It was a yellowish underpainting with strokes of green made from ultramarine blue and cad yellow in the grass. The color palette is pretty basic, just cad yellow, cad red, ultramarine blue, black, white, and yellow umber I think.
Very creepy....considering these paitents actaully compare their ribs-to-sight ratio and cheer each other on when they "overcome" another diet-ahnialation (argh, so not spelled right)....
The imagery is very dead-on with the disorders themselves...very successful illustraion.
yeah sure. it wasnt an incrimination. just was amazed to see another picture of quiet the same impressed situation. and axactly the opposite of yours and the way around.
yours is more happy, much colour and bright ones andyou can see a girl. the other one digital art, a boy is sitting here and the colours are more darker...
just was surprised, like a déjavu or something... a little bit strange, you know?! -_-
but great works both and don't stop with doing arts!!
this series is amazing- i've worked alot with the disorders displayed, and have been through a few years living with chronic depression and OCD. you've displayed them utterly perfectly, did you research them? because it seems no one can understand the illnesses and draw them as you have without know anything about it
Hey thanks very much for the complement. I spent a few months researching. I was originally going to do 10 paintings, but after 5 I found it just wasn't in me. One of the reasons I wanted to do the series is to educate people about the illnesses, as there are a lot of misconceptions about them.
Brilliant! I saw a book recently that was titled "Real Women Eat". People have no clue what's healthy anymore. It seems as though the popular diets only screw with brain functions. I'd rather have fat smart people, than thin confused people. I have a lot to say on this subject, but I'll spare you. I like that you have the girl by herself. Most people in this situation end up with few friends, and those few are just as shallow and confused.
I think the problem is a bit deeper than that. I know women who have struggled with eating disorders that are definitely not shallow or confused people. I don't think anyone wants to be considered unattractive, and some women gradually become addicted to unhealthy dietary behavior that starts in little doses.
Its a wonderful painting with a beautiful message. The title says so much to me. Portraying these messages with child-like images is so appropriate. Its innocent yet very mature. I hope this makes sense. Your art just makes perfect sense to me.
Before I read about this piece I couldnt help to think back when I was a child
and I realy didnt have a concept of body weight. Children often are so full of
energy Iam allways amazed that gravity can even keep them tied to the earth.
Thats subjectivity for you thou. Hmm if the oranges are on sticks in the far off
what are the green things on sticks. Iam pretty sure the answer will be trees, butt then again I thought the oranges where tree's and the fall and the green
tree's where spruce's witch dont change color. Ah well later.
