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

Trying to get better at painting soft and lose without being too blurry... hmm.. the girl is called Ash, she happens in some drawings from me. Generally when in need of some kick-ass attitude :)

Peace, love and warpaint,
~Blue x

Determination. Undertale. It's everywhere, man!

Seeing Ash putting on her makeup on the bumpy train ride fills you with determination.

I read in the descriprion that this piece was inspired by a funny thing, but the meaning that came out is very deep.
Putting up make up, cut hair, change style... for a woman could have a strong meaning.
I went through a very hard period this year, I had to face many fears and mental blocks.
I felt like I had decided to go to war against them, the things that were imprisoning me. I felt fragile, but determined.
One of the first things I did was to shave half of my hair and dye them purple. LOL XD
It could seem stupid, but sometimes it happened that, when I was lowering my guard, I looked in the mirror and that mohawk recalled me that I was at war and I couldn't give up!

This certainly has a sociological standpoint feeling to it. Art is all about inspiring the viewer to have thoughts, to think. On that regart, this piece sure succeeds. Good work!
