I appreciate the compliment. Unfortunately, nothing else I've done has carried the same "oomph" with it.

oomph comes with practice and the ability to not be afraid of what comes out. ^_~

Afraid of what comes out? That sounds like how I wanted the "Unsprung" image to turn out. Like your comment on the mouth/butterfly drawing said, I like it but it wasn't what was in my head.

totally feel u there. in order to try and get what comes out of one's head...i guess all one can do is pursue that idea again and again until even the audience percieves it how the artist first saw it.

Wise, wise words. The few things that look like I wanted on paper (or PC), didn't represent quite what I wanted to others. The Grief drawing seemed to communicate strongly to a couple of my friends despite me thinking it was crap. *gasp* Just realized I'm playing comment-tag. That's what I get for having nothing to do on a Saturday night.

"Well, it's meant to be more of the mind-wiping despair type of thing. The kind that hits you powerfully enough that you aren't really sure if it's even about anything (even though it is) - you just feel raw emotion. I felt more or less like the sketch when I did it, which is why I haven't been able to duplicate it. Just my interpretation of an emotion that hits you like a 2x4 to the diaphragm."

I unfortunately realte to this also..and your words couldn't have summed it up better...I greive.

Thank you. I just wish I could come close to that much emotion in other pieces. The large angry man sketch for example is more pout than angry. Guess it depends a bit on my mood. Thanks again for the comment.

the gestural quality of this is nice and that fact that you didn't really shade it adds that quality of contrast which is nice...

Oh I can definately relate to that. Sometimes got literal psyical pain in my body that hurts so much that I'd gladly tear my face off for it to stop. But dun worry that stop some time ago.. when I got Advil! Yay.. ^^ and I don't even need that anymore.. yay! *dances*
