I'm Complicated by DestinyBlue I'm Complicated by DestinyBlue
Working out how to understand and love yourself can be the most tricky of things. Like trying to solve a rubik's cube when you're colour blind.

Sophie is colour blind, and is trying to figure out how to solve her cube, for her, her own identity feels like a cube with not enough sides... :heart:

Wanted to be quite simple with colours on this, not so happy with her eyes, but I enjoyed using all that blue! :D

Thanks for all your support recently everyone :hug:

~I'm heading back over to Australia in a few days to exhibit at Sydney and Perth Supanovas, so have lots of preparing to do! XD

Peace, love and complications,
~Blue x

Everything here is incredible !

This artwork is amazing. The colors are beautiful and it’s so entrancing. The deep meaning in this separates this from other drawings and paintings. I often look at this and see myself reflected in the picture. I understand what it is like to be extremely complicated.

You see kids, this picture shows that everyone born in the 70s-90s has built in rubik's cubes to make them work.

hey copied this picture, here is her reupload:  Free your Soul - Edit of I'm Complicated by MiyaZMarie
CrazyYetAdorable Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
She did not. It was just an edit. She credited her in the description. :)
XxBlazingCrystalxX Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'm sorry but adding a shitty filter to a picture and giving credit is still stealing.
CrazyYetAdorable Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
The entire commitment was exactly "stealing". She just picked up a random artwork and adjusted it, then credited DestinyBlue for owning the artwork at the first place. Stealing is when you take over someone's art by secret and never imply it, claiming that you fully own it. 
XxBlazingCrystalxX Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
So what if you trace an artwork, and still give credit even though it wasn't a base.
thats still stealing.
please just stop, this girl is stealing artwork from this guy by just adding shitty filters over it, what she is doing might be a cool thing to do but she shouldn't be uploading it.

Rubik's cube aren't that hard to be honest, even though there are 43 quintillion combinations
Xyz-DragonRider Featured By Owner Edited Jun 14, 2017   General Artist
Somehow, I've never been more grateful to own a Rubik's Cube, because it has led me to something beautiful.
ecuasage Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2017
This describes the girl in my life very well. ;) So indescribably beautiful, so frustrating sometimes and always precious.

Did you know you can solve a Rubix cube by turning it on its sides six times, no matter what?
AntCatPortfolio Featured By Owner May 9, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Probably not the most appropriate thing to say on this piece, is it?

Lovely piece. Discovered your Deviantart page this evening quite by happenstance, and I'm glad I did. You have a lovely style. I read about your struggles with depression and anxiety, and though I've not dealt with them on the same scale, I have a family member who has dealt with bi-polar depression and other complications, and I've seen how it can change a person, how it leeches away joy and happiness, motivation, and, in the most extreme cases, the will to live. Fortunately, she received treatment, and is doing well today. It's a testament to your inner strength that you sought, and continue to seek, help and guidance, as like any other major disease, it is most difficult, if nigh impossible, to overcome and control without therapy and medication. It can't have been easy, and any joy and peace you've since reclaimed, own it fiercely, as you've earned it. Keep earning it, and continue to tell your story through your art. I wish you every success on your path to mental and emotional wellness, and hope the words of support from all of us here will help buoy you when your sinking. Take care, DestinyBlue. You make the world a better place.

I immediately connected with this piece, and then read your description and it made me love it even more. Perfectly depicted emotion. You got your message across, for sure, even without the description. Love the color, and the symbolism. Love the style and the glow. Keep it up!!

I live with anxiety and panic attacks, and this piece spoke to me. I wrote a poem inspired by it on my profile. Thank you for sharing your art with the world, and I'm so glad you are doing better. 💙🦋

DestinyBLue I made an edit of your picture! It can be seen at… , or my gallery. Please let me know what you think of it! I'm trying to make it very clear that the original picture is yours. I had fun trying to do these edits :) .

:iconinuilikeitplz: This is so beautiful and impressive!!  I really love how you used a Rubik Cube as being the game that explains the title, "I'm Complicated".  I could never solve that puzzle.  I always thought about taking the cube and peeling all of the stickers off and putting them back on each side just so I can pretend I solved it.  I haven't done it yet.:iconinuhappyplz:

Hi DestinyBlue,
You are such an inspiration and thank you for all your efforts.
I saw this picture and wish to use it as a metaphor on a Mental Illness blog - It just really connected with me and my condition.
I promise to promote your artistry as the creator and awesome human being :)
Totally understand if you don't want to.
Many well wishes for the new year and thank you for your time.
