Trans Masculinisation

and the lesser-known aspects being FTM

Stylised self-portrait/caricature of Anatolij, in blush pink and summer day’s sky blue. A slight turn to the viewer and a side-long gaze with a confident smile. Bare shoulders reveal developed muscles and muscular arms. Anatolij is bringing one of his hands back to brush back his hair, in a half ponytail, with a long fringe that parts to the side partially covering a sideburn. His eyeliner and shiba inu eyebrows are on point. Overlaying is a partially off-screen transgender symbol, painted with a rough brush, in pink, blue, and fluorescent purple between the two colours.
