Flower Bleeding Colour by DestinyBlue Flower Bleeding Colour by DestinyBlue
</b>Sometimes colours don't look as bright as they used to...



To me, in my head, everything went grey for a bit. The drawings I was working on I couldn't colour right, it was all dull steels and browns when I wanted light and bold. I just wasn't seeing things right. But I still needed to draw, I had to paint something. So I needed a picture to fit the colours I could still work and that would represent my situaton.
And so this one came... the girl sits here and tries her hardest to stop the colour draining out her flower and world. There's more to it, but as the viewer I'll let you work it out :)

Drawing these helps me get my feelings out rather than lets me dwell. They're personal to share which in some ways I like and in others is rather scary.

I'm feeling better now thanks, coming out of it. Like the painting, bright horizons ^^

Peace, love and colours,
~Blue x

Blue. As long as I watch you, the colours of the world will never go. You bring a torch to others who are lost in the dark. I will always Watch you no matter what.

I think the flower represents her heart bleeding out. She's losing hope, but all she need do is turn around.

That's what I got out of it, anyway.

I don't see it like she is trying to hold back the colour, i would say she realized that there is a bigger boring and grey world around hear and let hear own colourful little world grow and make the big boring world more colourful. ;D

I truly love your drawings and style and how you draw. It is like you are drawing it in simple ways yet the message is behind the art itself. I also draw the same way.

To me it looks like she is left alone; everyone she trusted betrayed her and now she is doing her best to hold onto the hope she has left. But it's slowly fading....
......

A-also... You did a great job. You're a really great artist.

It looks to me like she's sitting in a submerged graveyard, mourning, the last of her world seeping away from her. The last thing she has, draining into an endless pool of sadness, and she can't do a thing about it.

I love the scene. And the expression on the girl. But most of all, that glowing, leaking flower. It's symbolic for something, I think..but really. it's so vivid, glowing and pink. I LOVE IT!!

Stellar work :D :iconilavplz:

what i learned about shaders
to make normal colors bright 
just darken the background and lighten up a little area around the color
= glowing
