I'm kinda new here, and far from being a professional anything, in photography, drawing, cartooning, any of it. I am a somewhat amateur of a photography. Mostly I'm here to enjoy seeing beautiful visual creations. With that said, I basically have an "open" comment/question. Are we here to view, appreciate, post, learn, teach, and enjoy this visual art, or to measure our degree of personal lust for the subject of said art?
I just think it's silly that you made this comment. The last thing the model wants to here is "oh hey, you're too skinny, eat a sammich" Some people are skinny, Others are chunky. No one really wants to hear "you should eat more, you should eat less". She looks healthy. You wouldn't say to a chunkier model "hey less food next time" would you?
No, but that's simply because of society's tendency to care and appreciate fat people and say they have a condition or whatever, and do none of that to skinny people. In my opinion, it's disrespect of your own body in either case (unless it's a health problem) and they should be treated the same. If you eat too much cake, you get fat. It's not any external force acting on you. The same is with skinny people. If you eat too little, you get skinny.
In my opinion, people should have the self-discipline and self-respect to care for themselves either way. Unfortunately, that's not what society thinks, and thus, I cannot make a comment like that without hugely offending people, and being screamed at.
One question: What do skinny people think when people make comments like that? Is it really that huge of a deal? Are they not flattered that they've achieved what they want, trying to be skinny?
For skinny people, I think its a combination of having a body that's "supposedly desirable" by society's standards and someone not thinking that's good enough. Comments like that make skinny people thing "well jaaaaysus, I'm thin. I've worked hard to be this way. I watch what I eat, I exercise, I'm healthy about my body and you are still not happy with me" I'm just not convinced the comment needs to be made. I try and go with my rule of if it's not nice, don't say anything at all.
My girlfriend's a Japanese ballerina. She looks like what most people call "a skinny 14 year old boy." Personally, I find it attractive. I'm skinny myself and so was my ex. We all live very healthy. I was a vegetarian for a few years but even now I can eat a steak and I stay skinny. I do a lot of sports (just not weight lifting) and I can assure you I live healthy. I guess I don't have to tell you how fit my ballerina is. The only difference is that when I go to McDonald's I order my menu without ketchup and with water and I generally eat far less sweets and avoid potato chips.
And as you can see, there are more people commenting on how good she looks. If you like your girls fat then good for you, but don't force it onto others and make false claims.
I think chunkier girls are just as sexy as fit thin girls. Its sort of a "to each their own" in terms of what you personally desire in women, but I don't think making negative comments about someone's appearence is really necessary. I highly doubt a bunch of internet comments on devart would really influence how someone feels about their body enough for them to change how they are. I feel like the point of DevArt is to provide feedback about the posted art, not really how sexy the model is or isn't according to the posters opinion.
Very nice. I think she should have put her legs a little closer together. She is so thin that her butt has lesser depth as it is and this pose brings out her hips plainly making her look malnourished. Other then that this is very beautiful.
