Unperfect - like me. 
Nobody is perfect - but if it does not make us wonderful?
Each of us is unique! When someone hurts you by nasty
comments, or criticizes what you do, how you dress, etc
... just do not listen to this. Know that you are special!

Love this, and the sentiment it is grounded in. Whatever has hurt her, she looks determined to rise above it, stronger than before.

I love the visual message portrayed here. It's very encouraging and also
empowering. The color scheme for the entire image really shares a sense of
something internal and organic, with a substance that radiates from the inside out.
Like when you hold your hand against the light from a light bulb, you can see this shade of reddish color
on your hand, and the effects is like seeing our life blood being activated internally. I love the slogan
on the art work that says "Keep it real" and the title of the image that says, "Just be who you are"
Indeed we all possess a unique quality to us that makes us special. The girl in this image appears to make her
self more comfortable as though in the process of removing the clothing. The clothes she's wearing and is in the process of
removing, may represent a certain style of clothing that doesn't define her. But more like she wore it to become something
she was clearly not. With tears in her eyes, there is a mix of determination, like in mid process, as she considers visually,
to simply just be herself. It's like catching her in the moment of making that transition of her most important decision.
The powerful organic color over the entire image reminded me of our blood we set our hands in front of the light.
This is overall a powerful image that is very well done. :)

Well that concludes my interpretation. Hope you enjoyed the read. ^^
Great conceptual art work once again. :)

I must say that I really admire your talent to interpret scenes and images.
I'm always touched when I see that someone is trying so carefully to describe
my illustration. Your discernment, moved not only the depth of the subject,
but also a soul which I put into it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart,
for such a beautiful description. I'm very ashamed that I answer you so late,
but I wanted to choose the best words to show how much I respect the fact
that so thoroughly analyzed the my work ;U; I'm really moved ;U;
Thank you so much my friend ;U; :hug:

Your very welcome. :iconohyoublushplz:
I'm always happy to give my support to a fellow artist.
It's what this community site mostly need around here.
Visual art, is filled with a spiritual investment of the artist's mind,
heart and soul that really comes to life, when ever I make visual contact with
an art work. There's just something profound about creativity, and it speaks as
an advocate of it's masters, in the same way the natural world around us confirms
the works of a great author and artist. Through the power of art, it bridges those connections,
in ways that could only be experienced. Interpretation helps me build that connecting bridge
to cross over into an internal world made manifest by the medias we have available here in the real world.
The alternate universes, I believe exist in many ways inside of us. Art challenges me to look beyond myself and into
another artist's world as a visitor, and as an adventurer to a new world. The connection is made, when our worlds,
find familiar ground somewhere in the middle, and everything else falls into place, creating a much clearer picture
to a new perspective. Or something like that. Hehe. Sweating a little... Like viewing the art world with an open mind, much like this funny colored eyeball
