Take Me As I Am by cowgirlem
Take Me As I Am

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!!

So yeah... Don't know if you guys knew I rather enjoy the WWE! :) so Here's my favourite Dolph Ziggler cause nothing is manlier thank pink.
The darkness has come to the roses by cowgirlem
The darkness has come to the roses
"The Darkness has come to the roses... the fire is reaching it's end..." - Let us Burn (Within Temptation)
Another musically influenced piece! I had a lot of fun with this one - tried a new way of digital painting and rather pleased with the results :D Hope you enjoy!…
Stand My Ground by cowgirlem
Stand My Ground

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…

Desdemona - 2015 by cowgirlem
Desdemona - 2015
I decided to do another re-draw of my Desdemona from 2007! She was only a sketch back then and I re-drew her based on that sketch last year here:
 <da:thumb id="450497072"> 

Tried to do a bit of a painterly style and had a lot of fun with it! Took a while longer than I'd hoped but as it's playing with a style I'd not used before I'm fairly pleased with the result! :D
You can see progress and detail shots over on my facebook page :D
She's also printed on stuff on my Society6 account
Desdemona (c) cowgirlem        
That's right! Yesterday my lovely Cleaborg popped the question before a meal out! :)
I just wanted to share it with you guys!! ^__^
