Burning endlessly by AquaSixio Burning endlessly by AquaSixio


There is a smell of burning in your life,
and now, every memory of him is a second in hell...
Then, your heart is ready to burst, consumed by a vibrant fire...
and you are trying to forget, burning all the pictures and poems down...

Look inside, once again a boy stole your heart. "

The heavyhearted serie : [link]

You art carries strong messages. Even though your world is burning and you feel like nothing can stop it, hold on to the butterfly, look at its colours and remember there are still good things in your life.

I could notice that you haven't painted tears in her eyes in spite of being lost in a torment. Don't we all go through such moment of anxieties and how we release our thoughts at every night burning ourselves! but thanks for adding that butterfly which sends a strong message to focus on the little hope we all need to during tough times :) I wrote few lines on the picture. I hope you'll like it :) 

I pull covers of anxiety
close to my little heart
and stare at violet smoke
dissipating over walls of innocence
where it crumbles between flames
of my shattered thoughts
and numbness soaking my face
before a butterfly of hope
fluttering for its life

Qita :)

There is something so reminiscent to my childhood in your artwork. I think I'm not the only one to feel this way. I feel like there's a story to be told in every one of your pieces. Your illustrations inspire me!

This picture is truly amazing, and it really inspired me. Could I use it as a base point in a novel that I'm writing? I'd give you credit for the character and the picture of course.

she's like Enna.but probably a totally different story. beautiful picture :)
Moonbeam-Lives-On Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2009
This is either a funny coincidence or you are stalking me.
Firstly, that's my first name.
Secondly, the girl in that picture looks like me, and is roughly the same age (you said 12-14 in your comments)
Thirdly, that's exactly how I feel
Fourhtly, You hit the nail on the head with the fire and the pain and depression, leaving and being left.
O_o either I'm going insane.... or.... God is trying to tell me something.
I was just looking through DA and look what I find. A picture of myself burning, the same name, almost same features, roughly same age, and in the description i find the same story.
AquaSixio Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Haaaa, quite odd indeed ! Now you've the choice to see a strong sign or just a strange coincidence.

I think if you were happy you wouldn't read the picture in the same point of view
Moonbeam-Lives-On Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2009
*nod nod*

Well I'm not exactly happy... but for the picture Olivia it's about a boy. For me it's never been about a boy. but i was left. And i did burn. I did my own fair share of leaving. Kinda strange.... The other thing is her hair is black and mine is the complete opposite. Blond. but she wears it similiar to mine.
Ha ha i was kinda creeped out at first, but i'm starting to see the symbolizim....

SilentHillGothLady13 Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
nicely done, very good! Excellent work! You know this girl in your drawing, Olivia is very cute and her expression is a good one, as if she feels alone in the world, noone to love her, not even her Mother maybe? This girl reminds me of Alessa from the game and movie series, "Silent Hill" Ever see it?
Did it inspire your character?

Beautiful fire and a deep meaning.

DUCKiFiED Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2008
I had a much different take on this. My first thought, by the title and by the look of the girl, was that this was a very young girl... no older than 9. Who might have died in a house fire; and now as a ghost, she burns endlessly for eternity. iono, just my interpretation.

Beautiful drawing :D :D you did great job with the fire and with the expresion on the girl's face :D :D Like also the overall coloring ... Well done :D :D
d-fly Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2008
I know this is not what you intended, but this image makes me think of sexual abuse. The young female huddling in her bed and the fire surrounding her, bound to consume her. Victims of sexual abuse often play with fire. There's something about the destructive cleansing of fire. It seems like the only thing that can clean away the dirt.
I hope you don't mind my interpretation.
