Broke My Own Heart by TransientArt Broke My Own Heart by TransientArt

"Broke My Own Heart"
12x9"
Charcoal, Colored Pencil, and Graphite on Vellum Bristol
February 3, 2011




For :icontwistedbeautiesclub:'s Frozen Beauty contest.

I felt the need to make another self portrait since I was feeling down this week. Worrying about really small problems that don't really matter lol. I felt pretty relaxed after making this drawing. =) I do wish I could have spent at least twice the amount of time on it that what I did, and add maybe another red element, but it's done now and is what it is.

◆◊◆Episode № 33:"Broke My Own Heart"◆◊◆

I make art vlogs via YouTube that show my art being made in a time lapse, I talk about the meaning of the piece, sometimes everyday life, and I hold mini contests with art prizes as well.

Beautiful, tragic, ouch..someone call a doctor! You have succeeded perfectly here in creating what most artists strive for, the creation of an image that moves people, emotionally, they transcend the work of art itself. There is such skill in the rendering of the drawing, viewers don't even stop to consider the artistic technique, they automatically accept it's reality and move straight on to the emotional experience the artwork invokes. It is only after this, that they stop to consider the artist's technique and style. Bravo! Oh, did I for get to say I like this drawing?

Couldn't have explained it better myself, this is what I'm always striving for in my work. I want try to get past the fact that it's an artwork and want to relay and instill an emotion in people in the best way I know how. I'm glad to know I succeeded in this one piece for at least someone.

Funnily enough, when I go to make a piece I pull out all of this emotion and sketch out an idea quickly. Afterwards I try to eliminate the emotion and focus on the technique and composition so that I can make a more aesthetically pleasing piece. I sort of switch my mind set back and forth through out the drawing trying to fill out both sides.

Thank you so much for your compliment. =)
