I was drawing blood tears on this character and somehow I felt sad because in a way like my character my left eye was starting to lose its vision.
Looking in retrospect, I realized that the reason I held back was because it felt a bit too personal to share my issues with the world but somehow art does that.
All the amazingness in this piece deserves it!!
Oh shoot! I meant to tell you and I was forgetting XD Your piece also got picked as the headliner piece on the DA Twitter tweet for today's DDs! Look! https://twitter.com/DeviantArt/status/1363518990757203970
thank you Cat!
Yeah. same here haha. I can't even leave home without glasses.
The worse part is having to wear face mask and glasses at the same time because of Covid. My glasses always get fogged up.
OMG THE SHADING/COLORING ON THIS IS SO GOOD!!!! The colors are amazing! the lighting! Wow! And the way you did all the feathers!!!
I'm so sorry to hear about your eye, though. Maybe it's something that can be fixed? Like adjusting the glasses lens prescription, or a screen that you're looking at isn't good for you, or an allergy? I understand it's a sensitive issue right now and you might not want to talk about it, but I just wanted to encourage you to explore options/possible causes with your doctor(s).
Thank you so much B!
I believe I inherited my eyes from my mom's side of the family. Our eyes are very weak and easily get tired. My mom was recently diagnosed with macular degeneration. :'(
Thank you so much for the encouragement B! My condition isn't quite as severe yet but I can't help but think sometimes that my moms condition is just a pending eventuality for me.
(OMG that sounded kinda wrong and defeated but I'm still very much optimistic. LOL. I really appreciate the concern and advice B thank you)
