azymic: afldksjfdslk your art is gorgeous! The way you draw figures make them feel so expressive and alive and the use of colour in all of your pieces is brilliant. I'd like to ask if you have any tips on learning to draw different body types and how to incorporate that knowledge into designing characters! sorry for the bother ;v;
as for tips for drawing different body types, there are a bunch of tutorials around that will show you how you can exaggerate proportions and alter the width of hips and shoulders to get different combinations, but there’s a lot more to it!!
when I’m trying to get more diverse with my body types, i usually try to focus on adding more body fat rather than drawing really thin people, because i’m pretty good at drawing thin people, but the usual case is that the more weight you add, the more opportunity for variety?? or at least i think so. but aside from altering body weight and proportions, i like to focus on aging also! like hunched backs or buckling knees and fun stuff like that. ahhhhhhh as for incorporating that into characters, just kind of stick with the mindset that a lot of the time, the characters body type matches up with their personalities (even if it’s not that way in real life). for example, if you have a character that’s into like reading or crocheting rather than adventuring and exploring, they’ll probably have less muscle mass. and if you have a character who likes hiking, they’ll probably have strong leg muscles as opposed to a character who likes fighting might have stronger upper body muscles. But usually, unless your character really focuses on getting proper exercise, keep the option of being heavier in mind! for me, creating characters usually starts with the body type, and then i think of a personality, but it doesn’t always have to be the stereotype!!
so i guess my suggestion would be to just exaggerate proportions, and don’t let yourself draw the same things over and over!!
