Hahahaha oh man i'm so lame with the song lyrics/ art thing omg
My OC, Rem. who weirdly enough looks a lot like Phyre without distinguishable coloration or clothes. OTL
Just a quick doodle, but I got really inspired to refine it and make something out of it. Pretty much everything about this doesn't make any sense, but that is the point. xD You'll have to read a bit more as to why.
Anyways, sorry for lack of art recently. ;__; So many things to do, so little time...
Err, I don't really want to explain this too much but... Rem tends to hallucinate a lot which is to be expected of one who never sleeps. Rem cannot sleep so in turn he cannot dream, and he wonders if dreams are anything like reality or if reality is just a dream. EDIT: Since I was kind of vague and it may not be obvious, various things were drawn in "reverse", like the upside-down crosses. He is also in moonlight, but the color outside is reversed to red to make it appear as sunrise. Hopefully that makes more sense TvT ;___; Gah, I hate talking about Rem because he's such a sad character...I love him so much, but unlike many of my other characters I can identify with him on a very personal level, but not in a happy sense. ;___;
....also lol, speaking in canon terms, Rem doesn't get anywhere near beds, but I thought it was more symbolic that way haha. and nakedness because vulnerability. ;__;
OH ALSO BURNING RETINAS AGAIN. Derp.
Oh yeah, really the song reference doesn't have anything to do with anything. At least, not in the sense the song was intended anyways haha xD But the reference does have to do with the story, so there you go.

Absolutely beautiful. Really, thats how I can describe your artwork. Beautiful, Gorgeous, just flat out amazing. I hope one day I can refine my style to the way I want it to look and be amazing like you. Also the nakedness..yeees. Vulnerabilty levels rising xD that last sentence. "Oh the nakedness yeees." didntcomeoutrightimsorry. My subconcious is a little pervert ohohoho. xD But seriously, the effect of nakedness in this picture really adds to it. No matter how I phrase this itturnsoutwrongohwell. Sorry. xD
Just, TELL me how are you so good at drawing this beautiful art? You should be the biggest most famous artist ever! (The person that made "The Adventures of Tintin" are good but your art...Just you art is way, way way way Cooler, but....It needs to be atleast 20% cooler ^_^ Pff? /)
;//w//; Aww, thank you!~ ^v^ Yeah! Non-literal coloring is very expressive and fun~
TvT And yes, it does have a meaning. In part, it has to do with the story the character belongs too. On the other hand, it is also meant to reflect the theme of reverse and confusion in the drawing. I hope that makes sense~ ;w;
This inspired me to give playing with colour a go. [link] was the result.
Your art is seriously amazing. Almost every time I see a new deviation pop up from you I see something I've never tried before and get the urge to give it a go, even coloured pencils aren't something I usually play with.
Okay. You probably get this a lot, but I watch your YouTube videos and you are literally my biggest inspiration. Like, you don't even understand how much I've improved just because seeing your art inspires me and makes me realize that it IS possible for me to do well. I've been drawing since I was little but just started taking it seriously about 2 years ago and I've had a huge jump in improvement since seeing your videos. You also let me have the courage to try new things (since i starting watching your videos I've accumulated 206 prismas OTL)) and colored pencils aren't a threat to me anymore! XD Anyways... Just wanted to tell you how amazing you are ; w ;
;A; W-wat. Y-you are too sweet really!! asdfghjkl-
T//v//T Aww, b-but i'm so glad that I could help you that much! ;w; T-that is amazing...! I don't know how I manage to do that...;A; -shot- >w< Hehe, and Prismacolors are so addicting aren't they? I'm glad they aren't threatening to you anymore!
;//u//; B-but thank you so much again~ You are too kind, really!
Omigoodness, I think I will love REM. QAQ You see, after a trauma at age 11, I stopped sleeping, and stopped dreaming. I tried to sleep using every natural solution for about a year to a year and a half, and yes, I had some hallucinations as well, but learned what to ignore to act normally. . . Well, most of the time. XD I started taking medicine to sleep, which made me feel physically better, but I hated the idea of dependency, and in Summers when it didn't matter, I'd take less or try to not take them at all... I missed dreams so much. The only one I could remember was a nightmare about Whinney The Poo. OTL'' (That was an awkward thing to make a poem about in my poetry class where we were supposed to make a poem about our dreams... that's the only dream I could remeber from my whole life!) After going through a lot of... change in my life and acceptance, I started to be able to sleep again at late age 17. ;w; Dreams are weird. They're not very vivid at all-- like blurry splotches of dim color, and barely last. Perhaps it's my body not knowing how to dream any more, having been put past REM sleep by medication for so long? But they've been getting better. I'm just happy to dream at all, even if it's a brief exerpt of nothing. I can't wait to have a real dream again! >//w//< It makes me feel more normal, and more whole, as silly as that might sound.
