This work is very personal to me, I wasn't going to submit it anywhere but I decided to put it up here for a bit, I may removing it in the future. Edit: due to the amazing support I received on this piece and the wonderful comments I will leave it up, thank you all! Details:
This was very challenging, because the two models weren't very alike and my idea was that they must look alike.. the one is the ghost of the other so.. it makes sense
Hard work but it paid off, hope you like it! ...Here is my idea behind this work...
As you see, the title clearly reveals the concept of this piece. I wanted to portray the feeling of letting go of the past and embracing the bright future.
You may be wondering why I chose to portray this exact feeling.
The answer is really very simple. I’ve been having a lot of issues in the past (if you remember I was away from dA for a few months this summer), I’ve made a lot of mistakes but recently I feel I’ve changed. I think in a new, different way, I feel grown up, I feel different.
And so, here is the moment when I let go of my past, full of bad memories, I leave it behind and head for the future.
This is what inspired me to create this image and why I chose this title. I feel reborn both mentally and physically and I’m ready to face everything life has in store for me!
