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!

Rajacenna Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Haha is niet erg, ik ben soms net zo erg als jij! :D En ja ik teken nog steeds! Laatste jaren alleen maar in opdracht gewerkt, sinds kort produceer ik ook weer eigen werk en dingen die ik leuk vind om te tekenen :) en teken jij nog steeds?

The hands were fine, but the hair is the only thing that doesn't look photo-realistic.

Graffight Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
question. When you do your highlights, like the one on the tip of your nose, do you shade to there and leave it blank, or do you make the highlight with your eraser?

Thanks :o)
Ehvh Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Awesome idea :)
C0CHI Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2010
simply amazing. The realistic way you draw blows my mind. You really amazed me, because i draw too... but im so bad :(. i never learnt or something, i have the will but....always something happens and i canīt go to learn (a curse maybe? lolz)

keep drawing, that gift is something magical. Yes, the correct word: magical. And you know what? not all the people are magicians, but you definetlly are one.

(sorry for my english)
