This is sublime! I thought it was a photograph also. Then it said mixed media and my reaction was like o.O <----in a good way of course! This picture says a thousand words. SO many thoughts. Child soldiers come to mind a lot but this picture seems more personal, like someone wronged her and she's not a girl to fvck with. Anyways loved this piece. This raises social issues and that's what I like about this piece. Amazing.

This piece is amazing... Just, that intense look in her eyes. An innocent look, yet it tries to tell a story. This piece is silently expressive. I truly love it! :)
And the skill in which it was made.. just wow. Your whole gallery seems like a collection of masterpieces. Bravo! :clap:

Sorry, its me again. Too difficult to find "humor" in this image. Unless you tell us that that is a water gun, of course. ;)

"Private Collection in Switzerland"... as with other deviantART member's observations, I can definitely see H.R. Giger owning this image. Totally. :nod:
