Self Portrait (Why I'll Never Have a Girlfriend)

Postby Gothic1988 » Fri May 31, 2013 8:01 pm

Here's a self portrait I did of.... myself..... I'm available ladies. I'm a nice, respectful person. Sure, I may be horribly ugly and grotesque, and not wealthy, but I'm sure something like that doesn't matter to you. I'm sure women are looking for nice guys who will treat them like the Princesses they are, and not just thinking about appearance and wealth... right?

I like drawing characters, so this is some character design work based on me.

Nope. Beauty is made up of having traits that are beautiful.

It is good work. And for the concept, well more people should realize no one is overweight because they want to be. Don't condemn yourself either, I mean, if you decide you will never have a girlfriend then that is exactly what will happen.

Hmmm, all good points - I'm gonna steal 'Nomad's' critique
and say that this has a surface appeal and charm but for a sensitive
subject I would go for a more 'sensitive' look. Thank You, E

I've never decided that I will never have a girlfriend. I've realized that I will never have a girlfriend. This comes from not only my physical appearance (not just me being disgustingly fat, but also my face being misshapen and grotesque), but also from an understand of what a woman wants in a guy. That being, lots of money, and an "I don't care at all about you, I just want to have sex with you and completely disregard everything else about you," attitude towards women. I can't offer any of that. All I can offer is care, kindness and respect, but that stuff doesn't matter.

About the "sensitiveness" of it. It's not really a sensitive issue. I like cartoons, and this is just meant to be a portrait of me as a cartoon.

Gothic, I'll let you in on a lil' secret - many, many people out there who
are not in relationships and they're quite happy. Who cares about the
sex and money if you and another person(s) have a meeting of the minds?
Rock on, Dude.

I will skip the discussion about love and beauty, etc. and get to the art. This is a very well done piece - very professionally done.

all the best,
Joe
