Instability

This artwork here is my first experimental foray into abstract art.

The title, of course, describes what I tried to portray here: the everlasting cycle of instability within my own life as well as others. I felt quite sad and depressed at the time I was inspired to make this, so I tried to incorporate my emotions and thoughts about my life, others, and the world in general to create this.

Of course, I would love to hear your feedback on this, and what you saw in this. Call it a masterpiece, call it a pathetic attempt disguised as abstract art, call it whatever you want, I just want responses and some constructive criticism on this. I hope you like this.

Materials: Graphite on paper.

it's very interesting in the randomness it portrays, and the great thing about abstract art is that it allows everyone to see it in a different light.

The point of abtract it is what it is. Best form of art in my opinion. Depression - you got to be - that is it.... and welcome to the world of the abstract artist - keep on with it - you have something there! Joy(ish) :)

‘There is an art, it says, or rather, a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. … Clearly, it is this second part, the missing, which presents the difficulties.’ Ahh… me the beautiful Douglas Adams philosophy…………..;)

if u flip it upsidedown it kinda looks like the opening of a cave to outside and theres ice....watever u call them, those sharp ice pieces that hang from the tops of caves in the winter, xD, is hanging from the cieling and theyre usually prone to fall, they are really unstable. it kinda matches with the meaning, so i just wanted to put that out there. :D

you finally managed to get a higher resolution, but now is too much xD, a higher resolution work well with a high detailed work, a rather simply work (cartoon for example) shouldn´t use too high resolution

I made the same mistakes at the first, it looks great from afar and with a zoom you spot all the mistakes xD

it seems you used the finger to make the shading, its pretty rare to use the finger for that purpose, it generally give a blurry and kind of "dirty" shade, when i was in high-school my art teacher said the same to me xD

Now I've adjusted the full view size to only 900 pixels. Hope this helps.

yes, that helps a lot, i did the same for my traditional works, scan at 600dpi and dont show the full resolution in da

All of my works have been in 300 dpi, just so you know. I'm considering making low-res scans to make my art look better on the Internet. Yes, I used my pinky to do the shading because it makes it uneven (part of the "instability" theme) and because I thought it added a more personal element.

Nice to hear your feedback. :)

no,limiting the full view size in a high resolution scan will look better than scanning at lower quality (60dpi for example)

about the pinky, just for you to know, i have never used my fingers for shading (at least not since i joined da), it´s up to you to choose of course
