The Cage by DestinyBlue The Cage by DestinyBlue
Our own mind; it's a place we can escape to, but we can never escape from. It's the ultimate prison.

She sits here and thinks as she plays with her hair, not realising as she twists it round her fingers she's creating her own cage,physically and mentally.

Wanted to design something interesting with the framing and composition, and went with the narrow colour scheme to try and reflect her internal feelings.

I'm trying to worry less, and was thinking about worrying less, then I realised I was worrying about worrying less! Made myself smile XD
The mind is such an intriguing thing, how no one else can read our thoughts, but they influence everything we do. We can imagine whats it's like to be someone else, but never really feel it, we will always be within our own heads, looking out...

The truth that no-one wants to admit, but most can feel, like an aching in your head when you feel like you can't escape from yourself, that then spreads and roots itself in your soul, enough that you feel the need to control it when really, you need someone to listen so you don't have to fight it yourself, despite thinking you can.

A place where we can escape to but can never escape from; so true. I love that all your art doesn't only look awesome but it also carries meaning and substance
