Dude!?  Why are you still here!?  GO!  GO NOW BEFORE IT'S TO LATE!!! :ohnoes:
On vacation with friends till Sunday. We're staying in a gorgeous 4 story cabin in the mountains :heart: but the WiFi sucks, so if you dont hear from me for a few days I'll see ya all when I get back! ^^
A World of My Own
This was done as part of a challenge on the Wonderland Amino ^^  Everyone was assigned a different screenshot from Disney's Alice in Wonderland to redraw, and this is the one I got :heart:

Y'know, for someone who loves 'Alice' as much as me, I've noticed I don't really have a lot of actual 'Alice' and not just a ton of Invader ZIM parody/crossover art in my gallery :D  So I'm glad I was able to participate in this :)  

BTW--the style I used here was largely inspired by Japanese Illustrator/Manga Artist, Junko Mizuno :heart:  With her penchant for drawing crazy, FUBAR fairy tales I've always wished she would have done an 'Alice' manga :aww:  I don't know what's harder--doing really detailed shading with complex lighting and texture, or fighting against that urge and just sticking to flat colors and almost no shading :XD:  People who do minimalist art seriously have my respect ^u^

Alice in Wonderland created by Lewis Carroll
“Yours is the light by which my spirit's born: - you are my sun, my moon, and all my stars.” 
- E. E. Cummings

(Yes, yes, I know... she looks kinda like Blue Diamond XD)

For our final project in my Illustration Studio class we had to come up with a fantasy or sci-fi illustration (I think I sort of did both ^^), and this is what I came up with.  But this also happens to be a very personal piece... one I've been wanting to do ever since my aunt died several months ago.

After her passing, I wanted to create a piece I could dedicate to her, and I had this very image in my mind, but--and this might sound kinda silly--I was... afraid to attempt it.  I was browsing though the gallery of an amazing DA artist (sorry, won't say who) and marveling at all her work.  I thought, "My god, her work is so beautiful, and heartfelt, and and moving, and deep--so powerful.... how can I POSSIBLY put as much love and emotion into some dumb little work of mine?  I'm not good at anything but fanart -_-  Not to mention I hadn't yet attempted digital painting really, and felt it would be laughable for me to even try to paint something on par with her stuff.  I was deeply inspired by her work, but also--admittedly--a little intimidated.  I tried several times to just "go for it" and kept telling myself, "You'll never know how it will turn out unless you DO it first!"  But it ended up getting put on the back-burner each time.

Then I started trying digital painting for the first time about a month ago.  While I'm still a beginner and need vast improvement, I found it wasn't nearly as scary as I'd initially thought ^^  Soon after, this project for class came up, and I had NO idea what to do for it (no faeries or dragons, our teacher said--something more original!).  And then I remembered I'd wanted to do this piece for a while, and thought "What the hell," it would be a good excuse to give it a try.  

So I did it annnnndddddd... well, I don't know ^^;  I can only hope my aunt would have liked it :heart:

So what IS this picture about?  Well, I envisioned this translucent being (she can be anything you want--an alien, a goddess, whatever) who is like an empty vessel, wandering the universe, seeking to fill herself with something, although she doesn't know what.  All she knows is that she feels alone and incomplete.  After some time--billions of years perhaps--she comes across a breathtaking nebula filled with stars.  Seeing the millions of tiny, twinkling lights, she is overcome by their beauty.  As she gently reaches towards it and holds out her palm, the stars are drawn towards her.  They flow into her body, filling her with their light, sharing their warmth and brilliance with her.  However she knows she must eventually move on, leaving this beautiful star field behind.  She's sad she must leave, but knows that she'll always carry a piece of that shining light within her, forever.

Everyone I've ever met throughout my life, all the people I've talked to, laughed with, befriended.  Every experience I've had, every new thing I've learned, every time I've had a thought.  All the things I've ever loved--drawing, cartoons, books, cats, sushi.  Every feeling I've ever had, and above all, all the people who have ever come and gone in my life that I've loved and that have loved me... ALL these things are like those tiny fragments of light, and everyday they fill me more and more, making me who and what I am.  And until the day I die there will always be room for new light.  We humans are never truly "finished..." more like "works in progress" :D

My aunt may be gone, but the lights she left behind--the good times we had, the love and pain we shared, all the memories I have of her--are ones that I'll always carry inside me.  And that's true for all of us.  We give off our own light as well as take it in.  You are someone else's light.  You mean something to someone, even if it doesn't seem like it, even if your contribution seems small and insignificant...

Someone's life was different because you were in it. 

While I may not believe in a "Big Picture" or the supernatural, or anything beyond this life, I still believe that the people in our lives matter.  I feel so CRAZYINSANELY lucky to have the people in my life that I do, and to have known my aunt while she was here.  I'll always love her.  And now I'd like to end this with some lyrics from "For Good" from the Broadway musical Wicked (which my aunt paid for me to go see to celebrate my getting over a horrible, pronged, painful illness that I wasn't sure I would live through.  I can honestly say the day we went was the best of my life):  

I've heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don't know if I believe that's true
But I know I'm who I am today
Because I knew you...
Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good

It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you
You'll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend...
Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you

Because I knew you

I have been changed for good

A sincere 'thank you' everyone, for all the light you fill my heart with :*) :heart:

Curious Question, I know you love Alice in Wonderland, I do too. But how do you feel about Beauty and The Beast? I'm kinda obsess of it, almost as much as Hercules. :heart:
What are your thoughts Beauty and The Beast? Do you like Belle? Do you like The Beast? Do like the song "Tale as Old as Time"? Did you saw The Remake with Emma Watson? Do you like the story line?  

I'm sorry if I sound a bit crazy. ^^;
