Feel and Conquer by yuumei Feel and Conquer by yuumei

Captioned video tutorial of this piece can be found on my Youtube at

I spent some time reflecting on my life, from the dysfunctional family of my childhood to my current career as an artist, and how this path has shaped me.

I guess part of my recovery is just taking in my life experiences, my emotions, the happiness and the pain, and turn them into art. And through the process, I learn and understand just a little bit more about myself and the world around me.

Art has always been a powerful outlet that helped me and others communicate our ideas and emotions. For all the aspiring and young artists out there, don't let anyone discourage you. Be it random strangers on the internet or your own parents, no one knows you better than yourself, and no one lives your life except yourself. So don't ever let anyone take that away from you, your emotions, your art, your sense of self.

Draw for yourself, create for yourself, live for yourself.

Hi Yuumei ! I know that you must be super busy, I was just wondering if there is a way to buy an "ultra" high resolution copy of "Feel and Conquer" and/or Re-Imagine.
At the online shop (if i understood correctly) I can only buy a printed version of it. I really like those 2 images and I thought they would look extremely good in my home.

Thanks! :)

I still come back to this piece and it still leaves me in awe every time.
NefsArt Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
wow, When I saw this, I though that it was about somebody's life. The good in the front (present/ future), the bad in the back (the struggles/past). And then I read the description and realized it was about yourself.

Art is great for self-expression and this is a wonderful piece.

iPhynxRBX Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Amazing, I like how it has a deeper meaning. Your artwork is truly a reflection of your personality.
Cheer up, I know it may not look like it but the Lord is looking out for you and regards you as His child and he wants to help heal your brokenness and make your life as wonderful as your art  if not more even though life won't always be that way. Nevertheless, if you reach out to Him I'm sure He'll respond. To God be the Glory!

The representation of "Yourself" in your art always makes me think a cool, hard working, beautiful woman who always holds her head up high. This always inspires me. I will forever respect and cherish all your art work and you. ^^
