female body tutorial? by lihsa female body tutorial? by lihsa
I can't believe I'm submitting... well, I won't call this a tutorial. It's actually just a collection of notes and things I sketched down, which I thought someone else might find helpful.

As you can see, I'm rather lacking when it comes to the male body, and could probably use a few tutorials myself.

Edit: Ok, rather belatedly I'd like to say thank you thank you thank you for the DD, and every single comment/fav!! It's amazing to read that this is actually helping people! Please keep in mind that this is meant only as inspiration- there are a million more body types than the handful I used this method to describe. Do the random combination exercise, reference real people, go out and make the world a beautiful and varied place :)

female body tutorial? by ~lihsa -- Suggester's words: is a clever, fresh look at how cartoon and anime artists can break free from formulaic interpretations of the female figure. Her exercise in how to vary the size and shape of a female body is quick, easy to understand, and when you try it, you'll instantly feel like you've leveled up your understanding and skill! I've recommended this tutorial to all my friends! ( Suggested by animatey and Featured by FantasyStock )

I'm glad to see the "apple" shape included. People AAAAlways forget about the apple shape. Gets pretty disheartening as a female to never see your body shape as an illustration of what "female" is shaped like.  Thanks for the love!
