Okay, so I know I'm probably gonna get a little bit of guff for making Violet look so sickly, but please hear me out. This picture was done only to emphasize her thinness. Truth is, her proportions are supposed to be the same as in the movie. As some of you who are on PP may've heard me say, I do have a small story based on Violet having Anorexia (still need to finish rewriting that......). So I wanted to do a picture bringing out how skinny she is, without changing her. I draped her T-shirt to emphasize her ribs, but not show them, and used baggy pants to set it off. I also practiced shading balancing in this, to not draw too much attention to any one part of the picture. Some constructive criticism would be great on this piece, please!

This is beautifully done.

Also, changing the subject slightly, she looks like Violet from "The Incredibles"

I had to watch it with my sister the other day, that's how I remember her name.

Boi!!!!!!!!

Yeah sometimes when I see certain movies and see characters appearing like super thin or stick thin I'm always thinking that is not normal at all! A girl is not supposed to look like that!... Other than that fantastic work... I've already experienced anorexia and don't wanna go bak to death again

I know. I mean, I realize it's stylization, but I tend to runs with crap like that. I'd never change Violet for the life of me, but I thought I'd make a statement out of it. And thank you. I'm so glad you've recovered and are doing well :thanks: . I wish you the best.
