Rachel's pandaren-females concepts looks great.
Well, haters gonna hate, as they say.
It's because of some people's insecurity and shallowness about appearances. The sad part is that many of the people who are in support of the type of female pandaren I drew are people who bash thin women. They think that saying "fat is great, skinny is gross," is progressive.
If these "progressive" people found out how I looked, I think their heads would explode. :P
I wish all the body bashing would stop. :/

And I can say that not all females/males hold true since most of the females I know have long noses and not round eyes as you say. And I can also say it because you say that in general what you say holds true, which to me sounds more like "don't say I'm wrong, because in general I'm right".
I also fully disagree with the last sentence in the picture, when you draw something you don't have to go with what makes a woman a woman and a man a man in your opinion, as in your, Rachel's opinion but what makes them so in the artist's opinion.
I'm sorry, I always liked your art, but this commentary just sounds hypocritical to me. The "don't say I'm wrong, for this holds true" is like saying to us we shouldn't even think you're wring because then you'd say we are wrong... which contradicts your sentence. And the other statement , you say you go with characters of different traits, but then say we shouldn't because we have to go by what is generally true (in your mind).
Overall this is my critique to the picture... well actually it's more to the commentary, as the picture is ok except for the tauren female which looks a bit odd, I'd rather take the WoW model of tauren which are more... with sharp features.
Some black dragons for you =)
An old pic of Atramedes...
...and Deathwing, all by me.
Just random black dragon holding a mad halforcen in his paws. In fact, it is what I thought Wrathion should look like. Well, before anything about him was revealed..

I don't think you understand what I'm talking about in that picture. I'm talking about "BASIC MODELS," like the male Pandaren model we have. And I'm not being hypocritical. In art, especially stylization, women tend to carry certain traits. This image is not talking about individual characters, it's talking about templates.
So before you go off saying crap about someone, actually read.
To be honest, I find the "shining example of a night elf druid" to be a bit overboard. The "dine on used pads" is really sickening.
A couple more things I've been working on.
A little 'profile' image of Tully that I've been working on for a couple of weeks off and on.
I decided to scrap the blue eyes, and made her eyes a pinky violet. I've always felt that making a whole race's eyes the same hue and glowy was a bit of a cop out. Also, if you look close, you can see the edges of her nictitating membranes!
This is pretty much how she looks during the events of Cataclysm. She's about 15/16 years old, very shy and self-conscious.
Why such Orcish looking clothes? She ends up living with Shamira (Orc hunter) and Kieran (Sham's kiddo), but I'm still trying to figure out how.
The tomahawk was a coming of age gift, hence the blue ribbon and goddess figure sculpted into the stone.
And please don't complain about her weight. She's my character, not yours.
I've had enough people IRL and on the internet say "but she's a little too fat/skinny, tall/short, her hips are too narrow/wide, etc. "
It gets annoying when other people are trying to dictate how your characters should look. :/
Got bored the other day and sketched up some Tauren subspecies for fun.
Why a bunch of ladies? Our world is very male-centric, to the point where if the sex of an animal is unknown, it's automatically called a male, even though the default is female.
From left to right:
Black wildebeest, Bison/Buffalo, Cape Buffalo, Bongo, and average female Tauren.
I decided to leave their arms out so people would be able to see their body-shape.
The bison one should be a female taunka, I think. I also liked the wildebeest one.
