Bulimia

Share

Eating disorders. This is the feeling when you're deep in and it's ruining you but you can't get out.

Over half of teenage girls and 1/3 of teenage boys control weight with skipped meals, fasting, cigarettes, laxatives, and vomiting. (Neumark-Sztainer 2005)

I was looking back through my ditched works last year, they were so dark! Found this, even though I hate it, I completed it because it will resonate with some, and maybe even help those going down this path from doing so.

Wow, very clean-cut, graphic, even. I'd like a less blurry aesthetic in some portions, but the fingers and nose grabbed my attention immediately. Wanting a little more crisp on the eyes, some more grit to the vomit -- but otherwise, beautiful piece.

youre purge pic is a lot cleaner than the ones i did lol. nice one here.

Amazing I love your paintings. I love the brush strokes and the hints of color and I also love the subject matter. I used to have anorexia and still struggle with body image issues today. I appreciate the acceptance and understanding of eating disorders and I have a lot of empathy for those who do struggle.

thanks :) Definitely. Congrats for recovering! It is definitely something that is not acknowledged as it should be.

Good artists illustrate a wide spectrum of things, including dark subjects. Dunno how this looked before you polished and completed it, but it's wonderfully rendered, especially the bile noose. Really excellent piece.

So uhh is that peanut butter or something?
