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

I love the ghost-y effect of all the white and grey. Very dramatic.

This actually looks just like my cousin.  I know there is a lot more to her than I (or a lot of people) see when they look at her.  I can only imagine power underneath.

This reminds me of a book I read, MOSQUITOLAND, where the main character (Mim) would take her mother's favorite tube of lipstick and uses it when she feels panicky and in need of strength and security to do a specific design of warpaint on her face. This piece is stunning and I can't stop starting at it x3

This is kinda how I feel with makeup on sometimes. I don't do it for others I do it for myself so I feel kinda empowered I guess X3
