[IL NOUS RESTE TOUTE UNE VIE POUR PLEURER]


I read and reconsidered all your comments/opinions and I'm really thankful for all . Today I created this one. The idea was born spontaneously, I  thought about feelings that never leave me: absurdity, gratuitousness, vacuity... My friend said good phrase once, that we are "generation whatever". I believe in drawing as my way of coping with my existence. Lately I extraordinarily give importance to representation of feelings in my artworks: passion/pitifulness /threat <...> This one is about weakness / illness, I leave the right to choose. Choose the position of evaluation.
I was thinking about comment of  Gaiihin, "From my opinion you should try curvier crosshatchings and as well all sort of textures." At this moment I'm focused on crosshatchings, but I agree that "we use only a very small quantity of all possible shapes which is innumerable." For Robert Adam Gilmour  I can say that there is mutation in time, so there's naturally born changes in expression, small or grand.  And about lightining as Human Mollusk  mentioned, I am exploring this subject, solving questions at the time, it is always in my head, always there is a decision I have to make: to be more decorative  or to make the illusion of space, give more sense of reality. At the moment I am satisfied with my personal visual balance, every line I draw is considered, but I can not predict the future, I'm also interesting in experimenting.

This is very good... The contrast is very strong. There are very few area of pure black colour, you could have more ; this way the gradations could be even more powerful. One some area the crosshatching is so dark that it becomes texture. What about the background?

This picture is very romantic. I would recommand you to read Charles Baudelaire, if you haven't.
