Each and every girl is beautiful. But do you know where true beauty comes from? It glows from inside and it radiates through her eyes and her smile. So no matter your shape or size, embrace who you are and find happiness in what you can offer to this world.

Very pretty girls, and an inspirational message for everyone!  As I told a fellow deviant some time ago, true beauty comes from the inside.

I'm really loving the inspiring message to this image. It's so beautiful and so true. But I would love to see it also touch on things such as disabled people , physically and mentally( though I do know that latter is trickier to portray through drawing), girls that are physically scared from things like accidents or surgeries, and girls suffering from illness like cancer. This artwork, while still absolutely stunning, only deals with the 'mainstream' issues that most people think of with the term 'body shaming', that being body shape/size and ethnicity, but there a plenty other things aside from this that girls get body shamed over. I personally have had to deal with a big 5cm scare on my face that's pretty obvious while growing up. I hated it at first but now see it as part of who I am and love it. However I never or rarely ever see motivational images that help girls deal with things like scares.
I'm not hating on the artwork or the masterful mind behind it, I just feel it could be expanded upon. 
Well that's my 2 cents worth for the week, keep up the great work daekazu.

:iconrambitionkur0kku:
RambitionKur0kku Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
That may also be due to the fact that most bigger women do this by choice.
Also, the artist may have found drawing the larger woman's stomach to be hard, so she covered it as a way to assist in this issue.
Not to mention, while only one is bigger, only one is muscular, only one is the in between, one is more slim, and the other is a bit more just skinny in general.
I really don't see the point in pointing out the issues, when the message is overall meant with deeply good intentions. Either way the art has a good meaning, so it shouldn't matter either way.

this image could have used a LOT more variety instead of just giving the skinny broads different skin colors.

You're being so hypocritical it hurts...
I believe you're also missing the bigger picture, and the variety between each girl.
There are a lot more differences than the skin colors, so please don't throw them under one category.  Not to mention "skinny broads", really?  Now that's just insulting slang.  The artist here is trying to send a message that each individual is beautiful, no matter what body shape, size, or race you are.  You somehow missed this, and took it in a negative manner.
This is a lovely piece of artwork, and if you're not happy with it, then make your own version.

Speak for yourself.  I'm targeting your opinion in my entire comment haha.  You're argument is that the picture is lacking variety, and then you lump the "skinny broads" under one category, saying the only differences are the skin colors, and that there needs to be more "BBW".  I hear your opinion loud and clear, as well as your distaste for the artwork. 
I'm clearly not the only one here who has called you out on your biased comment,  and based on your last "sentence", I can tell you're upset.  You're body shamming without even realizing that you are (or maybe you're doing it purposely, I'm not sure), but the point is that you're being hypocritical on the matter.
It's okay though, I will forgive you for this one fault in your life and move on.

You're shocked at their ignorance? What ignorance? The only ignorant one here is you.  You're also clearly upset by their comment so I find it funny how you try to deny you're obvious annoyance.  You end your comment with "maybe get some brain cells while you're at it". Yeah. You're definitely not mad whatsoever. Did you even read their comments? Clearly not, otherwise you would understand where they're coming from and why they're calling you out.  They're trying to defend the picture and say everyone is beautiful, while you're just starting a flame war and remaining narrow minded.

They have different body types. You're telling me having muscles is "skinny"? This is why it's not a compliment: you're ignoring the variations in the body types because they aren't obese. You're lumping them all together under a single body type simply because they aren't fat. That is what Telumindel means about "body shaming." You actually said: "just giving the skinny broads different skin colors". You honestly are saying they all look the same to you, they're just interchangeable if it wasn't for their skin tone.

That's awful. This is what I hate about the "body acceptance" movement: you only accept people with bodies like your own. It's just prejudiced crap.

Lumping people together and saying they all look the same is not a "compliment", so don't pretend that you were complimenting anyone.

hey, you're right, what do I know? only that I've been judged my entire life based on my weight, by skinny, thinner, smaller, even healthier (hey use whatever adjective makes you feel more "politically correct", I don't care honey) individuals. so indeed, I guess I have no authority to call this for what it is, and that's completely unimaginative, hiding the one overweight/obese woman in the back round, like everybody else does.

if you haven't been living under a rock for the past couple centuries, I think you'd notice how overweight individuals get treated FAR worse then smaller individuals, so don't give me this "prejudiced crap"shit when *I* say they DO all look the same, they DO all look skinny. in the grand scheme of things, that comment is nothing compared the truly severe insults and cruelty I and other overweight individuals have endured. 

the fact of the matter is, these particular figures DO look all the same, except for ONE of them.. so when the artist tries to make a statement of "oh yes, everyone is beautiful", does he really mean it? when only one of them is actually different then the others? I beg to differ.

Except the others are different from each other, in subtle ways. Notice the muscles on the African-American (I'm assuming) girl? Notice how the girl in green has a less curvy body than the girls in yellow and blue? And saying "skinny broads" has negative connotations because of the word choice, not because of what the words mean. Those words carry condescending connotations. If that was an honest mistake in word choice, it's forgiven.

Oh, and maybe you should disable comments on how people are talking about obesity because of the blonde lady. I mean, c'mon: this should be about girls being themselves, not about size and outward appearances, just like how your message points out. There's no need for any arguments on obesity or illnesses; this isn't what the artwork and message is about.
