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.

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

There's a difference between drawing porn for money and taking selfies for the sake of taking them. Besides, most of us are fans of his Sequential Art comic, not the porn he draws.

people do what they wanna do. if they enjoy it then why hate on it? mind your own bussiness. who cares if a picture or 2 while your scrolling is some chick taking a selfie? just dont click on it. This is selfish and childish. also, your ugly. peace.

you would be right but the majority of those who take these kind of pics are self absorbed, foul mouth, idiotic dipsh#ts who flood the internet with these images, idiotic and pointless posts and pathetic attention grasping images of them self's, i know of and have seen to many to know that.

Yeah you're so right about this! :nod: There is something really sad about galleries like that, it's a waste of space yes....Plus, people don't want to see a gallery full of bad photos of someone taken with the cellphone. It was so right what you say, that they should go and take landscapes, architecture or something other than selfshots!
That's why I take natura photos :D And draw art :D And I take photos of anything but less a selfshot like that *chuckles*

This is a fair point but you can also put your camera on a timer, that gives you time to walk away and get into place. I take mostly self portraits and I'm pretty proud of them, it's just another way to express myself.
