for all my regrets restrict me by Sangcoon for all my regrets restrict me by Sangcoon
edit: thanks for the dd! 

i thought i might take the time to explain the idea since some people werent too clear on it. i dont like to explain many of my ideas since i prefer people to interpret it themselves but ill give everyone the general idea of it.

overall i tried to make it a piece which is both light and pretty, yet ominous and 
ambiguous which, id like to think, is something i do a lot in a number of my pieces. 

balloons are something everyone knows to be light, floating objects, yet here the pull and tug on the girl, and the girl pulls and tugs back trying to move forward. certain actions, words, events in your life may seem fleeting, momentary and unimportant but only later do you feel the wrath of their consequences. things you decide on that are so simple have a grave weight on you later on, and you regret it all. you arent able to move forward, may it be because of petty choices or more serious ones, and they cloud your vision. you dont want to let go of the past, you are afraid
 and you keep thinking about how things could have been different, all the things you wish you could have changed, and so they harm you. you find it hard to see, you find it hard to think and so you find it hard to move on. you need to learn to let go, and move forward in life.

-------------------------------------------------
I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish but alas.

Regret is state find myself in lot, especially as of late. All the decisions I’ve had to make. All the actions I decided on. All the words I said or didn’t say.

I don’t think I portrayed the feeling as well I wanted to in the original idea… but I hope you get the gist of it :( Excuse grammar problems coz I suck lol.

---
I wish I had made the most of the time I had while it still existed. How many times I wish I had said something... done something... but alas it is now too late and I hate myself for how I feel.
---
Perhaps I should have protested more. Perhaps I should have made more of an effort. But alas here I am wishing to turn back time.
--
I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish but alas I must move on.

Daily Deviation

for all my regrets restrict me by Sangcoon portrays in a striking way how thoughts and feelings regarding all the things we could've done differently in life may hold us back from looking into what the future has to offer instead. ( Suggested by Kida-neechan and Featured by Gwendolyn12 )

I do like this piece. For me it show all that life can be. It has an airy feel, yet can also seem ominous or strange.
I love all the colors and the fact that the eyes are hidden.

Wow.  Extraordinary.  And that I should stumble upon this piece now... likewise feeling regret....  The balloons are the various regrets, right?  It appears to be a little cheerful for the subject matter, but after a thought, it's an interesting contrast.  Well done.  All you say here is true ^__^

I didn't quite get it until I zoomed in and saw the strings cutting into her arm and neck. This is visually appealing and the idea is something I can definitely relate to. Congratulations on the DD!

Woah! Not only is this piece instantly captivating, but also it has a very meaningful and strong concept behind it!

I love the use of colours and lightness of the whole composition, it gives a good sense of "fleetingness".
The way you drew the balloons are SO GOOD they look really realistic *.*

I like how the face is shrouded with the clouding as well as the arm, just like she is "clouded" with regret.
The blending of the skin is amazing! The folds and creases in the clothing are done really well!
You show a great sense of movement in her pose along with mystery in the half hidden face :)

Awesome work! Enjoy the rest of your day and the DD :D Congratz!

Ah, I've been feeling the same for the past few months. But in a much bigger perspective, the past is the past and cannot be changed, so why waste time there!

I love this. I've been feeling a lot of regret lately too, I should have done this, maybe that was a bad idea - and this portrays it perfectly. The cloud is muddling her vision, so that she can't just "look to the future" as people say to do, and "forget the past". She probably can't even look to the present, because she can' see anything but memories she wishes she could forget. The balloons, I'll admit I was a bit confused about these at first, because they didn't seem to fit, but then I thought, but they're probably dead weight. Heavier than normal balloons, or they feel like it. Then I noticed the strings slicing into her arms, and I don't know if this was the intent but it kind of makes me think that, perhaps the balloons didn't cause those wounds. Maybe she did. I don't know. At any rate, I really, really like this and I think you portrayed it extremely well. Excellent work and congratulations on the DD!

thank you for taking the time to look and write this! you pretty much get everything that im portraying haha. its like a tug o war between her and the balloons (which are ofc the regrets). the balloons are there pulling yet she is trying to move forward but cant do that because she wont let go, or untie, the regrets that are holding her back so all she feels is pain from it >.<
