Tips on drawing female body

Tips on drawing female body. I have a few people request doing a basic female body form so here it is. It’s just a basic model proportion sheet to practice basic female form for beginners. My advice is that it is not flattering drawing female figure as it is shown, it is a model sheets. And very BASIC.
When drawing female or woman, you have to keep in mind their body language, gesture, and movement. You have to find what make them femenine, how sexy female stand or sit or lay. How do they move what kind of poses. How would a tough, but sexy or cute woman would poses…it’s all depend on the personality of the character you want to portray. Though you have to study from real people, from good reference, from movie or any kind of media around you.
One of the best way to practice drawing female figure or male is to attend life drawing (figure drawing) session in your area. They usually hold it at university, art group, etc. Ask around and you will find. It is the best way to study how to draw female (other than coming to my site : ) )

Anyway, I believe drawing women should not be static, it should flow with curve, movement, and grace. To represent a female form well enough to capture the audiences, in sketching, drawing, and painting woman and girl alike is one of the most difficult thing every artist has to solve.
Sorry kids! There is no secret, no short cut, fast track (you can may be cheat!) but to be good at it just practice careful observation and keep drawing and drawing and drawing.

    Bro, if you are looking on the right column of the blog, you will have all the info. They are all there, look around!

    I use gimp and photoshop cs5-6 (It’s very common among professional artists in video game productions)
    Gimp is FREE goto to download
    Also useful to get a tablet, to avoid wrist injury using mouse to draw or paint. Using mouse to draw can cause Repetitive strain injury (RSI). Because Mouse isn’t made for drawing. I rather use pencil or paint brushes.
    I use Wacom intuo 3 medium, but Wacom Bamboo would do just fine if you aren’t serious.
    As for hardware I have Dell XPS desktop and Mac mini as main work stations.
