_____~***~_____~*Musical Inspiration*~Strong inside but you don't know it
Good little girls they never show it
When you open up your mouth to speak
Could you be a little weak
Do you know what it feels like for a girl
Do you know what it feels like in this world
For a girl
- What It Feels Like For A Girl - Madonna
This piece is my own little protest. I have been having troubles lately with extremely judgmental people and some of them are in my own family no less. So instead of lashing out and saying something I would probably regret, I created this deviation.
I chose Madonna's song What it Feels Like for a Girl, because this song is a reflection of how I feel at the moment. Also, I figure who else but Madonna would understand right?! She is the champion of women expressing themselves.
I tried to make one part of the mask as feminine as possible and the other a little more masculine or neutral at least. I guess you could say this is me in some way, shape, or form. I am not extremely feminine, but I am still female. I am a strong person, but for some strange reason, I am not allowed to "flex my muscles" so to speak. "Good little girls" just don't do that.
This is my first time creating a digital painting, so be kind when you comment and remember that I am still an EXTREME NOVICE! I know I have messed up on some of the lighting, however, I just don't know how to fix it at the moment. I need to read more tutorials, I guess.
Comments are welcome and appreciated. Enjoy!
