Repression by LindseyWArt Repression by LindseyWArt
DRAWING IS AVAILABLE FOR SALE!!!


Another project from Intermediate Figure Drawing depicting human expression, ironically I chose repression.

This was more of a personal project rather than a assignment reflecting events in my childhood and adolescence, and it was a lot of fun to do. Odd, I know, something so personal and almost painful and I enjoyed bringing it to life, but then I just love weird, creepy ass, crap. Ha ha. :lol:

References came from several photos of myself, so yes, this is almost another self portrait.

Anyways, I hope you all enjoy. :D

Hey Aichobitz, I would prefer if you didn't since this was a pretty personal piece and I don't want it taken out of context or used to promote somebody else's work unpaid. I really do appreciate you asking for permission, however, it was very nice of you to ask. :)

Thanks.

Remarkable work! Your design is simply amazing. I like the sensation of tension that is produced from the two hands squashing everything in from both sides. And at the same time up on top acting like a pressure release valve you have that protruding, partial face escaping with a scream. There is a lot of energy in this image. Good job!

You know, I can relate to what you said here quite a lot. I had to take several Figure Drawing classes for my fine arts degree and the more I took the more bizarre the images became for the assignments (yet they were still humanoid enough that the instructor couldn't' grade me down). Later I realized I was liberating myself from not so great events from my past by means of laying down charcoal on paper. Well, I was getting kinda bored too... it was my fourth semester of Fig Draw. My instructor at the end kept getting on my case about deviating to far from straight up Figure Drawing but what could I do... my imagination was wandering.

Reminds me a lot of the illustrations in the book series "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark." How that was classified as children's books is beyond me, but I loved them as a kid.

In any case, your illustration's got a good, creepy, demented vibe to it. Very visceral with a good sense of realism.
