WARPAINT by DestinyBlue WARPAINT by DestinyBlue
If it's war you want, it's war you'll get. I've played nice, but now I stand my ground. Don't underestimate me, I'll show you just how deadly my sting can be.


Inspired by a girl I saw putting on makeup on a train, it was a pretty bumpy ride, but she knew exactly what she was doing, eyeliner in one flick, lipstick gliding in a perfect circle, I swear she also stopped just before a really bumpy bit, like she knew. Honestly I thought even if it did go wrong, like she got lipstick on her cheek, she would just roll with it and turn it into warpaint. She had that kind of determination, it already looked like she was applying warpaint! :D

I've been working from life more recently and wanted to test my skills, also using a limited palette, which is very rare for me! XD Still working on getting better. Hope you like so far ^-^ Hmm think I made it too blurry though... trying to control focus and limit unnecessary detail..

Peace, love and warpaint,
~Destinyblue x:heart:x

I love the muted palette, it seems so fitting with this piece, I particularly like the subtle detail on the mouth, you can tell it took a lot of dedication but it is no way overworked, perfection. As usual your eyes hold so much hidden emotion that touches your soul if you look too long, so long you can barely pull yourself away.

I've neglected to comment on this for a while...because...This is honestly way to outstanding to be described in words...Anime Emoji (Blush Oh yay dance) [V6] 
The texture, creativity, originality, metaphorical meaning, beauty, color and just complete and utter perfection is endless Clap 
My eyes have literally been opened to true perfection and I am in love! I love deviantART! :love: Love Tards ...

This is gorgeous, and a woman I could definitely respect. She's fierce, she's beautiful and she's going to get done what she has to get done in life. Love it!
