Abandonnique:
adj. phobic of being abandoned
n.m., f. sb who is terrified of being abandoned

It’s quite a common fear amongst adopted children… To be abandoned again, and forgotten. At least; it is certainly my own biggest fear.
I didn’t want to portray someone broken and crying; the little girl is standing and proud even if the fear is eating her heart… isn’t it the way how we should all face our fears? ^^;

I’m very unsure about this one… I made like 15 different versions with different tones and lightnings and still, for some reason I’m not very proud of it. :frustrated: :no:

Wonderful work once again, the texture and the location really help to portray a feeling of loneliness. The little puppy even adds to the effect (aside from being cute).

I really like how the dock she's standing on is detached from any land, allowing it to either float to or away from the castle; underwriting once again the theme of the image.

Well done :clap:

Your comments always make me happy, thanks a lot! I'm even more grateful since i was very unsure about it, portraying a fear is difficult, and it's hard to know if you succeed or not.
And bravo for the dock! :highfive: is she really lonely and abandoned? or maybe is it just her fear who blind her? i guess she's the only one who can know the truth...

"for some reason I’m not very proud of it. :frustrated: :no:"

Looks like you're working on a new fear. Lol! I like it. The mood fits what you're trying to portray. The dog is a nice touch also, because I think they fear being abandoned also. Plus, it doesn't matter how alone we feel, our companions are always there for us, even if we forget.

You’re right, we often forgot, or sadly are too scared to just notice that there IS a person who cares…
Hundred of dogs are abandoned every summer :no: , also the dog is here to accentuate the “innocence” of this fear.
Thanks you so much for your nice comment, i appreciate it a lot! :iconnewglomp:
