this is more of a demonstration than a real tutorial because i’m bad at explaining things exactly as i do it? these are all really quick and cartoony sketches but hopefully they get the point across!
but basically, the expression of body types depends a lot on the skeleton’s proportions how muscle and fat etc are distributed,
as well as height; a taller person and a shorter person of the same weight will have different proportions and expressed body types (the shorter person will look fatter and the taller person will look thinner, because of how the weight is distributed on the body)
I can’t believe I’m posting this because now yall know I’m an extreme fatty no lie. But you know what, even though I look fucking gross and FATTER THAN I DO IN PERSON(??!!!?!?!) in these pics it was still the best day of my life.
