This was done for a contest on dA where the contestants were told to do an unconventional self-portrait. I decided to portray my spiritual self with different symbols for the viewer to pick out and interpret. Now, nobody on all of the sites I posted this picture actually took the time to decifer some of the things on here, so I will give you guys hints: the eyes the object she is sitting on is partially surrounded by water, I gave enough of it for you guys to see shape of the clouds she is surrounded by two elements, what do they mean? the center figure is an actual creature, I want you guys to guess what it is my birthday is in late December, 1989 That should be enough, and understand that there still is plenty more. Also, please please PLEASE no rude comments, I am only human, I am aware of the mistakes because some jerk already pointed them out rudely to me. Constructive critique is nice, but there are boundries. If it makes you feel better to savagely rip someone's emotions appart (which I know many of you people here like to do) please seek immediate mental help. Seriously.
