Love Breaks (Fan Art Portfolio) Curvaceous

The first thing that came to mind when talking about "insecurities" was weight. It's something that's always been troubling. People are quick to judge those who are even a few pounds overweight as being lazy or having poor sense of control. I have to admit, I'm pretty insecure about such things, so I figured it would be easier to draw something that affects me to some degree. Also, this is not a picture of me, I'll get that out of the way right now.

Still, even though it seems to be an ideal to be incredibly tall and skinny, having a curvier body can be pretty as well. Besides being shapely, its healthier than starving yourself. Also, may cultures seem to take being a bit overweight as being attractive, since it translates to having money to afford food. Also, I guess its an indication of not suffering malnutrition. Which is a good thing.

Sorry if the pose seems contrived. I was going for having the arms out of the way so she seemed confident and not wanting to cover herself. Also, I was trying to convey curvy rather than obese since there's a point where it becomes unhealthy. Not being able to move due to weight is probably not the best...
