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 ;///;!

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.

I have a quiestion, what about if the body is turned to the side... you draw the same but more like... plain? <---- I mean, like for example the chest, you do a rectangle instead of a square like form? lol I'm kinda dumb for these things... XD
Reply
:iconmitsuko-ume:
Mitsuko-Ume Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2008
Okay, I came back to answer this.

If you're drawing from the side, you'll use the same method as far as shapes and everything, just turned to their sides. The difference is in placing. For example, if you're drawing the chest from a profile, instead of the circle (for the shoulder) being on the corner, it will be centered on the (I suppose now a rectangle) shape for the chest. The ball used for the start of the leg is also be in the center.

Does that help?

Pester me about it and stuff so I will post something like that.

I just noticed something. In of your pictures they show someone wearing a white shirt in this tutorial with some letters on one side. It looks like the words are E.D.W. just wondering if they are because it looks like the uniform the girls at the school i go to wear.

:iconmitsuko-ume:
Mitsuko-Ume Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2007
Actually, the letters you see are ER which are the last letters to RIVER which was the second word in the name of my middle school. It was my PE shirt, (the model is me v_v) and since I was quite the chunkster as a middle schooler (i like to think I grew out of it... lol), I can still fit into my PE shirt and it's really comfortable, so i wear it a lot as a pajama or house shirt.

Yep :)
