Female BTCc20 Redline by Zemael Female BTCc20 Redline by Zemael

This one truly was difficult. X____X;;; You have no clue how much time I put into this redline. I tried to keep true to your style as well. I know about the way you draw hips and waists, but I tried to follow the body types as well.

Just so you know, I used MANY references for the body types, just so I could get them right.

► 1. "Average". This body type usually have wider waists that kinda "melts" with the hips. It was a bit too close to Hourglass and Pear, so that's why I needed to "soften" her body and make it more even between her hips, waist and torso.

► 2. "Fat". Fat do have a waist. Notice how the line goes inwards. Don't make the stomach just round, it will make the woman look like she has a beer stomach or that she's pregnant. <; Try to make the knees less visible. Usually, they are more soft looking with more flesh on your bones. Oh, and a small tip. Be careful with those breasts. I'm sure that you didn't think about it, but if you don't draw that line in the middle, it will look like she's wearing some strange body-suit. xD

► 3. "Athletic". Looking trough references, athletic women doesn't have visible abs. At least not that visible. (: More things I fixed with this body shape was that I sharpened her body in order to look more athletic. I also fixed the muscle anatomies as well, giving a bit more detail.

► 4. "Buff." Now, this is the chick that has visible abs. Now, one thing though is that people don't have 8 abs unless you are even more buff than this chick. It's nearly impossible to show off the bottom two, only some very few can show them... slightly. I fixed the anatomy on the muscles. Remember that the muscle on the shoulders are supposed to be drawn in a down pattern, not up. Hope you get what I mean (just look at the differences between our two). Usually, women with this body type have two "lines" where their crotch is. They also have extremely marked knees. And try not to draw the muscles near her breasts (forgot the muscle's name) so clearly. They look a bit too much like fish scales. ;u; Draw them as if they were more smooth and curved ribs. And oh! Women with this body type are flat chested. If they have breasts (my drawing does do too), they have done plastic surgery. Most do.

► 5. "Boteroesque." I found some very useful references for this one, too. When drawing the double chins (idk if they are called that x__x;; ) remember to draw them as if they were.... plastic bags of jelly. xD;; Like, give them move volume. She isn't pressing her head back, so it should be under and around her face smoothly. And most people (looking at references) have "double" stomachs, if you call it that. The arms also gets very interesting "folds", making some strange lines where her armpits are. And the legs, don't make it so tight around her knees. (: Fat goes there too, eventually.

► 6. "Kate Moss." There is not much to say about this body type that we don't already know about. I mostly fixed the anatomy, since the way the bones was drawn (and how the skin was sitting on it) wasn't really correct. Of course, I used heavy reference here as well. And oh, yeah. Usually, if you have had breasts but lost this much weight, the skin will still be there, but no fat to fill them. So they will be saggy.

► 7. "Petite." Not much to change here AT ALL. All I changed was the anatomy on her torso that needed to be a little fixed. (:

► 8. "Pear Shaped." What I changed here Was the hips, actually. Usually pear shapes doesn't just mean the fat around the hips. Some are simply born with wider hip-bones as well, so I added that. I also added some more meat to the legs since that can be included with the Pear shape.

► 9. "Hour Glass." Not much changed here either. I only made the torso/ribs a bit wider in order to match with the hips, since it's hourglass. I also fixed the breasts a little. Naturally, they never sit that tight.

► 10. "Sex Toy." The only one I didn't use reference for. You don't really have to follow my guides on this one, I mainly followed my instincts... and I've had some experience looking at artists drawing sex toys like this. Usually the nipples are shown to the extreme, the breasts are rounder and even larger, waist is even smaller and there are no "imperfections" on their bodies. Knees are often shown as a "imperfection", no joke. :iconnotimpressedplz: And usually the arms barely have shape as well.

► 11. "Pudgy." Not much changed here. :heart: I made her a bit more round, making her look so huggable.~ I gave her some more stomach and I flattened the breasts a bit so they would look a bit more natural. I also softened her knees as well. That's all, really.

I hope this was helpful. (: If you have any questions, just ask. I'll gladly help. And I'm sorry if I made any mistakes. And typos.

It's obvious that a lot of thought and hard work went unto these. They came out VERY well. I can't draw a lick, but can see good results. These are also useful to writers, in that visualizing what you're writing about makes descriptions more accurate. For that as well, I thank you.

You should ask the original creator first, personally I don't mind. ;v;

I'm not very good with drawing a female body, of any type, and I bounced around dA for a while until I found Candy's original thingum, with the link to the red-line. These are both helpful! Breasts, how do they work?? And to think I'm female...welp, there ya go.
Zemael Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Breats are complicated. It takes a while to learn. xD
But hmm. This picture is extremely helpful -> [link] It shows different types of breasts. The "perfect" is actually very uncommon. Also, the heavier they get, the more "pear shaped" they get. Breasts won't be round unless you have a bra that pushes them up. There are different types of bras as well, and all gives a different image, or whatever. xD [link] hope that helped. (:
marching-queen Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
It certainly did! Thank very much!
Ramani-Rayne Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2011
This is great!
I have been meaning to put more work into differentiating my characters' body types, and this will be a big help!
Zemael Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist

I'm glad it helps! (:

Holy crap at least she listened to SOMEONE

Oh wow this is wonderful!!! I really love the tweaks! you did it wonders! my only complaint is for the buff type, I've read in numerous places that an 8 pack is totally possible if you work out that much.

but everything else? perfect! I love that you tried to keep it true to my style but you put in the extra work I'll tweak the body type chart when I get a chance! you really did it wonders!
Zemael Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm really glad you liked it! :huggle: And I'm also glad I was helpful! And about the buff type, of course. It is possible to have 8 pack, but it's rare (since the two lower ones are hard to actually show). However, as mentioned, it is possible if you're more buff than this chick here. Not like you need to be A LOT more buff, though! (:

Anyway, thank you~!
