Dusk is one of my favorite times of the day - the darkest moment of twilight,
during which the last of the sun drains away like the grains of sand in an hourglass spilling
the amount of sand yet to fall gradually dwindling like the water in an overturned canteen
SPLASHing out until there's all but a drop left.
Those precious seconds have passed, just like that.
An hourglass, unlike a canteen which must be refilled, can be inverted once the day has been spent and those same grains of sand will fall again,
but never in the exact same way they did before.
It's almost as if time has a life of its own.
If one inversion of an hourglass represented the day and the other the night,
then the dusk would represent those very moments when that hourglass is turned over,
transitioning from the day to the night.
It's that change that's
No two moments are alike.
And while it's quite impossible to capture the very essence of time, anyone can witness it in its purest form -
- just step outside and take a look around.
Omg beautiful, just wow! Great job ^-^
there's no point in being mad at yourself about it, or insulting yourself about it - this contest is really down to luck. you could get put with someone on the same skill level as you, or someone on a different skill level as you. also, in the contest journal it says -
"The member who wins a round based on creativity, effort, and how well it fits the Theme."
it says nothing about how good your art is! you tried your best, and it shows in your entry. you shouldn't be so hard on yourself about it. also, if you don't win, it's not the end of the world. there's a ton of other contests you can join around deviantART, and there's other ways to get points, too.
also another good thing the contest journal points out -
"Please sign up even if you don’t you won’t win the grand prize, participation is a great way to be more active in the group and make new friends."
again, it doesn't matter if you don't win! you might meet new people through this contest (or you might have already done so). even if you win or don't win, you can learn a lot from participating in this contest. so you shouldn't be so harsh on yourself!
one person is still a person, isn't it?
and wow, I didn't expect you to know how to read what a surprise
if you think they're at a higher skill level then work harder to be there with them. I know exactly how you feel (since rae is my friend and seeing her art makes me cry all over my laptop and make it break on a daily basis) but honestly, I'm trying my best to get to where I want to be with my art. if you're going to just look at people's art and be upset that you're not as good (which I did quite recently but realized that I shouldn't) then nothing good is going to happen.
I know this probably isn't going to help you, but I figured I would ramble a bunch anyway haha
