Thank you very much for everything!
Have you noticed how in February there is a lot of talk about love and relationships, to love other people and show the beloved ones how much we love them and cherish them? There are a lot of things happening during this time of the year, and a lot of couples are probably already planning their wonderful V-Day, though, the point of this challenge is not to show love and affection to others.
The main goal in this challenge is to see OUR own beauty and give OURSELVES love that we deserve. To start love our bodies, personalities, strengths and weaknesses. To accept ourselves the way we are! A lot of you guys probably noticed how media creates this dreamy, almost unachievable looks, bodies, and lifestyles that instead of motivating us – depress us. Make us think that we’re not good enough, not skinny enough, not smart enough, not anything else enough. THAT’S WRONG! You should never EVER think this stupid thoughts that get you down. It’s time to rise up fellas! It’s time to start loving our own selfies!
I am an artist. I want to be the one at least. I want to create, draw and just be happy with what I am doing. Thus whole January I was thinking about special challenge, that’s not going to be too long, but also not too short. Something that will keep me busy for enough amount of time to keep drawing/practicing and won’t make me feel overwhelmed by the amount of days to come.
14 days seems completely fine… I think.
14 days filled with self-conscious passion and love. 14 days for travel inside our mind to understand ourselves even better, to learn new things about ourselves and to LOVE the way we were born.
Self-portraits are many times neglected and even avoided as many of us don’t want to draw their own face for many reasons. I, by the way, for many years hated my own appearance, but hey – that’s life – we learn stuff.
Challenge starts 1st February!
I’m going to post my artworks everyday on my deviantArt, tumblr, facebook and Instagram with hashtag #loveselfieportraits. I encourage you guys to also join the challenge and spread the selfie-love all over the world! ♥
Days Themes are pretty much self-explanatory + it’s always awesome to see different approaches of other artists.
