Exodus by meoww Exodus by meoww
Category: Digital Art

The colored version of [link] (finally got it done!)
I have to submit it for the contest because it fits the theme perfectly.

This is inspired by a song called "Exodus" by Evanescence. I loved the song since the first time I heard it. I could really relate to it at that time (before I graduated from high school,) because I was under a lot of pressure to make good grades, but I felt like there are so much more in life that I'd love to learn and accomplish besides math and science. And high school is a place that I never feel "belong." The things I drew on the wings are little things I created before, they're things that belong to me, and they're part of my dreams.


"Exodus" lyrics:

My black backpack's stuffed with broken dreams
20 bucks should get me through the week
Never said a word of discontentment
Fought it a thousand times but now
I'm leaving home

Here in the shadows
I'm safe
I'm free
I've nowhere else to go but
I cannot stay where I don't belong

Two months pass by and it's getting cold
I know I'm not lost
I am just alone
But I won't cry
I won't give up
I can't go back now
Waking up is knowing who you really are

Show me the shadow where true meaning lies
So much more is made in empty eyes
