Bit moody as of late and kinda binged a bit much on Gundam 00 and anybody who's seen it knows how emo that show gets

So got inspired to do something emotive.

Decided to go back to Open Canvas again to
sketch and shade this piece.

oh here is the original!

I think it is very nice in black and white sketch.

Looking at this, I feel like a classical Chinese poem is coming to mind...

Oh, you musta seen :iconmariangts: color work then?

This was one of my art pieces that I am proud of in showing sadness. So I am glad you enjoyed it ^^

I am interested in hearing this poem actually if you care to share, as i would like to know more about older words of wisdom.

oh... I was not thinking of a particular poem... it makes me think of a classical type of poem. ^_^

But I think some can fit. Hey... I have an idea... Have you ever heard of the classic "A Dream of Red Mansions"? Our 红楼梦.

In it, there is a set of 12 poems, very sad, all about the lives of the female characters in the story.

Maybe, if you found the poems, you can draw the muscular girls version of them hahaha...

Just read a wiki page on it. Sounds very interesting.
All the girls personalities and descriptions are quite well fleshed out. The author really prided himself on creating nuanced and varied female characters and some with strong personalities
Particularly Wang Xifeng 0_0
Still the descriptions and personalities shown are already enough for me to form an idea of there beauty and expressions...

even Jia Baoyu seems fascinating

I really have to find a copy of these poems and find the time to read them. Might bring more inspiration.
Have you read any of these poems yourself?

mmmmhh...still 12 is alot and there is a level of ability im still working on...how bout this for now ill start small see if I cant get 1 or 2 outta my spare time. And as an appreciation for this nice little token...which one of the 12 draws your interest

When I was a child I used to read, but have not read for a long time... but I remember the 12 poems :) I think there is a second set of 12 poems as well... but it's ok I will not scare you even more hahaha...

I am sure your ability is more than enough already :) but please take it at your own pacing...

Xifeng is such an interesting... to me she is the ultimate "bitch"... maybe you can try her?

People say that to me alot XD

but I'm sure you'll understand being a fbb or a physique artist in your own right that getting from where you were before to here, required dedication, focus and pushing your limits. To both be able to look back at your accomplishments and to shape yourself into the ideal form. Looking back i can see how setting personal standards that are never "just enough" is what got me here and i look forward to setting the bar and cresting that next hill.

As for your pick, it seems that we are in agreement. Ill have to sit around and imagine her in my mind for a bit.I've been playing with the "warrior" type lately, its fun X3

Ah and its nice that you read these as a child, was probably a wonderful to experience things at that age.
Miss those carefree days..

Ahh yes... I admire the dedication of an artist :) Yes I see your meaning... it is the feeling of achieving and mastering the knowledge about something, that you are passionate about, constantly getting better.

I look forward to seeing your works :)

Thanx, Ill probably have something new soon :)

And dedication is an important trait. Though wondering if all that effort and sacrifice put in is worth it in the end. Does it affect you the same way?

There's a line beteween 'emo' and genuine emotion, this piece is firmly on the 'genuine' side. So expressive, and yet so incredibly subtle too.

fucking fantastic work, Jace!

love all the little details that you put into this piece -such as the flower in her and how the cloth folds around her (is that a cape or a blanket by-the-by?).

this proves why you are one of the best artists about, mate. :headbang:

Lovely emotive piece Jason. Tears always get to me ^^ her elegance touched those who lay eyes on her. Those watery eyes leads to the pathway to her powerful emotions. It pains others to see sorrow in such a beauty.

Great piece with lovely shading and emotional expression.
