Experimented with some painting, traditionally. One or two brushes with a painting texture. Very few overlays, tried to just choose colors this time (It worked cause I was going for desaturation which is what I always lean towards lol) -- I feel pretty good this week, but sometimes I just feel exactly like this picture, so made this to show how it feels sometimes. Im sure some of you all can relate. I had no idea what I was doing with this, just kinda experimented with it. Thanks for all of you who gave words of encouragement when I posted the sketch, helped me a lot

The style fits the emotion so damn well. I hope you have recovered from your time of sadness. I would love to see more pieces like this.

It looks so good. I really like the emotions in it and the mood the colours achieve. But on a flipside, dont be sad, ponys are back up with new Episodes :)

Feel like that every week and it's just getting worse. All we can do is hope I guess..

I actually really like this picture. It's not your usual upbeat fare, but it's refreshing to see more emotional and down-to-earth pictures like this one. Your experiment with the painting style really helped with showing the emotion.

I'm happy you feel better now. I've definitely felt this way recently. You just need to push through these kind of things because life has a way of sorting itself out eventually :) (Smile)

I like the painting style, but I don't think the rain really fits, since it's not in the same style.
Overall, quite well done though!!

I think a lot of us have had that feeling. Some more than others.

I really like the raindrops on the window (if that's what it was meant to be).

I know this feeling very well, yeah. Even though I'm passed whatever happened in my past, sometimes I still want to lock myself away for a day.

Thankfully I've got a hand full of friends who understand. And thankfully I've got a bed full of plushies to drop in to when shit sucks, feels good man :3


On a more Serious note: I really love this art work, the emotion is very well captured. And I like the the 'smudgy' paint lines, gives it allot more feeling, and it sets the mood quite well.
