#104: Of ones creation is giving some of yourself into something else. To see it act, live, flourish, suffer, fail, or die is part of this process. To let it free to reach all it can; risking it to all it could face. From out of ones own hands to being on it's own; all that can be given for them is love and advice. And all that you can hold onto is a hope for their return...

I thought this could be interpreted in many ways: spiritual, parental, artistic, etc. I think it is up what one is willing to think or what one believes it could mean.

But besides that, I saw both of the versions of this work and to me they both feel to have a unique value to it: This one conveys your idea more definitely while the other is oddly more surreal. In all honesty Tato, the sketch variant reminded me of one of my own concepts (that is also my username). They are both beautiful pieces either way, and the girl in the background gives that overseeing yet ambiguity gives that aspect to one's creation. Of what one's creation shines brightly enough to represent its creator properly, yet unique enough to be something precious on it own.

superrr late but I wanted to respond to at least one of your comments! (I really, truly enjoy reading these omg) 

What I particularly like about this comment is the way that you see the two pieces, the sketch only and then this one, as different in meaning/conveyance. I really like that idea, and it's something I really enjoy when it happens with some of my daily sketches. How, slight changes and color can alter the meaning or conveyance of an idea or feeling but still being essentially the same thing at it's core. I think I want to do that more, though ofc I have time constraints, but it's something I want to be more mindful of when the opportunities arise. Thank you! And for the other comments ahh <3

Ah you are certainly welcome, I honestly just interpret what you create, you create such insightful pieces. And I really would love to see more pieces like this: duality pieces from the traditional sketch to the digitally finished work. However, you're right; it would soak up a lot of time to make a piece like that though. And I'll keep up the comments as long as you continue the incredible artworks!
