Shattered Raina by AngelTheCatgirl Shattered Raina by AngelTheCatgirl
Okay this one I -LOVE- I did this near the end of the semester when it was wicked cram time. I had like... one week to do over a month's worth of work. I was feeling like the world was coming down around me with the sleepless nights and the constant pressure of trying to get it all done in time. I sat down and decided I had to draw something, ANYTHING to take my mind off it.

I ended up doing this little number in just over an hour total; and I'm usually a very very slow artist--and yes, I do see this as "art." Anyone who knows me knows that I don't consider myself an artist and I don't do art, I just draw shit. But THIS is something I can really be proud of. I was able to convey the emotion directly into the picture, which I've never been able to do. I still feel uneasy when I look at her, but it's just.. So good.

And for those of you wondering, yes, that is RAina. rAina, the non-crazy looking white panther that is the sister to Reina. Reina pretends to be crazy... Raina pretends to be sane. It's a little more than just that, but this comment is fucking massive as is so I should end it.

Good to see that you are back and posting artstuffs!

Ahhh... the insanity of college! Yay! I do believe this picture captures it perfectly. Totally snagging her face to use as a login picture for one of my many computers.

This reminds me of a realization that I had. Any artist can produce something. My example is a band that most have heard of called "Metallica". Their early work was incredible. You can feel the raw emotion pouring through the speakers and flowing through you. This was because they were feeling those very emotions and pouring them out through music. Their modern stuff is acting. They don't feel that way so the emotion that is transferred is not genuine. Something to take from this: Don't put yourself into a specific emotional state to get the art out. It can be damaging in the long run.

Death Magnetic is good, the only CD they've done that doesn't live up to their quality is St. Anger. Also, like I had said the stress was caused by my incredible lack of time to get all my shit done. I would never purposely put myself in that state to draw something. Drawing is a hobby of mine, and I'd never do that to myself for just a hobby. That would be just.. silly. Lol

Death Magnetic is better. That much I do agree on. St. Anger was far less than good. Let's see if they can get their music back up to their previous standard.

It's good to know that your head is in the right place. Although, it would be interesting to see what is produced from time to time based on your overall mood and such.

After looking at this and reading your comment, I'm suddenly reminded of Higurashi no naku koro ni! mostly the episodes from season 1.
