this is dedicated to a real life friend of mine lmao

Okay, so here’s a recollection of the best day of my fandom life? #ECCC

I’m usually just here to make short, dumb, spazzy comments, so bear with me, because this will probably be long. However, I’ll try not to be too repetitive and remember the interesting parts. ;) Apologies if the pics are effing huge. I don’t do this posting thing - ever. hahah

So did you start draeing bodies..did you just kinda start trying and practicing? I hate bodies ;^; -🌸

I feel you in a serious way, my guy. Bodies suck. :’)

One of the most frustrating things about being asked these sorts of questions is that when it comes down to it, there’s not a whole lot I can tell you besides PRACTICEPRACTICEPRACTICE. I can offer you helpful tips, (art formulas, so to speak,) but the most effective thing you can do is get out and do your best to pick stuff up from everyday life.

As for your question itself! Just like in real life, the bodies you draw need skeletons. You need to lay out the basic shapes of the person you’re drawing before you hunker down on details. So start out with an ugly-ass sketch. Hella ugly. It doesn’t matter, just as long as that initial doodle sets the framework for whatever or whoever you have in mind.

Here’s a basic sketch of an OC of mine, with some helpful measurement tips:

In case my notes don’t make sense, (or you straight-up can’t read my handwriting lmao,) the average person’s torso is about twice the height of their head, and their lower half is about three times the height of their head. Your elbow should line up with your belly button. When your hands rest at your side, they should touch your mid-thigh. These rough measurements help me LOADS. There’s also certain measurements for facial features, but since we’re talkin’ bodies, I’ll save that for another time.

Adding details to your sketch is where the real work comes in. This is the part when you add clothes, hair, distinct features, etc. Basic measurements and formulas become less relevant, and real-life experience and studying becomes crucial. It’s tough, but the more reliable your skeleton, the less eyeballing you ultimately have to do.

Here’s the finished product of the sketch above:

(still super rushed, I’m sorry.) You can see I did away with some shit and added more shit, but that’s just because I have a tendency to hurry to the lineart phase and am pretty comfortable with pulling stuff out of my ass as I go. You don’t have to do that! If you’re comfortable with drawing the whole thing out as a sketch first and then just tracing, that’s totally fine.

Another thing that I tell literally everybody who wants to learn through reference: Pinterest is your friend. No, seriously. Making a board dedicated to drawing references and tutorials will save your life, water your crops, and feed your children. SUPER easy way to refer back to helpful stuff, and you can access your account from anywhere. Trust me on this one.

I’m not sure if this really helped, but I hope it did! <3

So, here I am with my first follow forever! This mean, as I said early today, that I have 500+ followers -cries- I cannot believe that I gained this amount in almost less than a week since I created this blog last sunday’s evening ;u;
