Here is =Candy2021
's Gail McKirdy; another one of my favorite MH oc's! Woohoo!
Gail's design is just gorgeous, absolutely stunning! Her kind and generous personality is something I love, but also the fact that her good heart is also her downfall is- yes!
Before I saw Gail I only drew characters with similar body types, "idealized" body types. I looked more into Candy's gallery and saw the Female Body Type Chart that she had made. That chart opened my eyes. I started delving into social politics. I started reading, going to lectures and discussing body politics, body policing, fat shaming, fat phobia and many other important topics. It also changed the way I thought. Gail reminded me a lot of myself. Incredibly passive and overall kind, letting others step all over them. She made me think a lot about self worth.
So yeah, I really want to thank =Candy2021
for being such an extraordinary, lovely, sweet and inspirational person. I have a whole lot of respect for you. I look up to you as well (no pressure).
I hope I'm not ranting or showing my fanpersoning or anything like that... sorry. >///<
