Ash is dealing with someone really negative in her life, someone who doesn't believe in her, who doesn't -want- to believe in her. Someone who actually would like to see her fail just so they could say 'told you so'
It hurts when someone like this says things to try and bring you down, but she's using the situation to be a better person. He reaction is equal and opposite, she wants to be a special effect make-up artist for film and TV, and so she channeled her energy into creating this!
Then she cuts that person out her life. Go Ash!
I'm undecided about the style of this... but wanted to try something, so I went for it! But I'm not convinced by it XD
~I have a bit of time off from conventions now, so please expect lots more art from me soon! For now you can enjoy this as a wallpaper!
Peace, Love and Positivity,
Sticks and stones may break my bones
But words can never hurt me right?
A positive attitude brimmed with light
However the bullets can pierce my heart
Or cut right through me, when they are sharp
They keep shooting out of their mouths
The bullet-rain always shouts
But watch as your bullets hits the roof
Because now my heart is bulletproof
Your art always inspires me, I always wants to draw stuff using the poses and symbolism yuo use, but then I tell myself, you already did that, so it wouldn't serve much purpose, especially when I can't fnd a way to make it unique or distinct from yours. today I decided to write a poem, because that is still a diffrent take on what you did, THe poem shall also be called Bulletproof
I do hope to see more beautiful art from you.
Truly remarkable details you put in both the art and description.
"If she can do, i want to try, too." Their hearts stir in empathy.
This is Beautiful, your art is the best I've seen
Go on <3
I can totally understand the feeling though... When I have that kind of persons around, it usually makes me want to fight harder and harder, so I can be the person who said at the end "told you so" > : )
Great picture, and you're as amazing as always at conveying your mood and feelings through your drawings Hoping the best for what's going on
(also that makes me think of that music somehow : www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLr_3h… , it never fails to bring back motivation for me )
Find yourself and be yourself. Only you can break the cycle of abuse and only you break free of the memories that cycle around in your mind. Find strength in the fact that you survived the abuse and are here today to speak your truth. Do not allow yourself to succumb to the words people have said to you, the actions done against you, and the names you have been called. Yes, you will experience depression, anxiety, trauma, and PTSD. But believe you are stronger than these and that you will recover. You are not like those who harmed you and you don't have to be nor do you deserve to think that you are. You are a unique individual and that's okay. You are enough to take care of yourself and that's okay. You are okay and you're going to be okay.
"I will not make the same mistakes that you did
I will not let myself
Cause my heart so much misery
I will not break the way you did,
You fell so hard
I've learned the hard way
To never let it get that far"
Is this by chance referencing Kerli's song Bulletproof, off of The Love Is Dead album? If not, it fits perfectly.
You do such excellent work! Thank you for sharing.
