Rain on My Sunshine by yuumei Rain on My Sunshine by yuumei

Thank you all for the kindness and encouraging words on my last journal post. I spent the past 3 weeks getting therapy and focusing on myself. At times I would feel like I am getting better before falling into despair again (and a stalking incident last Sunday that involved police removal did not help the healing process…), but overall, I am getting better.

Sometimes I wonder which side of the reflection I stand on. The one holding a raining umbrella when the sky is clear, or the one holding onto sunshine when it rains? Between the unfortunate things that happen in life, and my own reaction to those things, I can’t tell if I am responsible for my own unhappiness.

My therapist will be treating me for PSTD on the things that happened in my past, starting from my childhood. I’ve been reflecting a lot on my life, and incorporating the experiences into new projects. I want to understand my life through my art.

While I haven’t been posting these past 3 weeks, I have been busy writing out the new script for a remastered version of Knite, doing new character designs, and researching new techniques to speed up the comic making process. Knite is a story that lies close to my heart. It’s heavily influenced by my childhood, and while I never got to finish the old story, I am determined to finish the new one.

I hope to continue both Knite and Fisheye Placebo at the same time. I can’t realistically draw it all by myself, so I will be making a post in a few weeks about hiring helpers. I’m not completely back yet, but I’m starting to heal, and I look forward to all the amazing things in 2016.

Thank you all again for always being here for me. I hope I can give back as much as everyone has given me.

if i were imortal i would watch your art for along time *.*
epicpompadourdude Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2016
this is reaaally not possible, a rain is made with water at high temperature or low pressure, you cant find water in either those states inside an umbrella, i know what im talking about because i study these kind of things, pls, a lil research doesnt hurt
Inkslicer Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2017  Student Traditional Artist
The water is on the outside of the umbrella.
Earth-Dreamers Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks for the science fact
And also, it's art :)
epicpompadourdude Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2016
you clearly dont understand anything about physic and chemistry, just because its art doesnt mean it can be senseless, pls, study a lil
DreadisDead Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2016  Hobbyist Artist
Holy fucking shit dude. Its art; it is symbolism and basic creativity which you lack. I could understand if the anatomy is wrong, but its not. What if in this world, it works like that? How about you have a open mind before you use your "Research" and shit. Understanding science doesnt mean you have to follow it this is a clear depection of what the artist wanted. Oh and you're "i know what im talking about because i study" Bull shit is annoying. Geez fucking douche.
epicpompadourdude Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2016
i'll try to help you as much as i can.
1-why is it ok to point out something wrong if it had to do with anatomy but not with the water in the umbrella? you contradicted yourslef there but i will let that pass even tho i shouldnt.
2-even tho its art, doesnt mean it can be senseless, as yuumei didnt point out what world she was in its obviously earth, and water on earth works as i explained before, you would know that if you studied a little
3- you typed "a open" instead of "an open" and "you're" instead of "your", your grammar is pretty bad, so i will ask you to read some books, thanks

 I can see you're too delusional about facts that you go blind on art only because of something so trivial to the art world. You seemed like one of those people who's interpretted as a nightmare cause you can't afford\accept people to dream.

For your reason number 1 let me remind you knowledge is limited yet immagination is limitless,

for number 2 obviously because you are complaining on something so trivial she didn't bother explaining it,

and for your Reason number 3 not everyone is perfect egoistic bastard and if you're correcting someone's grammar then why                                                    isn't your sentence capitalized in the beginning as well as the sentence of your reasons 1,2 and                                                  3??? and all of your "I" is in lowercase. Can you also tell me why you spelled "yourself',                                                              "though","shouldn't","it's" and "didn't" wrong? all of it doesn't have any apostrophe.

"water in the umbrella" should be "water and the umbrella"
"even though its art" should be "even though it's art"
"doesnt mean" should be "it doesn't mean"

at least he has far less mistakes than your pubescent brain. Now it's his turn to ask you to go read some books.

I understand what you're trying to say. But again, it's an art website. People are free to uleqsh their minds, even if it's the most illogical or the strangest of things. Not every artwork musr be bind to science. I know that you clearly want to prove a point, but how about just adorethis lovely artwork? :)

1. It took you 3 months to reply
2. If you don't have anything good to say, don't say it
Enough said, hope you have a great day!
epicpompadourdude Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2017
i take 3 months because its not really relevant for me and i dont care, you reply in the same day because you have no life and is just too fucking sad

Beautiful artwork. In the simplest of way, it portrayed a deep
emotion few could feel and is hard to truly understand. We all
wish for a brighter sky above us, even though most of the time
the cloudy dark sky looms. Our will to get better and our fight
against our struggles will always be rewarded in the end. I hope
you're in a much better state now than before. We all wish you well.

What I love in your artworks is that they are not just wonderfully beautiful pictures, they do have a story inside, sometimes even the whole new world. That's magical!

I like rain. It is monsoon in my country now.
maximumblackwhite Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2016
yuumei you have such a beautiful soul! I can tell it by your wondrous art, filled full of emotion and compassion, I sometimes tear up uncontrollably. I am glad to hear that you are getting better and hope that 2016 has been kind to you so far :) You have inspired me so much as to not only what kind of images I want to draw but also how I should view the world and how I should live. I always appreciate your work! Thank you.

It's pretty unusual to see an original concept. Maybe I'm wrong and it's just very rare, but either way, another great idea you executed beautifully.

This is... beyond words, I can't even express how amazingly moving this is Ran Crying Icon   your art is flawless as usual and the message is even more so, you are truly an incredible inspiration.  I found you through ink blazers around four years ago and I still think that you are one of the most amazing artists I have ever seen in the online community <3
