Are drawings mirrors?

How many times have you looking at a drawing and it seemed to have eyes that peered back into your soul? What's the longest amount of time you have looked at a dawing and thought, "I wish I had the last ___minutes of my life back, but what an adventure!"?

Hello SQUIREx! Good drawings always amaze me, I keep myself looking for long minutes at them everyday, like it wants me to discover all the meanings of it. And it's good cause understanding the details I can improve my art too, and get the essence of the drawings, it's a pretty nice exercise to practice. =)

I guess I'm not all that good at drawing because the eyes in my images never look back at me and really make me feel anything. When I'm done I never wish I had my time back, in fact I wish I had more time to just paint and draw.

Depends, if the artist truly placed his heart and soul into it then definitely. If it was made as an assignment for a third party contractor with quite specific guidelines, then there is not much to say about the artist anymore.

Yes! Because every art form is mirror. Art expresses the inside stuff with all its dimension and relating the root of existence with a great potentiality!! Art has played role as a presenter of time, history, symbols, human life, search and sorrows as well as pains and pleasure with deep spiritual openings and the meaning of the life!
