Scars of the Past

“Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you.” -unknown

If you follow my other sites you probably already saw this one :XD: This one is more personal work. Two years ago I went through a surgery and I just wanted to paint something related to that since every year I try to remind myself of that day. Pain will always be part of my life, but I’m happy as long as I can sit and draw. So, I drew this drawing as a thank you to all hospital staff, surgeon, and my family who supported me and kept me company. :la:

What brushes/settings do you use? I live for your cross hatching and the texture in your colouring 😍
Valentina-Remenar's avatar
I pretty much always use default PS brushes for these and textures which I have are by Yuri Shwedoff... they're not much visible haha :XD:

Nice of them to have supported you! :D I like the quote too, I hope it was with the drawing when you gave it to the hospital! (Tell me you did gave it to them)
Valentina-Remenar's avatar
Thanks a lot :iconlawooplz: And I still didn't get a chance to visit the hospital, since I mostly draw and deal with other stuff. But yes, I'd give quote with it :D Last year I managed to bring bunch of prints to them, will see when I'll manage to do that this time :XD:
