Trying to love myself by Rajacenna Trying to love myself by Rajacenna
This is my very first self-portrait. A lot of people said to me that I should do I self potrait but I thought it was just weird. But I suddenly came up with this idea and the easiest thing was to use myself for it.
I wanted to give the feeling that I was locked in a heart and I couldn't get out of it, only if I try to love myself.

I didnt drew for 3 weeks:O, a lot of people were interviewing me about my drawings and I did a lot of studying and writing :O

Hope you like it:heart::hug:

(Oh and I didnt put much effort in the hands, sorry :XD:)

I used:

- B and 8B pencils
- Tissues
- Kneaded earaser

Vision: When I saw this picture on your front profile I thought it was a photograph but then I realized that it was a drawing. You have great eye for deatails. The hair expecially. But from everything to the eyelashes to the lines on the fingers. Wonderful. (: The only thing that I don't really enjoy, or like about this is the heart as the background. If you just did the full paper it would be even better.

Originality: Not many people put their self portrait inside a heart. I really like that. And I think that's all I have to say about this.

You did a wonderful job. Your details are amazing and you are a awesome artist. (:

I just love your artwork!!! How do you do it?! It's amazing!!! I am really inspired. i don't get how you can take so long to draw something. If I spend more than a few hours drawing, I have a complete meltdown because I didn't finish!!!! I don't get how you do it! Luv it! :)

Echt gewoon geweldig!!:love:
Of had ik al een comment gegeven??....

Mag ik wat vragen??
Voor een tekenopdracht voor school moesten we een zelfportret van een schilderij of tekening uitprinten en daaronder nog een paar vragen beantwoorden.
Zou ik deze mogen uitprinten??
Natuurlijk schrijf ik dat jij hem hebt gemaakt!
