Done Using Corel painter X3 and Bamboo wacom tablet. No part in this piece have been photoshopped or manipulated using textures in any way. Fully drawn using a stylus.
This is a metaphorical piece to explain my artistic journey through the seasons.
Rain/Thunder: Chaos and uncertainty: I grew up in a world where Art was frowned, my family hated me for drawing and was dead against it, they wanted me to get into something in which the career made money. I wasn't allowed to draw under any circumstances and they made sure I chose any career but art.
Autumn and Winter: Loneliness, Depression and Low self confidence: Choosing the wrong career stream made me lose everything. I lost confidence in myself, lost support of everything and worse I stopped drawing. Drawing had always been an outlet for me to draw my feelings and it wasnt there anymore.
Summer: Support, Encouragement : When I started going for college, one of my friends gifted me a tablet and I discovered the joy of art again. I sat and learned how to draw on my own. Started with learning how to write letters using a tablet on MS paint. I let go of past restrictions and mistakes. I discovered a new the joy of drawing.
Spring: Hope: I started drawing and entering contests and showing the world my paintings. My friends supported me and helped me a lot. They showed me that to do something, all you need to do is believe in yourself!!
The thumbnails on the sides show the progress of my paintings. More than anything I hope it inspires all my fellow artists to believe in yourself and to never ever ever give up!!
