I'm sorry to hear that OP. You're professor is really inconsiderate to say that about you.
That's extremely rude. I'm so sorry someone would say that. I bet you're beautiful.
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.
Wow, I'd retort with "Next you're going to pose nude to demonstrate a small dick, yes?"
Self-esteem boost comes from "self," you don't need opinions of others to be happy with yourself!
The Mona Lisa model also had strange proportions. Up yours teacher!
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.
People say that to me all the time once they see how big my sick is
