Kaleidoscope Heart by xStarCrossedx Kaleidoscope Heart by xStarCrossedx
"All the colors of the rainbow,
Hidden 'neath my skin,
Hearts have colors don't we all know,
Red runs through our veins.
Feel the fire burning up,
Inspire me with blood of blue and green.
I have hope,
Inside is not a heart,
But a Kaleidoscope."

Sara Bareilles - Kaleidoscope Heart

I recently discovered this song and I love it to pieces, even though it's extremely short. If you haven't heard it, then you muuuust. [link]

Obviously it inspired me to make this picture, featuring a very simplified version of my drasona and a not-so-simple kaleidoscope-patterned heart. I don't think I'll be trying to make a pattern like that again any time soon.
Also, it's about time I changed my Deviant I.D. My ugly mug has been there long enough. (:

Thanks very much! ^^
And no, actually I just used Crayolas...xD

never heard of crayolas, tho they seem to work very nice

..Really? Well they're a very cheap brand of colored pencils. But yeah, they do work pretty nicely most of the time. =3

once again i see that itīs not the material makes the artist but reversed, tho the cheap ones to tend to break a lot
xStarCrossedx Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hehe indeed. (: In fact I saw a really cool drawing that was done in nothing but crayon (wax crayons that is). I tried to find it again but I can't, otherwise I'd show you. XD
And yes, they do tend to break a lot...but even expensive pencils do because of how soft they are.

Also, thank you very much for watching! :icondragonhugplz:

ah too bad, I love to see how people can make awesome stuff from simple materials.
I donīt mind if the top mine breaks, but if the entire core is shattered you sharpen till you go nothing but a little cheroot of a pencil left, thatīs rather annoying

youīre welcome :meow:

I love seeing that kind of art too. (:
Definitely annoying, and I've run into that problem many times with my pencils. Such are the difficulties of being an artist, but it's worth it, yes? XD
