PastelMorgue is super awesome but has been getting some really horrible anons lately so I whipped this up for her quickly…
If you know me, you’ll know that I have a lot of trouble drawing humans… x_x I hope this isn’t too terrible!
(I hope she likes it?? I’m actually really nervous omg)
THIS IS THE BEST THING TO WAKE UP YO EVER OH MY GOSH. You are so so sweet and incredibly talented!! Thank you so much!!
You drew her as a skinny person. She is fat, though. Why not draw her as she actually is?
Hey, so I don’t know if you’re being serious, but I thought I should address this.
First of all, I wasn’t looking for critique. If I was, I would have said so in my description.
Second, you may have noticed that I mentioned that I don’t draw humans very often. I really don’t. I decided to go with the anime style I default to when not drawing My Little Pony or Pokemon.
If you’re familiar withe the anime aesthetic, you’ll notice there aren’t a lot of fat people who are portrayed as attractive. This is something I would love to see changed, especially as someone who is plus-size myself! I would love to see more size diversity (and diversity in general!) in anime, but that’s beside the point. I am an artist who hardly ever draws humans and honestly did my best with this piece. I did round out her face quite a bit more than I usually would; this is not how I personally would draw a “skinny person”. I think I did a decent job of capturing the spirit of someone I’ve never met in person.
Also, I know Aimee has used the word “fat” to describe herself, and more power to her! I don’t have the bravery to do so, as I don’t have the self-confidence she does to reclaim it yet. Her body positivity is a great example and I wasn’t trying to diminish that in any way; it comes down to my skills as an artist.
Still, your ask comes off as a bit harsh; again, I don’t know if you’re trolling or just brusque. I was trying to do something nice for someone on the internet who was getting hate for no reason; I really don’t see how your comment is productive.
