Big is Beautiful by ShugarSketch Big is Beautiful by ShugarSketch
Trying to experiment with drawing different body types.
I feel as though the squishy ladies are adorable and sadly underrepresented in art now a days.

Edit: It's unfortunate that there are so many hateful comments on my work simply because of her weight and that I'm trying to put forth a positive view of a heavier girl. Bigger doesn't always mean unhealthy, that is a misconception that many of you are using to further push your prejudices.

As for people saying her breasts are too large and that it's impossible, I have many chubby female friends that have huge chests and have to deal with people telling them that it's too much or that it looks unattractive. I drew this with them in mind.

She looks like a girl I went out with in late 70s.
Lot of very pleasant erotic sexual memories with her. VERY obliging. What could be done etc.....why the hell do we part company ? My fault.

Nobody appreciates big girls anymore... Its all about getting slim. Well, to ALL of the skinny girls out there, go to McDonalds. And to ALL of the men, rejoice, for fat is here.

I drew my first official chub girl yesterday.
It was more of a self portrait, and I used it as my dA ID...
After seeing it completely finished, I had the realization that drawing chub girls was actually really fun xD
You think theres any chub girl clubs?

this is so cute :D and for the record i'm about this size (with slightly smaller boobs) and I exercise everyday and eat really healthy. I love trolling concern trolls with ACTUAL nutrition knowledge from ACTUAL nutritionists. Thanks for not letting that "obese is unhealthy" bs fly. Bro Bro probably is obese, or got dumped by an obese girl. All that sounded like self hate

There are some -really- rude people here. Women big, small, and in between, with small boobs, big boobs, no boobs, are -all- gorgeous.  And we don't need to be tearing each other down with talk about what a 'real' woman should look like

Before you open your mouth,  please think to yourself "why do i feel the need to control what someone else looks like?"

Your opinion is just like a dick: Just because you have one doesnt mean you should wave it around at people, certainly not if it's harmful or rude. 

Anyway This is gorgeous. I like the braces, and the size. It's not perfect but none of us are and that gives it an authenticity!

I hate it when people comment negatively on people's images.... not to mention when they insult people that are bigger. I would probably be thought to fall under the 'unhealthy fat'. And it hurts when people call me fat or whatever when in actuality I'm probably stronger than they ever have or will be. I can and WILL crush the assholes that call me fat. XDDD

I just wanna say I like this a lot and think it's nice.
I found it through that post on Tumblr about the negative comments
And I don't think this has anything to do with health at all?? I read more into it as a "fuck society" thing because society thinks nobody except skinny girls can be considered beautiful and this is fighting against that saying bigger girls can indeed be beautiful as well
And I love that message a lot and think this artwork is awesome. Keep up the good work.

Exactly. If everyone could just grow up a bit the world would be a much better place.
I mean, we all have opinions, but if it escalates to an argument, people should never keep being rude and fighting against someone.

You made a comment and are now being criticized for it because it's disrespectful. I am not obligated to respect your opinion, and calling me a white knight is known as an Ad homenem, unless you can refute the central point, don't debate.

Um? I understand when everyone has an opinion and all. But i'm with Sugar, If you see something you dislike you don't always have to comment and point that out. If she wanted to sketch that out fine it's what she wants to sketch. It's artwork and she can do what's she wants with it. And "unhealthy"? I'm sorry I didn't know we were talking about a humen oh wait were not... Were talking about artwork. :I

""Hello,  whiteknight.

You too have not cared to use your mind on what I said before attempting to run to someone's "aod."
Again, I said that "unhealthy" depends on the reason for being big. I, myself am pretty big and trying to slim down more to be a healthy weight, since I a at risk of being obese.  I also know someone who is fat because of a mental illness they have, and a teacher I know is big because she just happens to have big bones and is a mesomorph.

Try thinking before replying to someone's comment. This is a public art site: no one needs to keep their opinions to themselves, and if this person did not want any "mean" comments, she should have either not submitted anything or dsabled the comment section.

Also, blocking someone right after sending them a comment is a very immature thing to do and proves just how ignorant and scared you possibly were before commenting.""

I said her picture was good after stating that people are not always fat because they are unhealthy unless it is for a certain reason, such as constant gluttany.

Look I know everyone has an opinion. But as I was saying you don't have to use it. But you have to accept other people's opinions too. You can't just go around and tell someone that there ignorant because they don't agree with you. Or immature, Maybe you got blocked because you were being a wee bit rude about it. If your going to have an opinion you need to respect everyone else's. Get what i'm saying?

I said she was ignorant because she was telling me I was pathetic and immature unless I agreed with her. I respect her opinions, but being a big person, and her saying mean things about and to me sounds a bit hypacritical...I even noted her before the arguement that I respected her opinions.
I think you misread the reasons I said anything, here...I said fat CAN be unhealthy, but doesn't mean unhealthy; and she exploded on me like an angry ape.

And why did you need to make a picture on a public site if you were going to get upset about bad comments?
Maybe you should disable the comment section of the picture to avoid it if you don't like people sharing their personal opinions so much. Just a suggestion..
You share your opinion on something, and others, inclueding me, will share theirs. If you think everyone should agree with you and not express it if they disagree, that is just not fair at all.

Also, I felt the need to make the comment because it came to me. This is a public art site, after all: you will get comments you like and comments you don't like. It is DA as well as life.
I myself a not a skinny-twig girl and am in a family full of big people. I have mixed feelings about fatness but it really depends on the reason.

For example, if someone has an eating disorder or some sort of illness or the natural body shape that is big, I have no problem with that.

But if someone is hoarding down foods and being a greedy pig 24/7, then it bothers me. Get the deal?

I like how you think your opinion on what kind of fat is acceptable is important to me, enough that you'd spend time typing it out.
No one cares about your personal feelings on body sizes, especially not me.
I'm commenting to let you know that you shouldn't feel entitled to go around telling people when it is or isn't okay to be a certain size.

A suggestion before I go: try being an actually mature person and accepting the fact people can say and think things that you do not agree with.
Also, jumping to conclusions is never the way to go, really.

You can say whatever you like, generally speaking.  You are totally allowed to do by the site; you just can't expect to be listened to, respected or not called an ass.  And sometimes, even when you can give your opinion, it is the better part of valor not to

No one is saying you can't comment about a person's weight; they're saying that sometimes it's better to keep rude, hurtful or simply asinine observations to yourself.  They are, in effect, saying that though you can do something, it does not mean you should do that thing.

Excuse me, but might I just ask why you're being so mean to Ainimalia? After all, she did say the picture was good, she was also just stating an opinion, which, by the way, we are aloud to do on this site. I don't see why you would have to start all this. If you didn't like her comment, could you not have just simply clicked the 'hide comment' button? After all that is what it's there for. and she did say it depends on the reasoning for being a bigger person, like for instance, if they have medical issues, it is perfectly fine, however, if they just eat all day and don't do anything to loose weight, it is not all right, which is what I believe Ainimalia was trying to say in the first place.

I stopped replying to them forever ago after they blocked me. They come here calling me immature and all this nonsense then after they get the last word and block me they come on another account to continue harassing me then copy and paste the same rude message to everyone who replied.
But I'm so mean. lol.
