My Artwork

This is just a bunch of the stuff I draw. I draw some weird stuff sometimes. I probably won't update to much.


6. Reflection - April 7, 2014


     Hello! Been a while, huh? So this is actually one of the first non-cartoon drawings I have done in a long time... even though it's from a cartoon. I mean, I didn't draw her as a cartoon. She is kinda a real life version of Mulan.

     Basically, this is a quote from "Reflection" from Mulan. A few days ago, I was making a playlist for my Tumblr, and I had decided to go through my old Disney playlist on Dad's computer. I had made it when I was about seven, so all songs were there, because "they purty." The full meaning of the song didn't hit me.

     Listening to it four years later, having dealt with the same "Look at me. I will never pass for a ... perfect daughter." thing myself (and still dealing with it a bit now), my heart is shattered and lying on the floor. Been that way for a bit.

     I decided to draw this, mainly because I figure if I actually embrace the heartbreak, I will stop crying while listening to it on loop... like I am doing as I type this.

     Anyway, that is supposed to be Mulan, but she doesn't quite look right, because I didn't draw her in her classic cartoon style. I drew her real life style, because while I am working on the Art project in school, I do not need to get stuck in cartoon mode (said the person crying over cartoon songs).  

     I think I'll just type the lyrics now, because I don't want to stop typing even though my (burnt to a crisp) hand is killing me. Then, I'm out.


Look at me.

I will never pass for a perfect bride...

Or a perfect daughter.

Can it be

I'm not meant to play this part?

Now I see,

That if I were truly to be myself,

I would break my family's heart.


Who is that girl I see,

Staring straight back at me?

Why is my reflection someone I don't know?


Somehow, I can not hide

Who I am, though I've tried.

When will my reflection show who I am inside?
