Sew Closed my Soul by DestinyBlue Sew Closed my Soul by DestinyBlue

...So I can't be hurt again.


She gave her heart to someone and they gave it back to her. She's trying to repair the damage, and wants to hide her soul away so no one else will be able to hurt her again.

Second in the seires of drawing of Paige Open my Heart to You by DestinyBlue

While creating this, I was also musing on how it mirrored my artistic situation. I put my heart into my drawings and then offer them on the internet for all to scrutinise, it can be really daunting thing. A lot of the stuff I draw is personal and is never seen by anyone else, so I appreciate the overwhelming support I get when I share with you guys. Sometimes you just want to hide away. This piece isn't born of current guy troubles for me (I have a wonderfuly supportive partner) but from discussions with other people about shared experiences... and bleh, other stuff..

Been enjoying exploring this style more, I know it's another portrait, but I wanted to keep it intimate, like the viewer is close with her and feeling what shes feeling.

For whatever reason... this somewhat reminds me of pictures of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

I just have to tell you, I stumbled across this picture quite by accident, and now, after seeing the description made me realize, I see myself in this picture when it comes to my broken/non-excitant relationships.

You see, I may be Bi-Sexual, but I've been hurt so many times, I've had enough, especially after my ex-fiancé deleted his Twitter page for the 3rd and final time a month ago. May 28th of this year WOULD have been our 2-year anniversary, if Neville would have stopped treating me like shit. *shrugs* whatever. :fuzzydemon:

I'm just happy to be single again! :fuzzydemon:

Heart   I truly admire your courage to share your personal experiences this way and I think one reason your art is so powerful is because you are honest. To share your inner soul is a precious gift indeed, to us spectators who can easily run rampage all over you. THAT is strength!

I really like the lighting in this. It's just . . . it makes her look softer somehow. It almost makes me miss the fact that she's sewing into her own chest.

Very cool and sad. Toy Chica blushing
