So I attempted a realistic drawing. Realism is really Interesting to attempt. I gotta say drawing real skin can be very difficult. I was zooming in a lot. I think I might still like to retouch It a little bit because I think I can still make it better.
I guess I’ll explain the whole concept of this sketch.
As I already explained before my brothers death, my parents immediate divorce afterwards, loosing the home I grew up in, seeing the horribleness of animals going extinct and the world being polluted to death, and humanity suffering, life was tough.
I have this tendency to really not want to go on living because I just don’t want to deal with a huge unexpected drama, loss, or trauma.
I keep on holding on though because I know in my heart living is beautiful. I had had crazy salvia death trips where I swear I died and lost everything that connected me to this reality. I did my best to come back here and was ecstatic when I came back to the “real world”.
The rose I’m holding represents the Hidden beauty of life. Sometimes I feel trapped, like no matter what I do I’m going to get hurt, but I have been able to hang in there.
It really is worth holding on to and I hope I never forget.
