Sayaka dressing2: Nope, mini skirt won't do! by Nsio Sayaka dressing2: Nope, mini skirt won't do! by Nsio
It's time to make some warm up drawings to get my act together. I'm terribly busy at work and it's taking it's toll, but I try to draw at least something.

So what could be a better subject to draw than Sayaka and her butt? Well, it looks Sayaka wasn't so fond of the idea. It's not that she hates miniskirts (in fact, she wouldn't want to wear them) she is just sensitive about her ample bottom. She definitely isn't happy with it, she would rather not draw unnecessary attention. But what can you do when the cafe her friend Chieko works in has the best cupcakes in the world?

On a more serious note, it's really difficult to exaggerate the forms without going overboard. I was struggling with making different forms properly connected to each other. If the butt is large enough, the thigh has to follow up, otherwise it will just look weird. On the other hand, too thick thighs make the legs look stubby trunks, so there is incentive to draw the legs longer. Balancing that out will eventually lead to normally proportional forms, which are just scaled up in comparison to the rest of the body. That means there is discord in proportions between the bottom and the rest of the body. I have to admit I spent way too many hours on that butt, but hey, I can't say it was entirely unpleasant struggle.

A tip to shed the rust off: when you think you can't draw something properly, draw it badly or don't draw it and continue drawing what you believe you can draw. For example, are you dreadfully scared to draw feet like I am? When you are warming up, give yourself some leeway to get the gears spinning so that you can at least shed the rust off. When you are properly warmed up, it becomes easier to tackle more challenging parts. Like, I know I've been able to draw feet, but it takes so much effort that it's not really worth trying to draw them until I have got my act together.

I really love this pic, you draw thick girls really well. The proportions are great, you've drawn Sayaka's bum without it looking silly and over the top. 

Can't wait to see your next pic of her!

It seems like she has put on a little bit more weight, but it just makes her more attractive, personally. I just like thick girls though.

She needs to date an "ass" man. I feel her opinion of her butt would change completely.

As sexy as a miniskirt would look on Sayaka... :love: I can understand her reluctance in wearing them. :aww: 

Also thanks for the advice. I've recently tried branching out into different poses and drawing different characters. Much to my embarassment, it seems like there are several things I have yet to draw despite them being key elements/features to the things I create. Most recently it was musical insturments, varying forms, muscles, trench coats, varying haircuts, etc. ^^;

"This used to fit..."

I wonder what Sachiko has to say about her little sister's ballooning lower regions...

Heh yeah: exaggerate one proportion, change the next to make it fit, then the next, then the next... and ultimately wind up back at square one, just scaled up 20%. Been there. Glad to hear you're finding at least some time to draw though, that's not always the easiest task.

I really wonder how she got to dress it in the first place :D

Sachiko would definitely make her exercise more if it wasn't her late pregnancy taking its toll :D

It's not that I didn't have the time, I have plenty of time after work really. I'm just tired from all the work I have, I have quite a lot of responsibility on my shoulders because it's practically impossible and infeasible to share my workload to other employees and my boss is busy with other things. There were some attemps to divide to other employees but I noticed those things weren't proceeding at all, so I had to do them myself anyway... :D

I assumed it was the same miniskirt as in one of your earlier pose practices. Sounds like having Sachiko out of action is going to make this a dangerous time for Sayaka though...

Best of luck with the professional stuff as well. I know the feeling,("yes, I could use help, but everything that needs to be done is kind of stuff only I can do"). I've been lucky enough to have a project engineer and a grad available to farm out some work to over the last week or so, but now that my part has ceased being the critical item for the project I suspect I'm going to lose them as they are (quite rightly too, I might add), tasked elsewhere. Hopefully there's light at the end of the tunnel for you though (which isn't an oncoming train)?

Ah you're right, she did wear a miniskirt before! For some reason I completely missed that, that only makes this that much funnier :D

I'll just make that light at the end of the tunnel happen with my efforts. Just gotta make sure I have the energy while working, it's okay to rest on my spare time.

Nice to see that you are slowly trying to come back and great execution as always. Life responsibilities can definitely burden you to the point where it is hard to accomplish things in your free time, but hey you come back the next day as a more resilient person due to the experience.

Just gotta suck it up. It's not that I didn't have the time really, it's just that I'm rather tired after work. On the other hand, drawing is recreational when done right, and the more frequently one draws, the less likely it is to get rusty (which just would multiply the problems).
