Carmen by sweet-innocent-aura Carmen by sweet-innocent-aura

:rose:Witness of the facts,
I will make your words eternal.
Give me paper, give me the right tint,
I will copy just like the original.

I am literature,
I am poetry,
I am emotion,
I am history.

The ink coming from my chest
will cover your eyes in tears.
I will give you my best,
Bleeding the feelings - until running out of ink.

Even when my pages turn yellow
and for you in the shelf I am too high,
<<Ego omnis sapientia ero>>,
I will be the wisdom of everyone.:rose:

:blackrose: About the drawing:
It is always a pleasure to have a book in my hands, it is like an obsession to me. To know I hold so much wisdom between my arms, to feed my mind with it... there is no way to describe it. To be able to create those books, even better. I will never get tired of writing and reading.

:blackrose: Materials:
Copic Markers, Watercolor, Indian Ink, pencil colors, white permament marker.

:blackrose:Facts about poetry and literature:
:bulletgreen: Carmen means "poem" in Latin, therefore "Carmina Burana" would mean Burana poems.
:bulletgreen: Poetry metre changes depending on the language: English is a stress-timed language, so it works by using "feet", while Romanic languages like Spanish are syllable-timed, and this one works by the number of syllables.
:bulletgreen: The Bible is considered literature rather than a religious book. If you take a historical literature class, you will analyze it by its structure, and not by its religious meaning. This can be applied to other books like Al Quran.
:bulletgreen: Symbols like "?" come from the expensive price that paper had centuries ago. To be exact, in order to make a good profit of that paper, whenever you tried to write "quaestio" (question in Latin language) you end up just writing the first and last letters: "q" and "o". Try it out, you'll get the question mark!
:bulletgreen: There are certain themes in poetry that have a concrete name due to the first time they were used. If you write about not wasting the time and live every second of your life before getting old and die, then it is called "Carpe Diem". If you write about a dreamy land outside the noisy city and you talk about all the beautiful things that people in the countryside can enjoy, then it is "Beatus Ille". As you can imagine, this comes from the Roman period.
:bulletgreen: The word Literature comes from the Latin word "Littera" stands for letter, in both the graphic symbol and the sentences of a sheet of paper. In a further analysis, we can say it is the main display of the written language.

ooo, very nice idea indeed, having her pretty much bleed her feelings out to the world to express herself. Beautifully coloured too!

thanks :)

Who doesn't bleed the feelings is absent of life, if bleeding means to write therefore be eternal and omnipresent in people's mind.

So Smash Bros. inspired you to make this piece.

Defienetly insteresting XD.

I got the impression that it's based on the opera "Carmen"

by the way, if you go to the lyrics you'll understand it's the explanation of rumors, of legends about heroes, just like oral stories started and later became written literature :)
