The image towards body acceptance is slowly changing, and people have started to accept various body types in recent years – which is a good sign!
One talented artist that goes by the name Crystal Water and is the person behind the Instagram account Neoqlassical Art is posting reimagined drawings of Disney characters as plus-size princesses in order to raise awareness of body acceptance and the representation of “large bodies”. Additionally, her ultimate goal is for everyone to learn to love themselves.
However, even though most people reacted positively to her drawings, it caused a bit of controversy and some people accused her of “glorifying obesity” and promoting unhealthy lifestyles.
The artist explained to Bored Panda that she’s never told anyone to get more fat, or that being fat is more desirable than being thin. Her message is that every life is equal, and is just as worth living as any other.
Crystal’s drawings are truly unique, and we invite you to scroll down and check out some of her work below.
