A Process Of Self-worth - Alternate Version by ericinprogress
A Process Of Self-worth - Alternate Version
Here's a re-imagined version of what I originally intended it to look like.

Likely I heard it in undertones,
Often a subtle remark reveals more than intended.
Said it once and should have meant it then,
Too often distance creates a void that you have to struggle to cross on your own

Those regrets have a funny way of consuming you if you let them,
Overwhelming needs to give in to every heartless word,
Gathering every wasted moment,
Eagerly trying to find a way to out of my own head.
Today felt like it was the right time to let it go.
Haven’t realized every step towards the edge was reaching it together.
Even having a chance to take another step with you was a process of self-worth.
Relieved to find you there after finding my way on my own.

Eric R. Martin
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States
Currently based out of Long Beach, California I am a member of RAW:natural born artists. I have had one foot in and out of the art society for the last 12 years choosing to focus on personal projects instead of a professional avenue.

My style is loose and personal. I usually rely on imagery I see in abstract things from nature and society. I try to create environments that tell a story and relate to others the inner workings of my mind.

I have published several times with ImagineFX. My work is featured in the book, "Fantasy Workshop: Mastering Digital Techniques":www.amazon.com/Fantasy-Worksho… and Socar Myles', "Fantasy Art Drawing Skills", www.amazon.com/Fantasy-Worksho….

In 2010 I was awarded grand prize in Corel's 25th Anniversary contest for my painting, "I stopped to Day Dream and 20 Years Passed Me By": fav.me/d2rcjps
Interests
  • Mood: Joy
  • Listening to: Jimmy Eat World
  • Reading: "Atlas Shrugged" Ayn Rand
  • Drinking: H20

:rose: Forgive the lateness of this… :rose:

:wave: Welcome to :iconi-heart-colors:! We're a group dedicated to showing imaginative, colorful and vibrant artists and their work. 


:bulletblue: We’re an unusual color-oriented group with our own rules--we only accept works that have more than a certain amount of color in them, are extremely color-focused and we really appreciate good presentation. This to only bring you, dear members and watchers, the color-wise best and most inspiring pieces of art! 


:bulletgreen: We welcome artists of all skill levels, as long as their art is colorful! If you are an artist who is not afraid to use colors, please do join us! If you're only an appreciator of colorful art, you might want to watch the group instead. 


:bulletyellow: To get started in the group, please familiarize yourself with our Rules of Submission, on the group's front page. If you have any questions, please take a stroll through our gallery — there are many examples of how we categorize art present in each folder!


:bulletred: And of course, if you have any questions or suggestions, please note the group and one of our helpful admins will get to you shortly!


Glad to have you aboard!

You mentioned in your profile you generally take inspiration in the world and the abstract and use environment to tell a story.

Is it possible for you to maybe explain this a little more?
