Tear of the mask by Farphyni Tear of the mask by Farphyni
Well, I had two hours time this evening and wanted to play around in photoshop.
To make this "Photomanipulation" I took this drawing -> [link] , some texture-photos I took in the last days & a photo of my arm xD and so on^^
then I started drawing, erasing, etc... it was very funny xD and now...hmm.. I think I like the result :P
Hope ya like it too ^-^

About the drawing:
u know, often we make some kind of "masks", cuz' we don't want to show our real feelings for example. Here this creature also want to hide some secret (feelings/thoughts/...) , but...after a while it got very lonley, 'cuz of its reticence, so it decided to try to tear of its mask and now you can see two different sides of it.
The arm is coming out of the dark fog as a symbol for the "break-out" from the reticence and dark thoughts.
I choose the eye-colors red and blue 'cuz they look so different from each other && if ya mix them u get the color purple (that's why the arm and the whole creature is purple ;P)
more I don't want to tell :P feel free to interpret it by yourself.

Inspiration:
a dream, my diary && a song ^-^ ([link])

Time: about 2 hours~

&& this time I alo want to show you one of my old poems in bad baaaad englisch X''D

Masks

Hope shining bright,
through the awful fear.
Dancing the way,
next to the deep.
Looking down,
in the dark,
full of my pain.

Deep dark pain,
screaming loud,
coverd with masks.
No one sees,
no one hears.

Masks I make
everyday,
for protecting myself.
My scars wouldn't be hidden,
if you would just
look me in the eyes.
But all what you see,
is my mask.

Happy, sweet, nice,
my masks are.
They're kind and gentle,
like you want it.
This all what you see,
what you want to see...

Pain, awful pain,
is burning in my head,
is killing my heart,
is hunting my soul.
Covered with maks.

You think,
that you know me well.
But you don't.
My masks are you best Friend,
are what you see,
what you like, but...
...this isn't me.

Do you dare,
to look me in the eyes?
Do you dare,
to look behind the mask?
Do you dare,
to come with me?

Are you strong enough,
to stand the truth?
Are you powerful enough,
to face the beast?
Are wise enough,
to know what's right?

Walking to the deep,
away from the light,
shining like a star,
looking down,
thinking,
bleeding,
...waiting...
for the person,
that can say:
"I see you."
A Person,
who looks inside...
...behind the masks...


^-^

It's amazing how different this looks from the drawing you started with! It retains the mystical depth of the original and adds a lot of new feelings. Simply great! :la:
