It would be hard to hide behind a smile...
Most of time time no one sees you cry, you can wipe the tears away and carry on like you're fine. Just wondered what it would be like if tears left physical scars on you. Awful I suppose, as then everyone would know... but perhaps then you might get the support you needed. What would you do if you saw this girl...?
I imagine sad tear scars would fade over time, and happy tears would restore the skin like new
Yep, another piece of mine about what we show and what we hide. Things are much better for me now thanks, although what I've gone through has given me new perspectives I'm keen to get out of me and into my art. Hope this one isn't to dark or sad a drawing, just a concept I wanted to express Explored a bit more shading with an anime style face, similar to my piece; was very fun to colour, think I probably need to push shadows deeper and loosen up without being scruffy XD
Peace, love and inner strength,
My tears are usually dry. When I feel sad I don’t cry however much I want to. Sometimes I think that means I’m not sad enough and that makes me feel worse. Because I want to cry even if no one else sees it.
Apart from a particularly sad moment, the only time I’m really brought to tears is when listening to certain music. It’s not pop or nostalgia; actually it’s more gentle and soulful. Does that seem typical? Still, it’s my own special world that I treasure.
My face would be so, so full of them I could not even see anymore.
That was depressing, but it is sort of true.
if we could sue for every stolen idea, then a lot of hollywood, shops, advertising agencies and even fellow artists will be doomed
i think megan did a p good job in her artwork actually! while concepts are same, she at least didnt steal the artwork completely )
However, Megan's entry was barely a variation on the original concept, and as Scholastics winners tend not to win based on not only skill, but originality of the concept itself, I believe it's unfair to other competitors as she did not come up with it herself.
There was an incident a few years ago when a national Scholastic's winner had their title and prizes revoked for copying a conceptual piece from another artist on dA - A statement on the selfishness of humankind, with a woman holding a dead bird with stolen wings attached to her back. While the competitor didn't trace, the concept was obviously stolen as they made no effort to alter the original concept.
Megan's entry demonstrates enough skill and variation that I believe she should not have the award revoked, but I do not believe she deserved it either.
