Emotional picture of "Isolation":how it feels to be so isolated,cut off,disconnected,and alone.Had "fun" doing it.Ok,I expressed myself, period.

I "fooled around more"and found out some things,the paint and combos of paint,ect.,can really do:hint:"Smear".

P.S.,I do want to make one comment;many Oekaki sites forcus on refinement, finish,and beauty.I just wanted everyone to know,you can paint and draw,and it can be as ugly as sin. It can also express the feeling of the painting,and be distorted, bloody,gooey, ect. It does not have to use paint as "prettiness."It depends on the feeling and idea you want to express;many things,and feelings,in life are not pretty

Nice, Dorothy!

And I too would like to say...I agree with you. In fact, we have had many such artists here that don't conform to tame and boring "prettiness" - one of our own mods, cretin, for example. :) More people off the top of my head would be spoonalshmee, senobdec, paultheodore. And yet we also have just as highly skilled artists who DO like the neat side of "pretty" - tarlinqua, irkyturkey, yumeji for example. And then there are those who dwell on both sides - mitsu, mika, bleau. Feel free to look up any of these names for some wonderful oekakis :)

I'd also like to say it is hard as HECK for me personally to deviate from "pretty" and i simply hate that about me! that's why i always end up doing things to pimp other people's art instead of my own XD

Lorelai,I used to be that way for years;art teachers said I did "pretty art." Nothing upsetting.I took some art therapy classes,and started drawing upsetting feelings, ect.,and that opened the door,and I could finally express myself better. Now it feels better to be able to get it out of your system,in art.
