I came up with the idea for this when I first heard a song called Porcelain by Skott (remixed by AWAY). The remix sounded amazing!! The lyrics I related to the most are the sentence I typed at the beginning of this caption. At the time I was struggling with so many things in my life changing, as well as the people in it. I was stuck in this paradox of wanting to let somebody go and move on ahead, but wanting to still cling on as well. I’m sure everybody can relate to that. The mask on the girl is falling off, revealing her true intentions. What are they, though? That’s up to the viewer. He is facing the other way, but still choosing to hold on as well. They should probably be letting each other go, or else they’ll keep sinking though, won’t they? You can probably consider the drawing/concept straightforward. Technically speaking, this was way out of my comfort zone. I usually just stick to portraits, and small ones at that. This is a 16 x 20 inch digital drawing, so at 300 dpi, it was HUGE on my computer. It also has two figures. When I started this I knew it’d be challenging, but I wanted to try anyway. I feel like in finishing this, it’s kind of symbolic of where I am at now artisitcally and what I can handle, even if it took me a year to find the motivation to complete it. I want to start doing more complex projects/ideas like this in the future, so that’s a goal I’m placing for myself looking on ahead. I’m also at a completely different place mentally/personally now, so it was interesting looking back on this feeling while finishing it, a feeling I have long since let go of. That’s all! If you read all the way through, my heart goes out to you for taking the time to do so!!!!
