when everything loses it's meaning
I think the most of us have shared this hopeless feeling. When all magic in the world is murdered as you grow older. All wonder gone. When you realise you are running short of high wire to run on... How do I put into words how I interpret it... I did not make this, it's not my vent art, and I really have no right to try to describe something that was not my creation. I do not want to step any boundaries, but in the same breath, I do want to give an interesting and.... (not a half ass comment). Especially with something as important as this. I so rarely have the motivation to give a good constructive comment.... so here it goes....
The grayness, reminds me of something industrial, sapped of color, of magic, inspiration. The static really adds to that. Like a.... broken television, void of color and functionality. The lines of the swallow all over are SHARP and crisp. I like that. I'm going to guess they used MS Paint for some parts (line-art), but I could be terribly wrong. If I am right though, it goes to show that an artist can shine with any program. The anatomy is on POINT as well, I must add. Very good.
(TL;DR of the following, personal life experience, and my own interpretation and thoughts I was having while viewing this.)
You know, I haven't sat down and drawn anything in months, and I have not seriously sat down and drawn something good in YEARS. I kinda went down after all the past traumas in the last few years. So, I sort of feel like a bird stripped of its wings too... I've had my time, motivation, and inspiration forcefully ripped out when losing my home, my father, my family, my health, and nearly my husband. I was brutally embarrassed, savagely harassed, threatened, and utterly betrayed by one of my own family members, and withdrawn ever since like a mangled animal. I've been too busy blocking it all out with media... rather than picking up a pencil and doing what I once was good at. Art kinda lost its meaning for me. So have my goals. I'm hoping I get a better outlook on such things when I start taking better care of myself. Because as it is right now, I am kinda only existing. I need to make a purpose for myself again.
Mmm.... cherries! So happy...... yet strange....
I want to fall into a false sense of security among these beautiful colors in this strange alien fluffy paradise. Wait... alien.... makes me feel a little uneasy. Do the branches look like upside down roots? I think they do. Nevermind that.... look at the cotton candy like leaves, they are whisking away into the clouds! And the pink water pooling into the center... looks like strawberry milk! And the grass.... gives me funny flashbacks of a 70's shaw wagon carpet. Haha... It looks so fuzzy. What an odd paradise.... but almost too paradise like.
Okay so critique was actually asked for in this one.
The world does feel pretty damn small some days. Just like a ring, same stuff every day. Feels like we're getting no traction.
You know what it sort of reminds me of? Heh... sort of a stray cheerio in a bowl of cereal. I guess that's sort of poetic for our huge universe. I feel pretty insignificant now. Anyways, lovely abstract like piece here. It's simple but builds a bigger picture. Actually, the simplistic style is one of the hottest things right now, and I too am a fan.
I would hang this in my bedroom!
Anyway I spent enough time on this I guess. Haha, I hope Aeonae doesn't mind. I very rarely get unlazy enough to feature someone, heh. And I think they are most certainly worthy to get my butt talkative on Deviantart again. Their gallery made me feel a little bit better today. I want them to get more comments, and some critiques. Give this deviant some nice constructive critiques guys! Look at my comments here for some inspiration if that helps! I hope you enjoyed their gallery as much as I have! Thank you for your time to view this feature!
