Small Rant on Body Types by CanecaDePapel Small Rant on Body Types by CanecaDePapel
Well, that was awful.

I regret nothing.
Honestly, I'm just bored at most animes' casts! They all look the freaking same, derp.

A bit of variety would be nice, I guess.

I only covered adult women and men, maybe someday I'll do children too. C:

That's actually true. That's why I'm trying to draw more voluptuous women, and more sturdy guys. XD I get inspired by animes with different characters having different body types! I need a good reference for a woman with a chubby face, though! -_-

I adore you... do you know this... took me forever to find someone who drew different sized people. so aggravating. especially when you are trying to turn real life people from your fav tv show into cartoon characters. now i just need some one to really show me how to do this. D: *cries with joy*

You are amazing for this! the other body type drawings I've seen may show a variety of body types but yours feel like actual people. (especially the 5th IRL girl)

I love anime. But my god, I agree with you and love this for many years.

In my opinon, the big boobs and flat chested 10 year old looking 16 magic girls are the majorty of the anime girls. The "fat" girls in animes are comic relief and drawn ugly too. I'm not skinny or fat. But i will love a anime with a chubby girl to be pretty looking like everyone esle.

I guess body stereotypes are also deeply connected to society's view on gender roles.

It affects all over the world. In America, you will have to be skinny to be "happy" and success. Japan, be Sailor Moon that is 10 and men will fawn over you. It's all about society and gender roles.

SO MUCH YES.

I can't stand to watch much anime/read much manga any more because of this problem, as well as the cookie-cutter faces where you can barely tell them apart just because of their hair styles. If even that!

Thank you VERY much for making this mini-rant!

Why thank you, Bee. <:

This isn't even covering facial traits, nor personalities.
I'd spend ten more sheets of this just for those.
Maybe one day I will, trolololol.

Anyway, thank you for your kind words man, drop by anytime. :)

True, true :D
but! I once saw an anime with a fat girl, and I thought like: OMG! A fat chick! finally! I think it was nabari no ou. And there's this anime game for wii (some harvest moon knock-off) where you can date a fat chick, and she's so adorable! But then I got furious, because she gets thin and looks like all the other girls in the end >:(
And do you know the manga dorohedoro? I love that manga because of all the different body types appearing in it :D plus the story's awesome!
But, sadly, those are only exceptions, and 90% of all anime girls and boys have the same body types.
Ps: I love the one with the tiara. I want one too!

I know, those animes are always really scarce, but I'm not talking just about fat\chubby men and women, I'm talking about fit\strong women who never make cameos in most animes. :C

Aw, I don't think FemHeavy will give it to you, Chabs. D: FemDoctor gave it to her, and they're close friends. >:

I wish they'd make Dorohedoro an anime, because almost all women in there are strong and fit!!

MissChabre Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2011  Student
Well, there are two worlds in Dorohedoro: one where people live who cannot use magic, and one world with magic users. The protagonist, Kaiman, has been transfigured by a magic user (his head has been transformed into a reptile's head), and he can't remember anything that happened before that incident. He teams up with Nikaido (strong/fit woman numero uno) to find the magic user that transformed him.

It's really awesome, kinda gory, has a very unique style, and the woman there are tough :D

I read the first two chapters but meh;;; The story seems really confusing.

The gore is cool and the women are strong, though, that made me happy. :)

TimelessHearts Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2011  Student
mas tal como os animes, todas as pessoas que começaram a desenhar com isso (tal como eu) apanham essa fixação de corpos iguais.
Felizmente eu já comecei a mudar, mas é mais em termos da cara, eu distingo as minhas OC's pelo nariz e pelos olhos =3= mesmo assim ja tenho alguns corpinhos diferentes

Também para já só são quatro. Ainda tenho ideias fantasma sobre os outros mas preciso de pensar. >:
