Capture by Cindiq Capture by Cindiq
For this piece:
As a very uncertain university student, this piece is rather personal to me. I have listed all of my dreams in there, but the light bulb never came on... I could not decide what I want to do with my life, and the next thing I knew, I've wasted almost 2 years of university without knowing what I want to do...

I know I am running out of time as I stay uncertain, and time is slowing corroding my life away. So I suppose, my goal, or my dream, is the ability to light that little light bulb in my head, and perhaps capture one of the goals within my uncertain mind ( and then just go for it!). (the chaotic arrangement of the words are my messy mind orz)

I know many of you will think I am been way to literal with this piece and my goal, but I wanted to forcibly show what I think. Some of you might not realize, just how hard it is to find something I want to do with my future. I have to think about it everyday, it's not a very pleasant thing orz. Not to mention the university want me to decide what I want to do soon. I already have a lot of people telling me they DON'T understand why I could not find something I want to do with my life after university orz....

Even as I am applying to design schools, I am questioning if that's the right thing to do. I love doing art, but science fulfill my curious mind.... but I can only chose one....
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

orz sorry for my pre-exam emo-ness
orz I just realize a lot of pieces entered are about dreams.... maybe I got the theme of this contest wrong.... O well, future aspiration is also a kind of dream.... right?

the person in the pic is me, this is only the second time I did a self-portrait XD, I know it kind of...don't look like me... I wanted to show my abstract mind, so the fonts and everything are in 2D style where as in real life, I drew myself and everything else more solid-like.

Edit: I know my hand looks abit weird, but don't know how to fix it yet...
Photoshop + SAI 50/50

Edit 2: misspelled engineer.... I spelled enginer
Edit 3: misspelled Architect..... I spelled Achitect lol
Edit 4: I should stop fixing it =/
I should this into a "find a wrong word" pic ;D.

I can't even begin to describe how much I love this!
The chaos shown in the words really reflect indecision, each idea so different, yet beautiful in it's own way...
I think most people can relate to this, because the future is so full of surprises, and choosing what to do is the hardest decision ever!!
