This is great. I love the detail and the various uses for it. The wilting flower, adjustable hair length or style, all of that, could be anything really, and you made it look like I might actually be able to draw it. The subject, being devastated, regardless of why, is subject matter that’s universally relatable, as you describe, and I could easily use this to draw any age or gender since not only girls cry, obviously. That’s not a subject shown or spoken of enough. And even your inspiration is something I identify with; I have anxiety and depression (often a package deal, though it’s a discount no one ever asked to get), I cry over things happy and sad and sometimes nothing! So I think it’s not silly of her to worry that much that she’d cry considering I’m a grown human being with my own house and all that, and who loses things in obvious places all the time, and she knows how much phones cost probably. The inspiration is realistic but the product of the inspiration is also great here, and that’s the point anyway, right? So... Really nice work, no program needed or anything, I respect that. And, speaking of respect (as well as just to be real here), thank you for respecting women and girls like your little sister enough to not turn this into one of a million “12-year-olds with F sized breasts” tutorials. (It’s like people don’t realize they’re screwing with maybe even the same girl who inspired you here, or someone very much like her and even younger, every time they post that stuff. It’s so obvious, though, isn’t it?) I mean, girls get online, of course they will see it, and they shouldn’t think a picture of a sexualized child is the norm like that, even if the artist were inspired by another thing, they so often draw a very young looking girl with a body that’s not even realistic on a physically matured woman, and one that’s absolutely unreachable ... (the plastic surgery I’ve seen is not good, much less the things that happen if they try to force it naturally) but girls will try to emulate it regardless, sometimes sexualizing themselves at a very young age, and thinking being touched is okay, or sometimes developing less obvious anorexic/bulimic behaviors and trying to look impossible and not eating, and it’s so sad it makes me like your picture when I think of my nieces, though luckily they have good men and women in their lives to teach them what they’re seeing is not meant to be a fashion! Kids thinking like that end up women I’ve counseled before, you know? They don’t understand how it will work out as they do these things sometimes, losing bone strength or teeth, hurting their digestive system, but one way or another, they’ll be hurt. It could be that some OTHER person will hurt them one way, or they’ll hurt themselves in the process, either way, since acting a certain way or dressing certain ways they assume are normal for that age after seeing it so much, not knowing why it might give people bad ideas about their wants (never to blame the victim EVER, but they see a common thing and if it’s as common as those images, assume it must be totally normal, and if that's normal then, well obviously they don’t think twice trying to dress or act that way), or ignoring those terrible scenarios, they hurt themselves anyway since malnutrition has terrible long term effects if a person is younger. So, truly, I appreciate that aspect socially as much as the beautiful simplicity of the image and the universality of the art! Well done in every way.
