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 bought this at the JapanExpo a month ago and hung it on my wall in my bedroom, and I can't stop staring at it, it looks so amazing :D I love all your works, but this one is my favourite <3

Ps. I hope you're not too exhausted from all the traveling and conventions ><
