It's alright to cry, Little King by crying-king-art It's alright to cry, Little King by crying-king-art
To shed tears is considered a form of weakness to many. But isn’t to hide them a sign that we accept it as a hindrance? Even kings cry, no matter how big or small. To accept our vulnerabilities as a part of ourselves is, in itself, a brave thing.

I created this for my art teacher's exhibition. It was so time consuming! ^_^; But I'm happy to finally have it finished!

Sorry, I haven't been on Deviant Art that much. I've just lost a bit of the desire to post things, haha! I'll hopefully be uploading more stuff soon :3

I had to use a reference, lol. I hate drawing animals because I'm so bad at them and I don't do it nearly as often as I should :P It has that texture because I overlayed my sketch on top of it hehe. I love crying faces too! ><

Very inspired my friend. Anytime you find a strength in emotionand channel it into your art you will always find success and appreciation from those unable to do so

Thanks! Although I love just making simple illustrations, there are certain issues or problems that I like to express through art. Like this piece.
I found that as a boy, I was pressured to do certain things like to get good grades, get a pretty girlfriend etc. It felt like having a crown forced onto me. Almost like they wanted me to be great and lead. I found that because I was trying to live up to everybody's expectation, that there wasn't anyone I could cry to because I had to be strong. That was my inspiration for this piece ^_^

So true ^_^ Someone once told me that when I remade a picture, that it lost the creativity that was in the old piece. But I told them that it wasn't that I didn't like the old piece. Because the things we make when we're younger get harder to naturally recreate once we've gained a bit more skill. These flaws are just documentations of how much we've grown as an artist :3

What are you saying? If you enjoy doing it and it helps you express yourself, then it's art. Art is about context not skill and you are very much so an artist :)

Hehe tnx ^^ I like to consider myself as one now, but when I started drawing I didnt have the skills or the patience to realy express myself, thats the point :)
I didnt have any message, or pride in my stuff, but I was aiming to get there!

Mabe its dumb to think like that, but I feel when someone just blobbs something together in a minute or two with no skills, and no work behind and then goes "voila! Art!". I feel a little cheated on since I'v put up so much effort in trying to improve myself, and it rly has taken me a while to have the confidence to say my stuff is Art.

Haha, you're telling me. I just hope that someday, all people will recognize anime and manga style as art and not just kiddy drawings :\
Now that I've had a better look of your gallery, I can certainly see the progress. Pretty interested in seeing you go further :3
