Releasing Doubt by ParenthesisX Releasing Doubt by ParenthesisX
Sorry for the really long hiatus everyone. 
I have been extremely depressed since a lot of things really fell apart for me in 2013.  This is my 2nd deviation this whole year. I have been completely unraveled and am trying to pick up the pieces of my life. Trying to motivate myself to care again. 
I really want to succeed in photography but lately it has felt like such a far off dream not to mention a lonely one. 
I want to make a change in 2014 and really push myself to get on with it. 
Thats what those balloons are. Letting go of all of my doubt.

Great shot. The model is beautiful and perfectly posed, and the timing of the balloons is perfect (or is it two shots?). And the light and post work gives it an unusual feel.

Don't ever give up! I spent most of a year depressed and crying and not giving a shit anymore but now I'm going strong and having fun! Chase your dreams, believe, and keep your chin up! When you get knocked down, take a deep breath, brace yourself, and jump back up!~
Always love yourself, your beliefs, and your dreams!~

I'm a guy, so I don't know how that stuff works...but how did you get the cat ears on your legs to be flat to the skin?:O_o:



I like the picture, you have talent, the only thing you can do is chase your dreams. If you don't you never know where you would have ended up or how things would have gone. You can't give up.:happybounce:

your thinking and your beliefs are reflected upon your environment.  If you believe you are on your way to succeed your actions will be affected by those thoughts that will transfer to the people around you.  Don't give in.  You are the only person who can help yourself.  You can control your feelings and emotions, but you must truly believe in that power within you.  good luck.  I wish you all the best.  

ps great deviation

I feel like drawing an anime version of it...
If I did so (currently lacking time...), would it be okay for you if I linked back to your original artwork? I'd show you the outcome as well of course.

Sometimes when I'm just grasping for a grip on myself, I forget to let go of the doubt. It's a pretty relatable concept for me.

I was thinking about your absence from dA just a day or two ago and had planned to note you.  I am so glad that you are back.  You have been missed.

Please do not give up on yourself or your art.  I have followed you for several years now, and your work always gives me something to think about.  Your followers care about you.  Continue to experiment, and you will find your passion again.  Maybe try a new outlet for your creativity...maybe writing about your experiences?

You are so talented!  If this latest submission is any indication of your ability to motivate yourself to care again, you will succeed!  You are still a beautiful young woman, and this is a terrific message!

What a magnificent return from your hiatus.
I have always admired your eye for composition
And your ability to keep the elements in your images
From becoming stagnant in one part of the photograph.
The muted colors also give the the image a wonderful somber look
And they make the red in the balloons, building and hair stand out.
This is wonderful work and I hope your year is better for you
And your work helps you further your pursuit of happiness.
