little roots

How can I grow if my roots go nowhere?

Everyone elses crown grows to a tree, mine just grow thorns and snowdrops.

Sophie is musing on her identity....
I've never really gone into her backstory with you, though she has an extensive one. Lets just say it's complicated. But regards to this piece; she doesn't feel as grounded as other people as her father never wanted anything to do with her.

Her hair was supposed to looks a lot more obviously like roots, and originally the concept was more clear, but I pulled this into her face, as sometimes you can say more with an expression than with any symbolism :) :heart:

I spent way too many hours on this really, though it was fun to do a more anime proportioned piece, mixed with a painterly style :heart: Lots of things could be better, but oh well ~Onto the next drawing! XD

Peace, love and exploring your past,
~Blue xx

She is simply gorgeous and yes, I couldn't help but give you a fav for it. I think everyone has those moments in their life where they are unsure where their roots are and where they're going. So on top of the gorgeous picture, the story behind it touches.

Beautiful. I love the contrast between the vibrant colors and the slightly sad look in her eyes. Amazing.
