uhh...Drawing made of words...first attempt
« on: 08 Feb 2007, 23:51 »

I did this during one of my classes the other day. Seniors probably think I'm another suicidal frosh but w/e (I'm not, of course)



I am a recovering cutter (4 days and counting w00t!!!). The drawing is made up of words (sad,lonely,angry,unloved,frustrated,etc.). It was my first time drawing something like this (the words and the screwed up-ness of the drawing) so I kinda fucked up part of the hands (no good at drawing hands...meh...). What do you guys think? I'll try to get some close ups, but my camera just died.

Reminds me of this poster i saw from Reservoir Dogs



Basically uses the script to create the poster.

Have seen people use poetry to the same effect and it can have a real good effect.

I think it's a great concept.

It might help to sketch out the hands in pencil, lightly, first; then put the words over it and erase the guidelines?

I'd love to see it if you decide to do it over.

Congrats on quitting, btw.

Try modelling your hands in the position you want them in, and really LOOK to see how they fit together.
You're on your way, it's pretty creative.

That is a really cool idea, in my opinion art, in any form, is a cure for all problems, if you can just learn to love one thing, you can escape another.

I'll have to make a scan of some stuff I did for the school yearbook a few years ago. For each grade I drew a picture using the student's names. The one that turned out best was a ladybug.

ampersandwitch, yeah, I just havea tihng where I absolutely cannot draw good hands. I would actually like to meet someone who can...I modelled my own hands, but as I did not have my blades (I threw them away) I couldn't remember how I held them...that sounded incredibly fucked up..but ok.

Lunchbox, you must scan! Those sound really cool.

Evilnickgreen, you need your own thread! Those are totally fucking awesome! I really like them!

Don't use a blade.  That temptation I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.  Use a little folded up paper or something.
People who complain about not being able to draw something just need to practice.  I couldn't draw mouths for the longest time, but I think I've gotten better.
I have to work on ears.
Man, I would love to see more scans of that, just to get the full meaning.
Hurry up!

temptations are bad, yes. I'll try to get a close up pic of the words that make up the drawing tomorrow. Right now the camera is..um..away...
