Rise Above (Drawing) by Retrubutionist777 Rise Above (Drawing) by Retrubutionist777
Don't be afraid to show your scars, because you can rise above them.


Okay, after six hours, listening to Rammstein for inspiration, four cups of coffee, and a lot of work, here is the finished product! I'm not satisfied with a good amount of it..... So please pardon its roughness, this is my fourth drawing ever, there's a lot to improve. I'd appreciate comments. I used a 4B pencil and a tortillion, that's it. Also I didn't use a graph. Oh, here's a link for the song I wrote that goes by the same title: [link]

I don't the the scars look quite the way they should, but right now I'm not sure how to make them look....real. I'll probably do this drawing again someday so it can be perfect.

Ah, Rammstein. Rammstein is good for meditating on scars. They're a very sadomasochistic band, you know. I especially like their adaptation of Haifisch. And the song Dalai Lama. I suppose some of their songs do inspire a certain sense of angry rebellion, yes.

Anyway. As for your drawing. I like this. It captures wound and werewithal, both of which happen to be of utmost importance. One cannot rise above unless there is something above which to rise. Don't worry about the roughness. The subject matter is rough - why ought the drawing fail to reflect this? It works to your advantage, I think. And because I'm tired, and my coffee has long since worn off, I'm beginning to rant like the 24yr old geezer I am. Again, I do like this very much. Very provocative. Now. Good evening, night, morning, whatever.

Gott mit dir,

You like Rammstein? Yay! I do as well, especially because there's a lot of German in my ancestry. They are, although I do try to avoid any overtly sexual songs. And I really like Dalai Lama too! For me their songs inspire a fierce warrior like emotion.

You're very right! You can't rise above something unless there's something to rise above. And really? I'm surprised and happy that the roughness adds to the drawing, and doesn't distract away from the subject it's portraying. But now that you say it that way I can see what you mean.

:D And an absence of coffee is quite a dilemma. Also I think you're not ranting like a geezer, more of speaking like an art connoisseur.

Gott sei mit dir, wie gut! Und möge der Herr segne und behüte dich.

I love Rammstein. They were my first exposure to the German language! That was in early High School, my love of German culture has stayed with me since.

*giggles* That's my favorite glomp emoticon, and it was a good excuse to use it.

This is random, but how do you use emoticons and stuff?
I've been on dA forever with another acct, this is my new one, and I've never figured it out.
I feel stupid.
