Female body study by moni158 Female body study by moni158
Touching upon problems I had drawing females a while back....(backs, stomach, etc)

I've learnt a few new things, ( how to portray the hip bones and the ridge along the spine )

I've covered the naughty bits so I'm not bothering with a mature filter since this is for educational purposes. ( my last one got reported because there were nipples? and some douche face tried to report it as underage nudity because the girl had small breasts? :iconimspeechlessplz: hear that! if your character has small breasts their obviously underage!!!/*end sarcasm)

Oh and please don't wine to me this time if you think the girl is too skinny.. I don't care, in fact you are more than welcome to navigate away from my page and draw your own plumper girls okay? capiche?

not bad, but your missing some transitional muscles that are basically why at some point, all womens thighs touch no matter how skinny they are. If they don't come together its because they are unhealthy skinny or their legs are spread a bit. Guys have that muscle too, its just a little i wanna say less obvious as far as how it effects the structure of the leg going into the body. At the knees peoples legs start a transition to come together. Where this happens varies person to person and can be influenced by weight but at some point before the crotch, it happens even on men. 

Its gotten to the point where girls are getting so convinced their thighs at no point should ever touch their are now things some girls wear to force that not to be so. They are messing up tendons and muscles that way... but... who am I to tell them what to do with their own bodies even if it makes utterly no logical sense besides that they have an unhealthy image of what their body should look like because of magazines or video games that forget its not just bones plus skin... its bones plus veins/arteries, plus organs and tendons and muscles... plus what is actually several layers of skin(which is why you still  have skin after a first degree burn which actually burns off part of the first layer) and why you still have skin with a second degree burn but why some third degree burns have burnt all the way through all of it(and why those require hospitalization and often skin grafts). On the one with the spine in the back bending, women only bend like that when leaning on something, and thats without any sort of issues... a normal back when you consider the way the muscles and tendons are and how gravity and all other things factor in, would only look like that in the case the lady was leaning at least partially onto something. Just... for future reference. In select cases some dancers who have highly developed muscles meant to do such contortions in dancing or in gymnastics sorts of things can pull those off, but your average lady won't ever look like that unless she is leaning on something. Most people don't have the muscles to support that sort of leaning. Not just the muscles but the tendons need to be stronger too, because point blank its just not made to happen that way. I would know, my scoliosis forces it that way to some extent... its really not meant to be that way and its really a pain in the ass to stay on ones feet continuously or at all sometimes, when bent that way. Even dancers would develop spinal injuries if they kept it like that without added support like leaning on something(the dip in the back, not the bending over is what im talking about-but yeah, if she is leaning on something thats pretty good, just not for any standing position unless your drawing someone who is contorting their body in some way such as dancing ballet as some moves DO bend things like that). 

Hope this helps.

I don't understand why people complain about the females looking too skinny. They LOOK great! I was on Kate-FoX's page the other day looking at her work, and there were like seven conversations going on.

"The girl looks like she's missing a few bones..." :no: it's ridiculous. I like this artwork style and see nothing wrong with it. Great work, btw

Sorry bout the rage, had to get that out...

Why would people want to sensor this? Then people wouldn't know that this is a study.
True artists don't get sensitive about this kind of anatomy.
However, if it was full on porn said to be anatomy, that's a different story.
LilaTheAngel Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
I don't know why you should sensor that....if little children look in their bio-books they find the very same -.-

Actually they don't...I would know....

Oh I just HATE it when those people do that.
The world is getting more censor-happy and conservative by the days.
Pretty soon, we'll all find ourselves awaiting execution because we drew characters who weren't covered from head to toe.

Putting those faces there to cover up the, um.... 'private' parts just kinda makes it more erotic.... i-in my opinion.... please keep them there, though, you probably shouldn't take them away.... >////_////< *is trying so hard not to sound perverted* *is failing SO hard at trying not to sound perverted* I should just go die somewhere.... *wanders off putting her head down in shame*
