Beauty by TroyBlue Beauty by TroyBlue
This is yet another pen and ink project. It is based on a figure I saw in a dream.

I wanted to portray the image of beauty that so many women strive to become--shattered, in the mirror.
What the figure represents is the result of self-loathing and the constant torture that so many women around us endure.
It is what their bodies come to look like after their irrational physical conditioning to become what our society has come to call "Beauty", thus the title.
You'll also notice the slit wrist...this was my attempt at emphasizing the sadness and depression that accompanies a woman's inability to become an image of perfection that cannot be acheived.

I hope you guys can appreciate the meaning as well as the art. =)

truly heart-breaking, but it was the aim of your work. Your idea to represent the madness and the dangereousness of the pursuit of the absolute beauty is, in itself, beautiful.
