Do you have any advice on drawing people with different body types?
Haha just put everyone in baggy clothes or big dresses? I’m not great at this but my two pieces of advice would be:
1: Learn the skeleton first, then build on top of that by adding more fat an muscle. Once you know the direction and length of the bones, you will have a great framework to work off of.
2: Learn from your friend’s insecurities. If you know what someone is worried about, try drawing it (secretly of course). You can start to collect different body traits to put on various characters. For example: I have a friend who is shy about her ‘giraffe legs’, and one that gets bruises on her back where her spine sticks out, someone who has hips that dip in before the leg, one who is insecure about her ‘round knees’, someone who complains about their ‘thunder thighs’, lack of boob, etc… These are all the cool traits that make our bodies unique. Practice drawing them!
