Not too long to get boring, easy to understand and very helpful! Clap For me the most useful ones for me are the ones with the shape/position of the breasts when the arms go up as well as the change of shape of the buttocks while in a sitting position.
Well done and thank you for sharing this! Meow :3

For the "mistakes" section, did you grab random pics off dA or are they one artist's pictures?

yeah same as the comment before me. a thigh gap has less to do with weight and is more dependent on body shape and body fat distribution. Thin is also a vague word, one could describe thin as being simply someone with a flat stomach or someone with little to no body fat. The notion that all thin women have thigh gaps not only creates warped expectations of our body (especially with this thinspo thigh gap craze) but aslo artists FORCING the thigh gap in all their illustrations of women. (most artists on here draw "thin" women. Most artists also draw these women with thigh gaps, even if they have large hips and thighs)

I totally forgot to mention that despite all this, this si a really helpful anatomy tutorial. I fairly good on anatomy but foreshortening always throws me off. Your method for dealing with this should be helpful.

Looks nice. :)

I have a few comments though:
Not every woman has a gap between the legs though, even the very thin ones. It really depends on their hips and leg placement. Only little on the amount of fat in the thighs.
Also the pose in which the shoulders and hips are paralel (top, right) is not very likely. That pose is a bit unbalanced, this would be more likely: www.idrawdigital.com/wp-conten…

The thigh gap thing is bugging me. Its not an actual anatomical part of the womans body. "Thin" Women dont always have thigh gaps, depending on their hip size. I dont think its right to incorporate the thigh gap thing in this picture. :/

HolyElfGirl Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2014
although it is not a feature of all slender women, I think that gap is an anatomical aspect.
The proportion of the human body is not valid for any body, it is obvious that every human being has a different structure. In the tutorial does not mention fat bodies, although there are.

The tutorial states though, "thin women have a thigh gap." Thats certainly not the case for everyone. Even thin women.

Excellent, it's good to point out that the muscles the breast sits on are attached to the arm pit... I've seen many boob fails because some people don't understand how they sit on the chest, and move with the body. Heehee... Llama Emoji-10 (Shy) [V1]
