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.

First: Very Nice artwork

Second: Reminds me of the song "Stripped" with the line "Let me see you stripped down to the bone"
