Inner Strength

when life knocks you down and everything falls apart,

you only have to look within

all the strength you need is already in your heart.


This is for my friend Maia - a leukemia survivor - and one of the most beautiful individuals you could ever meet.

She is without arrogance or ego, and quite silently I have always thought there was something great behind her surface appearance that most people miss.

At the age of only 19 she has overcome the disease and her spirit shines as bright as ever. This one is for you Maia, best wishes :blackrose:

You did a really nice job with this picture. I'm simply speechless! If I were to give any criticism, it would be that you don't really overcome inner strength, you learn to control it. Again, very nice.

The message is that through inner strength, you can overcome anything. Not "overcoming inner strength". :)

I can't believe the links to this are broken. The 2560x1600 version of this is exactly what I'm looking for.

I will say that it looks great. It really does. It reminds me of the Village Cinemas logo that I see when I go to movies.

What I say next is out of artistic ignorance rather than anything else. I can never really understand these pictures with seemingly random shapes. Is there some sort of technique behind it?

This is truly a mind blowing piece of art. How was it created?
