I want share my thoughts on something that I have been thinking a lot about over the years.
It has to do with the image of the woman, inside every man ( Anima ) and the image of the man inside every woman ( Animus ).
In my own art, I feel that I have connected to this image through my character Madikken. In my own art processes, I get a chance to interact with this energy and feel whole inside.
It is difficult to explain this at times. Being an artist, I believe I get a front row seat to my inner world and archetypes. I believe that I get a chance to interact with my own psyche very clearly.
Its very interesting. I see a lot of artists here on DA that have their own characters and universes, that reflect their unique style.
Its often very sexual and I feel that I can relate to that energy. It makes me feel safe to share my own character, because I believe that you also know where it comes from.
I think this is why I like Deviant Art better than many of the newer sites.
I sometimes feel very out of place in the "professional" industrial business of concept art and design. This very tender process of channeling beauty has been packaged and delivered in a way that does not look authentic anymore, and Im starting to wonder, why do I do this?.
I like to experience the glow of other artists that are courageous with their art. That allow other see inside of them and dare to be sexual, mystical, dark and full of emotion. Its almost like the sexual energy of my Anima ( female energy ) is the spark that makes me creative.
I bet that the energy of creativity and sex is pretty close to each other. Perhaps its the same force?
I think this experience is different for everyone and a very personal thing. Perhaps other artists can relate more than others because of this ability to look inside and project their inner beauty, conflicts and archetypes out in the world.
But I want to learn about your characters, why you are attracted to draw them. why are they so important to you? I like being authentic and I hope that some of you will understand and let me know how you think.
