~Soul~ by Helena-Lou ~Soul~ by Helena-Lou
This is a contest entry for my beloved sister :iconhideyasusoki:'s contest titles "show me your soul"
Everything here, and I mean everything, has a meaning. If you want to know what a specific bit means, just ask.
I don't want any critique. This is ME people and this picture is very personal.
EDIT: I've had a few private messages about this peice, asking me to explain some of it.
-Although it is me, I aged myself. I based parts of the face loosly around my mother, whom people say I look like. I've been told I have an old soul, so thats why I did myself looking older.
-As for what I'm wearing, I love swimming and could have swam in the olympics but because my father refused to pay for training, I couldn't. This is the costume I'd wear if I had the tummy for it.
-The colour aura is my personality. Speak to me long enough and you'll understand why.
-The chains represent how I feel against society and people. I am chained to a lot of crap.
-The butterfly symbolises my friends and they hope they give me.
-The black oil is my depression.
-The broken mirror is because I hate myself most days.

I hope that helps you all to understand me.
