Whilst I’m drawing a new character I keep having to remind myself that women can be as ripped as they fucking want and it’s still gorgeous, that ‘thick’ bodies that *ACTUALLY HAVE FAT ON THEM* are ok, and fight off the urge to thin/tone down her muscles and overall shape.
No. No, bad! Bad learned body image ideals. Ave is showing of her gorgeously ripped arms and realistic midsection in an off-the-shoulder dress with a side split beside her fuckin’ biomecanical girlfriend and I love it.
THE PATRIARCHY WILL BURN IN FLAMES FOR EACH TIME I DENY IT THE RIGHT TO RULE MY CHARACTERS AND THEIR BODIES.
