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.

Because everything has to devolve into a race conversation?

Don't get your tits in a dick, it's still a great tutorial.

I've already received my fair share of PC comments on this already is all. People complaining about weight, blah blah blah. Fat people not fat enough, fat people too fat, skinny isn't skinny, muscular isn't muscular enough...etc.

But thanks, haha.

Yeah, those were the very first comments I received after completing this massive thing.

Ha, thanks again! I can come across as a bit curmudgeony sometimes, ha.

Just would like to make a correction for the fat distribution thing. Men actually store more fat in the stomach area (beer bellies and such), women store more in the pelvic area (a bit lower than the stomach).

Awesome, thanks for the info. I'll definitely add that in sometime, as well as into an upcoming male tutorial.
