Spirit Day: Behind her Smile by angelshauna Spirit Day: Behind her Smile by angelshauna
My lineart edit piece to celebrate spirit day :)

So basically I saw the spirit day thing going on and thought I'd pitch in, and one of my favorite artists DestinyBlue posted this lineart today/yesterday(idk, tired) so I thought heck why not :)

This is supposed to represent lying about your true feelings and I know that it's an issue many people my age have to face, including myself. It's hard when you think that no one will understand your feelings, or no one will want to deal with you when your whole word comes crumbling down. So you put on a smile and hold back the tears until you can't bear it anymore. I know that feeling, and I know it gets better, especially with help. Sometimes what you really need to do is get rid of the act and tell someone close how you really feel. It helps SO MUCH. Seriously, if ANYONE is thinking about taking their lives or hurting themselves or someone around them, I'm always here to talk. Don't make a mistake you'll regret forever, just talk to someone, please.

Credit for the lineart (and my inspiration) goes to DestinyBlue: [link]

the easy thing is wear up a mask
the hard thing is show your real feelings

A very complex theme. No words are needed when you see her face trying so hard to hide her pain and true feelings. :(

You did a wonderful job coloring this! :+favlove:

Fantastic way to show its meaning.

God there is so much feeling to the heart it brings memories and I still hide how I feel with a "I'm fine" and a smile but inside I'm breaking down. That's why I feel so thankful for my friends and family by shoulders to cry to and the people I spill my heart to.

A very clever way of showing that while some people might be smiling on the outside, they're really crying on the inside.

Please follow the link below to listen to an original demo with a Spirit Day feel. I will update it with music later, but please download it if you enjoy the general message.

Sometimes I have to this, but not due to the things you say in the description. If I'm really upset and hurt and I really want and need to cry, I ussually hide it because I don't want my mom to suffer seeing me like that... So I do it, and when I get calm I told her what I'm worried about

Sorry if my english is confuse xD

This should be so sad? the theme is quite childish

The worst thing that can happen to you is having no one you can tell how you really feel. That's what I think. Hiding your true self sucks! D:<
