this is how i feel by LilleahWest this is how i feel by LilleahWest
OLD art, done back in early college, first semester out of high school. stressful year, i took on too many classes, things were not so great at home, i seemed to never get enough sleep, it was new place and new people and i hardly knew anyone but oddly enough this drawing helped that as the guys next to me saw me working on it and were awestruck and totally into it.

i drew this one during math class, i have struggled with math ever since it quit using real and whole numbers (fractions and a+b DOES NOT WORK in my ADHD ridden brain) so math made feel exceptionally shitty and it was my first class of the day and i had just had an argument in the car on the way to school...and so that is when this was born.

this thing is MORBID D:

it is something that used to be beautiful but the more bad karma/emotion/atmosphere there is around it it the more ugly it gets, it is the little things that hurt the most as they add up quickly and are not handled with the same gusto as a real tragedy or problem. the environment it is exposed to has gotten so harsh it has begone to bleed and cries with the physical and emotional pain, it's body shows the damage being done to it's soul....

i did not post this long ago because it was something i did not want my family to see, but i am much MUCH happier and stress free now (school was a big part of the stress) so i am posting this in hopes of inspiring others to get through hard times as it does get better

This is amazing. So much detail, and it contains a lot of emotion...it evokes a lot of memories in me. It's amazing how art can truly depict the happenings in one's soul.

Wow. Id say I really relate to that. o_o
And even the math bit. That was EXACTLY when math made no more sense to me. Plus, its surprisingly like my watermark and symbol. (Depressing and evil as it is really.)

All the little things just keep building, and I tend to try and push them away to their own little dark corner.

I'm glad you feel better now though. Remember, that you can always draw on that past stress as a form of art...so long as you do so carefully. :)

A well made pice to describe how hard life can be as well as just giving some hope and encouragement to overcome it. It shows a very clear point and is quite awakening. *nods* excellent work.

I totally understand this. It must have been very hard to go through. The drawing is amazing though! I like the details and the emotions in it. :+fav:

looking back on that year it was not really that horrible, i mean no one diedm no one got hurt, we did not lose our house, i was not being abused, or anything like that...but there was a lot of small daily negatives that really began to add up. it was like water dripping on a stone, if it drips long enough then it can actually make a hole in the rock. small daily stressers and arguments take a toll on me faster than a major incident because with something major one gets this mind set of "be strong i can get over this" but small daily things get brushed under the rug untill it builds up enough to hurt.
