little roots by DestinyBlue little roots by DestinyBlue
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.

Speaking as a dad, you look at just about any young child (yes, even when they're being snotty you still think this after the fact) and wonder how could anyone not love them. Sophie's face has so much sweetness and innocence in it that you know the father had to be a completely messed up person to not want to be a part of that. 

Would that there weren't so many real Sophies in the world. :(
