I'm Darlynne/Lynne. I like to draw cute stuff! 😁
You can also see my works here:


Love + Art = Peace
Every work of art has a story to tell... And this is my story...

A few might think this belongs to "healing." And although it does, I think that inner peace was what lead me to heal. Before slowly recovering, I had to find inner peace. And it was through art and love that I had achieved that inner peace, the so-called "peace of mind."

Before I had this inner peace and harmony, I was a mess. I was in constant conflict with myself. I couldn't accept my failures, my past, my differences. I couldn't accept myself and who I truly was. I'd let others weigh me down, always believing in everything they've said about me. Because of this constant conflict, I had sunk into depression. I hated myself. I hated everything about me. And that hatred manifested itself through self-harm. I'd often cut myself, while reminding myself of all the negative things others had said. "You're useless, you're worthless, a failure, a disappointment," I'd often remind myself. For years, it had been this way... until I learned to express myself through art. Instead of slitting my wrists, I'd draw it all out. Art was my way of communicating and expressing who I truly was. As I began to share my art, I realized that a few people liked my art. This was what lead me to start accepting myself. I realized that I wasn't that worthless, that there was something good in me. Art had brought out the good in me. Art was my refuge, my sanctuary; art was where I can truly be myself. And it was art that lead me to love myself and to love others. 

Because of art, I had learned to love myself. And through love, I had found inner peace. I've made peace with my failures, I've made peace with my past, I've made peace with my mistakes...And I've made peace with the fact that I am bisexual. I no longer hide who I really am. I am no longer ashamed to come out as bisexual, I'm not ashamed in loving who I love... It was also through art that I had met someone who loved me for who I am. And that love has helped me more in finding inner peace.

Everyone deserves inner peace, everyone deserves to love who they want to love. Everyone deserves to express themselves confidently, unashamed of whatever makes them different... And I'm glad DeviantArt has given this opportunity to let everyone tell their story confidently.

(So... uh... symbolism... The arm/hand with multiple visible scars was meant to be my mine. It shows how I had struggled with depression and self-harm and how I am now at peace with that. I no longer try to hide those scars. I no longer feel ashamed of me. The other hand is meant to be my SO's. The person who had accepted me and loved me, the person who had helped me achieve inner peace... I don't really like to dictate the meaning for my art because I know everyone interprets it differently sooo... let's just leave it as that. Feel free to give your own meaning, and feel free to tell me what you think of my art)
Calmly Saddened
When I showed my bf a sketch of this, he said something like Blue still seems sad, but not the grieving kind of sad... But the calm type of sad. Thus, the title.
Now for a little back story.
Months ago, I drew Blue Diamond twice because I could relate to her in a way. The first time I drew Blue, I was grieving over a failure. Nothing too distressing. The second time I drew Blue, it was during that time when I challenged myself to draw daily. Once again, I was in grief and during this time, I was at my lowest... I drew Blue to show my current state. And so now, I've drawn her in a different way. No longer upset, no longer grieving...slowly starting to get better. And that's what I am right now. I'm starting to get better.

Oh, I also have this on my art page…
