This here is a commission from *GregStevens for an article he is writing. The whole concept is about bodybuilders who see themselves as "too thin" or "too fat" and the idealism that they have that they must have the "perfect body" to look good. The whole animation is 4 seconds long and fluctuates between 3 different forms. I've worked with him throughout this piece to make sure it is exactly as he wanted.

:bulletblue: The first is an exact mirror of the guy looking in the mirror.
:bulletblue: The second is a thinner version to reflect the "too thin" perception.
:bulletblue: The third is a less defined version to reflect the "too fat" perception.

Overall I think it turned out quite well. Feel free to comment how you think of it.

I was wondering how your article is going? It's been over a month and I haven't heard anything.

WHAT!? I thought I messaged you.. sorry if I somehow forgot or missed it. I published at the end of last month, like I said I would!


It got over 100 hits the first week it was up, and now is still getting hits trickling in over time. Hopefully you got some click-throughs to this page, because the image links to here.

Muscle dysmorphia seems to be on the rise--thanks for working to spread awareness. I also *really* love the rug he's standing on
