Attention whore. by Endling Attention whore. by Endling
Finding ways to express yourself is difficult. Especially in art.

I've never been particularly good at it myself. I stick to stories, character designs and other elements of expression. They become direct results of when I'm feeling good. Feeling invigorated and feeling inspired. If I had it my way that'd always be the case.



But I've always envied people who could present themselves raw on a canvas. When you wake up some mornings and feel like life is giving you the finger.


And I feel pretty f---ed right now. I've never personally understood why your brain insists on perpetuating thoughts that you are perfectly aware are bad for you. Depress you. Haunt you and generally make your day a miserable one.


So here's to putting it to paper.


Hence the title.



EDIT 4/13/05: Seeing as how this was a would-be scrap turned my most popular work on DA, I figured I should probably go back and touch it up a little, try and get back the lights and darks that got lost in translation when I scanned it with the digital camera.. anyway. Pay no mind. :)

I love it. Great piece and title.
It's funny but I just happen to know the medical term for attention whore is called Histrionic Personality Disorder.
Further info below.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Histrion…
Histrionic personality disorder (HPD) is defined by the American Psychiatric Association as a personality disorder characterized by a pattern of excessive emotions and attention-seeking, including inappropriately seductive behavior and an excessive need for approval, usually beginning in early adulthood.

Great piece.

And about what you said, our mind is us, and I believe there are forces around us trying to bring us down and they know where to hit you. It happens to us all. I pray that your days become brighter, but keep up the great work.

You should draw more drawings like this one ; it's a shame you don't (or if you do, that you didn't post it here). This one is really awesome and coming to your gallery I hoped I would find more of the kind. But so disappointed ! Please, don't let that go ;)
