Am I beautiful yet? by DigiAvalon Am I beautiful yet? by DigiAvalon
Am I beautiful yet?

If I change my cloths?
If I cut my hair?
If I alter my body?
If I look like her?
Tell me,

Am I beautiful yet?


This is my first piece of dark art, I believe, and its kind of more of a social commentary. There are girls out there who hurt themselves in the struggle for beauty. “Who are brought down by all the, you should be like this…” Attitudes. Some girls out there suffer from abuse and begin to believe that they are ugly, and worthless, and that’s not cool! So I wanted to capture that. I don’t know if I did a good job or not…

Bg maya, everything else Photoshop.

This is a very powerful statement and it evokes many emotions in me. You're doing great work, and I don't mean just the art.

Interesting. I like the proportions of the figure, and how really she was already beautiful to begin with.

That is truly a powerful comentary. Speaking as a woman who's been thrown to the curb several times by every one of my (ex) boyfriends, I've done a lot of things to make me 'look better'. Many times I've wondered 'If I looked like her... He'll want me back' And sadly, I still think it's true on some level. :hug: Anyway, it really is a beautiful piece. :+fav:

It's even worse when you're a very masculine male wanting to look like that model in the picture. A pair of scissors just isn't enough.

"If I look like her?"
I hate it when guys give pictures of different whores to their girlfriends saying. "She's perfect!"
..Mine does that and I hate it. Somehow I like being short, and I don't really give a fuck about being a bit on the flatchest side. Anyway, it's not something I can easily fix. The whole thing just gives me a bad mood and the desire to slice the damn bitch in the pic with a chainsaw.

Really great pic! I know exactly what you mean, since I feel like that myself. I must ask, is this a song, a poem or did you write it yourself?

Damn. That's really deep and amazing. It's so true that women, and even some men, hurt themselves all in the name of so-called "beauty", in which tabloids tell you that "fat", better known as curves, are horrible and people won't like you if you're like that, so it's best to be twig-like skinny and frail-looking.

Your piece inspired me. Nice job!

An amazing portrayal of the suffering of some diluded minds.
A silent cry, screaming for the acceptance of others.
But never heard.

An amazing piece.
All the best.

I found one odd thing though. The way she's holding the scizzors. I don't think my fingers can bend that way! DD: But it's all good. I'm just too picky with some details. :'(

so true... this is how i interpret it, it may be totally not what it was meant to be, but i'm strange, and i can live with that :D

this girl has been told all her life she's not beautiful, so one day she gets really frustrated and she slits her wrists and cuts her hair and does everything in this picture and she'se thinking "NOW AM I BEUTIFUL!!! JUST SHUT UP!!! SHUT UP!!!...

sorry if i freak u out... i'm just a bit weird lol :D

its more of even thoguht shes inmaating everything pop culture sees as beauty she still can no long see the beaty in herself, if you notice on the wall there is a littke drawing of a person she is trying to inmate and can't find any mental relife thought pain an contiunes to stugel to appear as she has been force fedd what is beauty.

That's a really strong message that you put on there. And I'll admit, *sigh* that I'm like that at times. I feel like that sometimes. It's strange to see it in art, but it puts the message out there more powerful than anything really.

Really? That's pretty surprising to me since I've looked at all your other art and it's very beautiful. I'm soooo jealous! I would draw, but I'm not confident enough, nor do I have the patience. So, instead, I write stuff. Of course I'm too scared to post it since it might not be good or whatever.
