I have to say I hope that the female pandaren (like the one in the background of the pic on the linked article) don't turn out all tall and willowy. I want 'em short and curvy like the pandaren males.

That one looked like a little kid standing on a snowbank to me, rather than a tall Panda-woman.

I'm a Girl who likes a healthy body image in real life. A sort of Goldilocks zone that is not too fat, not too thin. WoW is not real life. In order to sell Pandaren females, and make people WANT to play as females, they have to be feminine. Nobody wants to feel frumpy when they play a race. Why do you think Dwarf females rarely get played? Tauren Females work, because they have the "ugly Betty" effect going for them .I might not be able to play a Pandaren, if the females end up too fat. :/ Brutal but honest.

Definitely want to see a super round female body type on these

Female pandaren should look like this. Stocky, full of attitude. Perfect!http://i54.tinypic.com/6qcn4k.jpg

That's the ticket, Spider, exactly what I envision.

@SpiderThat's awesome. The first piece of artwork that ever made me blush :) I hope blizz get's a hold of that somehow. That is how she should be. Good job.

Blarg, comments ate the second part of my post. Had link to the deviantart gallery of the artist:http://tarajenkins.deviantart.com/#/d4dk6ck

@Aba - See, that's the thing. I'm a plus-sized gal, and I WANT to see more characters that represent different sizes and shapes! That assert that ANY shape and size can be beautiful and butt-kicking, beyond a shallow "goldilocks zone" of ideals.Take a step back and realize you just may be projecting insecurities and body images problems on an anthropomorphic panda. Because not all girls feel this way. And some of them do proudly play hard drinking, punch throwing female dwarves, too. ;)

And sorry, didn't mean to go somewhat into a rant there. I just...bleh. There is no one "ideal" for body image, or healthy, or size. The sooner we realize that, the sooner people stop being bullied for simply being.@Spider - That link is cute. :) I've been itching to sketch out what I see these gals looking like. :)
