The Little Woodden Horse - Backcover


this would be a sort of cover image.


-It's meant to show her on her so often wore long high neck yellow cotton sweater staring at this little wodden horse on the park near her school.

It's supposed to be sort of metaphorical for the wasted childhood, as she was dragged into that "world" and no matter how it ends, either way or another is gonna leave a deep mark.

So the little horse stands for the childhood, not just lost but also Destroyed, corrupted, stained, etc...

If you're wondering this pic would take place before she is dragged to the The Party and after Sphel has left her alone feeling lost, confused, and starting to realize things are not they way they should be.

Hey sketcher, recently a playground in my neihborhood was covered in graffeti. Alot like your pic here: [link]
I felt like crying because I used to play there when I was younger.
Thanks to your story, it motivated me to help clean all the stuff up.
You're doing a great job and moving foward. That is kinda what I got from your story.
Thanks for the motivation!

Incredible story! Your paintings really brought each scene to life! I know a few people who went through a similar experience :(
Nevertheless, it really struck a chord with me, especially this picture.

Recently, my life has been going through some bad turns, and I've been thinking about this series of images. I'm actually very glad I saw these because I started to realise the same things are happening to me, so I suppose in a way, I'm very thankful to you. I caught my downward spiral early.

my parents have been horrible since i was 7, now i am 17 and they will divorce this year. Im sad they didn't decide that from the moment they started to hate eachother. and my moms like "you will never find a good man" and "life isn't easy and it will be miserable to you". i will not make my moms mistake and have expentations of my life. i will aim low so that i can be happy of the small things in life. that way I will not destroy the childhood of my child like My mother did to mine...
thank you for submitting this artwork who opened my heart.

I loved this. Looked through and read the whole thing and understood how true this can be. Excellent job, gorgeous work. However, one of the pictures didn't come up, deviant claimed it as a lost file. Just wanted to let you know if you didn't already.

Loved the intense meaningful story, even with the freaky things one never talks about but I dont fill good enought to place any of it in my favorites. Pretty well drawn by the way.

This reminds me of what has happened to a playground I loved going to with my dad when I was little.

How things have changed... The playground is vandalized and broken, and so is my relationship with my father... But I digress...

This is a wonderful piece. I love her expression, and the colors of the background. Wonderful work!

Very nice idea! Just too many youn gppl actually don't realize that some steps forward can't be taken back. If you move on too fast you might tripp over.
