Face in the Mirror by yuumei Face in the Mirror by yuumei
Face in the mirror
I recognize you
Sad eyes staring back at me

And I think:
How pathetic
How pathetic
How pathetic

Face in the mirror
What do you want
There is nothing I would give

And I think:
How pathetic
How pathetic
But I don’t feel sorry for you

Face in the mirror
Don’t you know
Life is already good enough

And I think:
How pathetic
But I don’t feel sorry for you
So why don’t you just smile?


Not a self portrait though I was feeling rather down when I drew it. It's all good now :D

Drawn in Paint tool SAI.

I love your art. It speaks so much.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

I don't know why, but something draws me to this painting. There is something truly unique here, and although the level of detail is outmatched by many of your other pieces, this for some reason appeals to me. I can't help but look and feel for her. The tone and the detail are somber, and almost fade. 

Truly beautiful.

Yeah this face is so familiar, for some time I thought this face had completely disappeared maybe I was wrong as always, I really should get use to it because this is my face and theres nothing I can do about it.

This reminds me of myself when I look in the mirror, I look so sad and pathetic so I just avoid mirrors. I'm tired of looking at this face anyway

I think it might be the author's own creation...?
From what I can tell, she does post poems and such under her pieces a bit, so I suppose she writes them herself :icontardplz:

You're not pathetic, darling! Don't ever think that way! Glad you can smile and create powerful artwork in the midst of everything.
MirukuKO Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Glad to know everything's all good now haha :)
I really like this portrait! All of the details are simple yet alluring.
The fogginess of the mirror is really cool too. To me it says that the sadness is being reflected upon.

RainbowTigerPaws Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2012
This is such a beautiful work of art! You are really gifted! This piece made it sting in my heart!
I felt that when i draw I get the best results when it reflects the way I feel inside.
Also I was wondering how do I get paint tool SAI?? :( I tried to download n stuff but it didn't work....
CloudsSkyAndStars Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Beautiful. C:

Can we forget about the things I said when I was drunk?
I didn't mean to call you that.
I can't remember what was said or what you threw at me.
Please tell me, please tell me whyy!...
My car is in the front yard.
And I'm
Sleeping with my clothes on.
I came in through the window
Last night.
And you're gone.

Soft, real. I have to say that the soft texture, it's...well I don't know. It's just something I find very natural, becoming. A real gem.

As I look into the mirror
who do I see
do I see you
or do I see me.
UIME :phae:

I know my me
I am aware of my we
but only you can see my you
if you do not my me about
the you you see
I will never know.
It is important for my me to ...
Be aware of my me's you.

UiMe Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2012  Professional Artist
Sorry if my previous does not make sense it should have read in the later part:

I know my me
I am aware of my we
so ...
If you do not tell me about
the you you see
I will never know.
It is important for my me to ...
be aware of my me's you?

This is not specifically what you yourself see but rather, the collective you.

Do you think that it is possible to put this notion into a wordless flash animation?
For your consideration? :phae:
