"Drawing is not always fun and games! Although it's fun most of the time! But it's not so beautiful and majestic as it used to be." -Takumy

"I believe that this piece represents all of us who are Artists. We are forever children in the eyes of society; dreamers of high expectations relying on the accomplishment of our goals and ourselves. We are invincible and young in that regard while our bodies grow old, weary and scarred from life and its pitfalls. While our bodies break down from the responsibilities of reality, our soul and minds remain in the stresses of our childhood, always looking for imagination and adventure. That is what makes us special for we never let go of our child-like selves and dare to dream." -MuEnLi

"As a child, we want nothing more than to grow older and become amazing adults. No one tells us about the trials and tribulations life brings. However, in presenting ourselves to the youthful and innocent, we paint a pretty picture to maintain their innocence." -waywardgal

"The world is much easier in youth but will become a challenge as one gets older...." -animechickfreak

"No matter how much hardships the adult artist goes through, she still keeps on going, because it's what she enjoys." -X12-1992

Yeah, totally me. Organised chaos and scarred for life.

But no matter of how hard that is, I still shield the kid inside me. Because that kid is my core.
It made me happy when everything around me was dark, grim and cold, so I just kept going. I never gave up, not even when I was written off.
I have a goal... I don´t care anymore how big future privations are going to be... Because I will get there and I gonna enjoy it!

I´ll still have to deploy what´s inside of me, I only recently started here. I have a shitload of experiences, now I have to turn them into something good.
If my writings and drawings will make people happy, then the kid inside me is satisfied, and my pains bearable.

Sorry for my poor English (I´m no native speaker) but the backstory of it just touched me deep.

In order for one to achieve, one must suffer.
NaitomeIya Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Life is difficult, but at least artists allow us to go to a different, happier world for a moment so that we will not break down.
Wait, is this why I'm so carefree despite the world's crapshoot? OuO
Anyway I like it how this artwork, even just in one glance, is so symbolic!

So true how bitter sweet it all is, unfortunately.  You've definitely captured the reality in this piece.

Yes,i  even often think,i wonder if  i should go on the road of Art.
ProjektBakuman Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
This image really hits hard.... The feelings are so unbearably relatable to Artists and Aspiring Artists... There are so many of us that, through the trials and tribulations of life, will give up our passions. But a select few will choose to continue and endure through those trials and keep the passions, until we finally see the fruits of our labors. Sometimes though, we wonder to ourselves, Will the fruits that we've worked ever so hard for, be sweet enough to mask the bitterness of our labors?

Somtimes I think to myself, If I were to make one, and just one big break in my career, would i sell out my creations for money?
Almost all the time I find myself saying Yes. (But, only if its enough so that i dont have to worry so much about the responsibilities of life.)In the shadow of those creations I've whored out to the masses, I'll be working on the things that I want to and that I wholeheartedly believe in, even if they do end up staying in shadow of their more popular bretherin, they will be what i want, and how i want them to be...!

That is My Goal.

Very, very inspiring. ^u^ This drawing and the comments above really show how important an artist can feel. We not only draw, or create things for the sake of creating... We try to express ourselves in positive ways, no matter how much hardships life is giving us. OuO

Why does the Doctor's Appointment have to be on September 24?


I guess what animechickfreak said that "The world is much easier in youth but will become a challenge as one gets older...."

It's actually true.. haha kinda having a hard time on life too..

And what 
Takumy said "Drawing is not always fun and games! Although it's fun most of the time! But it's not so beautiful and majestic as it used to be."

kinda having a hang on what he/she said..


Birthday's On Sept.24 go to a doctor!!
SanPichu Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2013
It's nice to see how much a child looks up to an adult without knowing how much responsibility the adult really has. It's another portrayal on how innocent one is when they were young. :)
JustV23 Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist

That is exactly how i feel right now. I hardly find any time to draw something for myself for quite some time.

Drawing used to be my joy and freedom, but now i can't feel that anymore. i have to draw things for others which is draining all my interest in drawing, because it became a job.

Now it feels like i can't draw anymore. It hurts even trying to draw something for myself, but i still do it even thought i should be drawing things for others right now...
