Hold Onto Innocence by kelogsloops Hold Onto Innocence by kelogsloops
acebook  | drawing process youtube 


I've been so excited to finally complete this drawing. Why? Because I've recorded my first speedpaint video documenting the drawing process in FOR-EVER!!! And that brings us here:

This painting comes with quite a significant meaning for my current time and point in life I suppose. It's a little cheesy, but i
t's the idea that as we grow up, there's that little bit inside of us, our innocence that kind of seemingly flutters away without us really noticing. It's the fact that the people around me; my friends, embark on this kind of transition that nobody really notices taking place -  they start to shoulder a different kind of responsibility.
It's nothing bad, it's just something that happens I guess.

They don't change to become a bad person or a heroic icon or anything, they just change, and that's okay. 


We grow up.

Thank you for imagining and sharing this with us.

The colors and illustration really helps communicate that 'sad-but-its-going-to-be-alright-you-just-keep-holding-on-to-yourself-and-the-things-you-care-about', comforting sort of feel.

Thanks for this.

Aw, please don't be sad! I can probably understand why it might be a bit sentimental though, in a way it is quite a sad thing to see and experience, but it can also mean new beginnings and something new to look forward to!

So true. I definitely feel like compared to the things I see now and the way I react to things, it's almost like there was this veil that's been lifted from my eyes.
People change, and I find that a bit sad yet beautiful at the same time.
Gosh, looks like I'm the cheesy sort, too. xD

(Amazing speedpaint, by the way! Very cool o:)
