Lecture description

There are many types of bodies, so to make your figures more diverse, we are going to learn all the body types, and how and where the fat builds up to create those body types. It isn't enough for a teacher to just say, here is this body type, and not explain how and why we get that body type. Once you understand the fat system and where fat builds up in the different body types, not only will you be able to draw all body types from imagination, but you will be able to invent new body types.

  • To learn anatomy for the human figure.
  • Learn the skeleton.
  • Learn the muscles and where they attach so you can draw the figure from imagination.
  • Learn all about how to draw breasts and their mechanics, how they squish, attach, etc.
  • Learn to draw skin and fat, where fat builds up.
  • Learn to draw, heads, faces, hands, and feet.
  • Putting it all together. Learning specific parts of the body on motion, to better understand some more difficult muscles.
English All right, so, we've pretty covered everything we've covered all the different muscles. We started from the, in the basic skeleton structure proportions, and we did, we went an entire skeleton in pretty great detail. Went through all the muscles where they attach, we went through different, body parts like how the arms look when the arms bent and flex and, and the different mechanics of the muscles and what happens. And how they change and so forth. So we have a pretty thorough understanding of the human body except for the skin and fat tissue. So we know that, when you have a minimal amount of fat, what the body looks like and that's what we have here. But what happens when you start getting more of fat tissue built up. Well, basically, when you start getting more fat tissue build up, the definition starts going away on the entire body. So, for example, if you were to draw this person here, and he had more. This is like, maybe a 7% body fat. If you went to about a 15% body fat. Everything would just be less defined. You wouldn't see as, as many details in the muscles. You pretty much just kinda flatten everything out. You might still have a six pack but it'd be, you know? Wouldn't be as defined. It would be, you know, more lumpy. So you just take away the darks and lights basically. And, and reshape the whole person, to be more of, you know,. Like a typical person you would see in a photograph. What we're gonna cover now though, is where fat builds up the most. So, I'm gonna make a new layer here, and I'm gonna right click on this, [SOUND] right click on the layer, and choose Layer Properties. And, I'm gonna type in the name for the layer and we'll call it fat. All right, I'm gonna use a red color for right now. And, size five brush. And I'm, I'm gonna use this to show just where the major areas of fat build up are. Now there's two different kinds of bodies. You have your, your basic apple body as they call it. This is where the, most of your body fat occurs above the body. This is more typical with a, male than a female so you would have like your head here let's say, and then your neck and so. You know, the, the body shape. [BLANK_AUDIO] Just kinda, the body shape is gonna be more, all this upper, fat will build up in this upper area here. Gonna have the belly. The, breasts might kind of sag down like this. Or have the bigger shoulders. Body fat will also build up on the arms they are not gonna be defined arms. They are gonna be, large arms. But there legs and everything, stay relatively the same. Now, of course, they are not going to be all defined and ripped or anything. Like, you'll see some muscles. But for the most part the legs are gonna be. You know, pretty much the same. They're not gonna build much fat. They're gonna gain some fat but not much. And you can also have variations of that where you have, the legs develop more fat than normal. Right, so that would be like the, what's known as the apple kind of body fat. That's where you have the upper body fat. Then you have the pear shape. This is where you have most, this is mostly typical of females, and this is where you have. The body fat is mostly in the lower part of the body. So, the upper part of the body might look rather normal. Even the breasts don't, maybe, even gain much, much fat. They don't get much larger. The arms get a little bit, you know, bigger obviously. You're gonna have more fat in arms as you get bigger. You know, it's not, it's very, it's not gonna be a typical. That you would have, let's say a [BLANK_AUDIO] I might start to get some of that, those. Anyways, it wouldn't be very typical that you would have like very, very depth defined arms and a big, you know, pear-shaped body if you gain a lot of weight. Now if you have just a little bit of a pear-shaped body, yeah, sure. And again, this is typical of females and the, the male and female version of this are a little different. But it kinda comes down like this and then you'd have the, you know, your feet so it kinda has the shaped like that kinda like a pear. [SOUND] And then you have the final body type which is more of a proportional, body fat. And here also you, you know, with upper body too you typically get a, a thicker face right away but not always. So not everyone will get a thicker face when they, when they gain weight but some people will. They'll gain this thicker face here, they'll gain the fat underneath the chin if they gain like a lot, a lot of weight. And you have the shoulders out there, and this is more proportional. I'm just showing the females for right now, we'll get into the males and everything too. So everything is kinda gaining weight together, and arms, everything. [BLANK_AUDIO] [SOUND] And so now it kinda, has a, has a you know? And also you have the hips coming down here. The legs you know, they're kinda all coming together. Everything's, everything kinda gains weight together. All right. Kind of like that. The arms are a little short. So, I left that, should be even longer, but I'm just trying to show the different types of bodies, right. So, where do, or where does the, body fat build up, mostly. Depending on the type of person these you know, these areas can be selected differently but based on those different body types. But the places where body fat builds up the most, like that is you have some places where, there's just not much body fat no matter how much you, how big you get, you're not gonna get much body fat here in the ankles. That's just not gonna happen. And you have to get super, super big in order for. You start to have fat build up here where it kinda, almost, hangs over the ankles like that. Like we're talking really big like, you know, 400 lbs big. Maybe even 300 lbs. It depends on, on the body type and how short the person is and stuff like that. Right, so the major areas of fat build up then. Is in the butt area. Right, so this pocket here, this is a major build up of fat tissue. [BLANK_AUDIO] And we'll do the same for the man and it's also true for the man. Although the man usually won't. Build, it depends on body type. I have the kind of body type where, the fat build up does build, build up in my buttocks. And it kinda, starts building up there. First there and my inner thighs. It starts building up there first before it even starts building up on my stomach. So I have to like, lose almost all of my stomach and love handles before that fat will go away. And it's just, I have the, not quite a pear shape. But, closer to a pear's, between a proportional body fat and pear shape. Is kinda how my body fat is, is, distrib, distributed. But anyway let's see here, so that's the, that's one part there we have a major fat build up. And then parts you have major fat build up are the inside of your thighs, right in here. Not so much. The rest of the thighs, mainly the inside of the thigh, that's the, that's the part of the thigh that, that's gonna build up fat first usually. And that's the hard, hardest part to lose, you have to, get really fit for that, that fat to start going away. Other areas of major fat build up are your love handles. [BLANK_AUDIO] All right, in here, this whole area. Major area for fat buildup on both guys and girls and again, the distribution of how this fits together, like what parts get bigger most is gonna determine what kind of body type you have. Another area is in the breast area. This is both true of men and women. You have, the mammary glands, but you also have, that tissue that can build up outside of that. And men typically, their, their breasts are gonna kinda, you know, it's gonna make their breasts kinda shape down more like this as they gain. Fat in that area. Kinda makes their boobs hang down a little bit. Right, so these are major areas so far. Of course another, major, major area is your stomach, all this area here. Depending on the body type, if you're more of a pear body type, your stomach muscle, your, you'll gain weight. [SOUND] It's being stupid here. Click with the mouse once. Anyway, it's underneath the belly button right here in this area. Or right in here. That area right there will gain weight first if you have more of a pear type, type type body. That is, you won't really gain, fat up in this area of the body and. Okay, why does it keep doing that? This is true of me, this part here gains weight the, the least in my stomach when I gain weight. It starts off, a little bit, little pooch down here first. And I usually don't gain much belly fat actually. I can have quite a bit of fat on me and not have much belly fat at all. And my love handles build up before my, belly fat does. But like I said everyone's built different and so you can use different equations so I'm just showing you where they build up the most. And then you apply that to different kind of body types and you can also, mix those body types to have a new kind of body type. You know, let's say they are mix between upper body fat and lower body fat that's kinda where you get a proportional body. Let's say they are a mix between upper and proportional more like me. Or they are a mix between pear. Where that is lower, and proportional. And that would be more of a typical female. [SOUND] There is also actually one other kind of body fat that does occur. And this is mainly only in women. I don't think I've ever seen it in, in a man really. And that is where they have an hourglass so, they build up the fat up in this upper body here and in this lower body here, but they keep a pretty thin waist and so they get this hourglass effect. And so, you just basically take an, hourglass type figure and blow her up bigger and she's chunkier but she still has an hourglass figure. And there's also even with thinner people, there's the different kind of figures. You have the, you know, more of the Proportional body like this is more of a stick figure, not necessarily stick but you know, they're thin and they're just straight up and down, kind of person. Then you have the people that are, slightly bigger up top and then go down like this. That would be more like a, typical male or, or decent, size build of a male. [SOUND] Then you have those that more of the typical women, which would be like this and then down. And then also, you can the more of the hourglass. Where it's kind of like, basically an hourglass shaped person. Anyway, like that. [SOUND] So that happens even with the people that don't have much fat on them at all. You can still kind of have that hourglass kind of figure. 'Kay, again I gotta, show the inner. About to show the inner thighs here. Now, the, thighs in general though will start to gain weight but the inner thighs will gain weight first. With females also you'll have some build up of fat on the inside of their knees. In this area here, and also over here you start getting some fat in this area. But, this is, you have to gain quite a bit of weight. So, that, that comes later. So, I won't even mark it yet. I'll mark it with a different color. For now I'm just gonna mark the parts of the body, different types of the body, the parts that will, build the most with fat depending on body style. [SOUND] Not so much the back but, the shoulders and the triceps is a big area, where fat will build up. And this is pretty true, of men and women. [BLANK_AUDIO] And again up here on the body style, it'll determine whether or not it builds up more there or not. [BLANK_AUDIO] Right, so those are all the major of body fat. Now, with blue, I'll do the less, lesser regions of body fat that will build up, and this is only, these only start to build up when the person, usually gains a lot more weight. And so the insides of the knees there, these two muscles, you know, fat builds up, in this area here. Again this isn't so typical, but then you start to get fat, all the way around the thigh. Around the rest of the thigh. And this usually doesn't build up, until again after you've gained a substantial amount of weight then you start to get the weight around here. You'll also start to get weight, within the arm regions in general. But usually it is the upper arm. Again this is all after, you've gained the red areas first. You gain the rest of the upper arm. Guys you might gain very little. It's not as common with guys but you can gain weight in this area. And of course the rest of the thigh, [SOUND] and guys they typically have bulkier legs and so what ends up happening then I forgot to do the red, inside here. Guys are typically bulkier in the legs and so their, their legs will usually stay a lot buffer looking even though they have some fat on them, they're, they're mostly muscle. Cuz it's still, you know, the legs have to hold all that weight. And the rest of the arm mass will, gain weight. And knowing what body type you are as you're gaining weight, you do gain a little bit of weight throughout your entire body to where the definition goes away. So, if you start gaining love handles in the belly, your arms won't be defined as if you had a love handle belly. So you, naturally distribute weight evenly throughout the body, especially in the face. Oh, that's another thing I forgot to mention is, there is another part here in a lot of body types. [SOUND] The pear, the pear body type, usually the face is the last, area to start gaining weight in when you start gaining a substantial amount of weight. My girlfriend, for example will gain weight in her, her, like her little bit of in her belly area, lot in her butt, her thighs, her legs, you know, so it's more of a pear type shape, but she kee, kinda keeps that hourglass going too cuz she gains it in her breasts and stuff. And she gains a little bit in her upper arms and then her face pretty much stays the same, it, it takes quite a substantial amount of weight if her face is gonna gain weight. And so, here I'm just gonna show, you know, all this in here, will gain weight, and it is one of the first places to gain start gaining weight when you start gaining substantial amount of weight. Just depends on the body type. So we're just gonna kinda mark it all off like that. So again, it's all in the cheek area too. All down in this area, kinda flows. [BLANK_AUDIO] Actually that'll be blue. All of this area here does start gaining weight, but again it's not. Until after you gain a substantial amount of weight that you'll start getting weight in these areas. Again you do gain weight a little bit in these areas, no matter what. But for them to, really look like, at first, when you gain weight in these areas as you're gaining weight throughout the body, these areas just look like basically. Not as defined as much, you don't like, you can't really tell that you've gained weight in those areas. It just kinda doesn't look defined. Now with females, it's a bad problem with their upper arms, so. I recommend females really tone up, their upper arms you're not gonna get buff, but doing things like pull ups and curls and stuff like that is very beneficial, to keep your upper arms from looking, especially your triceps you know, to get that, the bigger, the big arms. Keep your arms, a lot slimmer, if you work them out. And if you don't even if you're gaining weight. Right, so, all those blue areas do gain weight, gradually, little by little as you're gaining weight, but you have to gain a substantial amount of weight before those parts will usually look large. Of course if you're doing characterizations you can do anything. Now, with that knowledge right there. With these maps and this knowledge, you can really start to design the, in the, initial knowledge I gave you with the three different types of bodies. Well, actually four, the upper body fat, lower body fat, and mix between upper and lower, which is an hourglass shape, and then the proportional body fat. Those four different body types, and then you know where the main fat build ups are now, you can really design any kind of figure you want, Well let's go ahead and, draw these different body types really quickly. Just to see how they look. So, what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna grab the layer. I'll grab that layer right there. I don't think I need the line layer with it. I think I just need that layer. I'll duplicate it. And really I just need, well, might as well make a new, a whole new thing to do this on. Which is, US paper size, click up here to get it double so you can, grab that layer and pull it over here. Go back over here and delete that layer, don't need it no more. Just pick this background color, keep it consistent. Oops. Well, hold on. Let me first move that layer. [BLANK_AUDIO] Make it a little bit smaller so I can go. Half and half here. [BLANK_AUDIO] All right, I am gonna go ahead and turn this down. Let's go ahead and File > Save this file. So if you wanted to, you know, have that, you know, I'll include a Photoshop file, so if you could open up Photoshop files, you can, you know, see the different layers here. If not, then, you know, it'll look, a lot different when you just have the JPG version. All right, so let's start drawing the, Let's draw a body type onto her. So, for her let's say we're gonna go with the the pear shape and, we won't make her too, you know, too thick but we'll start to add on the thickness to her. [SOUND] What we're gonna do then is I'm going to take this color. Background, adjust it to human saturation. [SOUND] You can see what I'm doing. I'm gonna colorize, and, I'm gonna lighten it. Saturation and I'm gonna pick like a red or something. And this is just to change the color so as I'm drawing over her I can see, the changes I'm making much easier than when I draw in black. And make a new layer, draw on top of it. Right, so what we're gonna do then, is everything will pretty much stay the same. So, we're just gonna, you know, to be less defined, everything's gonna start to get more thick. Like so. This is probably gonna kinda, flow together with no definition, like so. Might be a little crease here. Breasts might get a little bit, little bigger, kinda sag down more because of the weight. Cuz of that the nipples will also sag down a little bit more. [SOUND] Might be able to see a little bit of definition here. All this definition starts going away, basically is what happens. [BLANK_AUDIO] You can actually, with a, with a pear-shaped body you can still have a quite, a chiseled look to the face. And we're gonna come down to a thinner chin. V. [BLANK_AUDIO] Just doing basic, drawing there. [BLANK_AUDIO] SOUND] It's so tiny that, the drawing is so tiny it's kinda hard to, add any sort of definition. That's fine, mainly we're focusing on the body not the face. Okay, so the arm starts to gain a little bit of weight, and the upper part the lower part pretty much stays the same. But definition again is going away. You're not gonna have, like really any definition at all. You're not gonna have any cuts in here anything like that [SOUND]. [BLANK_AUDIO] This here is kinda come, that definition goes away, that curve that bump right there goes away, kinda becomes more straight. [SOUND] All this is going to become a little thicker. Even though it is a pear ti, pear shaped type body fat. You're still gonna have. You know, some fat build up in here more. And again, we're not making her too overweight right now, we're just, [SOUND] slowly adding it. This is where you have some, thickness here, it's gonna build up here and the, and the leg. Especially in the leg, because we're, this is where we're getting more into this, you know, this pear. Type body fat, kind of gets normal down here. [SOUND] And then this is where you're gonna have, you know, more, fat build up here. Love handles are gonna come out more. The legs. [SOUND] And it pretty much comes down to normal once you get down to here. The area in here changes all the definition in here changes. You're not gonna see the ribs and stuff like that necessarily. You might be able to see maybe a little bit of the rib, but all the fat is gonna kind of build up in this area. And, it's gonna kinda push. Together, with the love handles and you're gonna get some pudge in here. Even this pelvic area here you can actually gain fat in this area here, where it all becomes thicker and more bulgy. And all this can kinda, bulge out and become thicker. [BLANK_AUDIO] [SOUND] So you can see the difference. She starts bulking up but it's not, you know, it's not like a tremendous, tremendous amount. And again we're sticking with the pear. Body style for right now. This all, might gain a little less definition down here in the legs. Mainly it's the definition that's going away, it's not really getting bigger. It's mainly just definition that's disappearing. [BLANK_AUDIO] [SOUND] Oops. Like so. Now when you draw hands in proportion to the body, just in keep in mind that, about from here to here, that's the, length of your whole hand. So you just kinda duplicate that length, that's how long you know your hand's gonna be. And so whenever you're drawing hands in relation to the body, that's all you really have to remember. [BLANK_AUDIO] Then it's just knowing what kinda [SOUND]. So all right. So we finished off just the basic can shape. I'm not gonna, [SOUND] go into that much detail here. I already went through hands. [BLANK_AUDIO] Right, like that so now you can see the difference. Let's go ahead and move this, body type over here. You can see the difference in body types and how it changes the way the person looks. And of course you know, the way the, the shapes of everything is gonna also change. So let's say we have just. We'll kinda focus on one main light, kinda source is we're not be any split here. If there is, there's a little split right here, but not much. And then, you know, you're gonna have, okay, so we're gonna have a little bit of this part here. This is more kinda like a, a round shape, you know, that we're dealing with here. [BLANK_AUDIO] Yeah, so it's like. Fatty tissues. [BLANK_AUDIO] We have the build up here. [BLANK_AUDIO] So naturally, you know, the whole body is not gonna be, really defined because you're, you're gaining more, fat tissue and the fat tissue covers the muscle definition. And so my client's kinda add the main light source right here. It's kinda, bring in like this. And then there's gonna be you know, this whole muscle here and it, it's gonna have a light source to it as well. I'm just gonna kinda darken it up a little bit, kinda show a separation. The knee area and so forth. The calf. You're not really gonna have much definition, you might have a little bit. But for the most part this is gonna be treated kind of like, you know, kinda like a cylinder, right? So, there might not be much definition at all. Within the calf. It's just gonna be more like a shaded, like a cylinder. All right so you get the idea, that is how it's going to be how it is. And then, this area here as well. All this here is more, you know, more like a cylinder and, then you have the maybe some, wrinkles of fat within this area, that kind of come in. This right here is all gonna be like that, you're gonna have you main area here, where highlights are gonna hit. I'm just treating it very simplistically right now, the lighting source. [BLANK_AUDIO] All right like so. [BLANK_AUDIO] [SOUND] And the, imagine the light source, how it's gonna hit the breast. I'm just dealing with the main areas of light. You know, where, where it's gonna be hitting there's gonna be a shadow area in here because, this kinda dips down and the breast kinda continues going way up there but it, that has a little, little bit of shadow but it's lighter than, than this usually. And so, it's kinda have the light. And this a little bit darker as it comes down here. Not going into super great detail because, otherwise you know, we're spending too much time on one drawing and it's not gonna, get anymore point across by doing that. Now this right here, this all, it kinda, you know, as you lose definition. It all kind of gets treated more like one piece, you know? [BLANK_AUDIO] You don't have like really here separate, pieces of, your information anymore. Of each form. All just kind of blends together. As one form. [SOUND] Hey what's up? [NOISE]. [BLANK_AUDIO] All right, so I thought I hit pause and I answered my phone really quick. But I thought I had hit pause. So that's what you heard there was me just, answering my phone. Let's see. Up here what you're gonna have is, you're gonna have this kind of, upper area being hit as well with a little bit of light. It's gonna kinda, morph into that over there. You might have a slight break in, in here, of form even though the person has gained weight, there's still gonna be separation in this area here where that dip happens. [BLANK_AUDIO] So again just keeping it very basic, making sure the idea's understood and translates. Right, so you can see how. The character looks thicker, than the one on the left. And so all we had done is we've, we've added, we've taken our knowledge now that we've learned about the body, where, where body fat builds up the most. We decided on a body type, and we pumped up those areas the most, like the red areas that we, that we discovered. When we pumped up those areas and here we, from the front view we have, something looks like this here. Let's go ahead and take it now from the, maybe the back or even side, no let's just do the side plane this time. [BLANK_AUDIO] All right, so, as we see before everything pretty much stays the same here. And I'm on the wrong layer. Everything pretty much stays the same, in this area. [BLANK_AUDIO] All right, so we're not gonna worry about all that, we'll just add a slight, make this go quick. This all pretty much stays the same but this here, starts getting, you know, we start getting thicker here and we lose the, we kinda lose the definition, except for the elbow will still be there. We'll have a little bit of, this muscle coming over but mo, mostly it's gonna be like that. [BLANK_AUDIO] There'll be some, little bit, you know fat all the way around and the fat on, on the back and so forth. The breast will kind of come and they're, they're heavier so, they're kind of being pulled down by gravity more, being pulled across the rib cage more and then coming up this way. So that, so the nipple. So pull down a little bit. [BLANK_AUDIO] This whole area here, gets more fat tissue, it has form to it, right? So, you wanna keep that in mind when you're shading it. The ribcage isn't really gonna come across or be seen because the fatty tissues, are building up here. And then here, is maybe where you're going to have a little bit of a pudge too. And it usually, with a pear type body, it usually starts down here more, kinda comes up like that. And then, you can even see like a really skinny person with skinny arms, start to develop a little bit of a pooch there. And then we know we have the body fat, in the thighs and it's also gonna be, the back here a little bit and the love handles, all this right here is also gonna. Build up more fat. And then, it kinda, molds right into the buttocks and pulls around and, really, actually it's not gonna. It's more, the pear-shaped body, the fat tissue's gonna come down here more. And actually you can get some. And this is also true of the hourglass type figure. [BLANK_AUDIO] We kinda have the butt built up, usually, no, that's not right either. It usually, when they don't gain much weight, this body type produces just, even if they don't have much of a butt when they're skinny. If they have this kinda, either the hourglass or pear shape, if they gained just a little bit of weight like we've gained over here, not too much weight they actually get a really nice looking toosh on them. You know pretty, pretty nice like, it's like, yeah they have a better looking ass. Sorry but [LAUGH] that's still not right, I need to draw it from far away. That's not gonna see everything. I actually end up having, in my opinion a better looking. But when they're, when they gain a little weight, this body type tend do when they're like skinny. Might even be a little bit more bubbly up here as well. [BLANK_AUDIO] Kinda like that. All right, there are thighs again are thicker everywhere. And then they kind of come down to more, more normal thighs down here. The knee is gonna lose some definition. You know, it's gonna be more, wrinkly and everything. Where the fat tissue builds up. The, the calves are gonna be more, normal, they're not gonna have like definition and stuff. Just gonna do a basic shape of the foot there. And then, a basic shape of the hand. Knowing that the hand is you know, partly closed. Also, you'll gain a little bit of weight in the hand, so the hand won't be as defined. You might not see as many of the, kinda bone structures. While the really skinny person, you can see a lot of definition in the hands the tendons and things like that. So, the fat builds up those areas and they won't have them, so. All right, so you can see the difference here. And so, let's say that, you know, this whole shape here. Where the light's gonna be hitting, won't be hitting down here as much, maybe even make it darker, get rid of the cast shadow. Doing a typical photographers main light setup that we've talked about many times. This whole area here, is more, it's thicker. This is all kind of being treated like a, sort of like a cylinder in this area here. And this, will be light hitting in that area here. This whole area here though, this all becomes like, one grid, sorta. We have here, so the light, it's gonna kinda hit along here. It's gonna come down to the buttocks. It's really gonna hit that upper part of the buttocks and it's gonna kinda come over to that. Might even have a little bit of highlight come over to the parted thigh a little bit. There should be a slight break between the buttocks and the next area of the thigh. The highlight as it comes down here is gonna kinda, be like that. Gets bigger cuz it's a side more flat plain. The leg from the sides are more flat. I'm adding a little bit different lighting system than I did over there. Which is fine. This whole area kinda becomes one light source cuz we're one light, highlight all blended together due to the style of the body and then This whole front part of the neck will be, maybe we'll see a little bit of that definition there, that tendons with the muscle. Here's all gonna kinda like, one light, one form, you don't really flake up the forms as much, when they gain weight. And that's how you get rid of the definition is just you're breaking up the forms. As you break up the forms, you break up the definition. Right, so you have it. You have same kinda, like, body style but it's starting to get thicker and more pear. Of course from the side view, the person doesn't look nearly as thick as from, as from the front view. But, still, everything is, you know, added the same and the only thing I might make different is I might make her, make, make her thighs, you know, little, little bit thicker. Like that. Right now, for the back view. Again you're gonna have, some, even with the pear shape, you'll have, you know, some wrinkles coming in here. [BLANK_AUDIO] But the main area, that starts building up is here, then the buttock area, the thighs, so, we'll kinda do the silhouette first. And then you have, you know, a lot more fatty tissue here, in the buttock area. And so, again I think it makes for a nicer looking butt, when you have more fat tissue built up in that area. From the back view, you have these muscles kind of overlap here. You kind of still have that even when you kind of gain weight. It's just gonna be thicker. All this kinda gets simplified. You're not, you're probably not gonna see that cut in the leg at all. Maybe actually the, well yeah, she hasn't gained too much weight yet so, you'll probably still be able to see that, that little bit of cut right there. This one we're not gonna bother shading, I don't think there's any need. You should kinda have that figured out by now. Again, this definition right here, all kinda goes away it kinda just becomes, more straight. [BLANK_AUDIO] All right. A lot of this definition here is gonna go away as well. And so, you're not gonna necessarily see, might be able to see a little bit here, that's it, also you're gonna have fatty tissue as well, that kinda rolls across in the back. [BLANK_AUDIO] All this kinda gets bigger and straighter, as we talked about, we're gonna see that definition there though. You've seen the back part of a hand, so,. [BLANK_AUDIO] Top shoulders pretty much gonna be the same but here, all this right here is gonna kinda gain weight, like that. All right and so. Her and we're gonna kinda pull off, to this side over here. So, you can see how, you know, the person has, gained weight and mainly affects the the thighs and buttock area. [BLANK_AUDIO] I'm thinking I might have made her a little thick here, not, maybe not, it's about right. I think I might need to make, add some more thickness to the legs here. To make' em proper. Let's, and all this right here, usually kinda becomes one shape, I forgot about that. Usually, you don't have, with the pear body. As you gain fat in here that, that thing right there kind of goes away and you usually get more something like this. When you're gaining, gaining more weight like that. So, we're gonna show a more proper. There you go, that looks better. That looks more, more correct to the body, the body style we're drawing. All right, so they can still have, you know, pretty thin waists and ya know again with the pear type body you can, you can change the waist even more, if you wanted it's just up to you. You can have it to where more fat kinda builds up here. You know, they kinda, get you know, kinda, thicker. So. But it's very similar still. So, that's up to you on what you like. I think it matches better, right. And then, you're gonna shade it according to whatever lighting you know, you wanna shade according. Just pay attention to the forms. You know that, you're having the last definition in the forms here. So, it's kind been treated more like one shape. And so, if the light is typical photographer lighting set up, the main highlight doesn't come in this are. It's gonna be broken a little bit by the elbow. And then, you know, you'll have that main highlight hitting there and there. That is the main highlight in this part of the arm here. A little bit of darkness there. [BLANK_AUDIO] Like that. We have the neck, the spine, that part should be more lit up and we kinda. Showing the back tissue there. That whole part here is white, kinda lit up. [BLANK_AUDIO] This whole part is kind of treated like one cylinder now, so, the light is gonna kinda hit, all along here. And then, here at this lower part of the back here, is the light doesn't hit as much cuz it's turning away from us. But it's kinda like that and then, you know, you're gonna kinda add in, a little bit of the, spinal cord and some of the definition. But for the most part it's like that and then, that little part of the highlight there. You might have more of a highlight that kinda, comes up. You know, with the, this form here kinda, blends into this form. And I'm thinking actually, no, cuz the light's coming more from the right-hand side. So, for this. That thing about the butt's coming up here and coming across like that, then this is like a separate thing and then, and then you gotta think about the the grid as it comes across like that and then you have, it comes up and around, up and around, so think about the grid, as you're adding the light source to it and so the highlights'll be hitting all like right around here. Maybe up in there like that. Again you'll have that triangle part back there. That is more dark. This part is even further away so it gets even darker, but I am trying to keep it simplistic. Then you'll have. You know, the highlight here, the back of the leg here all in this area. Maybe make a little bit darkerness here to show a separation. The calf, you know, you might, you might have a little bit of highlight coming up, like in that area here. It's beginning this right-hand side more than the left-hand side. [BLANK_AUDIO] Right, you get the idea though. Little bit, of shadow in between the legs like that. And that's pretty much how you'll do it and then you might even round, round out the buttocks even more. Try to make it look more round. You can come up with a, you know, kinda, lifts up the buttocks more. Kinda makes it pop out more towards us. Right. That's pretty much it for that type of body type. For the female, for the pear type. What we will do now is I'm gonna do the male. Need a whole separate sheet. Go ahead and delete him for now. All right, let's take the same body type. But then now let's do it to the extreme. I don't think there is any reason for the course to, do the I'm gonna separate these a little bit more too. Basically, I'm gonna pull these two over a little bit. So there's a little bit more room to the right of her to add, the other body in there. Like that, okay. I don't think there's any reason to do all the in-between stages of, of the body. So you, you can, you can like, you can take DAStudio and for free. I think it's for free. The body map where you can see the weight distribution. I think it comes with the Genesis model. And you can kinda, distribute the different body weights. In fact, let me go ahead and go through that really quick before we continue on. In fact, in case you don't know how to do this so like I got dash studio 4.5 pro, it's free you can download it for free, from their website. It comes default like this with the genesis model, content library, I'm gonna pick the female. That puts on the skin, then go to parameters and let's go to actor and we're gonna take this and turn it to female. And then as you go down here, you're gonna see, there's some universal things, like unique size, all that kinda stuff, but there's some other universal things here. Child. So different body styles, we have heavy. We have these two different kinda heavies we can add. This is more of like the beer belly, pear kinda shape that we're kinda doing right now. So, notice it just kinda, builds up so that's extreme. That's less extreme. And you can see it from the side view, it starts to build up to the, you know, belly area a little bit. You notice how this one here, which adds even further. If you really wanna, really push out that kinda body style, the pear shape. That's more still at the pear shape. And you can even go like thin, element thinness to it. And you know, it kinda, makes it look weird. But you can, you can always, when you draw it, thin out this area here more to add. [BLANK_AUDIO] You know, and he's got heavy, starts adding weight, you know, that's like, that's really not even quite of a pear shape anymore, but kinda, more like that and then like. Like so. Is that still kinda the pear body shape, but it's a really big person. That's like, that's sort of more of a pear body shape, even though it's a really big person, it's still kind of the pear body shape, it's not really evenly distributed shape, it's not a upper body fat shape. But you know, once you get really heavy, the distinctions in the body types kinda start going away. So it's just something I wanted to show. So go ahead and get rid of this and this. And if you just add, this heavy, you can see it kinda. More of a, kinda, more of a, I'm trying to get more of the apple shape but I guess this program's not really doing it. Doesn't really have that option. So, anyway you get the idea. I just wanted to show that really fast, before we continue on. Right, so now we're gonna add the pear shape, but this time to the extreme. And you can imagine, the in-between. It's like, between, you know here, the extreme between here and the extreme. You can do the in-between stages of that and make it, you know, make her less or more fat. Okay, notice I'm doing a very quick type you know, trace over cuz this saves time. It doesn't need to be you know, perfect here we're just. [BLANK_AUDIO] The face might begin to round out a little bit, when they start gaining more weight like this, you know, in the pear shape. The face might round out a little bit, but still not, might not look heavy. Like not like a thick, you know, not, not like a Shrek kinda face, you know? [BLANK_AUDIO] A lot of this definition will all be lost though. But it might still contain a little bit of that definition. The arms are gonna pretty much stay the same. We're gonna keep them in no definition. And, you know, the bigger arms. We're gonna make this a little bit bigger. Down here. [BLANK_AUDIO] Now that even the breast- we're still gonna kinda keep the same. We're not gonna make that much bigger. In fact, you can actually keep the breasts small, if the person actually has smaller breasts. [BLANK_AUDIO] I'm gonna kinda keep the breasts pretty much the same size just kinda sag em down a little bit more- [BLANK_AUDIO] All right, now here's again, even when you got to the extreme. You're not gonna be, pretty much more fat in this area here. This kinda stays the same. It's not until you get to down here. Now we're gonna start really plumping it out. Well not to much there yet. It's not until you get down to here. So it's like there's this break right here at the love handles and then like there's your leg fat right here. This is your love handle. It comes down. And then you have your leg, the leg fat, the woman. There's like that dip, that crease when you, when you sit down. This is the part you wanna sit down, you wanna draw the legs coming towards us, then the knee, that's how you do it. You wanna draw the legs you know coming up, they come up from, that's where they bend and now the leg's coming up and you'll see part of the buttocks down here. So knowing that's importance, so you know what part to thicken up, we're gonna really kinda thicken her out this time. So, we'll go not to, to extreme but we're gonna go pretty extreme here. It's really kinda, really kinda build this, but it's still gonna be able to see this distinctive pear shape. Even though we're gonna go extreme with the thickness. And, all that kinda just blends together into the leg and the knee, don't really gain much weight in the knee, you'll gain a little bit of weight here, all this right here, will be thick, get a nice, this will be a nice thick quality here. Even this right here, is gonna thicken up, the crotch area. Actually the leg is gonna be a lot thicker here so, it'll be blocking part of the crotch. This is not gonna be as big, but once we get out here, it's gonna be big. Remember the leg is not as thick from the front view as it is from the side view. These muscles here, gain a little bit more weight. Knee definition gets lost, a little bit more weight in the calves, but not much at all. Everything just gets less defined, a little bit bigger. [BLANK_AUDIO] And then you starting gaining weight, you know, so what happens, you start getting like the folds and the fat in here. Belly button gets kinda, you know, usually gets wider, more rounded, gain weight. And this area here, really starts pushing, the belly starts pushing out, you might even have a o, you know, an overlapping of, fat here, to where it's kinda hanging over. [BLANK_AUDIO] All right so, [SOUND]. [BLANK_AUDIO] [SOUND] [BLANK_AUDIO] Right, so this is a quick, I'm trying to think if I even made her, much thicker than I did up there. Yeah that's much of a difference, that's more of an in between stage so let's start over. Still there's something to learn from all that, but I wanna do much larger, so let's kinda loosely base it on this, here so we're gonna have like that there. All right just, you know, quickly down there. Right, now, from here, I wanna, really just kinda, emphasize this part here. So we're not gonna have- [BLANK_AUDIO] the belly fat's gonna kinda come and it, and it, with the pear shape person, the belly fat kinda comes in this kinda area here. We're gonna kinda really get this. Lay large this whole area here,gets large. It kind of comes up like this, into the breast area. It really kinda comes off like this. Get some fat in here. Kinda builds up like this. And it all kinda overlaps. And, the calves get bigger as well. More fat comes down, like that. So I'm just kinda, etching in the way it kinda would look. Kinda get this right here, and then you kinda get the other fat. You know, it kinda changes the fat tissue, comes in here in this region. And it looks more like fat rolls, then it does like a muscle, over lapping. And, then the arms might be, even pretty much the same, as we did before. So the arms can still kinda come in here with no definition and, you know, not really, be much bigger, this what, that's what's interesting about the pear body shape, you can actually see, a person female pear body shape in a car and we can only see the upper part of her body as you're looking inside of the car and she can look like she doesn't have much weight on her. And she gets out and she has these tremendous thighs and everything, but her arms and neck and everything look pretty normal. Belly button usually gets, the belly button usually gets wider. Usually gonna have some, you know rolls within this area here. And we like this. All that kinda builds up into one thing. You might have a slight separation. But I don't have any really separations from there and there, come to think of it. Well, just kinda flow together as one big shape, like this. [BLANK_AUDIO] All right, and that's for the pear body shape. [BLANK_AUDIO] And again what's what's interesting about this body type, is the arms and stuff don't gain much weight. But the lower body does. Now I'm gonna take that shape. We're gonna pull it over here. We're going to finish, the basic forms here. The, the hand, at least a, gesture of the hand. And the foot. All right so now we can see a pretty big difference between, what I had done up there. And down here this is the more extreme pear shape. You can even get, you can even get larger than this. But this is pretty large. And then we'd have the. [BLANK_AUDIO] Basic shading. Again the, this is just one simple light source and it's coming more from the right. It's above the character a little bit. To the right of the character a little bit. And then toward us, meaning bending down toward us. So that, the light's kinda, like this. The typical photographer's light setup today that I used throughout the course. [BLANK_AUDIO] And for those that might still be confused. As to what that photographer sliding setup looks like. I'm gonna open in Daze Studio again really quick and show you. 'Kay so, the lighting that we're looking at right now is dead on lighting. That is, we the camera are the light source and that's why. The light highlights around the center of every, of every form. And on, on the edges. Everything that turns away from us is darker, everything that comes toward us is lighter. But that's not the you know, best lighting source to use. Sometimes it looks okay for illustrations and stuff. But I always like to use a, kind of a, cool lighting system. And one, one of the coolest ones is a, just a typical photographer's light setup. You can have the bright light on the left or the right, doesn't matter. But we're gonna do one light. And, I'm gonna show you how it looks. Just kinda pull it to the side. Pull it up so you can see a light source. As you can see right now it is coming directly at her. What we're gonna do is we're gonna change it to where it's more coming from above. See how that's coming more from above more and the shadows are being casted downward? Rather than straight ahead? You can also go from below. And that's how you get that kinda spooky, camp-fiery look. You know, flashlight under the face look. We wanna come not directly from above, like this. We want it more toward us, right? So this means it's coming from above. That means it's coming from above. When I say it's coming from above and toward us, I mean, it's coming toward us a little bit like this. Like so. If I say it's coming rom the right. And towards us so first let's go just to the right. This is directly from the right. If I say it's coming toward us and from the right. It's coming toward us and from the right. And, then we're still coming toward us and also a little bit from above. So that right there is the typical. Photographers light set up that I'm talking about, when I talk about a photographer's light set up. Right now if the arm is kinda pulled away from us a ways. What happens is you have this darkness in here cuz the arms pulling away so the breast muscle that connect. Remember you have your pec muscle that comes under here. It connects all the way to here, connects partly here and it comes over and connects the arm and comes out. That's the pec muscle. That still takes efffect whether the person is large or not when the arm pulls away from the back of them. So, you're gonna have this, part of the skin that comes around here. That makes it part of the this whole breast shoulder area where it kinda becomes one shape. And so, you're gonna have a drop shadow right in here. And this is coming, showing that breast is coming forward in front of the arm. The darker part of the arm of course, is gonna be, all this part back here. And you might have a little bit of, like that. And then just a little bit of the highlight hitting the shoulder in this area like this. And then. This under part of the arm here. Then you'll have that part of the highlight as I had before. All that kinda stays the same. Darker part will be over here. All this part of the body here is gonna be, you know, darker. And you're gonna be able to see the folds of the skin here. All right so this this shadow is gonna define. These shapes of the, the thickness here. That's gonna come all the way down like that. Like so. You're gonna have over here, you just gonna have a thin layer of light. Like this. The main highlight area is gonna be hitting, hitting in this area here. It's gonna kinda come down, like that. So all this will kinda be more of a mid tone. And then everything in here is kind of that mid tone kinda color. You're gonna have part of the belly that's kinda. Depends how far you the. What, you want this right here to be the belly? Or you want the belly to kinda, come more right here so you can see a distinction between the crotch still, and the belly? And this right here will be the lower part of the, of the belly fat here. Again you can pull these more so if you want it to kind of, pull those across. The belly button is more wide. All right, we'll see a little bit of you know, kind of, little bit of definition in here but the, center line is a little bit. Maybe not much, but it might be a little bit there. Sure the belly button's like a, a hole within that, this kind of rounder region here. You're trying to show the shape of the form. That's what you're doing right with the light. You're, you're saying okay this is the rest of the light's coming from. And, I have this form. How's it gonna look? Again that's the dark area. We got that covered. And then you have your main light area which will be like. All right here like so, this is all gonna be kinda mid tone. Little bit like that turning away from us. We might be able to see a, a roll here the fat area come in. Have the knee area. The calves will have the, shadow coming across the knee here. Underneath the knee. Oops, a little bit over here. Show that form filling into that form. [BLANK_AUDIO] Maybe a little bit at the top part you'll have this like, kind of a fat roll here coming over the knee here. Kinda show that. So it's kinda, formed over the knee. And then all this back here is gonna be darker. Turn away from the light the most. And you'll have your main light area. [BLANK_AUDIO] All right so you can she starts to take form as we add in the, show a little part of the nipple here, in the light. And that's come down underneath, all right here. That's the darker shadow there. You might have a little bit of a cast shadow coming down into that part there. I bet any other kind of shadows. Mainly there's not much cash out there because up forms like this. And, the reason why there's not is because the body is coming, the light's coming towards us a lot as I should you in das. When that happens you don't, you get mainly form shadows. You don't get so many. I'd rather any other kind of shadows. There might be a little bit of a highlight that hits into this area here. Outside form there like that. That top, part of the breast here is gonna have a little bit of a shadow. As it comes around. [BLANK_AUDIO] This whole side of the neck here does have darker area. [BLANK_AUDIO] All this right here is kinda mid tone. Your gonna have the, main highlight here. I'm also gonna tone around in here and have your darker, your darker parts now, with, to use one light source your shadows will be very dark on one side so, all this right here will be dark. This will be the darker part, again if we use a second light source to light up the. Dark side then dark side won't be as light. The secondary light source will tighten up the shadows. Depends on how much drama you want. And, then that whole part there is gonna be hit with light. So, kinda like that. Here's where it gets interesting. Cuz you're gonna have. You'll have this light come up here. So to come into here like that. So your main area where light's hitting is here. It comes across with this. It's, it's to the right too. It's not just [BLANK_AUDIO] And you'll have a mid-tone first. Sorry, anyway. It's to the, it's to the right and toward us a little bit. So the [INAUDIBLE] see this little bit of fat roll over here as well. Then you're gonna have the dark part of the body over here, the darker shadow coming down here. [BLANK_AUDIO] The secondary roll of fat here as well. We had a little bit of light hitting that top part but this part here is gonna be, darker and it's gonna kind of, fold into the knee even. I got the bottom part of the knee's gonna be darker. Top part has a little bit of light but not that much. But it's lighter. Then you have this dark part of the leg here. This is all the dark side. Gets that darker plane. [BLANK_AUDIO] Little bit of. So over there, the highlight is still in the works. This is coming down, away from the light. So pretty much shaped like that, that's what you're gonna get. Something like that when you, add on a lot more pounds to the character as you can see. I didn't really shade that one up there, you know? As much. If I did more, you would really see. You know, the side planes like this, really coming in here. You kinda see all this more and this would be your darker shadow. Revealing the forms you can have this darker area here. Cuz it's pulling up behind the arm, coming up to that part of the nipple, coming up here defining all this part of the breast. You know, and continuing, and basically the same kind of lighting we had down below. But you know, the person is thinner. You just have that same kind of lighting on all these parts hereof the body. All right here. And so forth. But anyway, I'm doing it fast just to kind of show you how it's going to look. Not to spend too much time I wanna try to finish the pear video. The pear body shape. So I think basically. Before we do a couple poses to finish off the course how the fat will work, is we're gonna do this video will finish off the pear shape body for the female. And then we'll do the pear shape body for the male. And then we'll do the upper body fat portion that is more, mainly apple shape. For both the male and the female. You know. Slight and then more drastic thicker person. And then we'll do the overall body type, where you just have kinda like an even distribution of fat throughout the body. As they gain weight, it kinda just gains you know, it first it gains in the red areas the most. But it gains in red areas evenly, as the person gets bigger, and in the blue areas evenly. And then we'll do some final poses to take all this knowledge that we've learned throughout the course. And, go okay, now let's apply this to some cool poses from our mind and,. FIgure out how we can draw it. Maybe we'll go about it in a couple different ways. And you'll end up developing your own style and your own way of dong it. Your own way of going about the figure. Or you might start out with more of like powerful force gesture lines. And, then go from there. You might start out with more bulky shapes. I mean it just depends on, on you as a person. And, it might depend on your project you are working on, and how you decide to go about it. But let's go ahead and do the side view and the front view of this larger character. All right so let's kinda start farther away. And we know that this person is a lot bigger, so the fat tissue is coming way out here more. Like so. Now we know the legs are also gonna be a lot bigger. They're gonna fit in here like this. And all this right here, is gonna be a little bit bigger but not to much. And then this is gonna kinda. Come out to the leg. And it's all gonna kinda form together here. And then we might be able to see, a little bit of a roll there in that new muscle in that calf. I'm not gonna make the calf to much bigger actually, like that. The knee kinda stays the same the fat kinda rolls around. We'll have a roll of fat right here. Arms kinda stay the same but, you know? The breast is gonna change a little bit. Has we've been doing? We've been making, hanging down just a little bit further. Everything else still pretty much stays the same. And, you know, you can really exaggerate this more or less you know, to have of a pear shape. Just depends on how you wanna have that person shaped. And, now I'm gonna go ahead and lightly erase all that. This will be like using a kneaded eraser. Now we're gonna come back in and add in all this definition here. [BLANK_AUDIO] Notice I'm capturing everything with this, with the least amount, this is what sketching really is. It's really, you really wanna practice your sketching technic. AS far as just how you move your pencil, I really recommend doing this right here and that is to, trace over a drawing. And use the least amount of strokes as possible, to capture the form that you're, that you're tracing over. And, you're gonna see that your penmanship, if you wanna call it that, will greatly increase. [BLANK_AUDIO] So I'm gonna have the nipple more right here now. [BLANK_AUDIO] Like that. It's still gonna come up, you know, into the body like that over there. We will have some fat rolling there. Gonna come out, have the bellybutton. [BLANK_AUDIO] Show a little bit of the roll of fat over the knee. The knee is a little bit more pudgy, but not too much. Okay, let's make sure a little bit of the roll fat here and here. That's a roll over the muscle. And the muscle definition disappears and the fat definition takes over. Notice now when the person gets a lot bigger like this, the fat, the buttock kinda just rolls into the figure itself. Or into the thigh. So, like it kinda becomes more of one form rather than two forms. Right. So then, if we wanna go ahead and light this form, it's kinda be very similar you know, this whole part of the face here, is gonna be like in shadow. We're doing that same photographer set up but from the side view now. So, the light is like this, we do it as more of a square as is in the entire studio. The light's coming out, kinda like this here. [BLANK_AUDIO] And then- [BLANK_AUDIO] we are supposed to see part of the, you know, we see through like that. It's more oval. [BLANK_AUDIO] Which how I usually draw it. Kinda like that, so, it's rotated toward us, quite a bit. Oops. So it's located toward us quite a bit and, hey wait, you just saw what I did in data studio, that sliding setup we're still using. So it's toward us quite a bit and it's to the right and above the character. Okay so, we come in and we know all this right here will be in shadow, cuz of, the you have that neck muscle coming down, you have the form the neck and all the bottom part of the hair would be in shadow. You'd have the, you know, mid tone here. That part, a little bit over there and the light's hitting there. The light further comes over, it rolls around, hits part of the, deltoid here, which is the shoulder. [BLANK_AUDIO] This is kinda more than the dark side I'm working on right now. So I wanna nail that in first cuz that comes around, into the front over here. This is all, like, really dark shadow. We're dealing with one light. We can also lighten this up, to where it's not as dark, by adding a secondary light source. [BLANK_AUDIO] We might have the midtone here coming, following that kinda same shape. This isn't, you know, you can transition this more if you want it to be more painterly. Transition these tones more with just more tones. There might be a thin layer, on this other side over here, where it's gone away from the light. But basically the way the light's working in this particular image, right now. Is the edge there is being hit more with the light. You're gonna have this whole under part. The body here maybe some drop shadow. Actually I don't even think about it. We probably won't have any drop shadow of the arm. Take that. That's towards us too much really. If there's any, it's just gonna be right, right around there. [BLANK_AUDIO] Right, so you're gonna have some of the front of the breast here where the light is hitting. This whole under part here is gonna be darker. And, then that dark shadow is gonna continue, from the breast coming down here. Making the form of the, of the figure. It follows the form of the figure as it comes down, like this. And then it kinda stays on the edge here, follows that form, then the knees and you have a little bit of light hitting it here. And the, this shape, this might come down like this, and it's gonna come down here. So this is all the darkest part, where the light is not hitting hardly at all. Parts that, the part of the form that's turning furthest away from the light. And the only way we'd really see any details within that dark form of the area is if we had a secondary light source, or some sort of, at least some sort of bounce light, material close to her. Which kinda acts as a secondary light source but, then you might start to see some of the details within that shadow area. You're gonna have like a little bit of light coming through right here. This whole part here is treated like, you know, like it's a round, like we're thinking about the, we're thinking about the, shape of that torso, and the breast is, you know, laying on top of that. [BLANK_AUDIO] And so all of this right here is gonna be kinda might be a little bit darker part here. Cuz that's kinda rolling away more. You get a little bit of light, on the fat roll. It'a kinda blends in you have a whole mid tone here. That is gonna still kinda take on the form. As you can tell, the bottom part of the leg here you're not gonna have as much light hitting it. I'm not so sure that is gonna be the shape of the wrinkle. Let's change it actually. We'll pull down here, the ribcage, you have the ribcage coming in. And, then we have the, this all comes up to here like that, kinda all becomes one piece, the love handle and the buttocks kinda become one piece and then you might have a little bit of a wrinkle in here. It just depends on the, well it's gonna kinda go more like that I think. You know, you can look at, at different, you know, the pose and all that kinda stuff different fat people are gonna have. This kind of a, this is usually kind of a triangle area, but now we're having a shadow, but now we're having also a wrinkle in there. You still kinda have that same, shape where you have with the thin person. Where it comes up here. That shape you imagine when you draw. The person, that's like the leg, remember the leg comes up like that from the side view. You still kinda imagine that being there cuz that's usually the way the light's gonna hit it. So all this is gonna be kinda in shadow. Might have a little bit of light peeking through right in here. Now the buttocks are gonna be very lit up and this area here is gonna be very lit up with light. And all this right here, cuz the light's coming a lot from the right-hand side and toward us. So, not toward us enough to where there's much light on this side of the butt. More like that. Then all this right here is gonna be kind of in darker tone and then we'll have a little bit of the, rollover of the buttocks here, coming down like this. [BLANK_AUDIO] This is gonna be a patch of, light hitting down there. It's gonna be, dark or light. So, I'm kinda make it dark or light or make it like this. This is all dark light too and maybe a mid tone in here. But, there is still some definition within that area. [BLANK_AUDIO] Fat. So then we start to get the idea. That's kinda what the same body type looked like from the side view. And then from the back view. Right, we're gonna draw it first from out here, remember, all this kind of bubbles together. The butt and the love handle kinda becomes one shape here. Notice I kinda- [BLANK_AUDIO] Draw the basic shapes here, of all this. We're gonna have a slight bend here, in the, these two forms are kinda bending together. You'll see where I mean in a second as I go in and talk about it. You can still see that kinda shape there as well. And then, the thigh is gonna be large coming off of the, hip here, down. [BLANK_AUDIO] I'm gonna zoom in here. This kinda pulls into the love handle. This side here kinda pulls up like this, so. The back is you know, you're not really gonna see any of the back muscles and we'll get into that in a second as we shade it. Everything else here is gonna kinda be, like we drew before, kind of all the same. Cept' we might have a little bit of the back muscles covering on there, so you see a little bit of elbow, not much. [BLANK_AUDIO] Kinda just simplify the hand. So we're really just focusing on learning the, fat of the body, not so much pay attention to learning anything else. [BLANK_AUDIO] Right so that should pretty much do it. Take a eraser here kinda just lighten it up and and we'll come back in with better detail. In fact, I'm just gonna take this now and move her. Actually, I don't know if I have enough detail everywhere, gotta have at least gestures of stuff. [BLANK_AUDIO] [SOUND] Right so now as I come in here I'm gonna kinda. [BLANK_AUDIO] Where we have a lot of shadow, on this dip here. The person's thicker so the fat in this area's thicker, like this, you know, there's still the spine there. That spine doesn't really build up much fat, so there's still gonna be a dip there. Let's see, show that dip. By how you light, the shadows in this area. A little bit of light will be hitting this area over here, like that. You still have the dark, dark part of the figure, which is gonna be over here. It might be like a little bit of a wrinkle of fat here, so let's, show that. Wrinkle of fat like in here. There's this area in here that's gonna be like that. So all this right here will be really dark. [BLANK_AUDIO] Like so. You have this kinda mid tone here. [BLANK_AUDIO] We're keeping it simple, we're simplifying the process here. You might have a little bit of light hitting the, the shoulder area but not much. [BLANK_AUDIO] Then you have a big light hitting this part of the arm. [BLANK_AUDIO] Very thin area over here for the darkest part of the arm. That's because of the way the, the light is facing the arm, the way the arm's kinda turning toward us. So the light doesn't hit, it doesn't hit more, it hits more of the arm from this area than with the arable area in there, all this is kind of turned away from the light so it gets darker, not gonna worry much about the hand. All right like so. This is be all more mid tone. Like so. Maybe we'll see a little bit of the breast poking through that side over there. This is all gonna kind of blend together this. All right here kinda gonna blend together, like one, not really gonna see the, this difference in forms there, all kinda becomes one form. The buttock is gonna come from here, and is gonna kinda come down like this. And see, it might kinda roll off like that a little bit. Again you have the darker part, this form, coming down here and also darker part of the leg. This is all but very, very dark part here. So I'm pushing harder on my pen, in order to get this darker part here. Kind of forms into the shape there. The calf. We'll see a little bit of the indent. The knee here. A little bit of the rolling of the calf here. Still this dark part is gonna form. Actually it's in a curve and concave end here. And it comes all the way down. Like so. This side'll have a lighter form as it moves away. And then you're gonna have your highlight areas, which will be like, probably right about there. And all that kind of turns away from the light. And you'll have your main highlight, area which will be like, here. Then, so, I'll fall along like that. Everything else is gonna be kinda, shaded. We wanna really show that leg coming out there. You're gonna have some shadow here, going underneath the form. We'll have these, like, dimples here, you might have saw the dimples here, especially this body style. And all this is in be kinda shadows as well, but not, not like a deep shadow. You have some of the light coming up here on the love handles. It's gonna kinda roll right into the buttocks. Down into this area right here. Then the buttox starts rolling away from us. Now you get some interesting forms here with a overweight person like this in the fat area here. What happens then is we have, let's go ahead and just kinda put this midtone here. You have the love handle here, right? Which comes like, across right here, and because the leg is kinda turned out like this, what happens is you have this bend, right here. Boom, it kinda bends in, kinda rolls, the two forms kinda roll together. But there's a slight bend right there, then the leg comes off of that. Like that, and let's go ahead and make that even more prominent, kind of bends in like this, maybe you'll see the form rolling in this way, and then the leg. There's like a crease there, the legs coming off of that crease like that. And the buttocks here are gonna be pushed more to the side. And this, this is the side that the buttocks are gonna have a dark, dark light coming in. [BLANK_AUDIO] 'Cuz the light is to the right and above so on each form, so each leg ya know get's that, that shape to it. The dark, the dark side, each leg has a dark side to it, the darkest side because of the way the light is. [BLANK_AUDIO] We have part of the knee back there, we can't really see all of it but it kinda comes here and kinda rolls over. We kinda have the calf here and so the shadow's gonna kind of roll into that calf area a little bit. And roll across that calf, like, actually it needs to be more like this to show the calf coming down here. That's all dark. Just gonna do it fast, get the idea anyway. Their secondary, you know. I even have like the highlight areas which all in here, kinda comes like that, so all this right here will have some form, midtone forms here. There's going to be some more midtone forms here cuz the highlight area in the buttock is up there more. And like that. All this here. [BLANK_AUDIO] Until you see the form, the highlight area like that. I kinda show a little bit of that roll over form there, to come down to this. [BLANK_AUDIO] You get the idea. And then finally this arm, you're gonna have domain, highlight here, it's gonna fo, following the forms, and then bam, like that. The forms aren't as pronounced, because the person's a lot larger so you don't have as much shift in forms, with the larger person. As you would with the skinnier person. Again this side of the arm is mostly, this side of the arm is what's being hit the most with the highlight. So the highlight is more hitting all this side of the arm here like this. Right. So that covers the pear version for the female. Again, we'll cover the pear style of, of the figure for the male and then we'll cover the upper body where the upper body gains the most weight and the lower body doesn't gain much weight. This is more typical of males. But we'll do it for both male and female. We'll do this body style, the pairs style, for the male as well. And then we'll do the weight distribution where it kinda evenly just, dis, dis, distribute, distributes through the body. And we'll do that for both the female and the male, and that should call it done for understanding how, how fat works. We might do a few more simplified versions, like kind of a cartoony type version of body, of body styles just for you kinda get a sense and feel for body styles. And then finally we'll finish off the course with a few dynamic poses. To tie all of this knowledge in together. And to, and to draw these people. We'll draw a couple, kind of more muscular people. Couple like maybe, or maybe like a muscular person and maybe doing some pose. And then maybe like a skinny person that's not like muscular. They're skinny and fat. It's weird, it's like they're skinny but they have enough fat tissue to where they don't have any like definition on them. Kind of like Marilyn Manson. And then we'll do a you know, maybe some thicker, thicker people poses. And so we'll do buff, skinny, skinny defined, skinny not defined. So we'll try to cover quite a few body types and maybe do like maybe like ten poses tops of different body types. And that should really solidify the knowledge and how to go about. And I'm gonna show like a practical way of going about it. Taking all this knowledge and showing different ways of, of coming about and doing a sketch. And maybe we'll even do one sketch or two sketches from an actual model. Like a picture of a model just for, you can see well how do you apply this from my knowledge, you know, using all this from my knowledge, how do you do that and draw from life? But still draw from mind? And so basically, when you're drawing from a photograph, you're using as an inspiration and you're doing mostly the figure from your mind. Based on that pose you're looking at. You're replicating that pose from your mind, and then you're adding a likeness to that pose, going okay let's look at some angles and stuff like that, and slightly correct it. Right, so there's not much more out of the course to, to come, there's this, this took about an hour and a half, so I figured each body type will take about an hour and a half. We have two more body types to cover, oh wait, four, three more, 'cuz I also want to do the hourglass body type. So three more body types to cover. But the hourglass body type only applies to female. You don't really ever get that with a male, well I guess you kinda can a little bit I'll kinda go into that. I guess we'll cover the, I guess we'll cover that for the male too. So we got that's one, two, three, four and a half more hours to go there and then maybe a couple hours to go with doing some final poses of different body types. So I'm thinking maybe ten hours tops left in this course to go I have to record and I know it's a really long course but it covers a lot of that information. It's well worth watching and learning from.
