Hero by Oinari-Hime Hero by Oinari-Hime
A personal project and reminder to stay strong and keep loving despite struggles.

Strength can be found in many forms. Not just in brandishing a sword and fighting blood soaked battles. But in having the courage to love and love then without boundaries. Despite knowing the other person's past and scars and battles. Despite the walls they've built and armour they've put on. If we can but bare ourselves and love without limits, we could achieve true love. True comradeship, endearment and fulfillment.  

“Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will." ― Mahatma Gandhi

“Anyone can hide. Facing up to things, working through them, that's what makes you strong.” ― Sarah Dessen

“Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up.” ― Louise Erdrich, The Painted Drum LP

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” ― Lao Tzu

A very powerful image. 
Here is another (in my mind, appropriate) quote for your collection: "Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you. Love me and I may be forced to love you." - William Arthur Ward

It's a great work.....I can tell you one of the emotions that I see in it is love without reciprocation. Something like that definitely tugs at the heart strings. Thanks for responding...I hope you are doing well.

This is what you get for wandering onto a curious DiviantArtists page: the curse of curiosity.

I must say I have always found tales of the tragic hero to be the more enjoyable, both from a written and audience perspective. The means by which their mission is charged, and the usually quite somber and heart rending returns to get their just reward. It would seem in the case of the dark knight above his reward is the knowledge of a job well done, and a battle well fought. For I think no amount of love could heal the savage wounds set upon his back.

As I know little of the magic wizardry that is the visual arts, I dare not comment on the use of colors or lines. But to quote a line from old: I know what I like, and this is it. Suburb work seen more than once throughout your gallery. We of curious minds await more artistic ventures on your behalf with baited breath.

(Really shouldn't write anything down after reading Shakespeare, tends to make my wording overwrought. My apologies.)

When you start adding colour I can advise then. For now, it's looking grand so far.
