Last Piece

Maybe it's not always about trying to fix something broken. Maybe it's about starting over and creating something better.

Picking up the pieces and re-building yourself can be a tricky experience. The pieces never seem to fit quite right into the old spaces. It's a breath of fresh air to realise they don't have to, you can create something different out of the pieces, something better. You will never go back to being exactly who you were, but you can be someone wiser and stronger.

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. Sophie (the girl in the picture) is learning this...
And while I've had a tough experience recently, it really has made me stronger. I'm coming to terms that things will never be the same, but I'm okay with that, stuff changes. I want to make that most of what I have now :)
Enjoyed drawing this, I hope her expression doesn't come across as to sad as it's supposed to be a hopeful piece - I do hope Sophie figure it all out soon.
:) It's more sketchy than I would usually like and there's some obvious flaws that are already bugging me, but I tried something different with the lighting and she doesn't look to bad for being underlit XD

Thank you, as always :heart:

Peace love and finding that last piece,

My favourite.

I saw this when you visited Salt Lake Conic Con/FanX and have been a fan ever since!

I saw this piece in the book Top Tips From Professional Manga Artists.
I freaked out seeing the work and was like; "That looks like Destiny's work. "
And after snooping your page, I eventually found this and was close to messaging you.
I was so worried someone stole your work.
But then found your info in the acknowledgements at the back of the book.

I can relate to this in the way you intended and more; this reminds me of my autism, a disorder represented by a puzzle piece.

Wow, this is beautiful and I feel like many of us can relate to feeling like a part of us is missing. It's perfectly conveyed in this piece.

I made a song to this picture about a year ago..
Not anything professional.. just simple electronic dubstep.. i even made a couple of remakes to that track. ❤ It somewhat emphasised what the picture is saying^^

The missing piece is the first thing that came into my mind.

This fits so well~I have a gorey habit of cutting myself and hiding it,I feel myself darkening when My brother's around.
WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl

I love how you capture the essence of feminine vulnerability and strength with your work. If only more guys would pay attention to what you make and see in each girl in the world a person to empower and protect. Then the world would be a far better place.
