Its very hard, even if you know what you believe is true. Just the sheer opposition can bring so much doubt.

pointless doubt
Agnusss Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2012
I understand how you feel... Last night I wrote an entire essay out of desperation and lost hope... although, it ended on a rather happy note... Writing and drawing is my way of recovering faith... Pretty childish I guess...

Anyway, I hope you will never lose your faith...

So amazing... Not only the technical aspects, but the powerful message it carries. I'd be so glad if I had even a SMIDGEN of courage to proudly declare my faith in the middle of a crowd. :heart:

This is spectacular and beautiful. It's refreshing to see artwork that I can happen to see and feel able to relate to personally, along with the fact that it is a piece with such strong emotion portrayed by the artist.

Whether or not you're Christian, you have to admire the several messages that can be seen (idk if all of them are intentional, or if I'm just reading too far into things here, which I tend to do) in this picture:

As almost everyone on here has said, it's a wonderful representation of the bold enthusiasm for one's faith that makes a person stand in the middle of a crowd and not only declare it, but try to share it.

It's also a really nifty way of showing how many people are impassioned by their religious beliefs. Despite the increase in individual expression brought on by all of the communicational media broadcasted over the World Wide Web (i.e. YouTube, livejournal, WordPress, and even dA), most of the passion people display these days tends to be negative: Republicans bashing Democrats and vice versa; critics flaming members of one fandom or another; random displays of general prejudice and bigotry against all sorts of people. Although there is certainly a large amount of hostility against religious peoples these days, the religious peoples themselves always seem to find a great ecstasy in their beliefs, and a representation of a display of such positive passion is really refreshing and emotionally stirring.

The detail put into this work -- into the hair, eyes, clothes, accessories, even EYEBROWS of not just the religious woman, but all of the people around her -- is amazing. The background is crazy awesome: the intricate buildings, the food stand on the corner, and the overcast sky makes the picture feel more familiar, and draws me further into the picture. Every time I look at this image, I notice something that I hadn't seen before; I love pictures that make me do that!

Sorry for the long rant... This pic is amazing, though. In most people's dA galleries, the further back you go, the more improvement you can see has been made in their current work; in your dA, gallery, though, each page brings up at least one picture that takes my breath away, either in laughter or in awe.

You're right. Alot of people use passion in bashing things... not for the good of others.:(
lydario Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2010
Wow, that was an incredible comment, the likes of which I can only dream to receive.

i truly admire people on this site who put forth the time to share their reactions to something in a community that often times seems shallow and lacking in passion.

This is a really well carried out image. Mostly, I find rel. works over-saturated, but this is a very good display of faith, well executed and blunt.
