This just seems like an appropriate time to post the picture for Mama Oclo, my warden character from a D&D game.

I like this picture very much. It is well done and conveys dynamism.

This and Bruno's Mama Oclo both look healthy.

Most of the character illos seem dangerously thin, if not positively twiggish and elfin. And I find that unattractive.

She needs considerably broader shoulders and thicker upper arms. The fact is, a strong woman will tend towards a more masculine figure -- she'll still have broader hips because of different bone structure, she'll still have breasts, and a woman is unlikely to achieve the extreme upper body bulk of a male weightlifter or bodybuilder, but there isn't that much difference, there's still the same basic muscles needed.

People who work out a crapload traditionally say, "Yeah, I work out a little," jokingly when asked, if they aren't into totally bragging about it. I was picturing a raised eyebrow and confident half-smile for it.

Mama Oclo seems at least a little overweight. The succubus is hot, though (and I'm normally not attracted to cartoons).

Mama Oclo is both well muscled and that sort of overweight that people call "matronly". All that combined with being over six feet tall means she gets called Big Mama pretty regularly.

When she's not using the very plants against them, she's whacking them with a macuahuitl.
