For the anon asking about curves months ago, and for anyone else that could use any points on the subject!*
*NOT AN EXPERT THO
I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS SITE. If you’re like me, you occasionally find yourself staring at someone like a huge creep because it isn’t normal to go up and ask people their height and weight, but you wish it was because you think they look a lot like one of your characters and you’d like to know. WELL THERE YOU GO.
anon asked me how do I draw different sized boobs so I whipped up a tutorial (I draw slow, sorry) I am not a good expert at boobies soo sorry x2! weh haha
basically flat = pointy-ish, as boobs size increase the lower half gets rounder, then the top half. boobies are floppy towards the sides due to gravity
shape/perspective of boobs
all the oppais!
even though I am still not really good at drawing boobs at all sigh… i hope you find this useful even for a bit hahaa……..;;
Hello and thank you! C:
I’m just going to throw some links to tutorials here at you because it’s easier than explaining on my own, haha.
Female Body Tutorial (note that the same can be applied to male characters with a few modifications - e.g. the bust/waist/hips/thighs can be modified to shoulders/chest (ribcage)/thighs for male characters, and can be expanded to include neck, shoulders, arms (both upper and lower), and calves for both sexes - all can have varying sizes in any given character, which is what creates a unique silhouette)
Skin: A Chart (note that this is a supplement to a tutorial on how to paint skin, linked in the description to the image)
Younger vs. Older features (a non-realism view on how to make characters look younger by reducing facial detail - not applicable to all styles and character designs but it can be a helpful thing to keep in mind)
Guide to Aging Characters
…I get the feeling I’m forgetting to link something (and for the life of me I couldn’t find anything good on how to draw fatter characters), but there’s the basics I can remember.
thought I’d practice some different body types for women after that atrocious Chris Hart tutorial
I guess when I watch too much animu, I get irritated about the lack of variety.
Don’t even get me started on ”gender roles”. That could take five full sheets of this.
Adding character diversity: Body type
Tips on how to draw not so cookie cutter characters! Change body type and shape, showing off natural differences in build that happen in real life! Not everyone is built the same!
Pt 2 and 3 will follow but check it out on the original posting on the artist’s deviant!
Ok I was recently reminded that this exists (i-I think someone DA-famous linked it or something because WHAT) and I think this may be relevant to tumblr’s interests so here’s my~female body variation tutorial~ whoo~
This came from some things I scribbled down when I was trying to keep my character designs consistent, and I realised that it kinda made me see bodies/proportions somewhat differently so I pasted it into this smarmy old tutorial, now cut up into (I hope) tumblr-friendly chunks so right-click for full size I think? (disclaimer: I don’t know anything and it is so far past my bedtime that it’s been tomorrow for a whole day so I’m going to nap and then maybe regret posting this.)
Sehr gutt! I love the exercise of making different bust-waist-hip-thigh combinations ^^
BODIES AND BODY TYPES
FACES AND FACIAL EXPRESSIONS
Body shapes you should take note of.
Just a few [of the] references [from different websites] I’ve compiled for making more unique face/body shapes in my characters.
Of course, creative liberty is (and can be) taken on most of these shapes, but anyone who wishes to design a character should at least know that there are many shapes and sizes for characters to be and that can define them.
I encourage making each character, human or animal, unique and identifiable by their silhouettes and profiles when they’re bald and unclothed.
fuck nevermind trying to find ways to not suck at art.
