This Will Pass by aprelll This Will Pass by aprelll
Went for a different colour scheme, using a blood red in the hourglass to represent pain that I've gone through in my short life (both physical and mentally, particularly my spinal surgeries as a young child, and battling 6 years of self harm). Before, I didn't see myself as having a future or escaping depression, but at nearly 20 years of age I've finally found ambition and hope.

I really like this. I've had a problem with depression and self injury myself, I try and get tattoos in place of self harm and haven't done it in a few years! I think somewhere down the road I would like to use this idea for a tattoo IF that would be ok with you? Stay strong, and thank you for sharing your work and story!

As I said before, I love the designe.
I´m not sure.. but would you mind if I "use" it?
I mean finally I´m ready to get a tattoo and I want the hourglass from your designe with some changes. :blushes:

amazing

But before I read your Comment, I interpreted it in a different way.
The red color in the hourglass looks like a abstract heart.
So -> Love will pass

The first thing I though when I saw this was "thats gonna make one hell of a tatoo."
And one you should be proud of wearing. It really captures the pain in life and also the love.
Though if you don't mind, Id suggest you to make a iteration with some rose thorns maybe incorporated as a part of the wood the makes the hour glass.
Just my two cents, i know you didn't specifically request critique on your artwork so take it as an idea.

Anyway I foresee you are future filled with creativity :)

Love it, beautiful colouring and shading. What sort of pencil cyayons/watercolours did you use if you dont mind me asking?

aprelll Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2009
I use a watercolour palette, for a base, and then use Derwent Artist's pencil crayons to add a little more depth :)

Thank you! :) xxx

The way you have shaped the sand inside the glass, I really like, it reminds me of a body (both parts of the glass combined) which I think adds to your overall meaning.
I really like this.
