Long anatomy tutorials are my favorite - there's so much information! It's so helpful, even if also a little exhausting :b.

I love the comparison to anime anatomy - I've never seen anyone do that in a tutorial, before! It's really helpful for us poor fools who like our Sailor Moon legs and enormous eyes D: xDD.

Thank you so much for doing this, it was very helpful, and very interesting, as well ;///;!

I still have trouble with anatomy. xD;; But I hope after this tutorial, you came to an ignorant medium of acceptance with your anatomy skills and never stop practicing. : D

Really? Looking at your photos, you really have an eye for proportional spacing and such, I would think it wasn't a problem for you. O:

Um.. try starting off your bodies with a line. Like a noodle. Think of it as a spine, position it how you think your characters back will look, then draw the body shapes from there.

Look at the blank piece of paper the way you would look through a lens, then imagine the body and let it come alive for you. Try not to be fussy and focus on one thing, let it come to you. It probably wont come the first time, but keep trying.

I hope that helps.
