This is a self-study I made after I broke out of an unhealthy relationship, where I lost almost all of my self-love and self-consciousness. I tried to get an intimate and unadulterated view of myself, so I put an iPad on the floor and photographed myself in the weirdest positions. Then I took these photos as my drawing references. While I was painting the motifs of my own body, I realized that I actually don’t look that bad. That I like what I see. Even in position where I normally would think I look like a freak, I somehow found beauty within my lines and figure. It made me proud because after everything I’ve been through, deep down I still loved myself.
