...

Thank you everyone *smiles* as usual, I couldn't be doing this without your support :hug:

We carry them with us, wherever we go, invisible to others, ever present to ourselves. They are our Dark Passengers. Our troubles, our fears, our anxietys. You don't know who travels with them unless they wish to tell you.

They manifest when we go though tough times and weigh heavy on our shoulders. But it's not hopeless; we can harness them.
As we get through the hard times and come out the other side, our dark passengers turn to light. Our light passengers stay with us to give us hope that there is sun after rain, they give us knowledge that things will get better and appreciation of what we have.
This image represents the transformation of the girls dark passengers, while they're not completely light yet, there is a strange beauty about there transformation. She is getting better and holding onto hope.

I explored a similar concept in my piece. You become stronger rather than weaker by getting through tough things.
I am pleased to have many light passengers now, but this is only because I have had the dark. Drawing helps me transform mine, and all the support I get when I post art here is wonderfully uplifting. I always enjoy realising concept like this :D

I haven't seen Dexter, but he calls his inner darkness and urge to kill as his 'dark passenger' as well :)
