A sketch I went and did last night in sort of celebration of being in a better place mentally

When you feel like the people and things around you have failed you, you must learn on how to not fail yourself too.

I put a lot of symbolism in reference to self sabotage versus self building and how they go hand in hand.

Quote is from a book named "Lucky" by Alice Sebold. This was a memoir about how a woman survives through a sexual assault in college and has to learn how to get through it while lacking external support.

I dunno why but I felt really optimistic when I was drawing it so I like to look at it out of strength rather than being trapped like I felt before ( ◜‿◝ )♡4591900043fdc2d86004c452469feae8.jpg

Thank you; it's just basic graphite mechanical pencil though I use different size leads depending on the details/style I go with

I usually use the range of 0.7, 0.5, and 0.3 when it comes to the pencils though!
