Cure my own BrokenHeart by glittersniffer Cure my own BrokenHeart by glittersniffer
This is a little something I put together between a few commissions I’ve had up and running. It to me –is extremely rusty- there are a lot of careless judgments in this image I wouldn’t normally make…
*the text is supposed to be wonky and rustic*
But the design could have been a-little better…
I have been a tad rusty I think…lazy on the coloring *hence the reason this image has taken a long time to finish*
But it’s a fun piece really…

I was watching a tv show *I think it was sex in the city* and I heard –to cure a disease you must first know what the disease is- how can you cure a disease when you are unclear of what the disease is? How can you go on while the disease eats away at your heart without trying to fix the pain?
When it comes to a broken heart the only way to cure the pain of its breaking is to see JUST what that disease is ... what is making your heart so ill?
Is it ourselves that are breaking our own hearts? Or is it something else
Something we have no power over…
The cause of my broken heart …

I know the disease

The disease…………………. is you.

There comes a time when you got to stop the hurting…before it takes over and destroys you. We have all felt the pain of a broken heart…
And although we tell ourselves everyone has been through it or will feel it one day, don’t let it consume you!
I used such bold and bright colours and cutesy imagery because it all relates to how I feel and the message I wish to bring. The bright colours are part of that step –not allowing the darkness of a broken heart to consume me-
Her sweet shoes and dress are what I wear to make me happy :)
I wear the shoes that make me feel sexy
The dresses that shape my curves
I am wittle zombie girl!

Stitched back together of the holes you left here!
Floppy like a rag doll, broken…shatter
She wipes her last trembling tear away from her blue, blue eyes
Swears to herself it shall be the last tear she will shed, for you
Her stash of new medicine
Learning one more lesson
With a heart pumped full of fresh medication
She can fix its burning
Broken shall be mended
Bruises and scaring……………faded
Ashamed of what she put herself through, for you.
For you!

All she ever wanted..
Was you.

And these words hunny,
Are true.

Enjoy pebbles…
I am still candy eyed from the colours of this image! It’s making me blind,
Watercolor pencils –no added water-
All imagery done by hand!
Original 42cm high and 29 cm wide

-Sorry about the watermarks –computer added-
If you want the clear version, buy it!
Do not steal.
Thank you.

Your style is great :clap:
Yes, sometimes we are too blind to find out what is the real reason of our suffering...

i like how its a bit sketchy in places, it gives it the feeling of raw emotion.
battie Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2006   General Artist
this wins and rocks my butt off. i love everything about it.

as for the feeling, well. few things cause more ow (and shatter a person so damn easily) than a broken heart.
angel007 Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i love the style of the picture but i'm not sure about the green was the right colour for the skin. it's like shes jealous, jealous about no being in love.
glittersniffer Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2006  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
maybe she is...
she is a zombie girl tho...
see the stitches... maybe if you think about that it might seem more...fitting?
but i guess she is jealous about not being in love... sad about not being loved and happy knowing better is to come... with a dash of sorrow on her soul.

bamsbabe911 Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2006  Student General Artist

glittersniffer Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2006  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

infact im thinking of getting it printed on the back of a work shirt or something?!?!
that could be good in my store :)
bamsbabe911 Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2006  Student General Artist
yes it could be awesome :D
racheldawn Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2006
Very cool image, I love the meaning behind it and how you've explained it. I also like the reason you used bright colours and the shoes etc. Its really relevant to me at the moment because of something I've been through recently and you're view makes sence.

I love how you combine black fineliner with colour, it really works. Its something I havent mastered yet but have fun trying, I must do more. :) You have inspired me.

I cannot spot any of your 'errors', I know you have good skill and probably judge your work far more critically than I would, but I think it looks fantastic.

In short - great work! :D
glittersniffer Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2006  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
oh thankyou so much!
its great to read a comment like yours :) this work is more -tattoo style- than alot of my past works...getting into the habit of doing some tattoo design like things :)
thankyou so much again...and good luck with your own artwork!!

emmilee Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2006
I love it.
you can really connect with your message.
I think everybody feels that sometimes,
that they wish they could cure themselves.
I really adore your work.
you know how to make the facial expressions so
full of feelings that you actually feel the picture.

shadowed-angel Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2006
This is really inspirational for me. As I'm still heartbroken over a failed relationship that ended 7 months ago (first boyfriend, fiancé and that whole naive thing of believing when he said he wouldn't leave me :roll:)

But I'll nip the rambling in the bud and say that this is a fantastic piece. I wouldn't even think that you were rusty ♥
glittersniffer Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2006  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
aww :(
yes its been around 4 months for me...
and im still wanting him back...
even though he is acting like a complete whore now!

thankyou for your comment doll
shadowed-angel Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2006
:roll: Gotta love that. It's okay for a guy to be a man whore but if a woman does it.... :shakefist:
And they wonder why we get so bitter ;)
