Daily Deviation

Given 2002-04-16
iaa-911 by jasinski is just part of the growing deviantART gallery from this amazing artist. This one really touched me and, judging by the favorites, touched you guys as well. September 11th will forever be etched in our memories, but this portrayal of the prevalent human spirit puts hope in my heart. (Selected by $matteo) ( Featured by matteo )

Mallychorn Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2004
Extremely beautiful. I love how subtle the colors of the flag are used. It makes it an even stronger piece that you didn't have to shout it out in the painting itself what it was suppose to represent.

Wow, I saw this in Spectrum 9 ages ago and it was instantly one of my favourite pics in that book and in general, its such a touching pic! I really like the expressive qualities of the marks you've made and the expression on her face, its so sad, it instantly drew me in! I love the use of colour or lack of (matter of opinion), the various hues of blue create such a beautiful mood and the red butterfly gives such a beautiful sense of hope! This pic has been very inspiring since I first saw it, I long to create something as touching as this pic, that could connect with the viewer on the level this has with me! Seriously you have no idea how much I love this and how much of an inspiration its been to me!

I plan to get a print as soon as possible! I can't believe I found this pic here.......its so strange.

Ok, I just have to tell you that this is the picture that brought me to Deviant Art. I first saw it in Spectrum 9 and fell in love with it. I scanned it and put it on my binder and a girl at my school recognized it and told me about Devi art. I have been looking for this picture ever since I got on here and I am soooooo glad I found it.
Finding out what you made it for makes this picture even more special. My Uncle dided In the 9-11 attacks so it is something that is close to home for me. Thank you so much for supporting the victims!!

I am not patriotic what-so-ever but I can't bring myself to not like this piece. The colors are wonderful, the butterfly seems untouchable, the birds are wonderful and silly but her eyes and the background are so beautifully sullen...

This is simply fantastic Clap

I know this comment is pretty damn late coming on, but I saw this on daprints and... wow. Thats all I can say in response to that.

If I had money, I would buy that print....
Nice diamond-shaped birds.
jrice Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2002
Definitely powerful.

Would this have been improved if the joints in her fingers weren't quite so dark?
