Default IAC's Women's & Markers Tutorial - Updated 02/26/08

Hey everyone, M3_Freak had a good idea about doing a tutorial. Granted this isn't the most laid out tutorial, and it is more of an overview. But hopefully the small tips I provide will be able to help you. Good luck!

That's really cool, glad you decided to do it. I literally had no idea how you worked with markers.

Really nice wellproduced tutorial.

I don't like marker coloring so it won't really benefit me, but the effort in it is clear.

Nice work.

Thanks guys! Yeah, cruiser, I wasn't a big fan of markers either. But one day I just saw them at the art store and I was like... "Well, I sucked last time I had a set of markers, maybe this time I can do better!" It took some time, but it was definitely worth it!

Sweet now I can bust out the old coloring books.

'Oh no, eraser time!' is classic.

Ok, so here's an update to the women's and markers tutorial. I'll try to update this more as I come up with new stuff.



The first step is to always remember that curves and quick smooth lines are our friends! So here we go:

Phase 1: Draw out some simple hips. They'll look like granny panties, but remember this is just the structure, we really don't want to DRAW DRAW granny panties! And if you do, well... to each their own, right?

Phase 2: Buttocks and front leg. Again, make sure you're using smooth curved lines. This phase consists of 3 simple lines. Just try to follow the contour and direction of the guidlines.

Phase 3: Define the waist draw the background thigh and hip bone. A tip to make the legs sexier, thin out the waist, but not too much! Again just follow the contours and guidlines I drew.

Phase 4: Frontal knee and calf. I almost feel like I am drawing noodles at this point, but that's a good thing. Noodles are loose and smooth (when properly cooked) so try and make your lines loose and smooth. Follow contours and guidlines.

Phase 5: Background leg, knee, & calf. This is the supporting leg, so make sure it is set lower than the front leg when posed like this. Follow contours and guidlines.

Phase 6: Color. Try to take a simplistic approach. Think of the thighs as cylinders. Apply the same method of color to the thighs. You can do the same for the calfs, but remember that the calf has flat parts on it. I'll try to do a more in depth color tut, but not just yet.

I left the feet out because I am not happy with my current feet drawing skills. I will get back to you all when I level up in feet drawing skillz.
