He Once Was Scared | A Mixed Media Art Project [Eng/Esp]

To be scared means to be tossed into a state of fear, apprehension, or worry that an evil will be bestowed to you. Men supposedly are not born to be scared of anything. At least, that's what Jaime's father preached week during hunting season he accompanied him to their lease. So, while sitting there with our protection, patiently waiting for that big game to come into focus, those were not the proper times or spaces to seek guidance about the dinosaurs that scared the living daylights out of him during their frequent visits.

In fact, it wasn't until he grew to adulthood that he could joke about it with his friends.

On those occasions, his father, if within earshot, frowned, then interrupted in his usual gruff tone, "that's totally nonsense, dinosaurs! no son of mine would be acting like a sissy."

On those occasions, Jaime would recoil whenever he thought of his father in the past, and go seek his mother to speak to her about one day when he would have a son.

So that he could participate in all those things his son wished to do;

So that he cold teach the difference between loving someone and belonging to someone;

So that he could give all the comfort, love, and care that he had longed for his entire life when he once was scared.

For my current mixed media art project, I wanted to start with a scary face. The eyes would be the telling part so that once could see the fear. For the young boy, this was horrifying. For the look, I decided to use a stable diffusion image. The program I used was StarryAI. for the images that would surround the scary face, I used a calm element. That represented the boy's mother whenever he thought of her. The dinosaur was the monster in his dreams. I located a fierce looking free-sourced image.

Below are my steps for the stable diffusion image. I feel that the description used produced the exact scary look I intended.

StarryAI Text input:
"Am I nothing in the future but a tangles mass of thoughts and eyes in this humanoid body."

Runtime: 50
Seed: 2718430098

StarryAI Result:

To blend my images, I uploaded all into Canva. That way, I can take advantage of my upgraded Annual Pro Membership Subscription that affords me features such as, resizing, background removal, image positioning, colorizing, and filtering.

Below are the procedures:

Started with a blank canvas.

! [He Once Was Scared Spanish Translation]

Una vez tuvo miedo

Apophysis-Scared.jpg

Tener miedo significa estar sumido en un estado de temor, aprensión o preocupación por que te sobrevenga un mal. Se supone que los hombres no nacen para tener miedo a nada. Al menos, eso es lo que predicaba el padre de Jaime la semana que, durante la temporada de caza, le acompañaba a su coto. Así que, mientras estábamos allí sentados con nuestra protección, esperando pacientemente a que la caza mayor saliera a la luz, esos no eran los momentos ni los espacios adecuados para buscar orientación sobre los dinosaurios que le daban un susto de muerte durante sus frecuentes visitas.

De hecho, no fue hasta la edad adulta cuando pudo bromear al respecto con sus amigos.

En esas ocasiones, su padre, si estaba al alcance de su oído, fruncía el ceño y luego interrumpía con su habitual tono ronco: "¡Eso de los dinosaurios es una tontería! Ningún hijo mío se comportaría como un mariquita".

En aquellas ocasiones, Jaime retrocedía cada vez que pensaba en su padre en el pasado, e iba a buscar a su madre para hablarle de que algún día tendría un hijo.

Para que pudiera participar en todas aquellas cosas que su hijo deseaba hacer;

Para poder enseñar la diferencia entre amar a alguien y pertenecer a alguien;

Para que pudiera dar todo el consuelo, el amor y los cuidados que había anhelado toda su vida cuando una vez tuvo miedo.

Para mi actual proyecto artístico de técnica mixta, quería empezar con una cara que diera miedo. Los ojos serían la parte reveladora para que una vez se viera el miedo. Para el niño, esto era horroroso. Para la mirada, decidí utilizar una imagen de difusión estable. El programa que utilicé fue StarryAI. Para las imágenes que rodearían la cara de miedo, utilicé un elemento de calma. Eso representaba a la madre del chico cada vez que pensaba en ella. El dinosaurio era el monstruo de sus sueños. Localicé una imagen de fuente libre de aspecto feroz.

A continuación se muestran mis pasos para la imagen de difusión estable. Siento que la descripción utilizada producido el aspecto de miedo exacta que pretendía.

"No soy nada en el futuro sino una masa enmarañada de pensamientos y ojos en este cuerpo humanoide."

If only Jaime understood that everyone is afraid of something, more so those who claim "not to be sissy". Then he wouldn't stress so much and above all, he'd be himself.

Lovely art! The way you merge the dinosaur and starryAI images is imaginative. Well done. !LUV

Yes, that is true that everyone is afraid of something at any given point in their lives. Parents especially should understand the fears of children, no matter the gender and work with them to overcome those fears. I feel that my character, Jaime, does not have a closer relationship with his father. I also feel that our society has placed restraints on our male children not to show emotion or express fears that are sometimes natural.

Jaime's attempt to project himself into the future and ensure that he work with his children to understand them in their time of need is admirable. I hope he can break the cycle of what may be termed "emotional abuse."

I'm pleased you liked how my mixed media art project turned out and complemented the story.

Take care and have a good start to your week.

Very intense piece. All of us have fears and also ways of coping with that fear. Dinosaurs are low in the hierarchy of fears for me because I know they don't exist, but it would be very different if they were alive today, and I had to hunt them for a living

To a small child, time is of no consequence when a fear gets into their mind, and that fear is revisited in dreams.

Thanks so much for visiting. I appreciate it and your support. Take care.
