scariest shit ever made
So I’ve seen a whole bunch of posts about body positivity. And it would be great, but they’re really bad at actually representing different body types; big girls in particular. So I’ve drawn a comparison.
I’m tired of seeing posts that totally miss the point. Those posts are supposed to make you feel good about your body. But it’s hard for bigger girls to feel good about themselves if they’re represented by women that aren’t big. Fat is okay. But here’s some things that people almost always ignore when drawing bigger ladies:
- Stretch marks
And some misconceptions/ common mistakes:
- Larger breasts ( a LOT larger)
- Wider hips
- Same size waist as girls with less body fat
I’m going to put it bluntly: I’m sick of seeing fatter girls be misrepresented. I’m tired of seeing posts getting glory for drawing bigger girls when they don’t. I have yet to see a body positivity post that shows cellulite, stretch marks, folds, and spillage. These things are real, and they’re beautiful.
So try and remember these things next time you try and represent fat girls. Because if you’re not thinking about the “ugly” stuff, you’re doing it wrong.
This is basically what I’ve been trying to do more with drawing these body types in general.
I get kind of upset when all those little details are left out but then again I just really like paying attention to detail and making my characters as close to someone you’d see in person as I can usually.

GLORIFY THE SHIT OUT OF THIS IMAGE
I had to. It’s so cute and I’ve had such a good day and I might be a little baked and I would like more of this in my world, please. I think the best kinds of art makes people see things around them a little differently. (I’m a sucker for whimsy.)
Lady Avengers! and Black Widow lmao
Based on the official poster with some tweaks (Bruce based on his individual poster). Thanks to everyone who came to the livestream!

Thought people might enjoy this if you haven’t seen it yet. :) I like seeing genderswaps like this because usually they are just of the “look how silly this guy looks in armor/poses that women are in”, and it’s a nice change seeing heroines looking awesome. :) Escher Girls readers tried to do this a while ago by putting Psylocke in “male” poses from comic books, but it didn’t really catch on. :\
Anyway, enjoy! :D
