One of us can be free... by DestinyBlue One of us can be free... by DestinyBlue
Using a shard of broken window she cuts the butterfly from her dress, giving it the life and freedom she could only dream of...

Been working on this one for a while... I quite like how it turned out mostly. I know the BG perspective is off because while I was drawing it I taught myself proper 1 point, hopefully I can implement that better in another picture. It was really fun playing with lighting and making the character lit with the secondary light which has bounced up off the floor from the window stream. :nod: Yeah. Hope you enjoy :)

Peace, love and letting your butterfly loose

This piece has brought me to tears. I can relate to this so much. Everyday I feel as though I'm chained and held back by depression

Your work is great! :) I admire how each picture paints a small story or message. I wish my work has this much depth someday…

Cool!
Really nice play on perspective, artist!
To be truly free, you must see that you are free to begin with, and that your image of captivity is only a creation of your own mind!
If you look at the picture and imagine the "hole" in her dress as the shadow of the butterfly, you notice that the girl herself has no shadow, indicating that she isn't real, yet the butterfly is!
Beaautiful piece of art!

Always amazes me how I think I've seen everything from a favored artist, and then I find huge chunks of their gallery that I had no idea existed. A pleasant surprise, as always.

free...that is something that we need to find in our heart...with heart nobody can, as much as we have always gets broken heal and become increasingly strong. although sometimes this might hurt us, because it makes the heart is closed to certain things, but someday reopen to show more powerful and deliver all, strong and careful, gentle and loving. feel deep feel
