Why Don't They Care? by tribble-of-doom Why Don't They Care? by tribble-of-doom
An art project where we had to choose a theme and make a drawing about it. (I dunno how big it looks here, but that thing is huge. It's like, three and a half feet long, methinks.) And we had to include two symbols from a Picasso painting called "The Guernica" (in case you're curious, this is it - [link] )

And so the theme I chose was human induced suffering of the animals.

I have here - various birds with their feathers falling off, signifying the little time they have left on this watery rock, I have a tiger coming out of a tiger-skin rug (I know, that one's kind of hard to tell...), and an elephant whose tusks are made out of piano keys and whose feet are severed (people buy elephant feet for good luck), the horse a Guernica symbol, and I've got a melting polar bear for obvious reasons.

In case you're wondering what those white blobs around the birds are, (and no, they aren't just feathers I was too lazy to detail), those are supposed to be a flock of doves, using the dove symbol from the Guernica.

And that is all I have to say.

This took far longer than I wanted it to.

I love it all - the idea (not saying that people should be causing suffering to animals), the drawing, and the meaning in it! it makes me relise how much humans are doing to hurt the earth - and how much more we should be doing to help it. so what im trying to say is, thanks, for opening my eyes.

I-I don't even know what say. This is just shocking- shocking how much it really shows how people cause animals to suffer, and shocking how good you are at drawing. This is amazingly drawn, really really cool if you ask me (and probably thousands if not millions of other people). You were really able to capture emotion and put it into this picture. My heart breaks for those little birds... And you said that it was hard to tell if that was a tiger turned into a tiger-fur rug, but I saw that long before you had to point it out because I could clearly tell what it was. Those who can't tell, well, blah to them. I think this is just so amazing... so well drawn... I'm envious of how good you are. ^^ I loveanimals, and hope that one day their suffering can end (even if it means that humans wipe each other off the face of the earth).

good work very nice and you drew this for a project? but still the main question is you drew this? and another question your ability to do aweso animations and drawing did you practice this art or is it a given gift?
