"Proud of your own lines"

Hand-drawn body portraits
your lines Every body is different, beautiful and normal

Is my body normal?

This is a question that concerns many women on a daily basis. Not surprising either, since a lot of unrealistic images are shown in the media and on the internet. As a result, many women are convinced that their bodies differ from what is normal and beautiful. The naked pencil wants to change that… How you might ask? I would like to tell you more about body portraiture.

About The naked pencil

"I started The naked pencil to contribute to a more positive self-image among women! By celebrating yourself and improving your relationship with your body. But not only that, I want to show a diversity of bodies and change the image of the unrealistic ideal of beauty."

The reasons why

There are many reasons why every woman should own a portrait of herself. Here you can read my five favorites:

Attention to detail

"Portrait of myself really exceeds all my expectations. The portrait hangs in my bedroom and I look at it every day. I feel very beautiful and proud to show my body! I feel very sexy because of the way Elsa draws me. Good friends also recognize my body immediately, which seems expressive. The portrait was delivered as a present! Elsa has a great eye for detail: both reflected in the portrait and the way she packs and sends the portrait. I can't wait for my next portrait!"
