Led Gaze by elsevilla Led Gaze by elsevilla
"The new online medusa, the more i cry the more im paralized in my artblock, my cage of tears."




This happens to me all the time, you are feeling good about your self, then turn on the computer look at the LED screen and stare at the online medusa right tru the eyes, you feel tiny, what you been doing all this time, you got no talent you are nothing. And there before you know it, you have a tear cage around your face.


The thing about artblock cages filled with salty water is that you cant see clearly.

Just painted my frustration.

A ti te pasa en la parte artística, a mi en la parte personal.. no pequeña, diminuta.. invisible.. sin tener capacidad de tener una relación amorosa con ningún ser humano.. :sad:

You have captured your frustration perfectly (as much as having the emotion sucks when in the moment). I have had this happen to me so often. I'm sure every artist goes through it at one point or another. But I do have to say your artwork is wonderful, and your talent and style is your own, so rock it! Been a fan of your work for years, and still am! :)

I see so many great references in this picture, like the Deathstar from Star Wars, Spiderman, Totoro, Jiggly Puff, Brave, Tony Tony Chopper from One Piece, My Little Pony, and a little fish girl whose name I can't remember from a Miyazaki film...

Also, is that one eyed woman Leela from Futurama? And on the poster, is that the lead singer of Gorillaz and Vocaloid Miku?

I love looking at your pictures because you always put in little bits and pieces. It's like a "Where's Waldo" book but with a "What inspires Elsevilla" trivia.

Not to mention that your style of animation is one of my all-time favorites!

Keep feeding my muse, she's always hungry for your next piece of art!

A veces si, y es horrible cuando te agarra el monstruo del bloqueo...
Sobre tu arte.. te banco muchisimo. Es más, no lo digo por decir sos mi favorito de todos los ilustradores que me gustan (top tres asi Elsevilla, James Jean y Lizzy John) y es que no me olvido mas cuando vi lo que hacias por primera vez.. no podia separar los ojos.. yo siento que realmente lo que vos haces tiene muchisima alma y a mi me llega. Eso te vuelve mi favorito.. hasta creo que si hasta el dibujo tiene una pequeña imperfeccion lo hace maravilloso, no se.. siempre me llena el corazón. Sos un gran artista.. sabelo.. Yo siempre te voy a considerar el mejor..
Saludos.
