Drawing The Female Figure by ClaytonBarton Drawing The Female Figure by ClaytonBarton
Drawing The Female Figure
----------------------------------
After all the things I looked up on the internet and all the books I read on how to draw the female figure I found this method the most easiest and accurate to learn.

Draw a Line, then a diamond shape with the line as it's center, the add two circles at the bottom... And there you go, a perfectly proportioned torso and waist.

I don't think it's too accurate, but it's pretty okay. 'Cause, her upper torso looks abit more muscular, and her waist isn't very naturally feminine-like. I think her waist should be abit higher for this picture. c:

Wow, this is actually really helpful. I stopped drawing for quite a while, and then tried to draw tonight but really struggled. But after seeing this, and with a little bit more effort, drawing the girls isn't do hard :D :heart: Took me half an hour to get a decent drawing thanks to you :love:

though the perception of how easy it'd be to draw the female figure based on your reference, can differ between artist to artist, this seems to be a viable solution to drawing the base of a female figure.

ths helped a little.

thanks.

though i think the study of the muscle structure of the human body would be a great addition in unison with this technique to grasp the concept of how to draw a female body.

And if I mess around with the size of the diamond I can alter the shape and size of the torso. Big woman, small woman, wierd woman right?
