Dripping shadow by transe Dripping shadow by transe
Words...What a drawback, to limit ourselves, slowing down the speed of a thought by translating it into words, to try to define the unthinkable... How could we recklessly think we could imprison what is boundless in a word? I see how words tremble when burdened with feelings...There's so much heaviness that a word fails to carry, like "loneliness" for example. Who could ever find the deep end of this feeling?
Don't mind my comment though, it's my old age talking. ^^; And on top of that I overdosed on sugar (my brother spoiled me with kilograms of candy, literally) so my judgement isn't functional at full capacity now. But more than that, it's the theorizing that I really find repulsive. :puke:
I'm VERY unhappy about this drawing, the colors just make me sad, I think I'm beginning to hate it!! I'm starting to draw another one right now.

Thank you :) I've been looking at it for hours, I can only dislike it now. It seems that I only use the colors that I don't like ^^;

That's interesting! Do you frequently dislike your work then [because of the colors]?

transe Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2012   General Artist
No, I don't like it because I can't accurately depict the image I see in my mind, I'm limited by my lack of skill. And on top of that I'm trying to teach myself to like and use even the colors I dislike... ^^;

Oh I get it! I have that problem. I can hear wonderful music in my head but am not talented enough to play it just the way I hear it. [Also I hear multiple instruments]
We'll get it one day.

By trying to express what cannot be expressed, one still says something of value, I think. I often write poems with the thought foremost in my mind that words slow down thinking, that what I'm trying to put into words is too "heavy" for words, an emotion that would seem so banal put into words, or even images. It makes me try even harder, to get just a little bit closer. Indeed, visual thinking is quicker than words, it's a scientific fact, though it can be really hard sometimes to get those images out there. As for the word "loneliness", I think for everyone its definition and overall shape is different, and it takes time to express, and to understand. Even for yourself.

Anyway, I really like this drawing as well, as I tend to like your work in general. :) I think the composition in the picture is really unique, it's as if she would be suspended in some kind of abstract mental space, where it's not certain which way is up and which is down. It reminds me of how I feel when I write poems. It's really fascinating to watch, and I think the impression is really powerful. Your recent pictures have for some reason reminded me of some work by *jurithedreamer [link] ,perhaps you have seen these too.

aww...thank you! I was afraid that people might perceive her as falling instead of being still. I guess I'm stuck with myself in this empty "abstract mental space". Unfortunately I'm limited enough not to be able to draw the image in my mind, so I'm glad that it leaves you with any kind of impression at all ^^; I wish I could paint cute stuff, that everyone would like but it looks like I can't be severed from myself.
I think that images are limitations as well as words. But since we haven't learned a "language" that allows us to express a state in any other way we're confined between these borders. And I might add, most of the important words remain unspoken, so here's another limit to a limitation :lol: I suppose that everything that I accuse others of is actually what I blame myself for, so I'm guilty of fearing and concealing the truth - which is pathetic. I can't believe that I've deviated so much again!! :omg: I keep doing that!!
I haven't seen *jurithedreamer until today, I'll definitely check out her work.

I think she indeed seems like she was suspended in the air, it's very interesting. Sometimes I feel like I would also like to be able to draw cute and popular stuff, but hey, everyone has their own style! I even made another account so I could post just cute stuff there and... It got too boring. :D Yes, many things are left unspoken, and can be read indirectly...
