Female Body Proportions by markcrilley Female Body Proportions by markcrilley
This is an accompaniment to my YouTube video on the subject of manga female body proportions. You can view the video here:

Please bear I mind that I'm not suggesting this is *the* way (or even a preferred way) of rendering manga female body proportions. This is just a method that works for me, and delivers a somewhat stylized--but not wildly exaggerated--final result.

Very nice! I like the fact that you didn't make her breasts freakishly huge like a lot of male artists do.

Well maybe we'll stop drawing "freakishly huge" boobs the same day you stop drawing men as weak, skinny, pushovers. *cough*Hetalia*cough* aka... Never.

Hehe, yeah. I have seen some female artists who give their characters big boobs too. Sometimes it's on accident, most of the time it is not. I think a lot of the time in anime, the only way you can tell a male from a female is in their chest, because there are so many feminine-looking guys in the world of anime.
