The Monalisa wasnt skinny as f*ck and still.. Got pretty famous. So, dont sweat it, u might be the next big thing in art. :P. But yeah.. Pretty inconsiderate of your professor.

I'm with 34. Normalcy is boring. The professor shouldn't have said that out loud but take pride that you're not the average Joe. Distinctiveness is a really attractive trait, OP, so be proud!

Ok, I'm just throwing this out there, and this is not normally my position. But for some reason, I feel like OP actually is rather good looking. There are those people out there that don't necessarily fit society's idea of "perfect" and are still still very attractive. In all honesty, how many people out there actually fit the "ideal" proportions? I know I don't.

Okay, why does everyone have to be beautiful? Why can't OP be ugly? Is there something wrong with being ugly? Last time I checked beauty is in the eye of the beholder and the professor had zero obligation to compliment or insult her body type. Not to mention, it actually probably was not rude/an insult at all. If you see figure drawings, you will see that they are actually not at all the usual 'flattering figure', but are in fact, several different body types. Because that's what drawing people is. Exploring strange shapes. And how the body folds.

42 - bad choice of wording on my part. The professor had no reason/obligation to be insulting or complimenting her/him, meaning that it was likely he was not doing either. And 3 has probably never even seen OP, so yes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, which 3 is not. Annnnd I also never said OP is ugly, I said why can't OP be ugly.

Exactly! OP needs to tell him/herself daily affirmations that they should be happy about their looks. I've never given that advice before but it sounds like it is really needed.

I don't think the teacher was trying to insult at all, in art, people are encouraged to stray from the typical 'good' body types. That's why in figure drawing, rolls of fat are actually helpful for the artist to exercise. Don't get why everyone is feeling so offended.
