i am so deeply tired of skinny martins! and defending it as a stylistic thing or lack of skill is just not acceptable when there are resources and people who try very hard to provide tips and references! here's one -- a collection of stock photos all of plus-sized people! here's another -- art references with a very wide selection of body types, including plus-sized people, amputees, little people, and more! here's a third -- another stock photo resource that, while not geared towards just plus-sized people, has plenty of them, and is entirely composed of black and brown models! and another stock photo site's plus-size section!
tips off the top of my head: no, making someone's skull larger is not the same as drawing them fat. stop perfectly defining their jawline! stop giving them a slim neck! yes, there are fat people who have those traits because there's no end to the diversity of human bodies, but ask yourself: why do you feel the need to default to that? why are you resistant to giving a character a double chin, neck rolls, and/or an undefined jaw?
in general, making a character physically bigger is not the same thing as making them fat. giving them a barrel chest does not count as fat. giving them cartoonishly broad shoulders does not count as fat. giving them a build that's the exact same as a thin or stocky character but scaled up 1.5x does not count as fat. drawing martin bigger than jon does not mean you are drawing him fat. it does not automatically count.
learn what places fat generally collects on people! learn what effect that has on the way they stand, the way they sit, the way they move, the way they dress -- a person's body will impact every single part of their lived experience. learn how to draw undefined jaws. learn how to draw stomach rolls, back rolls, "cankles", fat arms and wrists, round faces, all of it. learn how to draw stretch marks, dimples, and cellulite. force yourself to unlearn what you think a person's body should look like. make a point to draw people who aren't the idealized hourglass figure with wide hips and a tiny waist, or else the idealized muscle-fat with a barrel chest and muscular arms. draw people who are unapologetically fat.
there is no excuse for not learning how to draw a range of body types. there is no excuse for not learning how to draw fat people. the resources are out there, but you have to make an effort.

Archive 81 netflix show spoilers
So the A81 netflix show dropped today, and I know we were all dunking on it anyway, but they have not only made Melody Pendras fully straight, but also made her wife her straight roommate, and then also made Melody and Samuel romantic interests. 
If this were an original show, I can see why they did it - have one of the protagonists fall in love with the evil guy, have it be a betrayal, and have her roommate be a supportive force in her life keeping her grounded. But this isn’t an original show - although, in my opinion, it should be with how little it resembles the source material - this is based on a story already, one that has one of the central relationships be two gay women who start off already in a committed relationship and end up getting married afterwards. The show has taken her anchor, the woman she loves, and turned her into her messy roommate, who cheers her on as she kisses the villain. If that doesn’t bother you, or make your stomach turn, then I frankly don’t want to hear from you.
In the original podcast, her connection to and love for Alexa, her girlfriend, is the reason why she does everything she can to survive the Visser building, why she forms a place in The City for the Visser community and builds herself and Alexa a cottage to live in peacefully, and why inevitably they get married. For a character stuck in 1994, this kind of relationship was not only still controversial, but Alexa even experiences homophobia to the point of killing the guy to be with Melody again. Gay people populate all of Archive 81, and its a podcast that shows gay people can be extraordinary, and we will survive through great tragedy. Alexa and Melody loved each other so much they killed for their love, they left behind their homophobic families for love, they built community for love, and they’ve been married for 20+ years. To have Melody lose that anchor and that relationship makes it harder to believe why she would survive through the season (although again, they’ve already changed it beyond recognition from the original).
Melody doesn’t even meet Samuel until the end of Season 1 - she hears about him in passing stories, glimpses of his followers, murmurs through the walls of the cult meetings he holds. Samuel is designed to be a heard but not seen villain, the picture of a condescending academic who uses the people of Visser to reach his ends, uncaring about their fate, whereas Melody actively forms community in the building. The fight in Visser is not two lovers and good VS evil, it is a fight between chaos VS order, poverty VS capital, and the individual VS community.
To take everything building the narrative of season 1, to turn Melody straight, to turn her wife into her roommate, to turn Samuel into a love interest, and to change the entire conflict and reasoning behind the story, is to ultimately destroy the meaning of the show. And frankly, even if they wanted to just fuck the plot into the ground, to make an important gay woman straight just to appeal to netflix’s homophobic values is pitiful and disgusting. 
I strongly dissuade people from giving it any attention. I wanted to watch the whole thing to see how it turns out, but watching Melody kiss a man actually made my blood boil.
