Beauty? by TheDarkRayne Beauty? by TheDarkRayne
Beauty?
They have an idea of 'beauty'. They, the society. What is beauty anyway? Who is beautiful anyway? Is it the sparkling skin or the 'perfectly toned' body? What is perfect anyway? They all are born as tiny babies, they all die and turn to ashes. The idea of 'beauty' is nothing but currency of the superficial. To all those who get picked on for their appearance in anyway, remember this, their idea of perfection is an illusion. What is deep down in your heart is way more important than what's on the surface. Do not let anyone tell you otherwise. People who care more about how you look on the outside instead of respecting you for who you are are nothing but a sad lot indeed who would turn into dust in their wanderlust of perfection.
No, I don't support obesity but I support non-conformity.

A beautiful picture that reminds us what beauty really is. The pictures behind her show what socity beauty is all about, but the girl herself is really quite lovly, even if she doesn't fit socity's standerds. I love this and hope this becomes a trend in art work. Beauty within.
This artist and all helping did a wonderful job on this piece. As a social reject I really hope and beleave that socity can change, lets just hope it does it for the better. Over all I give this 4 stars. Please contue to do art with messages, the world needs it.

She is. Why not? Instead the girl in the right portrait looks like a corpse to me...

this is so beautiful, the artwork and the detail, but the message it sends, the emotions and feelings of despair and low self confidence, its sad but yet real and you cannot help but feel sorry and feel ashamed at the same time for this is how many women feel. i think you did an excellent job, both with content and the artwork itself, this is really beautiful :)

It is hard to give an opinion about beauty without hurting..artists use the theme of beauty everywhere...they understand it...there is lot of hypocrisy around in the world regarding what is beautiful and what is not...but like most things beauty is also a relative factor..basically...
