Hey, I really want to get into art but I seriously don't know how to draw a body? The stick figure just isn't working for me, do you maybe know another way or maybe tips?

so quick disclaimer before i start: i decided to do the female body because i learned how to draw women before i started drawing men… and im also a woman LOL so i have a better idea of how to break down each body part… also curves are really fun to draw!! whereas men im still trying to figure out what goes where

i also think its easier to start off with women and then transition into drawing men? at least that’s what i find… so if anyone wants a follow up tutorial on men just let me know! 


i think when it comes to drawing bodies, i find that it’s a lot easier if you imagine shapes first

by recognizing certain body parts as shapes you can sort of configure a guideline first in the pose and proportions you want first before adding any details

for example this is how i would plan out a (very skinny lol) female body before starting

so in red is my actual organic process, which is really quick and fluid and then in black is just a more defined demo of the shapes i have in mind 

one of the biggest problems i see for people starting out drawing bodies is that they’re so caught up trying to get every detail correct, by the time they’re finished the proportions are all off… so by planning the shapes first i can ensure i have every part the correct length and width i want

ok again this is going to be a really long post so more details on each body part under the cut!

I have been meaning to share this but I keep forgetting so, Last September I gave a Talk about Character Design in Atlantic University in Puerto Rico. I made this sheet to demonstrate my process when designing a character based on reference. I chose Olive from Little miss sunshine because she’s an awesome character, visually interesting and unique (cheating).

This is a demo illustration, for testing out some new techniques and brushes. The overall theme is very retro sci-fi. The girl has had many iterations, I couldn’t quite find the right look for her until one day I had to come back with fresh eyes an finally decide. This project was really fun even with all the trouble it became.

Today I got a unique note on a Nick Wilde shot, that his mouth shape looked like a hamburger…and it did.

This note was from the amazing Jen Hager! She is such an incredible supervisor, and on top of that, she was an animator that I looked up to when I was in school! In 2007 I was finishing my first year of college, and I found her demo reel online. I was BLOWN away, to say the least. In Canada, I felt disconnected to the industry, but finding her demo reel made me realize what other students were doing; it set a quality bar. I would watch it over and over again for inspiration and for educational reasons. I found it was easier to aspire to someone who was close to my age, and a student like me, because it made the goal obtainable. Comparing myself to Glen Keane, or Eric Goldberg always made me feel like I could never reach their level.

I still watch Jen’s reel, and better yet, I have the great opportunity of working with her and learning from her everyday! Check out her student reel here:

Who’s your inspiration these days? Are there people in the industry, or students that you look up to?
