Illustrator Destiny Blue, whose real name is Alice De Ste Croix has been posting her work constantly on DeviantArt since 2004. At first glance, her art might strike you as just colorful yet melancholic Anime-inspired portraits. But, if you look a little closer, you will notice the hidden messages that tell the story of the British artist when she struggled with depression.

She has become very popular due to the vivid characters which she draws from her imagination and also her ability to tell emotional stories with imagery. Her fans call her “Blue” and she creates all of her art from scratch using Photoshop CS6 and is completely self-taught.
