They See Every Mistake by KatePowellArt They See Every Mistake by KatePowellArt
I finally finished this piece! I ended up using fewer eyes than I planned to because I felt it was going to look too cluttered in the end. I’m not really happy with how this turned out because it looks nothing like how I imagined it in my head, but then I decided I don’t care about making ‘pretty’ art just now. I’m trying to show how I feel self conscious about just being around groups of people; they see every tiny awkward thing I do wrong, they’re looking because I’m stupid or disgusting, how I feel constantly nervous and embarrassed almost every day. I’m not happy with this piece but I just wanted to create it to justify how I feel

Black acrylic, white charcoal, coloured pencils on white bristol board on grey/green board. HB pencil for the eyes

This is awesome, very good concept.

In uni I developed an obsession of drawings eyes and eyeballs. I would love a whole wall of just eyes.

I really like this piece. Her emotions and facial expression is beautiful. I think for the eyes, though beautiful, they seem detached from her. This is a great idea, but I think you should have had the all or most of the eyes staring at her and only at her. I would have loved to see that.  I hope you don't mind criticism.... Ashamed I still really like this piece though

This must be a huge drawing! Even though it didn't turn out how you pictured, it looks amazing. Your shading is amazing!

Also, btw, I dont know if anyone else has bothered to point this out, but you're really pretty.

Of course I've only seen two pictures of you, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say cute in a kind of retro way. With nice eyes, which is good because with the lips thats the first thing people look at to establish how attractive you are.

Anyhow, most people are self-concious, particularly in groups. Its why their personalities vary depending on who and how many people are around.

Theres an art idea in there somewhere.

Its good fuel for art I guess, but try not to let it bother you. You can drive yourself nuts trying to figure out what goes on in other peoples heads, and you'll never actually know for certain anyway.

Also, before I finish lecturing for today, if people are willing you to fuck up somehow, that normally indicates jealousy. Thats a compliment in itself.

Anyway, hope it gets better.

The idea is more important than the vision: when it comes to producing something you have to work through physical/visual problems with the chosen media. The initial idea rarely takes account of this.

I dont think many artists ever produce something that looks exactly the way they envisioned it.

If the initial idea is carried out well enough then the artwork becomes successful in all sorts of ways.

lots of wonderful meaning and very relatable! I think all of us feel this way at times! I know I do, especially when it comes to my art- my problem isn't embarrassment so much as it is me comparing myself to others. Even I know I'm not being fair, but I can't help it! Great piece!

I totally get what you mean about it not turning out the way you saw it in your head, but from my perspective (not being the one who made this) it's still awesome. It really does convey the feeling and I can really identify with you.

I think my favorite part is the faint scribbling of words.

The expression is perfect; beautiful. So helpless and stressed and sad... as if she's thinking.

I love this. Beautiful work.
