Female Body Types Tutorial by Phobos-Romulus Female Body Types Tutorial by Phobos-Romulus
Just a quick reference guide to different bodytypes of the female figure. Please consort the genius illustrators of yesteryear for more in-depth knowledge.

To answer those who want a male version of this tutorial, either I will make one soon, or my talented twin brother Deimos-Remus will make one in a similar layout or fashion.

UPDATE:
I've added a second section for adding fat. But before you got on my case about its under-representation, please consult other tutorials for adding fat. It's whole 'nother topic that can't be explained in this tutorial adequately. Same goes for muscle addition.

Sorry if this chart offends anybody in any way, this is a very boiled down view of the complexity and diversity of the female figure.

Trilies pointed me out to these charts, which better show diversity off than this simplified tutorial.

Nice job covering a good spectrum of people instead of just hollywood actor lookalikes or comic book characters.

I now love you. I've been looking forever for something like this.  There are hardly any references of women that don't look like bimbos.

Rather impressive, I I can only say, Moebius and Corben are (In my Opinion) some of the best, though they mainly uses just some idealized versions^^

Yes. Moebius is a bit more grounded in his anatomy, while still idealized. Corben's anatomy looks flat-out strange, but it still works perfectly.

Lot's of great talent in those older issues. Liberatore is another one you should definitely check out.

I will do, but I can only say, it is pretty hard to get your hand on the old stuff. They became a bit seldom. (And sorry for the bad English, I am native German)

You should be able to find back issues for pretty cheap prices on Ebay or the like.

Okay, I stand corrected: Wasn't that hard to find, but the Art of Tanino Liberatore is well... unique. Exeptionelly good, and I really feel ashamed of my own now, but it has some weird touch. I like it!

Thanks for that!
