I need No Name, No Mask now...I'm free as a Fly

I am impressed by the number of symbols and elements you used in this image. I noticed the flies, the mask, the button instead of the eye, the tear & the scar, the collar, the overgrown lips, the mushroom hat, the stars & moon on it and the part-glows.

The image seems a metaphor for one who pretends to leave a different life, who hides behind masks. The flies might symbolize the poison / lies we accept in our life and the button might symbolize that we are partially blind.
I think of the hat as the world we live under, but I feel there is more to it than that.

As a whole, I appreciate the composition, find it highly original and well realized and look forward to your next deviations. :D

wow! just wow! now let me start by saying this , is this pure art i cant believe how much time you took to fill in every single shading details,contract,the textures,colors and how well you added in the fly details when their crawling around her face like that when the red button on her eye it reminds me of that stop motion movie "Coraline" but overall i love how you made her wear a mushroom hat it makes her look like a human mushroom and the lips well detailed with color in everyway :heart: so great job you deserve six arms times five thumbsup ! you totally nailed it :thumbsup:

omg this is just too cool. The fact that the clothing makes the form of a mushroom multiplies the awesome factor by a kagillion

I hate it.  I love the art, I hate the deception.  This person has been deceiving men all of her (his) life.  And we are suppose to now celebrate that he now comes out of the closet?  Free as a fly is exactly correct.  Not free as an eagle.  Nice work my friend.
