IF "Fat"

The next Illustration Friday theme will likely be "Ugly" and then "Yo Mama". For now it's "Fat". I was stumped for a bit. I mean, "Fat". How many directions can you take that and still be amusing yet potentially disgusting? For me there was really only one way.

Before I show off this bit'o weekly "artwork" let me say I've been on both sides of the scale and currently reside on the heavy side so I'm not poking fun; I'm HAVING fun.

That said, here it is:


clickable for a slight size increase.


Once again, no build steps as it was more of a "make it up as I go" illustration.

I didn't use any kind of photo reference for the innards of the human body and it probably shows. I just thought back real hard to the Visible Man model I had as a child and winged it. Accuracy be damned. Also, both sets of eyes are exactly the same – I just copied the layer and rotated it – yet the top eyes seem so much smaller. Funny how that works.

AND, as long as I'm posting stuff of an arty and weekly nature, here's my entry for the Photoshop Challenge that Trisha runs:



I spent very little time on this one, so that's why it's not that awesome. Still, I look forward to the next challenge.

I love this! I think it's a lot of fun. I took a whole different spin with mine! It's fun though, huh?!

I like the flower even if you didn't spend a lot of time on it. You amaze me with your artistic twist on the word of the week. Well done.

Great illo for this week's theme. I also have been on both sides of the scale. I moved to Texas and was nice and thin, but then I ended up getting real sick and in and out of the hospital...put on oodles of drugs, and WHAM!! Fat I am! Now I just can't get back to my nice, thin self. But, I'm loved...more squeezin' for the pleasin'! LOL! Anyway...great take on this week's them!

Also, great job on the Weekly Photoshop Challenge. It sure looks 3D! Nice job! I do hope you come back for more!

I really like this and I'm no doctor but it seems acurate I think thats how a person inside a person enjoying a donut really looks.

I adore the flower! The colors are so pretty!! And i really like Fat. The look on the skinny guy's face is awesome. Cup of coffee: $1.29. Donut: $2.00. Being spied in a fat guy's body - priceless. :)

Hey! That guy's not fat, he's just "Big Boned."

Nice job.
