    Neat piece. It's a little tough to tell that she's wearing a hat though. At first I thought it was just high hair. Might want to add some folds in the light.

    thx for dropping by my SB
    nice sketches here, really. I like those faces the way you shade them - gentle and elegant. Might check out that robot/human thing's skull. I don't know what a manga skull looks like, but well
    nice BIG painting in the garage. I've been asked to paint a whole wall in someones apartment, but I have no idea what to draw yet

    keep it up

    i was asked about color again, so i whipped this up in response, i suppose this sketchbook is a good place to house it.

    Quote Originally Posted by Grief
    I used to have reoccurring dreams that I could walk through walls. The trick was that I had to be perfectly perpendicular, I remember thinking that it helps if you lift up your feet a little bit. I took a few strides and closed my eyes right before the wall. I land so effortlessly on the other side of the wall. No hole, no breaking, I disperse and move through and form again. It seems so natural and easy.

    I have never tried it while awake, too ashamed by my dreams of being able to bend and alter my own reality. Maybe I could walk through the wall, if I believe in myself and try hard enough. But I never do, and instead I find a door and walk through. Doors are such a let down, its a preexisting route, made by someone else, a place where anyone can pass through the boundary of walls.

    Earlier this January I had an emotional breakdown, of which my art was stricken with the lasting affects. I can't use color. I have trapped myself in a bleak room without the radiance of color. My emotions in reality are transforming themselves conceptually into my work. There is no vibrancy or color in my life, no one that radiates to give reason for using color. At one point in my life I had dedicated myself endlessly to another, someone I could use to reflect the color of my world. Color made sense then, and in her absence it seems so tired and pointless. I may find reason to use color again and escape the confining room of the black and white world I've painted myself into.

    I could use color, I could open a door and walk through it. There would be no satisfaction in using it though. I would feel so defeated by using color so meaninglessly. Color can provide many solutions, but all the routes have been used before, doors made by someone else when they needed color as an answer. I need to create my own door, a solution to escape my problem. I need to become a craftsman to build my own option for escape.

    Until then I am surrounded by lifeless, colorless walls waiting for someone to shine through the walls with blinding hues to guide me out, or I must learn to walk through walls and find my own exit.
    more perspective, the library this time.
