This is gorgeous, everything about it; the shading, the details, the symbolism.
Thanks for sharing this. I know you drew it awhile ago, but this was just what I needed to see right now. :heart:

I can relate to it so strongly, and I'm sure many can.
Amazing.
Do you plan on coloring it? I would love it.

Amazing artwork, as always!

My interpretation is based on both the image and the title and might be somewhat literal.

The girl is so eager to leave all the bad behind her and be free, to fly with the birds in the open sky, that she finds what binds her to her past only as an annoyance. She's too stressed to take the time to untie the bonds one at a time. Instead she tries to break them by shear force, which is impossible.

In her hasty struggle she tears of the connection with her roots and with her eyes set firmly on the horizon she fails to see both the beauty and and life in side of her and right in front of her. As she only strides to be much more than she is she misses out on they few things she can enjoy from where she is.

Since the dark bonds show now sign of tearing it's clear that she won't be free unless someone comes along and helps her.

This piece is nice.
You won't color it, don't you?

Beautious. There is so much expression and emotion in every line that I feel compelled to look deeper and deeper still, until I have taken in every aspect of the image. Truly wonderful.

so i had to see this exactly today, right now, when i was just... made to feel exactly as the girl in the picture, but wait, that's not all, the girl in the picture looks so much like me that the only difference, except for the overall junglecookie-style exaggerations of the feet which we all love, is the length of the hair - mine's a bit longer.

it made you feel better, it made me realise how bad i feel. your art is so good, i can actually identify with it. true art affects people.

thanks for sharing the talent again! :}
