Open my Heart to You by DestinyBlue Open my Heart to You by DestinyBlue

She opens herself up and reveals her soul to someone for the first time. 


The beginnings of Paige's story. With Sew Closed my Soul by DestinyBlue and Abandoned by DestinyBlue following.
I wanted to show her innocence and her naive willingness to expose herself (in stark contrast to the next piece) Her story's not finished yet, please do expect a few more following images of this young lady.


Not entirely happy with the outcome....
The concept of her exposing her glowing heart/soul by lifting up her skin, like undressing, I like; but the execution leaves a lot to be desired. I used a reference photo of myself, so tried to go for a more realistic anime look with the pose, but I understand the angles of the arms, though realistic, don't work so well. I really really enjoyed painting the glow from beneath her skin, though yes, I sacrificed her boobs for this :) But yay, drippy glow! ^0^
I learned a lot and will prepare better at the initial conception of a piece from now on.

It is amazing how beautifully you express such honest concepts. You take real human longings, which are often difficult to pinpoint into words words, let alone admit to others, and you communicate them so elegantly and openly though your artwork. I think this is what a lot of girls really want to do, to reveal their true selves to someone and be accepted fully the way they are. It's probably what most people want deep down. Maybe that's what pushes us to reveal our bodies to people, sometime to people who don't deserve it, because we want to be known and loved in spite of our flaws. Thank you for sharing, you have real talent and insight. Thank you.
