We're dealing with drawing body parts moving forward. Beginning with the largest area of the body, the torso and hips.

If you're new to the email or have missed out on a few, I'll be creating lessons every week and will be releasing what I can manage to get done every Wednesday.  

Sometimes the drawing work load can be high, or I just mess up and have to start over.  During those times you may get a "two parter." Otherwise expect to get a whole section of a lesson per week.

Once the whole lesson is complete, it will be posted onto The Drawing Website for all to see.  But for now, you get early exclusive access to the info.

Last week I covered the intro to the lesson. You can read that if you missed it by clicking the link below:
Here's this week's Formula:

The Chest Area

If you're going to add a bit of convincing naturalism to your cartoons, whether it's to add some pecks or breasts, you'll want to have a simple chest formula to work with.

Here's how I approach the male chest area:

  1. After deciding where to put the center of my torso, I find the area where I think the shoulders will be. I do this by drawing a shoulder line near the top of the bullet shape. I put a dot for the pit of the neck where the center line and the shoulder line connect. I also add two line on the right and left of the pit of the neck for the neck.
  2. I decide where I want the bottom of the pecks and draw a line wrapping around the form there. This is different for every character.  I also add arm tubes that connect to the shoulder line.
  3. I then connect the bottom corner of the pecks to the shoulders and end up with a shape like this. This is NOT anatomically accurate but it's a helpful guideline that can be adjusted with the particulars of each character.
  4. Now here's where it get interesting.  Starting near the bottom of center of the pecks draw a rhythm  line the travels up the center and turns before it gets to the pit of the neck.  This line travel over to rhythmically create the shoulders.  This connects the chest area with the shoulder creating a unified shoulder girdle.  Once that's done, you can add two concave lines from the neck to the shoulders to create the shoulder muscles. If the male is very muscular, these line would be drawn convex.
  5. And that's it. I have a male chest lay in.  This is enough of an under drawing to start.

But what if you want to draw a female chest area? Well, it's pretty much the same thing with some slight adjustments:

  1. You start exactly like the male chest, with a shoulder line, pit of the neck and neck.
  2. Then you draw the arms and the bottom of the pecks.  Yes, women have pecks. Surprise!
  3. Connect the pecks to the shoulders as with the male.
  4. Here's where thing change up a bit. To add bosoms simply draw two slanted egg shape on the corner of each peck. This slant varies depending on the type of bosom.  Like men's chests, not all women have the same type of bosom.
  5. Now create a rhythm line connecting both bosoms to each other and to the shoulders to make them feel as if this whole area part of one unit. Once that's done you draw the concave lines of the shoulder muscles.
  6. And you're done. You now have a female chest area lay in to draw over.

That and variations of that, is all there is to it.
