A Note on Self Portraits by jollyjack A Note on Self Portraits by jollyjack
There is something utterly lonely about a person that fills their gallery with nothing but photos of themselves, taken with their own hand.
Iíve stumbled upon more than a few!
Why waste precious online space doing that? Theyíre never going to be good shots. And in the off chance that they ARE, that does nothing but imply that you have freakishly long arms!
Quit it!
Go outside!
Take some landscape shots!
Snap some kittens!
Shoot some architecture!
Anything other than you, sat in your living room with your arm, deformed by the lens, snaking toward the edge of the image.

It is definitely not always working, but you're kidding, right?

Online space isn't exactly precious! I agree dA isn't the place for selfies, but they're still good for your self esteem, and they're not hurting anyone!

Looking back to this image, and cringing at back then how I took my own selfie many years ago, the activity of "selfies" has rather rose dramatically.

Do you think it's time you made a new version of this?

I don't think the term "selfie" had been coined/was as widely used when I took this :D
The message is still the same, though. Making another would be kinda pointless.

I actually don't completely agree on you on this one. Sure, it would be kind of sad if someone had like hundreds of only selfies but I think it can be good in moderation.
 Many people, especially teenagers which I think is the one's who does this the most, have very bad self esteem and think they're ugly because of media, bulling etc. But taking selfies when you feel pretty, happy or almost any time really, can help the person see that she/he/it is beautiful, or at least maybe see how models can look ten times better depended on the lightning and perspective. 

If you've read so far I would like to say that I'm not that interested in your boobdrawings but the comics when you're a hamster or pictures like this makes me laugh like mad! XD Keep the good work going and thanks for reading :3
