Your words were the bullets, trying to take me down, make me feel smaller. But I put their power into becoming better, and bigger. You didn't mean to, but you helped make these wings.

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! :D :heart:

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! :heart: For now you can enjoy this as a wallpaper! :D

Peace, Love and Positivity,
~Blue x

your feelings on your art is amazing and wonderful, when i read wings i think in my favourite god of Ancient Egypt: Horus. When you are bad and have many problems in your life you have really two options: Fall or rise up (maybe with your wings). Cheers :)

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

Thanks, altho DestinyBlue was the one that painted the idea so vividly that it sparked this poem. That said the secret is to just express yourself and what you feel on a piece of paper, in principle not that different from art. The not so secret part is practice tho

I love the idea of a series that, when the character rises with her strength, the physical world changes to show her wings. The wings become planted in the landscape as symbols of hope for others and the people she's helped in the past or will help in the future. In the beginning, no one notices the wings branded on the sides of buildings, scorched on the earth or bent into places, but slowly people see where this person has been and they know she was strong for herself and others. They know because it is undeniable, reality changed to prove it. 
"If she can do, i want to try, too." Their hearts stir in empathy.
