NOTE: I'm not trying to push any sexual identity agenda or statement with these, so for those calling this tutorial "cis-sexist", keep in mind that tutorials such as these are much easier and simpler to explain this way to an art-education audience.

I got so many inquiries about a male tutorial, so thanks to everyone for their patience. As with my female tutorial, I don't intend to offend anyone with these, so please don't get offended for some reason. These are very generalized body types, so there are a  million types in between these.

I may do up some more intensive anatomical tutorials based on my schooling and others' methods.

As before, there are many illustrators out there that know much more than I do, so I highly suggest studying their work and methodology:

Frank Frazetta
Tanino Liberatore
Steve Huston
Michael Hampton
Moebius
John Buscema
Burne Hogarth
Andrew Loomis
Milo Manara
Paolo Serpieri
Phil Hale
Nishimura Kinu
Jeffrey Catherine Jones
Barry Windsor-Smith
Bernie Wrightson
Bengus

YOU CAN ASK ME FOR MORE ILLUSTRATORS IF YOU NEED INSPIRATION IN OTHER AREAS.

Gonna favorite this one too, as I am a bit better at drawing masculine bodies, but I still need help with the different body types. Thanks again.

Quick question: How does one differentiate a child from a little person? considering both types are about the same head height? Im tired when writing this so if i missed some obvious clue or something pls dont yell at me.
Phobos-Romulus's avatar
Haha, no worries. If I had to guess, I'd probably say that little people tend to have the head size of a grown adult, but a body similar to that of a child.
