Misguided Ghosts by ninjaa-cake Misguided Ghosts by ninjaa-cake
This piece was pretty spontaneous. Earlier on today I went through the photos of huge butterflies that I've taken two years ago and made brushes based on them. Then I got bored and sketched faces and decided to try out the brushes that I made.

Feel free to interpret this picture however you want. To me this piece is about having many aspects of a personality which come together to create one person; the person that the world sees you as. There can be a side of you that's all sassy and confident, and there can be this shy one. Depending on the situation you feel lost and in the other you might act differently. Sometimes it confuses people which of these (amongst many other different behaviours) is their true self.

Okay, first of all, I LOVE this whole colour scheme you've been working with. The whole shading versus outline, the structure of these faces and the spontaneity of the colours. Everything just contrasts so beautifully. It just looks so... I don't know. Natural. Flow-y? That's the best way I can describe it. It's just so nice to look at, not to mention the whole idea behind it. Very beautiful. =)

Thank you Dear :glomp: I'm really particular when it comes to the visual things, everything has to be balanced, flow well and generally look good. I keep telling myself to change the colours a little bit but so far I really like this colour scheme so I'll abuse it for a bit longer ;]

This is a very beauitful piece. :) Did you get the title for this from a Paramore song?

Yeah, it's got that dreary sound to it, I usually use a lot of song names because I'm crap with naming my pieces.

I can definitely see subtleties in the aspects of her personality, she is beautiful, yet deep, intelligent and emotional. Beautiful work!

Thank you, every single one of us is a beautiful but an extremely complex person. Usually it's the others who mess us up. Thank you :tighthug:

totally agree with what you said about this piece; I have sides to myself, and for a while I lost myself in one or two of them..I'm okay now though (:

I can relate to this piece too, the scenario changes everyday though and I'm pretty sure it's just me being a teenager, I'm glad you're okay now, and who's to say all the sides of you aren't you? ;)

Your traditional media skill is more than good enough, all you need to do is familiarise yourself with a painting program. You'd be whipping my ass if I'm honest, I'd be the one coming to you (: Anyhow, I'm here to help :heart:

:lol: Girrrrlllll, you need to stop that! You've got an eloquent style of your own unmatchable to anyone here.

Bottom line, I'm in love with it! What I want to acquire is that freeness and ability to design those wonderful strokes. But I'd never kick your ... well, you know... never!

:wow: That's amazing because I wonder why my pictures appear soooo patiently confined. I get horribly impatient and my hands numb, my attention span is nil to nothing, and once I work so much on a picture, I can't go any further... like I can't breathe. I'm surprised I'm in that category. Hey, I get the same feeling when I look at those High Definition Photo Realistic pictures. I shake my head and think I would go insane to even attempt that kind of work.

Hey, I gotta thank you for your comment... it's a high compliment! :iconhug1plz:
