Start with the story first and then move on to the angelic section yeah?

-SkiTz


Title: Reflections

Description: This is a drawing of a girl that is over-weight, and much like the rest of the world... she is affected by the media (magazines,T.V., etc..). She's looking at herself in the mirror, and as many young girls do, she's imagining herself as a skinny, beautiful girl. It seems to her that everything and evryone around her is beautiful... but not her, the truth however, is- she IS beautiful- as are many of us that fail to see that about ourselves. So next time when you look at yourself in the mirror, see yourself as beautiful and not a reflection of the imagination.

Your first work reminds me of a Picasso my husband and I have a poster of hanging in our house - Girl Before a Mirror.  Only, he shows the opposite perspective - the seemingly beautiful woman sees a distorted figure of herself in the mirror. 

I think your work is wonderful and resonates with many, if not all of us who see it.  Well done!

Hi.  Smiley

Your "Reflections' is certainly me! Only I stand rather than sit. Many times I'll stand in front of my hall tree mirror and pretend I'm  pretty. Roll Eyes I'll wear things I made that are not real age appropriate, like real short skirts and tight dresses. Sometimes just in my 36A. If I look long enough, I really do feel pretty... Smiley

I'm not really that fat, sort-a pear shape, just not pretty. In fact I've never been pretty or had a nice figure.  Cry  Undecided

Sorry, your work just hit that feeling I get pretty hard.

shydeana- I always felt the same way, and still dress like a teen a lot... but I'm starting to realize- it's not necessary to show myself that way. I've come to terms with "my own inner beauty", and now I see how many people actually find that... 'sexy'. O.o Trust me, even I have a hard time with that drawing. <3

WendyZ- Thank you soo much for your comment, I appreciate it greatly. As for the Picasso, I'm not familiar with that one, but I'll be sure to look it up.

Those are all nice. I really like the last angel- very light
I also love the first one, not only the art but the meaning behind the picture. That is a message that all young (and not so young) girls should hear.

meanderingartist- Heh, it wasn't actually that light when I made it- it ended up fading on my sisters wall. It was chalk on black construction paper... and thank you for your words on "Reflections", I strongly agree.
