I like this very much! Even though you said it only took 3 minutes, it is very true and relatable.. You ARE beautiful, and don't let anyone let you think otherwise. :)

I moved here when I was in fourth grade and have been here ever since. It's great to know that my work is impacting people in ways that a professional can't. :)

Hey, do you really live in Indonesia? Way cool! What's it like there - nothing specific, I'm not a stalker. I just think that's so neat, that we can be talking on this website when I'm in the U.S. and you're in Indonesia. Please don't think I'm an idiot for asking this, but do you speak English there? : )

It's fine. :) I do actually live in Indonesia, and I love it here. The school is small - very small. My class has three people in it so we're combined with the grade below us. It's an expat school, expats are people from other countries that live and work in a foreign country. We do speak English, but we also learn Bahasa - the Indonesian language. Thanks for asking, not many people actually approach me after finding out I live in Indonesia.

I really like this, it kind of points fun at societies ideals of beauty.

Number 1: you took the pic with a webcam, not something people generally do when promoting their looks.

Number 2: The words are small, and strangely placed, as if you really didn't care, but did have a point to get across.

Sadly, it isn't a woodcut (whatever that is), but everyone makes the mistake of misplaceing an article or artwork at one time or another.

I applaud you.

the reason you're getting ripped on for this is ' cause:

1) you didn't use the right camera (I know its supposed to show "untouched" or "natural" beauty, but it looks like its from a webcam)

2) the words weren't added in a professional looking manner

3) the poem, though short, needs a little more depth

its a great concept and all, and i applaud you on that, its just that the layout isn't exactly aesthically pleasing, but with a little work, you have the potential t... (more »)

I agree with all of those. Thanks for the constructive criticism. I did take it on a webcam and it was done in three minutes. Thank you again.

Yeah, don't feel bad about what scrib said, Durichick. Since you said "it was done in three minutes" i have a feeling you didn't really mean to make this a stellar photograph. But all the same, it looks good.

Thanks, it's nice to know someone appreciates something I do. I purposely didn't wear any makeup or anything to emphasize my point. So, it isn't me at my best ;)
