Arisielia "Ari" Carroll - 05 by zelda308 Arisielia "Ari" Carroll - 05 by zelda308
The fifth and final Ari for this particular commission! Everyone make sure to thank Kainazzitron for his story that inspired this beautiful character.

This is my second favorite pic from the bunch. Ari had to gain a lot of weight back, but I think it all ended up in even better ratios this time around.

My only artistic woe was that the backgrounds gave me such an impossible time for all the pics in this commission. I went through all kinds of time and effort trying to design realistic sets... and I found out that I don't have much natrual talent for it. :( If anyone has some reading or something that could help me with that, please forward it my way - I could use the helping hand!

One of the biggest things that makes or breaks any great work of art is the face. It can turn a masterpiece into a turd. But man, you took a good picture and made it great with her beautiful face.

This is my ideal. I have always preferred the "before"
pictures to the "after". I am still bewildered as hell
that women are so discouraged with me. It's as
though somewhere there is a third sex I don't know
about.

Quite the picture set, quite. Beautiful girl, beautiful background, and beautiful accessories and clothing. Indeed, I anticipate the story and the writer sounds like a cultured and verbose individual so I have no doubts on the quality of the work.

Ooooooh...that's an UMBRELLA in the bag! When I looked at the thumbnails last night I thought it was a rifle, good to see she doesn't see the need to take beach safety THAT far!

After the final showdown, I was originally just going to have her stay skinny, sort of as an "all's well that ends well" recursive ending. However, I WAS telling a WG story, and I noticed that it was near the end and she hadn't "happily" gained any yet. Before, it was always out of stress or freak circumstances or as a means to power. Heck, at her largest, she's just following along with the social norm for baronial people like herself. So, I have her put a little back on. She's decided to help rebuild her hometown, and once that's done things really die down. Ari's finally able to kick-back and enjoy life's wonders, and food is most certainly one of those. Naturally, without much thought, Ari grows back to a little less than half the size she was in #4, and she finds herself quite comfortable just staying there. If anything, it's a lasting symbol of her amazing accomplishments. Sure, her thin body and fast running may have jumpstarted her journey, but her gain allowed her to stabilize and finish it. Sounds a little loony out of context, but bear with me :).

Oh, right, the piece! Again, your style is just incredible, I'm almost expecting there to be a "play" button. Nice choice of colors for the swimsuit too, the fact that it matches with her outfit from #1 (and the fact that she's smiling in both) really gives me the sense of recursive closure that I wanted. Throughout all of these commissions, you did so much with the little I gave you, I can't believe you not only matched what I wanted, but also made it far better than I could have ever described. Of course...now I'll have to I guess, now that I have these concrete illustrations I can really start filling in the blanks!

You mentioned awhile back that you hoped to one day draw for a living? Well, I hope that day comes soon, they really could use more people like you! Thanks a lot for these wonderful works!

I've been crunching on midterms for the past few weeks, and that's put me into a bit of a slump on progress. Thankfully, it's all finally over tomorrow, and I'll be dead set on getting the first chapter all prim and proper for posting, maybe even ship the second if I'm on a roll!

The story's first draft, while complete, is definitely less than ideal. I suppose I could post it, but if someone reads 200k+ words, chances are they're not going to do to it again anytime soon. I'd like the reader to get the better experience the first time through, or whatever one I can give anyway :)

Backgrounds are arduous, especially if you're taking perspective, angling, and proportions into account. But this'll do because it's just lovely. I might commission you one of these days. :3

*pheew!* I'm relieved to hear that these backgrounds worked well with the piece - too many hours and brain-cells were lost to solving that problem! And of course if you've any ideas for commissions you'd like me to put to my style, I'm always here to please!

Your works are virtually without peer. BBWs are hard to do in the fact that most of the time the first B negates the second B. But I've never seen a woman of yours be anything but gorgeous no matter the dimensions. :D
