I’ve been thinking of what to draw next. What can help me get back in the groove of drawing for THIS blog.
I like pushing myself to do different styles and I have this idea to focus on details and realism. The details of a fat body. Rolls. Stretch marks. Cellulite, chubby fingers, etc.
Things that people generally don’t want to be hyper visible.
I am asking for submissions for close up shots of YOUR fat bodies so I can take inspiration from so I can get this series kicked off the ground.
Camera quality must be at least moderately good. Nothing blurry or too dark. This project is about showcasing our bodies as close ups.
Anyways, I can’t wait to see some of the submissions.
Nudity is allowed as long as you are 18+. Nothing sexualized. This is just about our bodies.
hi, i’m kate, i’m 16 and i’m a uk20.
i have just started this body confidence blog and would love it if someone of you would come and follow me and submit, my blog is inspired by similar blogs to this one and is to celebrate the famale figure.
also if anyone has any suggestions of any similar blogs that i can follow please send me a message.
i’m always here to talk to, don’t be shy :)
Just a little doodle/self portrait I drew. I always struggle with my belly, but I realized that I love it, and that I should draw it. :)
I think to be body positive is not just about respecting bodies and how they look, but to respect other’s decisions regarding their bodies too.
Including weightloss and plastic surgery.
While I try to keep this blog weightloss and diet talk free, I understand that every body is different and it’s harder for many others to love their body. There are other fat people who experience different levels of fat discrimination. I don’t know what it’s like to live in the body of a size 28 (US sizes). While I frown at the idea of losing weight because I’ve learned to accept my size, it’s not as easy as others who are in a vice grip struggling with their ED’s.
But, I also don’t know what it’s like to live with a physical/visible disability. I don’t know what it’s like to struggle with dysphoria because I am cisgender (edit: not to say all trans folk struggle with it). I don’t know what it’s like to walk through a world as a person of color and be told that “fair” skin is the prettiest on every media outlet. I am extremely privileged to live in a world that stops at my size.
If this body positive community expects people to start a journey towards peace with their bodies, support and understanding must be given. Understanding AND respect for the unique and individual struggles other’s are faced with. Body acceptance is not cookie cutter. No one is the same. Each journey is personal and ripe with different bodies and the experiences that go with living in those bodies in a world that doesn’t just stop at size discrimination.
I think the body positive community forgets that last part. When it comes to our bodies, the world doesn’t just stop at size discrimination. I think we need more compassion and I don’t think being more compassionate is going to take away from our messages to love and/or accept our bodies.
