Colourful Beauty by Zindy Colourful Beauty by Zindy
A drawing from a few weeks back, I didn't get to upload till now.

I've gotten a few requests to do a shaped woman and it was nice to actually give it a go. I wanted her to have a beautiful strong face. So many girls and boys struggle with weight, sometimes it can feel like an endless battle.

Dedicated to everyone out there struggling with their weight.

Colourpencil, 29x21cm | 11x8"

Beautiful reference by :iconmeetmeatthelake2nite:

I love the thickness in her legs. :D I really like how you coloured the layers in her skirt too and how you did the gradient colouring in her hair. She's got a very lovely face as well.
JannaFairyArt Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist

PearlWingz Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2011
I just wanted to say this picture is soo beautiful. The girl in it is incredible. I have to honestly say at first I didn't even notice her weight, and it still doesn't matter. The girl is just plain beautiful
El-Dudetta Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2011
Her hair is amazing, amongst other things! I cannot get over the masterful rendering you've achieved with those colour pencils.
Trinoc-nexus Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2011

Sexy but at the same time the left arm looks a little foreshortened. Then again, what do I know XD
renaissancelove Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011  Student General Artist
I love this piece, It seems more lively maybe because I see shaped women and men are beautiful either way. I find them more interesting to draw being a curvy girl myself. Thick girls and boys should be proud of how they look. They are full of beauty and give a different emotional attachment to art.
Soullessprincess Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011
gorgeous honey nice job
CatsaiMeow Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011
Big and BEAUTIFUL! I love it :-)

beautiful :)
FireFaerieTalia Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
okay, i'm going to be a bit controversial here.
i don't think it is okay for people to embrace being fat. but not because they aren't beautiful, but because it is unhealthy.
if they are struggling with their weight but still striving to become in shape and healthy, that is fine and i completely understand.
but what i do not agree with is people who are "big" and just sit there and try to be proud about it. there is nothing okay with being unhealthy. being of average weight and health is something to be proud of.
however, by no means am i suggesting fat people are less beautiful than thin people, i think beauty is not even relevant. being on either side of the scale isn't good.
i am not an advocate of stick-thin-ness either. why? because it isn't healthy!

this body is the only one you will ever have, and people should focus on their health rather than beauty.

i guess that last sentence sums up what i was trying to say. :J
ChibiChiSan Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2011
I'm just about her size, maybe a tad smaller. But it makes me feel a whole lot better about my struggle with weight, knowing that to some people being thin doesn't mean you're pretty. :) Love this piece so so much!
Taramaclay1 Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2011
Kinda looks like a SLIGHTLY chucky Lindsay Lohan. But still cute

Don't be an ass.
Veronika-Smirnova Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm not an ass but it seems that you re blind. This is not the normal human proportions, this is an ill body. When obesity had became an advantage?
bruuno117 Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011
Obese, you got to be fucking kidding, she is not even close.
Veronika-Smirnova Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Okay guys, just see this picture - [link]
The same author. That girl has normal figure. I don't know where you live but on my planet the girl from this pick have initial stage of obesity.
ShamelessWandering Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011
obesity? this is obese to you? perhaps i'm blind as well.
