If I ever needed extra practice on shading the human form I need not look further for this wonderful lady is the definition of eye striking beauty. The light traces down her body perfectly, almost like is caressing her. The grey scale is a nice touch too. I don't know if it was an after though or was initially planned but well done.
Anorexia is an eating disorder that shouldn't be joked about.
I think she's airbrushed a fair bit, but regardless; She certainly isn't anorexic. Calling skinny/slim people anorexic is just as bad as calling overweight people tubby and making fun of them. Even if it doesn't seem like it, they know they're underweight most of the time, and most of the time they're also trying to do something about it. Not everybody can do anything about it, some people just can't put on weight. She looks fairly toned to me, so she probably goes to the gym or at least jogs.
Photography is art, regardless of it's subject. Sculpting is definitely art, right? But then look at that David statue-- That's a naked guy, so it can't possibly be art according to you, right? No, wrong. Photography is art just as much as sculpting is, and the subject doesn't change that. Grow up.
Since when has thin associated with anorexic? She looks fairly muscular. I wouldn't go around calling people anorexic just because they're thin, you'd hurt a lot of people that way.
I agree though, this is society's idea and expectation for women. This is what a lot of men look for in a woman. It's perfectly fine to be attracted to a woman who looks like this. A lot of men will be. It gets ridiculous when a man won't even give a woman a chance because she DOESN'T look like this. That's when I have a problem.
But come on, this woman is incredibly beautiful with a rockin' bod that she most likely worked for.
I don't mean to start anything. Most of your comments make sense and I agree with, but bringing anorexia into this bothered me.
Photography is considered an art form. Not all art is created from scratch with pencil and paper - the term "art" encompasses a large variety of mediums including drawings, paintings, photography and much more.
