~*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

_____~***~_____

~*Inner Thoughts*~

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!

First off, let me say that I really love this piece! From the intricate designs to the wavy appearance it gives off. It just really brings it all together. Very nicely done, my dear! :clap: Bravissimmi!!

Second, I know EXACTLY why you mean when you talk about judgemental people. Unfortunately, I'm in the same boat, and it's about to sink on my end. :laughing: Most of my family members are EXTREMELY judgemental and cruel to me, and what I believe. Which makes it for hard living, and very lonely most of the time. So I feel your pain, girl. I do most of my anger in my creative expressions (writing) as well, and I find it helps some of the time, so the fact that you did this is very cool. :) I commend you for making such a powerful statement with your art and representing yourself so beautifully, Jamie! :glomp: :heart:

Third, who doesn't love Madonna?!?!?! Shit, I've been known to sing my ass off in the shower to her "Like a Virgin" song from time to time. (Uh, don't tell anyone that though, ok? :shh:) :lol: :D :D :D ;p ;p; ;p

Hang in there, hon! :hug:

It is nice to know that someone understands. I am not the biggest Madonna fan, but I do respect her in many ways. She seems to understand so much about the struggle of living as a female. Personally, I am glad she is who she is.
