All images belong to Destiny Blue.
This one reminds me of Destiny Blue, as in the artist.
I don't know why.
This image isn't a portrait of her but it just - !! does!!
It just really reminds me of her!!
I have a lot of artists I really like, such as Nene Thomas and Anne Stokes, and Destiny Blue is another one.
I was super-gutted I didn't get to see her at MCM Comic Con (here for more) this past summer, but hopefully I will soon get to buy a print of one of the above pictures, which are my particular favourites. She has many more pictures on her Deviant art:
I love how the style is so very anime, but there is something else as well, for example in the picture with the girl with white hair, barcode on her arm, gazing up in the rain - I feel like it has a touch of realism too.
I think what really adds to this is the colours - amazing blends of glowing, swirling tones, it's just completely mesmerising.
I think her artwork is now available for sale online. I hope she gets some licensed merchandise out too. In different areas of my life, people inspire me to get better at a certain skill so that I can inspire others like how I was inspired. Whenever I see Destiny Blue artwork, it really makes me want to learn to draw! Properly!
