C.E. - Facing The Chained-self by Kohaya7Kae-13 C.E. - Facing The Chained-self by Kohaya7Kae-13
This is my entry for Kai-sama(*Tsundere-girl)'s contest!

I thought I wouldn't make it... T.T But I'm glad I did.

Anyway the theme is FREEDOM. And my interpretation to this, is that we all have to face what chains us first before we can completely be free from it. Note that this is my personal opinion! Everything varies... And when I was drawing, this is what came up to my mind. ^^" 

I hope it makes sense.
And thank you for viewing! :D

Lovely concept, I really like the contrast between the two girls. I think it would have helped to see both their faces though, so you can see the expressions clearly.
I do like the idea of looking into a cracked mirror though.

Ohh! You're actually right *-*
I could have showed their faces, so it's clearer but thank you so much that you think this idea is good too! :huggle: makes me happy!

What a really bright piece. It really speaks a lot out of it and really gets a lot of emotion across it all. I think a lot of people could relate with the emotion in this piece and you drew it so well.

Aww thank you so much! That's what I wanted to convey... ^-^
Yey! I'm glad at least, it has the emotion in it.

interesting title, cause it looks more like the chained self is facing the free self. really wonder what the symbolism of the broken mirror between those two is. does it mean, they're losing connections? nice work!
Kohaya7Kae-13 Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, that's actually it!

The broken mirror can somewhat be interpreted in many ways. It can be interpreted like what you said, and it can also be interpreted that the mirror breaking means the chained self is finally letting herself to face what freedom she should get, and that she's breaking from her cage or something.

Or it can be interpreted in other ways. :D
Thank you for viewing and comment!
