Aaaand doone ! :D
I have nothing much to say about this, I think the picture is self-explaining. This is about turning your sorrow into hope.

Stay positive !

Enjoy ~♥

I love the symbolism here, and your use of both greyscale and color.

I think this is a neat concept. I really like the choice of doing it grayscale and only using pops of color.

Nit picky, but it looks like you missed a few spots (outside your line art) during cleanup.

I like that you’re bringing in textured brushes. It would have been nice to maybe pull that into her clothing as well, to make it looks less silky/shiny.

Anatomy wise, try holding a paint brush in your own hand or shooting a ref pose. The way she’s holding it is a bit awkward, and the same goes for the palette.

Thank you very much !
Haha I know this looks a bit unclean at some spots but it's a pretty old piece and I think I'm more caring with my drawings nowadays :p
I'll keep in mind what you said about the textured brush, thanks ^^
About anatomy well it's still a struggle for me, especially the hands lol, but I'll keep doing my best till it gets good

Thank you very much :)

Really like the idea of this piece. Even if it is rather depressing, the way you conveyed the message is really creative.

This message is one of the best things about art, being drawing, singing, or another medium, art is the best at helping to vent and show your feelings without people thinking you're nuts (especially when it comes to depression and anxiety which I have experience in). I love the message you're sending of turning your sorrow into hope. It's very inspiring!

Omg I'm so sorry you have to go through that ;_____; I've personally beaten depression in the past but anxiety is still here, fxck it-
At least I am happy my art can inspire you, it means a lot to me, I've always wanted to inspire people :)
If you want to talk about what you're going through to me, feel free.. ! I know this sounds a bit indecent since it must be something super private, and we don't even know each other and stuff, but I like help & connect with people ^^

The contrast between the colors and greyscale, and the expression of the character are very beautiful :heart:

Wow thank you so much, I'm happy you like it ♥ That contrast was supposed to be a super important part of the drawing so I'm glad it worked out ! I also worked pretty hard on the character's face so I'm happy I could make her convey feelings somehow ^-^

Kudos for trying to tackle a difficult concept here with a lot of positivity. It's not the easiest thing in the world to get from sorrow to hope, and the rainbow tears are a really interesting and different take on that journey.

That said, there are some drawing fundamentals I'd highly recommend working on, in particular the anatomy. If you practice drawing from life more often (ideally a live model, but a mix of photographs and yourself will work if you don't have access) I think it'll help you convey more expression in her pose as to simply in her face. Right now, she comes across as very defeated - the way she's holding the brush is not the way people normally hold them, so this contributes to that impression. Since she's in the process of turning her sorrow into hope, I think it would be really powerful to show some of that transformation in her body as she's building the confidence to take that step towards hope.

Ah thank you, it always makes me happy to see that people are receptive to the message ♥

About anatomy, I am already practicing it (with both living models and photographs), so I guess I just have to keep going & be patient Bunny Emoji-68 (Bouncy) [V4]

I have to admit that while drawing the pose, I didn't keep in mind the fact that she was moving towards hope, maybe a more upright pose would have been better indeedLlama Emoji-07 (Hopeless or Scared) [V1]  I should really keep in mind the emotions of my characters while drawing them ^^

Thanks for the tips, that was very helpful ♥

I like idea behind this picture. The best thing is is usage of colour. Contrast between gray world and colourfull painting is amazing.
