Thisis a hard one to explain. I tried to take the theme on a differentapproach in this piece. I've tried so many things by doingphotomanipulations, retouching and so on to figure out this concept,but all failled. Maybe because the photo's where so hard to work with.So I had to improve a lot and had to forget about the usual stuff I do.
I'veremixed 3 concepts I had in mind actually while starting this piece andtried to blend them together in one piece. The fact is that no one isreally sure about theirself. But changing yourself wont solve yourproblem, you would actually lose your identity whenever you do that!Because you're not the real "you/me" anymore whenever you had a extrememake over or plastic surgery.
That's why I removed essentialparts of the body in this piece since you're not the person you used tobe anymore. This person, who is planning to build up a new identity forherself actually wants to give itsself more confidence by changing.
Thefact is that no one is perfect, but no one is satisfied with theirselfas well, could we solve that problem by having surgery or doingmakeovers? Shouldnt we just accept the way we are? Instead to theuseless name changes, makeovers and surgery who are actually ruiningour own identities?
Be glad about who and what you are.
Hope you guys digging this and hope the concept is clear! Good luck with the contest everyone!
Thispiece took me way to long and I actually didnt had time to finish itcompletely, since I wanted to do some more stuff on the background!
Wish me luck!
