Our society values more body than other parts of ourselves. However, any small detail can become a substantial flaw, thus completely erasing the concept that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
My work wants to stand out of this misconception: every person has the right to feel beautiful. I'm mostly focusing on weight issues, mostly due to personal conditions, and because I think they really represent the way our society has a skewed point of view on the perception of beauty.
To carry out my work, I use anthropomorphic animals as an "alternative point of view" on humanity itself.

In this project I will create body-positive pictures and I will also be available for simple commissions. Body-positive pictures will be both inspired by real artworks (Alphonse Mucha's creations and different paintings) and will be free-to-choose by patrons. They will be divided in three different "tiers:" the first will feature A4-sized pictures with a single character in soft pastels, the second will feature art nouveau-styled pictures inspired by Alphonse Mucha's works with a single character in watercolor, the third will feature single characters in A3-sized pictures in soft pastels based on real-world paintings.
Characters involved will be female anthropomorphic animals. Patrons will choose both body build and species. If you want yourself to be depicted, just give me some information about your shape (I don't want your photographs!) and some other elements you'd like to see.

This represents Tier 1 reward.
Tier 1 rewards will be focused on the creation of personalized pictures. Tell me what kind of character you'd like to see: species, shape, size and so on. As I previously said, all characters will be plus-sized female anthropomorphic animals, and if you wish you can represent yourself here.
You can either decide everything, from pose to setting, or you can let me choose by myself. I will draw it on A4-sized heavyweight paper with soft pastels, with such results:
