"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
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.
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!
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.
This picture is amazing x))
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."
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...
