dead inside by innsjo dead inside by innsjo
to show how i feel inside.
i used a lot of contrast and medium brightness and it created the perfect mood for how i feel, and for the background, it just turned out that way with the blinds that cover our sliding door.
but in all seriousness, this portrays a feeling of emptiness i have, being gay and not having come out yet. and the depression that comes with that. its a feeling that others could relate to. its a feeling of hoplessness and despair, confusion and anger, fear and self-hate. the black lines kind of represent that, and perhaps it could also represent my cutting, with the white side representing pure happiness, which i cant seem to achieve.

its really hard to paint this feeling, so i just decided to take a picture with dramatic effects.

now, this isnt a complaint or anything. its just how it is, just how i feel. so dont attack me with the thought that i'm just a whining teenager. depression and cutting is real.. and scary. i dont encourage this behaviour, im trying to get out of it. and art is self-expression, so here i just want to express this feeling.

Wow, this is such a cool picture, especially when you think about it in the context that you've put it in. I love the contrast in it, the sheer brightness in the white and the opposition of the black look pretty cool together!

thanks. haha high contrast is like my favourite thing, with a lot of white space too. its stream-lined and cold feeling.

I think when people do high contrast right it looks pretty cool, otherwise it just annoys me, like when they only half do it so it just looks washed out and crappy.
