2018 in One Image by RoanNna 2018 in One Image by RoanNna
Let me introduce to you my current work. I'm so excited about it's developing, so I couldn't wait more and decided to upload a wip-crop-here. Llama Emoji-10 (Shy) [V1] 
This would be my answer to the question "How is your 2018 going?"
How do you think, what is the emotion I tried to capture? Any reply would be helpful, because if it is not readable enough, I should change it into something better.

PS Oh, could you describe the passing year by just one single image? It would be really interesting for me to see.
PPS Hope to finish it before New Year.

Lovely (and also terrifying)

  Great brushwork, colours and some great edges on the face.

This is so emotive and beautiful. If it is not too personal to ask, what about 2018 made you feel this? To me it seems... grieving, but of an angry sort. Like when you are so upset that you could cry, but your emotions are so fired that your eyes are dry, and so that the only relief, the only reprieve is just to... to just scream, to release it all. This seems like the scream before sobbing, I suppose.

Unbelievably how subtle you could feel this piece of unfinished art, I'm so grateful that you shared your thoughts. Hug 
What made me feel like this? Without being too specific, I might say that a lot of things: leaving my friends and family, losing a close old friend because of growing misunderstanding and as a result huge quarrel, losing a job, constant failure in art-related stuff (like different competitions and art-jobs), increasing feeling of self-worthless...

She's in utter rage, but she can't be welding a weapon, because her eyes are shut. I see her clench her fists in desparation, yelling curses at the gods of fate ... Very dense and impressive picture!

I see the primal emotion of a human about to destroy, I can almost see her arms swinging up with an axe or some other weapon. Well done!

Really great. My perception of the emotion you've captured in this piece, is that she's just had someone she loves struck down and she's reacting with intense fury fueled by adrenaline. It's raw. It's gut reaction. Like I said, really great.

Katy Perry's "Roar" song came to my mind when I saw this picture! J-hope smiling (CE) :love: 

"I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter
Dancing through the fire
'Cause I am a champion, and you're gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
'Cause I am a champion, and you're gonna hear me roar!"
This is such a powerful piece! I am totally in love with the meaning behind the pic, and your painting skills are GOALS! Star Trek Nodding (Community Emoticon)

When I found comments like yours it always melts my heart. I like to discover different points of view on my art. Sometimes people describe in words what I wanted "to say" much better than I would ever do.

Thanks for your wonderful comment! :hug:
And yes, both of us, the red haired woman and me, are pretty much exhausted. Llama Emoji-54 (Resting) [V3]

Very nice. She looks like she's in some hellish turmoil. I like the colors. I really like how her hair on the right side looks fuzzy and her face is more defined.

I'm bouncing between anger or some kind of battle cry. It's very beautiful, how you've done it o3o Was I close? 

If I had to describe 2018 in one image, it'd probably have to be this:

Oh, you weren' t close... because you were god damn RIGHT. Llama Emoji 27 (Awesome) [V2]  I was thinking about overcoming struggles in life (aka battle with your fears, problems and so on) and at the same time I wanted to paint active emotion, because telling stories can't be complete without clear emotional statement in your picture. So I decided to draw an anger, although it is hard to tell why my choice fell into this particular emotion and I have no idea how I did it. Llama Emoji-56 (Hiding) [V3]
