Compelling image. Hopefully that's paint and not a tattoo. Things could change for the better. :)

Is this image by chance for sale? I'd love to use it as a cover for my book.

I love this piece.

I feel like the title represents the words of people who don't understand her emotions.

What does the title of this piece mean in comparison to the image

What I am interpreting (putting a story to it) is that this girl is suffering from something of the past
and the title is a tough love message to her and everyone else

Am I right?

This is really cool- to me it's funny that she has those words carved into the very thing that will help her find what she seeks- herself! The title really illustrates that imo: in my opinion growing up means that you stop seeking other and things outside of yourself to give you what you want. Instead you being to look within and in doing so you find your true strength lies with your outlooks and your actions :)

99% of you who have commented on the pic are idiots. who are you to say what a person is going tho, what he/she thinks, how he/she lives. you know nothing of this artist so you should fucking keep your mouth shut! this is art and art is based on emotions, and for one this pic ( i am not dising the artist) i found of a website where you type in your own words but use the same pic over and over, i found the website this pic was most likely made on 6 years ago. so grow up people! art is a way people express themselves and if you are just going to be a bitch about it then don't comment. did ya'll mommas teach ya'll any manners?  if you dont have anything nice to say then shut the fuck up! i hate how people freaking make hateful comments on pics like these. if you have any ounce of an artist you would have the common sense to know that art is no always happy, but it always expresses emotion. and if you are not an artist what the hell are you on a art website in the first damn place?!

Well you seem to condescend everyone in the comment's maturity but then my eyes wander leftward towards the motion, your name, your profile picture, and naturally towards breasts (primal male instincts). It seems contradictory.

I don't usually comment when people argue but everyone calling the artist an attention whore is a bit over the top, based on the title and the photo, this is not about attention. The insults on here are uncalled for. For those of you who say "Get help" and don't post these kinds of things, I would like to inform you that I HAVE had these problems and HAVE gotten help, my councilor always told me to use my art as a release of my emotions instead of cutting and it helped. Art is an excellent coping mechanism and posting my poems on this site had gotten me much needed support that I was not getting when I needed it. The support people give is inspiring and it's meant to help the person who needs to convey their emotions, it is not meant just for attention, it is to help release the negativity and to move past the issue causing the negative emotions. I believe that the people willing to post these kinds of pictures are doing something good because instead of hurting themselves, they are turning the negativity in their lives into something beautiful and raising awareness about a growing issue. Also, saying that someone is privileged just because they have internet does not mean they do not have some bad things going on in their lives. I don't understand what the point is in saying that you have no problems because you have internet then comparing suicide to Africa. There are suicides all over the world, there is death all over the world. Suicides are not usually covered in the news when there are more pressing problems such as starvation, tyranny, war, etc.


Also, this is a beautiful work of art, keep up the good work. =)

You do realise that they probably used photoshop for the words right? Anyways sad thing is when your heart gets broken that's what people say "grow up". And if you get far enough in a relationship and had dreams of going the long run with that person yeah those are the thoughts you are going to have. People who put comments like you did are the people who want attention. So to you I say grow up. I, however, think this is fantastically done. But to each his own opinions.

You do REALIZE (Not realise... I can't take people seriously when they spell words wrong when arguing... just to help you with future arguments) this comment is MONTHS old right? And I wasn't looking for attention I was getting my annoyed feelings out. And if you really did think I was just looking for attention, why comment back? So to you I say, grow up.

Actually that word is correct look it up. It doesn't matter normally people who say what their annoyed about tend to be the people that do want attention. And normally I don't comment back in fact I'm one of those people that holds stuff that I do want to say in but when someone says something to the degree that you did, that is so blatantly rude and ignorant, it's just such a pain in the butt. Normally people say rude things to get attention. And another thing you make it sound like the comment is years old. It's old only by a few months. YOU could have been the better person and say "yeah I was wrong".

They don't mean it in a literal sense. It's a way of expressing emotion, or something they wish to release in their artwork. They're not begging for compliments. It's called photo manipulation for a reason. How DARE you criticize a person's creation? Imagine this: How would your mother feel if people criticized you? Put that in your mind before you call someone 'emo' or an attention whore.

I just REEEEEALLY hate when people use the Internet to complain about how awful their life is, they should just go to a guidance councilor or something XP
But again maybe I should have made a journal about it, not put it on someone's photo o3o

Sorry if I got on you too much... I've actually cut myself before, and I don't like it when people say lowly comments about people who draw or do that kind of thing... it's a deep emotional thing that most don't understand, and it pisses me off that so many people think of us as attention whores, but we really don't have emotional support...


Just promise me you won't do it again

No, we shouldn't fucking eat marshmallows with Pinkie Pie. I already disdain the insulting of someone's art, though, I felt fit to see as to forgive that. However, the only thing that pisses me off, really, is the insertion of ponies. I didn't even plan on joining the conversation until now. Goddammit, I saw it fit to even try to defend you, as maybe some of the treatment you have received is unfair, but I lost the urge to.
