Desperate times . REMIX by KelseyBeckett Desperate times . REMIX by KelseyBeckett
Let me start by saying I am VERY hesitant to post these pictures.
This collection took me months to complete; they're pretty much my babies, and I want to share them with you.
As for how long they'll be up, I'm not sure. I'm very nervous!

PLEASE do not copy/ steal my work. ;__; <33

All are done with Prismacolor colored pencils.

Lemme hear what you think they mean <33

Some of you may recognize this specific picture. I put the original in my scraps, this is an updated version. Boosted the color in photoshop to show what it really looks like : )

I love the waterline... Personally I find that perspective very difficult, you accomplish it well. And as always your color choice is a beauty to itself.

I do remember this one, and I love it even more now. It's just so damn REAL. And it's just crazy how you can do it all with colored pencils. You're amazing.

That hand... is... GOD-AWESOME. As is the expression. As are the small light reflections. As is the sense of floating. As is the - goodness, it's just all amazing. ^___^

but she is pretty..
people just need to notice!

. . .

I really like this series, and when I saw this picture, this lyric by the ramones came to mind:

"She's a little lost girl in her own little world
She looks so happy but she seems so sad
She talks to birds she talks to angels
she talks to trees she talks to bees
She don't talk to me
Talks to the rainbows and to the seas
she talks to the trees
She don't talk to me
Don't talk to me"

<3 please keep them up for as long as possible!!!

i'm unclear of the meaning of this one. the artistry is great though! it took me a while to realize that she is in a tub and partially submerged in water (but it's things like that which take a while to understand that i love in art!).

okay... this is all i was able to make out from this one... there is something she regrets. hence, she is submerging herself in water, trying to cleanse herself. but the regret is so great that cleansing is not enough, and she feels she must kill herself (i think that's blood going down the drain?).

the text is REALLY difficult to read, but from what i can read of it, i take it that her regret may concern a guy....

once again, colored paper?? what kind/brand of paper did you use in all of these? from my experience with prisma colored pencils is that it will not just work on any colored paper (.... like contruction paper...ew) or it will not blend as well.
