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 :)

you should add that your drawing was maybe inspired by a NIKE ad campaign from 25 years ago that ran in British VOGUE, Rolling Stone, and other magazines.

You know, I don't want to sound like an ass, ah, fuck it, who cares, I'm not an asshole, but the L is just unhealthy, not saying it's not beautiful, but still, unhealthy.
Besides that a nice drawing you made, I just don't agree with the message this picture gives me, if it is the same message as the artist intented.

Sorry, are you a doctor?  That is not necessarily an unhealthy body weight, especially depending on her height. Whether its healthy depends on genetics and other factors involving the internal organs as well. But you wouldn't know that because apparently you have no medical background except your own personal opinions on what is healthy and what is not.  I suppose you think A is really healthy, even though she is extremely skinny.  That just may be too skinny for her...but yet you said nothing about the anorexic looking women in this picture. I tell you what.  Why don't you first get medical education then come back in a few years and try to say something that doesn't reveal how idiotic you really are. Ok?

1. I'm not a doctor, but I do have internet access.
2. maybe.
3. Correct, height does matter, but I assume that these people are supposed to be part of "healthy" people who don't have any rare disease which makes it "impossible " to lose or gain weight.
4. genetics have a part in obesity, but:

"Sequence variations within a pool of 56 different genes have been reported as being related to obesity phenotypes, however, only ten of those genes showed positive results in at least five different studies."
"
In brief, current knowledge brings to the conclusion that genetic factors may be involved in the etiology of obesity and, exclusive of very rare severe obesity cases, the genes involved are probably genes that interact with environment factors related to energy intake and expenditure to increase the risk of obesity."

5. Does someone need a medical background to know the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell?
6.You suppose, you assume, but at the end, you don't know what I think about "A"'s body type, but yeah I would put her somewhere close to being underweight, but maybe she just has an athletic body type.
7. You expect me now to study medicine, wow, halt. I may be Asian, but I'm no cliché. What are you? Some kind of racist? /s
8. Well, I'm not smart, but I wouldn't consider myself stupid/idiotic. I mean did I assume you are stupid or idiotic?
I don't know you, you don't know me, I don't know your education, you don't know mine.

But hey, today it's okay to assume everyone's intellect based on one comment which is to rows long :/

So you thought, "You know what sounds like a great idea? Going onto a post about positivity for women and saying 'but not this demographic in particular'. That definitely doesn't make me an asshole."

Accept your body if you want, but the examples I pointed at in the picture is something I can't say "This is normal and healthy."
it's not, okay?
I think since I'm myself overweight I can say that this body type is unhealthy.
I mean god damn. my body type is unhealthy.
Again, if you are fat, you can accept yourself as you are, but that doesn't change the fact you live a cleary unhealthy life if you don't have any medical conditions which make it harder for you to lose weight.

Good intentions, but the road to hell is paved with them. Women also come in many different ages, and don't need to go around in bra and panties to be beautiful. Also, an artist needs to be literate--"The Scarlet Letter" is something you obviously haven't read.

They are in bras and panties to show their bodys. Of course they don`t need to go around with them to be beautiful, but the bodys shapes are more visible if they are undressed, obviously. I don`t see what`s the problem with that. The author of the drawing isn`t objectifying womans, if that`s what you mean.

Can't believe some of these comments. All body types should be celebrated, no matter what your "preference" is because women don't need to meet your ridiculous expectations. We have skin, we have organs, and we definitely have some body fat. Being thin or being heavy is nothing to be ashamed of, as long as it doesn't make a negative impact on your health. Healthy bodies are greater than perfect bodies. We should never try to push people into what we think is "right" because it's a darn diverse world out there and if you think otherwise, you need to get with the program. Rant over.

I’m sorry to say, but there’s a line between unhealthy fat and unhealthy skinny. It’s not about preference, it’s about health; both are bad for you and can result in early death.

I think the problem is that many artists start out drawing their ideal woman and never get beyond that it. That's mostly in comics and cartoons. Western animation's more OK with showing a greater variety of women and even making them goofy at times

If you have belly fat spilling over your bikini (yep I'm looking at 'U'), then you are doing something wrong. There is a difference between being curvy and being a tub of lard. Never confuse the two. That being said, this is a quality drawing.

No fucking way. What a MIND-BLOWING statistical anomaly. Considering that there are only 8 body types (let's assume that they are equally common) and that 2.282% of girls born in 2010 (because let's face it you have the maturity of a six year old - oops five year old because you were born on September 5) have a name that starts with the letter T. That means you have a roughly .3% chance of this occurring. That seems slim at first, but consider that it's 3/1000 and millions of people visit deviantart.com every year (in fact it is the 182nd most popular domain name out of all domains on the entire internet). Do the math and lose your special snowflake mentality. You are a statistic and nothing more. 

Also, be consistent in your use of 'lol' / 'lel'. Pick one.
