|Turn your back on your insecurities and stand your ground!|
I've played with this for as long as I can stand so I'm declaring it finished XP Though I'm not sure whether I'll keep the words in or not...
Inspired by Dream Theater's "As I Am" Just love those Lyrics!
"To those who understand, I extend my hand. To the doubtful I demand - Take me as I am. Not under your command, I know where I stand. I won't change to fit your plan - Take me as I am"
Be who you want to be! Even if if doesn't fit the "Norm." You're not yourself if you're not being yourself! heart emoticon
And that's the bottom line!!
This was a rather personal image but I feel the need to share it's story!
The story behind this image is one close to home. I know so many people consumed by their fears, doubts and low self esteem. I know it can feel so hard sometimes to pull yourself out of the shadows.
I originally sketched this up last year as I was having a rough time dealing with some losses. I was inspired by the song "Stand My Ground" I knew that instead of letting myself become engulfed by my sadness, I had to pull myself out. Out of the darkness.
My hope for this image is that it can spread and be found by the people who need it, when they need it. Remember, in order for there to be shadows - there must be a light! Turn your back on your fears, stand your ground and face the light. <3
I draw one shot illustrations, write & draw Comics and Children's books!
All in all - I like to create!
