Friends set you Free by DestinyBlue Friends set you Free by DestinyBlue
The cages we create can be unlocked, and the best people to do it are our friends. They can give us wings.

Sequel to: Trapped by School by DestinyBlue

This is dedicated to all my friends and supporters, you've helped me more than you'll ever know :hug: Thank you.

I enjoyed creating this, and especially like the fact that the cage she drew was rubbed out by her friend and has now become her glowing halo. Funny how things change :)

I had situations in my life where I had to paint my own wings, I drew about it in my piece: Paint your Wings by DestinyBlue but there are so many situations in life where we need to rely on others, teamwork is the backbone of society. Help you friends, they probably need you more than you realise.

Peace love and oldest friends,
~Blue x

I feel like this is my best friend and I. During Junior High, my best friend was NOT my best friend. She was teased and bullied, called a " Mexican, do you speak English?" I joined in, the attention was off me so why not? That summer she tried to commit suicide. That next school year during volleyball I got to know her more, and I reached out and pulled her out of the tar of depression. (Request for a piece like that? A hand stretching out to save you? Just ideas) before she moved a while ago, she left me a note in my locker. Telling me her story. Every time I read it I cry, thinking about how I saved her from killing herself.

To be honest, this work is gorgeous; i understand and identify your feelings and subtext but I've been under the same and the way you put all these tragic beauty is just wonderful (Believe me, there's tears in my eyes right now I'm also looking at the cage picture :heart: )

This amazing artwork and a great friend inspired me to write a poem called Friends set you Free. I hope you don't mind that it has the same title.

This is just so true! And amazing artwork as well...I truly wish I could draw like this.

Reminds me of when I was once crying after class and my friend was there though school was over and I could just hug her until my sorrow went over... I'm so thankful for her about that time :heart:
   Amazing art, Blue!

"friends" are jerks who criticize your every move and what your in to. 
garfieldcfcfc Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2015
You need some new friends, if that's the case.
Len11999 Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yeah but they'd either have to be older or younger than me. 
garfieldcfcfc Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2015
Then go out and find some new people to be around, sticking with people like that is really painful ;-;

Beautiful concept and gorgeous artwork. I absolutely love this.

This and the first one man... I saw them and they hit me so hard. I'm normally very shy and very very quiet. I'm the girl most people don't really talk to because no one ever really knows what to say.
When I'm with my friends though it's different. They always comment on how much energy I have and how they don't think anyone else can see that about me and I've said before "It's because they don't know me." People that know me, know I'm the exact opposite of what I seem. :D (Big Grin)

Thank you. You are the person who've inspired me to be brave enough to start practicing my painting again. <3

holy ....

I found this pic a long long time ago (in a galaxy far, far away) and was wondering: who the fu*** created this. And now, I've got the answer! You!

You are officially one of my favorite deviants on this website. You put so much emotion in your work and it really shows. Just gorgeous! 
You definitely know what art truly is.
CatrinaColeman Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2015  Professional Traditional Artist
Your insight makes your work incredibly compelling, and gives each piece a sweet and innocent beauty. Thank you for being you, and for sharing who you are with the world. I adore your work, I literally just signed up here yesterday and you're the first artist I saw, I was an instant fan. Now it seems my profile has prompted me to add "favorites" and of course I had to stop here first. You are amazing, inspirational, and, whew. girl. you made me cry. I hope to grow and learn as much as you seem to have. <3

The funny part is, with the first girl there, we don't realize that the other girl was just trying to draw a fuzzy mustache.

The best moments are when you have someone to give to wings to fly. This picture is amazing.
Your work is truly impactful.  It's all the friends I've made on DA, plus my good friend Thanous, who have set me free from the tethers of my cyber-past.

Upon thee shall I bestow a llama. :)
