Sins by mishihime Sins by mishihime
This is a re-upload of a deviation I submitted in 2007, formally known as "Health Sins" (14x20 in)

The girl in the painting is contemplating her life, coming to the realization that many of the things she's done, without any thought or hesitation have led her down the path of self destruction. Broken spirited. Admitting the truth. Unable to live in ignorance any longer.
I was lucky enough to display this at the art and music show sponsored by my college. It was created using gouache paint, cut paper, ball point pen, colored pencil and a splatter technique with a toothbrush. If anyone is interested, I still have the original painting and am willing to part with it for a price.

I love the colours you have used, and the addition of the paper works really well in adding an interesting texture and pattern to the painting. Great work. :heart:

To tell the truth, I am not sure why I like this so much, but when I look at it, I don't know... I get kind of chillie. While the motive on its own isn't too new, together with the colour, it gets so much meaning... And the title! I love it and it suits the picture so well even though I am not able to eally describe what I feel looking at this. It is kind of depressig, but more in a guilty way than a sad, can you understand me? If yes please explain me what I mean, because I don't understand it myself completly.

I think the biggest words that come to mind for me is "regret" "remorse".
This painting is one of the actual pieces of artwork I created in the worst time of my life when everything was a living hell, so there's a lot of genuine sadness and depression behind it. You might be empathetic and sensing that...Maybe...

O thank you for the answer. Now I know where this guilty feeling came from. Hehe, I don't know if I am empathetic, or what the word means.
I am just convinced that you can always see what the artist was feeling upon creating any piece of art, and what kind of a person he had been at this day. And I think, thanks to my own expierence, that true artists that make their art from heart, are all more vulnerable by sadness, sorrow, depression, loneliness and such than normal human beings. We have a different soul.
There are people in this world who don't care for emotion, they just live their lives being happy at all things they like and hate things that could show them how the world really is, and how people really are.

Those people could never be artists, not true ones.

I almost thought the little pieces of paper on the right side was pieces of mirror. It gives off a really interesting look! I've always wanted to try gouache and this makes me want to try it more! I really like the color palette on this :) :+favlove:

Gouache is wonderful. It's like watercolor but slightly more solid, less opaque. Try to get a cheap set with small tubes. I absolutely recommend it. You don't need much paint and you can reuse the same palettes without fear of it drying because like watercolors you can easily rehydrate it again. I work mostly digitally now, but should I ever feel the need to paint by hand again, you can bet it will still be gouache. Amazing medium. Good luck with your art and thanks for you comment.

It's quite nice.
You forget to say the dimensions of the painting.
I'm surprised by this technique:
"It was created using gouache paint, cut paper, ink and a splatter technique with a toothbrush."


:sarcasm:

Is it????

:iconmishihime:
mishihime Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, it is really created with those materials!
I did forget to mention that there is some minor blue ball point pen work and a little Prismacolor colored pencil line work as well. This is truly a work of mixed media.

I honestly forget the dimensions, although it's a nice size.
I will have to measure it and post them soon.

Thank you for commenting!

Gorgeous piece. Can I ask why you reuploaded? Has anything been changed? :)
Reply
:iconmishihime:
mishihime Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Nothing has changed. There is some new minor Photoshop touch ups and a new watermark.

The original deviation was uploaded as a very small image file. I also made a very poor decision to use the DA watermarking system, which is very large, ugly looking and contained my old username ~mishi-unloved. I recently found the large original scan that I thought was lost. (Eventually, I will most likely rescan the entire image in a higher dpi and see if I can get more detail from it.) I could have easily edited the deviation and reuploaded the new file, but I decided this painting needed another chance at life and so I decided to make a whole new submission.

Thank you for commenting and I hope you are doing well!

She looks very angry, sad and broken. Well done that you managed to convey so much emotions in the picture.

Not a fan of anime, eh? : )

Well, since it's been 5 years and my realism skills have improved, I think I will try to carry on this style in another piece in the future. I am confident I can convey this much raw emotion digitally and get the traditional look.

Thank you for your comment. I am inspired to do more!

Not anime per say, it's the graphic constraints inherent with the discipline that I find problematic.
Very few manga artists IMHO succeed in transcending it.

I salute versatility and appreciate that you spend time to hone different sets of skills don't get me wrong - but when I see the talent contained in this soulful piece... I can't help it, I wish to see more of it. There's something almost cathartic in your work.

Anyway, keep at it. :)
