Caged Songbird by yumedust Caged Songbird by yumedust
This piece was done for a contest at my school, the theme was vague - The Animal Within. I chose a caged bird.
I remember starting this piece over and over, I had so many ideas that weren't turning out no matter how much I worked on them, I got lost in the details and technique completely forgetting about the message until I doodled this in my sketch book quite randomly, a couple hours of quick colors later and I had my piece finished.

It's strange but I've had a similar idea in my head for a while. It was frustrating because I'm not good enough to draw it. Now I feel complete because you did it :)
