A very strong image. Normally the color white is used to make paintings softer or to tone down the dark colors, but you used white as the dominant color and made it look wild and overpowering, showing that it has a lot of strength in it and can be just as dangerous as black. The fact that her hair and tears are the same color only adds to that thought. Black may be a symbol of danger and fear, but white symbolizes emptyness, and that is just as threatening.

I hope you don't feel this way anymore, but I want to congratulate you on being able to make your emotions so clear with this painting. I wish you all my strength and support :hug:

I know how to paint pictures better with words than with actual tools and hands.

es ist schrecklich, wenn man sich leer fühlt. man spürt irgendwie auch, dass mna traurig ist/angst hat, doch spürt gar nichts, diese taubheit die schrecklicher ist als all die trauer/angst, die sie unterdrückt, man will einfach nur seinen schmerz rauslassen doch es klappt nicht....
es ist eine art seelisches koma, man wartet einfach nur darauf, dass man wieder erwacht....

"I'm empty. There is no REAL me. What you want me to be, I'll be it. Because I am only here to make you happy. So please smile, and stop thinking of a me beyond what makes you happy. He doesn't exist."

Suddenly, a change of color, but the same emotion is expressed through it... Wonderful!
You should try and be just a little more positive sometimes. Think about the bright side of things, just for 5 more minutes than you usually do. Just try it...

So true.

It kind of reminds me of when you're feeling well… empty, and you just keep telling everyone you're fine, and keep smiling like you are. Then it just completely destroys you.

Emptiness starts off as such a small feeling, but grows more and more everyday, It's like I can actually see the tears flowing in this picture.
Reply
:iconkapanihan:
kapanihan Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah.. sadly.. I wish I knew how to rid of it.
I was about to animate the flow of tears, but then I got lazy and decided to just use what I can do. Thank you!

If we knew how to get rid of it it wouldn't be a problem in the first place, But spending time with those you care about is a good way to start feeling whole, ^^

My love for others is diminishing because I'm so in conflict with myself.
I don't know how to keep a safe distance without being too clingy and fearing that I'll lose them.
Now I've only come to the point where all I can do is standby and watch sadly and not be able to open up anymore..

hyungshi Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2012
I battle with the same struggle everyday also, I don't know how to get close to others without becoming too attached and as a result I constantly second guess every single action I take, but I know how serious and dangerous the effects of bottling everything up are on a personal level so I try open up a bit more everyday, though it's extremely stressful and I have to keep convincing myself not to give up, we will make it through this, both of us, I believe in you.

This really made me cringe and have goosebumps and feel I really don't know what. But I could've almost started crying because of it. Thank you so much. That really helps a lot.. I hope you know you don't have to be that way around me, though that's just a saying in itself I guess.. but please try to be as open as possible. I think we would both benefit from it if we both go that far.

I'm glad it helps, I don't feel that way around you at all,I find it really easy to express things with you that I would struggle to do with others, I will definitely strive to be more open..one step at a time. (:
