:heart: My OC Apadine

IMPORTANT: Yup, of course, she's not really fat. Just a little chubby. She almost looks "normal" but I'm just not used to draw girls who are not extremely thin. Even though, just a little more weight is enough for people to say the sentences in the background!)

Well, in the last months I've spent a lot of time on thinking about all this anorexia-problem lots of young girls have. I've been reading storys, doujinshis, real-life-texts... I've been talking to people who keep discouraging themselves because they think they're too fat and ugly and nobody likes them. For some of them it seems to be the only solution to starve themselves almost to death and if they eat anything at all, this food needs to get out the same way it got into the body shortly after.
I feel like I can't take this anymore. It makes me sad to hear this, read this, talk to people about it and so I made a little drawing. At first I just wanted to draw my OC Apadine again, since I decided to make her a little chubby so the proportions don't look too weird with her big breasts. Now with this chubbyness her design looks better and somehow she seems to get more self-confidence because of something that usually discourages many people in her situation.

Then I thought it was about time to make a stand.
Voices in the background: "Nobody would ever love a girl as fat as you" - "You have to loose weight because you're too damn fat!" - "Every girl is always prettier than you'll ever be!" - "Stop eating! Stop eating! Stop eating! Stop eating!" - "you're not what society wants you to be" - "Just look at the mirror! You're ugly and so damn fucking worthless."

But Apadine doesn't care. As you see, you only need to start feeling confident about your body. It's like she said: "Sorry, but I don't care. Call me what you want, but I like my body."

Dieses Bild finde ich eigentlich traurig, aber es illustriert gut das Problem, wie die meisten in unserer Gesellschaft gegenüber Übergewicht stehen. Ich finde est aber interessant, dass du solche Probleme in deine Bilder einbaust, das bringt dann auch manche zum Nachdenken und das ist toll, besonders weil dein OC sagt, dass die Kommentare sie kalt lassen.
Wie immer sind deine Haare perfekt, diese Lila-Töne geben dem ganzen noch ein besonderes Etwa! ♥

Ich fange immer an, zu lächeln, wenn ich Kommentare von dir lese.
Du schaffst es auf eine erstaunliche Art und Weise, mir Mut, Kraft und Inspiration zu geben, sodass ich gleich Lust habe, sofort das nächste Bild zu zeichnen. Vielen Dank! :heart:
Das Thema Magersucht hat mich in der letzten Zeit so stark beschäftigt, ich brauchte einfach eine Bild mit einem Chara, der Stellung dazu bezieht und mit Selbstbewusstsein dazu steht, wie sie aussieht. *-*

Oh, dann freut es mich wirklich sehr, dass meine Kommentare dich dermassen motivieren!
Wie bist du eigentlich auf die Idee der Magersucht gekommen? Einfach so, oder hast du einen Artikel darüber gelesen oder so?
Aber die Art und Weise wie du das in deinem Bild eingebaut hast ist richtig gut geworden! :D

Naja, ich habe viel derartiges indirekt mitbekommen. Freunde und Bekannte von mir sind teilweise so unzufrieden mit sich, dass sie am Liebsten gar nichts mehr essen würden - und dazu ist das Ganze zur Zeit auch noch Thema in einer Serie, die ich jeden Tag gucke und in einem RPG, in dem ich mitmache - so langsam scheint es beinahe ein Trend zu sein und das ist absolut schockierend >_<

I really, really love her design ^^ She's very cute, and I do appreciate the attention to how her underwear pulls in on her skin, the way her breasts hang, the mass of her thighs. ^^ I think her jawline should look a bit softer, rounder, with the weight she has elsewhere on her body, but she really is super cute!

Thank you so much for the Comment, it means a lot to me!
It's still hard for me to draw her that way but I'll do my best to make it even better next time. The idea with the rounder face is a great one, I think. I'll see what I can do, when I draw her again, soon!

MukatKiKaarn Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You're very welcome! ^^ But yeah, aside from that change to her face, I think you've drawn her quite nicely, and I would absolutely love to see you draw more of her. I'd want to draw her myself, but I'd probably just end up drawing something fetishy with her and I don't know if you'd be comfortable with that or not. ^^; I just like the idea of curling up inside a cute girl's belly...

In all seriousness, I really do love her design, and I will definitely have to be sure to follow your gallery to keep an eye out for more of her!

Just one fact: I love pictures of my OCs more than anything! :heart:
I don't have problem with fetish-stuff, I mean there are only two things I never wanna see with my OCs, everything else is 100% awesome! I don't think that anything could shock me xD
(The two most-disliked things in the world would be: My OCs as these strange MyLittlePony-Ponys & Yaoi-Stuff with my male OCs - really, I would jump off a bridge if I'd see stuff like that >___<)

Alrighty then ^^ I'll be sure to link you to the picture when it's done!

While I do like yaoi, and drawing it, I'm pretty meh about ponies. I have a pony OC, mainly to draw with other people's characters, but I rarely draw her. But I just thought I would make sure before I drew anything vorish that involved Apadine... I didn't want to draw anything that might make you uncomfortable. ^^;

There are lots of things I never tried to draw and I probably will never try but I still think they're really interesting to see. Vore is one of these topics^^ I definitely wouldn't feel uncompfortable when seing my OCs in pictures like that^^

Well, alright then! ^^ I hope I won't disappoint... I don't know when I'll get around to drawing a picture of her, as I do owe a few other people drawings as well, but I will definitely let you know when her picture is finished.

A good message, but it might be more relevant if she was drawn with a rounder face and smaller bust, as the image is still very much an idealized view of male desire. Just my opinion, of course.

Elythe Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Yup, you're right concerning the rounder face. I'll see what I can do next time. But about the breast-size - well, Apadine is my OC since 2008 and one of the main design-aspects were the extremely oversized boobs which were a problem for her for a longer time, too.
If I would have drawn a random girl for this theme she would definitely have had smaller breasts^^

Yupyup, sometimes I think more than 80% of all people don't like at least something about their body, but everyone should just start to see that nobody's perfect and differences and also the aspects one doesn't like make people unique and lovable ^-^

Schönes Bild mit einer ernsten Botschaft, die sich hoffentlich einige zu Herzen nehmen werden. Nicht nur die, die selbst unter Magersucht oder ähnlichem leiden, sondern auch die, die andere aufgrund ihres Aussehens beleidigen.

Muss ich mir dann mal merken, wenn ich sie das nächste mal zeichnen sollte. Bei mir wird sie immer recht dünn. Aber ich habe ja vorher auch noch nie wirklich dickere Menschen gezeichnet.

Das ist auch so der Grund gewesen, weshalb ich mit Facepalm am Lappy saß, als mir auffiel, dass meine Mädels alle dürr wie Fotomodels sind ._.
Ist ja kein Wunder, wenn man mit ein paar Kilos mehr gleich Komplexe kriegt, wenn nicht nur in der Werbung, in Filmen, in Serien und in Zeitschriften, sondern auch noch auf bergeweise Mangastil-Bildern alle Mädels zu Untergewicht neigen >_>

Also wie schon gesagt, sie sieht sehr natürlich aus mit ihren mini Plösterchen, vor allem passt es gut zu ihren großen Brüsten. Ich finde die Haare hast du sehr schön coloriert und ich mag ihren Blick total *3* Der sieht so süß nach nem leicht unsicherem 'Ach lasst mich doch in Ruhe' aus, was das Bild ja letztlich auch darstellen soll, was durch die Sprechblase und den Sätzen im Hintergrund ja nochma deutlich gemacht wird.

Sehr gute Arbeit *thumb up*
