Dwelling

My problem is that I tend to expect so much from those I care for the most. Because I love them, I tend to expect such love back. But each moment of disappointment just hurts and makes me feel more and more raw, I have to learn to let go -- it's hard not to dwell.

Sorry I have not drawn in so long, this isn't even worth posting .. It is a very quick rough pencil drawing painted over in opencanvas. I have so many drawings that I have in mind but I don't have the time anymore >>

opencanvas, mechanical pencil
45 minutes

psshaw your quick pencil drawings kick the ass on my 30+hours spent on arts. I'm loving this picture, the dramatic lighting and her eyes, all dark, they look almost alien. It IS worth posting in my opinion, i adore seeing your art, if you think something isnt worth posting just think, Sui will love to see this! {Even if she hasnt been on dA for a year TT__TT Sui will always come back to see gorgeous arts <3}

You may feel like dwelling on your limits or your fears of no one's love as big as yours. Don't do it. A perfect prescription for a squandered, unfulfilled LOVE is to accommodate self-defeating feelings while undercutting your finest, most productive ones. This is beautiful your skill is undefined i see this canvas and i am blown away keep up the great work you are way ahead of your time... You will become phenomenal =D
