It’s a pretty standard exercise to see published celebrity images that have been touched up with photoshop to make the celebs appear thinner, often going to impossible limits. Well, but then not everyone likes seeing people thin. So artist David Lopera went the opposite route and decided celebrities needed to get a “bit” chubbier.
The 20 year old often receives requests from fans to make their favored celebrities or characters look plump. While this usually includes photographs of celebrities, there is no dearth of people requesting images where animated characters like Frozen’s Elsa gained a few (hundred) pounds.
An image can often take as much as two days to complete. There appears to be quite an interest in David Lopera’s work. He claims to have received more than 200 requests in less than a year.
