Between Reality and My World by Qinni Between Reality and My World by Qinni
you cannot run away from the pain, because the pain is needed to create. It is happiness, it is sadness, it is an imprisonment, and it is freedom. As an artist, and a living person, one cannot do without either worlds, and thus we, as artists, must carry both burdens, in this place where reality and our own worlds meet....

reuploading ID/painting....

Where did you find the quote that inspired you?? I'd like to repost it, but I'm not sure the author. Beautiful idea! Loving the blending of realities.
Qinni Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
oh, it's been a REALLY long time, but I read something like this in an english class back in 2007/08, and then I'm pretty sure this quote was written by me around that thing I read in class @_@;;~
LivingWorkInProgress Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2013  Student General Artist
Hey, that's even better if you wrote the quote yourself! :D Love it just the same.

Perfect. It just doesn't get much better.

I'm, well projecting in all honesty. I totally understand. The line between my reality and the reality I live in isn't entirely defined, if at all. I've got to say the way you portrayed the idea (as I'm reading it) is brilliant. The graduation from the sky above and the brick below is well paced (if you take my meaning) and right at the middle we see the subject's face. It's really quite powerful for me.

This made something just click in my head! I really explains what artists seem to go through each day... constantly dreaming and such :heart: Your art is very beautiful.
ophelein Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2010
red string? like the one that binds you to your true love? was that symbolism intentional? also you draw beautiful things. <3
AninhaT-T Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2010

HuronGirl Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2010

I loved the concept and the drawign is beautifull
midknightBLU Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2010
Wow this is just stunning!

Can you please tell me how you painted the brick wall? Is that a gradient? And you just added details on top?
Qinni Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
no gradient tool ^^; this was done in Painter, and there's a colour mixer tool in there that's very useful, and that's how the gradient was created and details are added on top, yup~ and thanks ^^~

bia-k Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Simply gorgeous! This pic may be my favorite of your gallery, simply because of the theme. You show it beautifully but also, real. Thank you very much for delighting my day with this!

I love it, its got this early 1900's artistic feel to it with the subject matter, but with more traditional imagery.

very enjoyable

very good drawing and idea = )
Yuri-pad Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2009
I LOVE this illustration. I like the words that go with it, too. it's so interesting how you scroll down and discover that the blue sky was just painted on...and the details in everything are great.

I really want to say something, but...
Well, I'm an 16-year-old ordinary Chinese boy, and I can't say 'something' in English.

zJoriz Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2009
Beautiful paintwork! Lovely how the wall turns into sky.
I see you've been using this as an ID -- does that mean this is you?
Qinni Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
ah hahahaah...i wish it was me. lol. no, i'm not that pretty and i'm lazy, thus fat D: (not overweight, know...chubby D: ) lol~~ i guess it's how i sort of see a lot of artists.....i'm not quite as sophisticated as those people are because i haven't struggled in the real world yet, but....
zJoriz Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2009
not quite as sophisticated? Why?
Qinni Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
well, i just don't think i am ^^;~ the world is large and i still have much to experience....

veeeeeeeeery nice ^^
Ko-chan Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
I really like the composition of this piece. Your eye is drawn first to the balloon, and then drips down with the paint to the girl's eyes, then the street.

My only complaint might be that the bottom of the girl's dress seems too sheer. I don't like that you can see her legs through it. :/ Oh, well. Your choice, I guess. :shrug:
sesshys-grl Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2008  Hobbyist Artist
I really love the quote with this pucture. that background is really trippy :D love it
Meggieport Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2008  Student General Artist
I love how different this looks from most of the mainstream anime-ish art displayed today. You have done well in putting your own style into this.
