I was recently criticized for not showing enough diversity in my artwork when it comes to the female figure :/ First and foremost let me just say that I think that women are some of the most powerful and amazing creatures in the world, truly! And while I will admit, I do LOVE drawing the "pear shaped" figure the most, I honestly love all shapes and sizes of the female figure. From average, to pear, to boyish, to curvy, to plus sized, to petite, to banana (whatever the hell that is :P) I honestly love them all, and i'd hate to think that anyone out there feels any different.

So thus-ly, I promise to start showing more diversity in my works :)

This is amazing and refreshing. It was appearantly posted last year, but that doesn't make it any less relevant now. The diversity in the body sizes is great, but also in the faces. There's also the more sensitive issue of diversity in bust sizes here, but I'm grateful to see that, since I'm not average like most women you see in real life/the media and it's nice to see something that looks like ME in a picture in that reguard. Also, it's in a picture that is just a picture and not something perverted. (Let's just say I'm both chubby and very opposite of flat-chested.  I aim to make myself healthier though, for my own sake.)

All that said, I have to agree with another comment that you should draw for you and not for others. However, your desire to please others produced something fantastic with a great, inspiring message! Thank you. Thank you so much.

Honestly, I think you can draw anything you want just the way you feel like doing it. Art is not about what everyone else tells you to do, itīs about expressing yourself the way you want to regardless of other peopleīs opinions. This peoplesī traumas and low self esteem is their problem...not yours. Keep up the good work and always be as free as you want, art is one of those few things that has never been controlled by others and it should always stay that way. :)

I think I'm more likely a B. I just wish I could see that in front of the mirror when I'm getting dressed for work and not only in front of the computer when I'm alone.
Oh, well.

It's a really nice drawing. Bet you really make the day of many girls with this beautiful opinion.
