Paint yourself the colors YOU want by Yuuza Paint yourself the colors YOU want by Yuuza

:bulletblue:FAQ:bulletblue:TUMBLR:bulletblue:FACEBOOK:bulletblue:


Hello everyone, how have you been?
Sorry for the lack of updates and art, i've been super busy :iconcryforeverplz:
I have not forgotten the people i owe art to either, sorry for stretching your patience T^T

So about this drawing, this is a more serious version of rainbow girl, it's about people trying to put us down, kill our dreams,
as artists we get this A LOT unfortunately D:
actually, anyone who's ever had a dream probably got a few dream killers telling them they'll never succeed or trying to impose their own standards and wished upon them.
But most of the time, trust me, You know what's best for yourself, and you have to trust your gut :)

Anyway, i hope you like it~~~~~~~~ :la:

Painting the world by YuuzaBirth of an Artist by Yuuza FOR MORE, WATCH ME :iconyuuza::iconyuuza::iconyuuza::iconyuuza::iconyuuza:


:new:THANK YOU SO MUCH :icongwendolyn12: for the DD, this makes me so happy :icontearyguyplz: especially because this drawing holds special meaning to me because i've had close family members telling me i won't succeed in art and several other things i told them i plan to do in the future and in the end i did succeed so THERE! haha
And looking back to those memories now i realized i could have listened, or give up my dreams but i didn't and i'm happy now that i have accomplished part of the things i said i would do (and the rest are on their way).
So anyway, i'm glad this particular drawing was awarded this special deviantART feature :love::new:
:iconrougekohl: made a lovely poem inspired from this drawing
I will paint myself the colors that I want.I will paint myself the colors that I want.
I will wear the masks I choose to wear.
I will sing these songs with words of my own making.
I will dance these dances with my own steps. In my own time.
I will paint myself the colors that I want.
I will wear the lies I choose to wear.
I will think my own thoughts.
Choose my own mistakes.
Choose my own triumphs.
Choose my own desires.
I will dream my own dreams.
I will bleed when I want to. Cry when I want to.
I will let creation hear my laughter. When I choose to.
I will. At my own choosing.

=Yuuza brings an encouraging, uplifting message in Paint yourself the colors YOU want with fantastic colors, powerful composition and an outstanding style. ( Featured by Gwendolyn12 )
:iconhugthedragons:
Vision: The idea is glorious and beautifully executed. All those hateful hands trying to reach out to her and pull her into a gray oblivion create a starkly beautiful contrast against her rainbow of individuality.

Originality: She is truly painted the colors she wants to be! I have never seen anything like it. It is surprising and yet utterly satisfying.

Technique: Very skillfully drawn - that shading is spot on. However, the white outline is at times jarring. I think a soft glow would have been a more aesthetic option if you needed something to differentiate the model from the background.

Impact: Impact in itself resonates from this masterpiece. She is sad yet determined, and rebels against the conformists and their bland grey brushes. It shows how most of the time, individuality is something you have to fight to keep, not something that others just magically have to accept. The reality and the beauty of this is stunning.

Wow. I'm out of ways to praise this.

:icondogedogerevolution:
Vision: The first thing I noticed was the colour, and I will salute you for that. I just love the sheer amount of vibrant colours in the palette, and it really is beautiful to look at. Like a kaleidescope. Truly 5/5. I am... speechless.

Originality: I'll have to admit that the whole 'Colour Your Own World' concept has been frequently taken. However, I did like the whole painting *yourself* idea. It brought a spark of uniqueness into it.

Technique: I'm a sucker for painterly strokes. I'm fond of the alternation between soft painterly strokes, and the sharper strokes for the finer details. There's also the fine details applied to the work. The palette was well-chosen, showing the contrast between the girl and the others. It is well-drawn, and the anatomy is correct. And getting that right isn't easy.

Impact: I'll be honest, it didn't really give a full-blown impact, in my opinion, but it *does* send a meaningful message; despite the fact that people are trying to turn you into monochrome, you should paint yourself with your own colours. What really striked me was the tears falling out of her eyes. Why is she crying? Is she... painting with her tears? Her tears left a lasting effect.

All in all, kudos to you! This is a truly fine composition.
