wish I could be part of your world beautiful work! •adds to favorites• here's an interesting fact: the first anime astro boy, the eye designs were inspired by Disney eye designs (I don't know if you knew that already)
that's what i was trying to explain to defyingglory down there, was that from the perspective that i see, it looks as though she is fat. but defyingglory took it out of context and made a big deal about it.
yeah her face looks a bit round but that may be just from the effect used to make it look watery. Also her torso is a bit thick, maybe more realistic than ariel who was a freakin twig of a mermaid, probably only ate kelp
i always thought that maybe the reason disney princesses are thin or just the woman in general is because they had little money to afford food or because as a princess, you don't choose what you eat, the cooks chose for you and then there are all the eating rules and such. plus, tons of disney's women were hard working, like tianna. charlotte is a bit more chubbier that tianna is if you look close enough. i think ariel was a tig because she was always moving around and doing something and they do say that swimming helps loose weight. //shrugs
i like when they are thinner, it just looks right to me. xD at least in cartoons. i just don't know how to draw someone big. but we all have our own opinions, so there should be nothing wrong with that. xDD
Back in the real ages of princesses and such they ate alot, there were many chunky princesses, the ones who were thin were usually sick. Besides back then if you were chunky it meant your family was rich enough to afford food in large ammounts. It was fashionable to have a few extra pounds, the thin princesses were generally thought to be bad wives because they were frail or weak and had a 'poor' family because of her weight. And yeah i understand, if they werent thin they wouldnt be the princesses from our childhood, but i also think that watching these thin disney princesses hardwired the young female brian into thinking that girls are supposed to have these tiny,tiny torsos along with a large rack. It's kind of disturbing how true this is...lol...did i mention i like to rant alot? XD
i'm not the only one who commented against this picture you know, no need to be rude about my personal opinion because i'm use to my own being slimmer and thinner. and considering the actual ariel is considerably smaller at the waist, yes, fat. my opinion, not yours. i'm not a 'sad individual', it's called freedom of speech.
and it could just be from how i see the image. to me, it looks like the camera would be nearly right infront of her, basically looking straight at her. but it is where the camera is looking up at her apparently, and to me, it doesn't look like it. besides, it's not the only thing that is a bit messed up if you would look at the other comments. her hair and her face, do you just target the comments that you don't like the most? it's a bit childish isn't it?
