Just Under Our Skin by Ai-Bee Just Under Our Skin by Ai-Bee
Running faster than light

I can't forget why I'm trying

And asking questions that matter

It's getting harder each time

I can see I wanted to forget

what went wrong


If we stand in the middle,

can we just take our time?

Under Our Skin - Deas Vail


-------------------------------------------------------

This is something I've been wanting to do for a long, long time.

I wanted to use Balance by Deas Vail, to be an exact companion, especially after I found out the actual lyrics for Under My Skin said "repair you"and not "repay you"... I fussed about it quite a bit because "fixing" is not what I was going for, but I'd already gotten kind of attached to this piece as it was.

If I had used Balance's lyrics, it would have been these:
Without a fear of change
With the courage of kings
With a steady hand we'll place everything
Together again
We'll be together again
So let's begin to take this in


I will be the one to repay you, wait and see..

Those hands... The freedom they represent is indubitable and irrevocable. If the rest of the world could understand the simplicity of the fact that loves cares not about race, height, weight, age, or -possibly especially- GENDER, we homo sapiens would be able to discard much of the hurting and heartache. Still, we wouldn't be perfect, but we'd definitely be closer.

ANYWHO, ncfuigh9urebgawreg9g9724ugtbyrbgiwypfb'obgufvpwyib9gvre90g[h3yrg9THIS IS JUST ADORABLE.

I honestly debated making my hand more gender neutral too, to be honest.. but I'm happy you mentioned gender/race/etc anyway :heart:

THANK YOU/// :hug: :heart:

Each time I see you and Tyshea put up nice pieces; you the two of you blow my mind. There are moments where I wish I could draw like the both of you but then the thought pops into my mind "No; this is their gift." I think I'll do best with my poetry lol. I apologize for rambling but once again, beautifully done. : )

Poetry is an amazing artform too! I don't do it as often, but both Ty and I adore using poetry communicate things more artistically... It's a really wonderful thing to take words and makes them sing.

But yes, thank you!

I love the colouring and the lining and the contrast and GAH! :love::love::love::love::love:
No but seriously, I really do love the contrast- your skin on hers, and the black against the white for the clothing and the jewelry and nailpolish (we wear the same colour hahaha :dance:)

No, I really love this. Love the detail and the simplicity; sometimes the most beautiful things are the most simple- but I guess you and Ty've kinda figured that out, hey?
I think Under My Skin works perfectly for this piece- I think your fanbase is gonna gloss over the "repair vs repay" thing. We all get where you're coming from.

Anyway- beautiful job. I love it (PS your hands are just awesome :D) <3

:giggle: Ahh, I'm so happy you like it! You caught most of my little nuances too...:blushes: She usually identifies with white and I black, as far as the yin-yang kind of thing goes, but I'm ghostly pale compared to her so it makes for nice contrast.
I feel like if anything, Ty showed me that simple can be even more powerful and speak volumes. I'm kind of happy I can experiment with that knowledge now, especially in personal pieces. :blush:

Thank you again, ahhh! :huggle:
