tumblr girl body

Stayed up ‘til 4 in the morning working on this bad boy– a submission to the Women’s March on Washington call for art. I’d love for it to be chosen, knowing my artwork is there, standing strong for women’s rights when I wasn’t able to (I WILL be at the sister march in Austin though!) I’m also aware, though, that I went a little crazy with the illustrative part and it may not make for a great political poster… oh well!

Mini and incomplete tutorial

I like to call this kind of body “anime fat” You see a lot of artists draw curvy or even what they call “chubby/fat” girls like this but it doesn’t…. even come close???? Fat does not just stay in the places where you think it’s attractive. Fat goes into arms, and the stomach etc. If you want to represent fat women in your comics, art, etc. then do it right, bc there isn’t enough positive representation out there.

Thigh gaps: Thigh gaps aren’t going to exist if your character is chubby or fat, it’s just not realistic to have wide thigh gaps

Big breasts/ass+ skinny eveywhere else: Fat girls can have big breasts and big behinds but not always. Fat people have different body shapes and each person’s fat goes to different places. So there will always be fat girls with small breasts and no ass

More than one chin: Fat people can have double chins it’s not an ugly thing and you should be able to draw it, it’s not that hard :)

Lastly, I don’t really care if you draw like the pic on the left, I’m just saying you should never consider that being fat. Also, as an artist who draws people you should always try to learn how to draw all sorts of people, not just the kind you find attractive; that’s how you really get better at drawing
