Have you ever sat down and come up with this great idea to create from pencil to paper? As you sketch, you start to realize that your vision isn’t very good. You speed and sweat, scribble and erase. In the end, you will end up with something completely arbitrary from your original vision. This is because unskilled artists see things differently than skilled artists. A skilled artist knows his limits by ‘learning’ and experimenting; especially practice. When you learn to draw, your passion will overwhelm that feeling of “failure.” This simple tutorial will cover the very basic principles of drawing anime bodies.
Before diving into drawing the body, you should ALWAYS plan out the shape in a basic general way. Never sketch something and start perfecting it without considering it as a whole. I recommend planning the pose according to the contours or guidelines of the skeleton before finalizing the functional parts of the body. If you have a weak foundation then you will have a weak settlement. Train yourself to sketch quickly as soon as you have a ‘vision’ of your drawing. It really helps!
Like I said in the previous step, it’s important that you sketch out the ‘skeletal lines’ of the figure before literally drawing the limbs and body structure. If you don’t have a strong and precise guide to building the form, you will completely fail. Actually drawing from instructions is actually easier than it looks, because it gives you the advantage to draw accurately. Take 30 minutes and roughly sketch various poses by looking at different references. The larger your arsenal of practiced drawing poses, the higher your chances of creating dynamic poses in your hands.
Now, a big flaw I see in new artists (don’t worry, I’m not making any puns), is that they don’t understand the concept of ‘balance’, which is very important when drawing That’s trustworthy. Balance is basically the plank that holds all our weight evenly so we can function without trouble. When we change that balance (by climbing a tilted ladder or climbing a mountain), it becomes unreliable and unpredictable. In this figure, all the weight is placed on the left leg, leaving the right leg and other limbs unaffected by any advancement in movement.
When drawing male figures, remember that they have less curves than females. Their bodies are boxy and defined. They have more muscle mass and agility. Their shoulders are broader, creating a sharp and bold figure. Looking from the side, you can see that the body is perfectly straight, without prominent curves like women. The gray line represents the line of motion or ‘balance’ for the figures.
This is just a basic overview of the three main male body types. The first, of course, is the muscle man or ‘body builder’. The body has thin defined lines that indicate muscle tone and definition. When we zoom out to the average body, you’ll see how the details are less intense. The pink arrow points to the lines that give the image realism and depth. If you’re going to draw a muscular character, I would consider looking at lots of reference photos of muscular men.
Basics of female anatomy | The difference between drawing women is that women generally have more curves than men. The hips and shoulders are almost perfectly ALIGNED when compared vertically to each other. It’s best to look at images of a woman’s body in motion to get a general idea of how to pose in different forms. If necessary, get yourself a poseable mannequin. Note* The typical height of a female is 6-7 heads. This means, if you size their heads vertically, you will have a reasonable and average height.
Pay attention to the balance of the body and the hips being almost perfectly aligned with the shoulders. Note that the woman’s shoulders are NOT perfectly pointed and straight like the terrible drawing on the right. Observation is key!
Breast Variations | Now, here’s a quick summary of how different breast sizes affect body shape. We have very small, average, above average and large DD cup breasts. Because gravity acts continuously on objects; The breasts will sink downward and have a protruding part at the nipple (nipple). NEVER draw the breasts bulging outward as if a force were pushing them outward or upward, as shown in the grayscale illustrations. Also, pay attention to the patterned lines cutting through the middle of the chest on each figure. This shows how overlapping objects will transform according to the shape of the original object (clothing, accessories, etc.)
Start by drawing the shapes and instructions to create a mannequin-like character that you will make throughout the lesson.
Draw the shape of the girl’s face like so, then start drawing the hair that covers her entire right or left side. The bangs I chose to draw are very sharp and long.
Here you’ll draw the rest of her hairstyle as follows, then add detail to the roots. Draw thin eyebrows, then draw surprised eyes. The upper eyelids of her eyes should be very thick and bold if you want this look on your anime character. Add the nose and mouth and continue.
Starting with the body, draw the neck, shoulders, then the arms cupped upwards. The fist should also be extended because the child will grip his clothes tightly in the following steps.
Draw her body shape as torso, waist, and hips. Don’t forget to draw the line at her groin as well as the shape of the bottom for her breasts.
Draw the cleavage like so, then sketch something for her collar. Draw the bandage like the wrap she’s using to hide her private parts, then draw the bandage around her hand, wrist, and forearm. Be sure to also sketch
Here you will sketch the bandage on her hips and private area like so. If you want to add your own clothes, you can do that instead. I wanted to leave her with very few clothes because I know that you guys like to dress up anime characters in your own way. Add details to her belly and you’re done.
Finally, draw the wavy length of her hair, then outline all the details that will add texture to her locks. Erase the mistakes you’ve made along the way.
So now that you’ve practiced this pose, you should go ahead and start practicing your own poses. The first step gave you a basic example of how to use bone contours before forming limbs. I hope you guys like this, a lot of time has been invested in this guide. Let me know if any of these are helpful for your needs. Thank you so much and peace!
