Last Piece by DestinyBlue Last Piece by DestinyBlue
Maybe it's not always about trying to fix something broken. Maybe it's about starting over and creating something better.

Picking up the pieces and re-building yourself can be a tricky experience. The pieces never seem to fit quite right into the old spaces. It's a breath of fresh air to realise they don't have to, you can create something different out of the pieces, something better. You will never go back to being exactly who you were, but you can be someone wiser and stronger.

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
While I've had a tough experience recently, it really has made me stronger. I'm coming to terms that things will never be the same, but I'm okay with that, stuff changes. I want to make that most of what I have now :)
Enjoyed drawing this, I hope her expression doesn't come across as to sad as it's supposed to be a hopeful piece - I do hope she finds her last piece soon.
:) It's more sketchy than I would usually like and there's some obvious flaws that are already bugging me, but I tried something different with the lighting and she doesn't look to bad for being underlit XD

Thank you, as always :heart:

~Love you moogle, we share our pieces (cake and otherwise :))

I love it, when I first saw it, it reminded me of autism. I will definitely use this as inspiration for a next piece. If it is actually good I'll show you....

I was instantly drawn to this one as I was browsing through your gallery.

I'm a dude who's been broken myself for a really long while, and I can't even find all of the pieces to rebuild, much less turn it into something better. This reminds me that sometimes I just need to pray and hope that I will eventually find them and more.

It's kinda hard trying to put this across in a way that makes sense with your art, but I hope that creating something new doesn't mean covering up the past she has learnt from - her colours can still shine through! You can throw out the pieces so you can create your own pattern - your own personal puzzle that maybe as complex and yet as simple as you are, and that would develop throughout time and expand from your own physical parameters. :)

I noticed on a Instagram account named scarlet_Blade_ artwork looking similar to this one. Did you give permission to this person? It looks traced.

Shes just copied a piece of mine, but she never claimed to be int original owner, and someone else has very kindly credited me so I don't mind :)
Thanks for the heads up ^-^
