“When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.” -Wayne Dyer

Decided on getting this idea out of my head before turning in for the night

PB is just as trapped as FP. PB with her responsibilities and FP by the glass lantern.
They're not that different in the end.

I will read the hell out of that when it comes out.

Love the piece by the way. It nicely captures the similarities and differences in the two princesses situations. 

I notice that Finn and Marceline look like they're the two trying hardest to press against the glass, almost like they're trying to break through and reach her, to "free" her from her own mental prison so to speak. Was that intentional, or just a result of drawing placement?

yeah PB though free but still imprisoned because of her duties ad responsibilities and Science.. if you ask me FP is more free than her because she doesn't take the world on her shoulders and she still young to take things... FP beat her at that.. that's why (maybe) PB is Jealous of her not because she liked Finn (which is very obvious in "too young") but she(FP) can do whatever she wants no regrets or anything...

i really love this... you could be a nover designer.. this would be better if someone should write a matching story about it... but the poster alone.. it is great! i hope to see more

Hmm...Getting my philosopher on with this piece. Now all I need is a fancy bubble pipe, a plush red chair and a pair of comfy slippers. Flame Princess was not imprisoned by choice, but as a result of her imprisonment can grow to appreciate relationships and friends all the more. Princess Bubblegum, ironically Flame Princess's jailer, has always been perfectly free but is just as walled up as Flame Princess used to be, except Bubblegum's imprisonment is mental and is by choice. She pushes her friends away and increasingly devotes herself to science for reasons hinted at, but not yet explained. Or maybe I'm just rambling and trying to appear deep to impress a bunch of anonymous people on the Internet. You decide.

Whatever the situation, I'm really loving the complexity and philosophy hidden in this piece. You wax intricate, my friend. Never lose that. It's becoming rarer in the world, to the world's loss.

You actually nailed it on the head, and then some! Thanks for taking the time to analyze it. Fanart isn't known to be symbolic or dense in meaning, so I appreciate that you gave it some of your time :) Cheers!

Bubblegum has hurt so many people. Why do I like her?
Reply
:iconilleity:
illeity Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2013   Digital Artist
It is because there is a difference between a "good" character and a "fascinating" one :)
PB, despite everything she's done, remains a fascinating character because of what she chooses to do, even if it sometimes pushes people away.

Symbolism!
So...they see themselves in each other, and relate to their mutual feelings of entrapment?

Maybe the message is, that since PB thought FP should be locked up, PB is the one who should be locked up! :P

Actually, I like the image of PB being as isolated as FP was, except of her own choosing, since she is actually surrounded by friends. I like your PB/FP parallels. They really are linked in a lot of ways, both in comparison and contrast.

I think I understand the quote, not so sure about how the drawing relates to the quote. The quote is saying that when you judge others, your viewpoint on them isn't necessarily spot-on and it shows how you see others. PB judges other people a lot, but I still don't see the connection :iconidkplz:

Well, a quick way of seeing it is PB is just as trapped as FP, but for different reasons. And for PB the lantern is metaphoric.

There are a huge number of quotation sites out there, and they categorize it by subject usually :) The trick, is finding one that can stand on it's own outside the context of where the work is found. :)

Nice one mate! I was wondering if the switching of colours shows not just a hypothetical situation but rather a more physical one. One in which actions not considered has had an effect on others and resulted in being (in one way or another) ostracised and bottled up? Just a thought. Keep it up!

this pic does tell its meaning based on the quote. I can tell it shows how poor of judgement Bubblegum has around others. many of which had consequences.
