My first attempt at semi-realism with only Sharpies on card (as if realism wasn't already hard enough to do). I will say, I did enjoy it, but there are things that are niggling at me.

EDIT: While I'm at it, here are also a few other submissions I've skipped --

Heart ache. To feel you don't belong, to feel alone again...Sometimes our best is not enough. Most of the time, a lot of people do not understand.

Even with music it's the same, but at least people can sorta kinda hear, in addition to seeing, the expression that goes into it. And while I admit I am more of a musician than a visual artist, not having any kind of break for 11 years in visual art only gives me evidence that I am a bad artist, rather than a good one. It only reinforces bad, rather than good.

Perhaps, 11 years is a lot of experience. Most of the arts need an incredible amount of skill and experience. And a mind that can think that way, to imagine that way. Your situation may not stem from failure. Perhaps a lack of opportunity or spotlight. We have to understand that we have brethren...a whole lot of brothers and sisters doing what we are doing but also fighting for a spot. We can be gracious and let them get that spot or...we can wait in line with the rest of em. There is also the possibility of making your own path. The choice is in your hands.
Perhaps a lack of opportunity or spotlight.

That sentence, or the essence thereof, keeps coming back to me.

I've been drawing for longer, but I say "11 years" because that was from which point I knew I would never get a break however hard I tried. Ending up last place in a competition with ten consolation prizes and three top places (there were only fourteen of us taking part) made me the subject of all sorts of abuse by parents and friends, something which I have never really recovered from. They say confidence comes from within, but if the means of gaining that confidence is severely impaired, what then? Until I heal (which might be never at this rate), I need a crutch, I need to lean on others' support.

If I made my own path, I think it ideal -- I just don't know what to do to even start on it.

Also, since I'm bringing my art thread back from the dead, here's a picture to explain what's been going on.
I've been taking to watercolours lately, after not having done so for 20 years. Seems I have a knack for it? Or so people say.

Anyway, two of the bits in the image below, i.e. the splatters, are stock; the rest is my own work. I scanned it in and removed the white background, and that's about all I could do anyway. This is for the redesign of my website, and I felt it'd be a discreet way of including my own art. Also, if visuals are often paired with genres of music, I wonder what watercolours say about the music I make.

Concept art for this song, which was drawn closer to its filming day (20 July).

Brush pen on A4 paper. No, I didn't scan this one; a friend took it on her phone camera.

Detail of what I'm working on now. Black pen + ink pencils. The idea hit me very strongly a few Sundays ago, and I was determined to draw it ever since.

I'll be sure to scan it in properly when I get the opportunity.
