Where Does This Ocean Go? by marziiporn Where Does This Ocean Go? by marziiporn
This damn thing has taken up so much of my time that I have grown to despise it....
I don't know, maybe it will grow on me.
Once again, I havn't really done anything worth posting as far as schoolwork goes... this was an assignment for beginning drawing.
We had to do a selfportrait relating to out idea of 'home'. I just kinda through in things that remind me of childhood and being raised in california... bird of paradise plants, horses, nature mixed with urban-ness... and really old signs :shrug:

My camera was being bitchy so the fullview is kinda... pixely. Maybe when I have more time and patience I'll work on getting a clearer image.

Mostly mechanical pencil and a bit of 2H, 4H pencil.

Does anyone else think the Ghost in the Shell soundtracks are unbelievably awesome?

Wow. I like your artwork very much. I fell sometimes bad, when I look at this, but then I think that I can improve myself and you inspired me very much. At first I think you are german, because your name doesn't sound like an englisch name. I think so, but I dont's know about such things. Whatever, I want you to ask, how long did you work on this picture?

I believe that this one would be good for your scholarship portfolio... along with "Asia", "bipolar", and..."Blood I will have". I'm still scoping through your stuff, so I hope my opinion helps out.

This is great. And the Ghost In The Shell theme songs kick a lot of ass.

Absolutely stunning my friend, I have to stare at it for a bit more just to absorb it all
beleave Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2008
the histories and tales this shows are more numerous than all the lives you've led and more numinous than all the dreams that living has spawned. i will not reduce the work to words except to say the banal -- this is my favorite work in a gallery that inspires me more than any other i have encountered here. i experience regret in twinges, trembles, in spasms and babblings, chills, mud baking me shruken in the sun as it fallls from me in dirt as i move and find the regret gone replaced by discovery and delight.

thank you.

all shades -- wayne
