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.

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!

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!

#She reminds me a lot Morgiana, don't you get a little inspirated by her :3 ? Redhaired and thoses chains are very well done. It's very well done and original : )

By the way, I have a question. The datrade said there is no need to put # in comments, but I did see people saying it doesn't work and the comments they posted without # weren't credited. Which is really true? I'm just curious : )

And yes, Morgiana was my inspiration for this. This girl is my OC, but honestly Morgiana was just my inspiration for this drawing. In my manga, this girl is never chained like Morg, or is never like a slave. More like an orphan, a bit similar background to Morg but it's pure co-incidence. I have created this OC long way before I even knew Magi existed XD

Thank you!

Datrade has so much bug, i prefer adding the # it always work in this way xD
But a girl give me 10 with datrade without # and it works too.
But when you give some 50,70... comments i don't want to take risk xD

She can be an inspiration for everybody, that tiny girl who try to fly
for freedom *w*

OHhhh now I get it. Yeah, you won't want to take the risk xD 

Indeed! I love Morgiana. She's my fav female character in anime world, along with Kagura from Gintama and Mirai from Kyoukai no Kanata.

I think the concept is wonderful. I have had some bad issues I've had to face to feel as free as I do now. I'd also like to note that the hair is slightly different in both sides of the "mirror"  which however so slight really helps highlight the difference between them. Well done.

Ohmy ;w;

Thank you so much for your kind words! I am glad that the difference between them is noticeable, I was afraid it might just look strange or something, but if in a good way then I'm still glad :D

Really? I had the same experience, I had to face it before I did finally feel free so that's why I thought I'd draw it for this contest. Freedom is a really wonderful feeling.

Thank you again!
