Presentation seasoning

I had a presentation for my EALC/GWS (East Asian Lang and Culture/Gender and Women’s Studies) class this past Wednesday. I presented ‘Barriers to women’s cultural change and revolution in China’ to my teacher and classmates. In order to prevent my audience from being too bored, I included some comics in my power point slides. As to how they relate to my topic, I’ll leave that to you guys. Enjoy.

Drawing people with breasts

Women that is. (Or large fat men.) Luckily for your eyes, I’m dealing with the former.

I don’t know if people utilize “wire frames” for drawing people, but all I personally just start with a circle. For the head. I guess a frame would help out my anatomical proportions, but I’m lazy.

So first up, you have a circle. Nowadays I start every picture with one. Sometimes it looks like didn’t even need it. Like this picture below. Maybe it’s a force of habit, but I still think it helps me size things up.

Drawing people with breasts – 2

So, here’s some more. (No, I’m not drawing fat men.) Although I think I could develop faces on my own, for this post and the one before, I used a photo reference for the face. It helps to have a proper model to get the proper perspective on the eyes. You can also steal lighting schemes from photos and save yourself a lot of trouble. As for the bodies themselves, they are the products of my sick, twisted imagination. How do I find clothing/color suggestions? The outside world, for one. Time to time, an outfit will catch my attention and sometimes I’ll remember it long enough to scribble it somewhere.

Anyway, here we are. I started out with a circle again, plopped in a head of sorts, and gave a preliminary sketch for the body. You can also see some of my eye failures concepts at the top. Funny thing is, I was starting out with a guy first. I ended up with a girl. Fail. It happens. One second you’re drawing a turtle, the next you have a toaster.
