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


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.

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

I just fall in love like I never be since years.
Why... Why I'm not the one for him.
I kiss him, he kissed me, but it wasn't enough. He falls in love with an other girl.

It hurts so much.
