Rat Creature's Journal - how to draw female comic characters (according to Wizard)...
brown_betty asked for examples "to illustrate the exactly how and why female comic characters are illustrated differently than the male." And I thought, really, what's better to illustrate these things than the books teaching the style in the first place? A while ago I posted some scans from Wizard How To Draw series on drawing female superheroes (here and here), and I thought I'd post a bunch more from the first book of the series on "How To Draw: Heroic Anatomy". As everything, it starts with the basics, i.e. proportions. The female example is similar, but slightly different, notice how he stands firm and straight, wheras she stands with her hips cocked a little and the leg thrust forward? Also notice in the direct torso comparison below, how the male one is ramrod straight, but she curves and leans just a little bit in the same pose? Now onwards to the chapter "Sultry Women". Next, Michael Turner explains "Sex Appeal". Related:  Anatomy

Simplify Human Anatomy guide by =sakimichan on deviantART Feet Drawing Feet Drawing requires you to be aware of issues such as proportions and main lines. You must also make allowance for the gender and age of your subjects. Feet play an importan part in the expression of a figure. Copying and studing the studies below will help to stimulate your faculties of observation. A man's foot is approximately 1/6th of his own body. These are drawings of male feet: A woman's foot is about 1/8th of the lenght of her own body. The widest part of a person's foot is just as wide as the widest part of his/her hand. Note the direction lines of the ankles and the toes. Make sure you get sufficient depth from the arch to the instep when drawing a foot. These are drawings of female feet: Children's feet are good to study because they have not been distorted by shoes too much. In chidren the arch of their feet is usually more pronounced. The toes are also more separated than in adult feet, givine grace to the foot. In drawing from nature, sketch only parts if the children move too much.

Art Students Guide to the Proportions of the Human Form Another mention of the book is on a page of the study of Human Proportions through the ages: Proportionslehre from the Luitpold-Gymnasium Munchen: Polycletus was a Greek Sculptor active in the late 300s and early 200s B.C., along with Phidias, he created the classic Greek style. None of his works survive but Roman copies do. He was and is most appreciated for the naturalness of his sculptures and his admiration for the beauty of the natural figure as opposed to rigorous ideals of proportion. He also used a natural shift of weight to one leg known as contrapposto which gave his works a feeling of movement. From History of Sculpture: From the Earliest Ages to the Present Time by Dr.Wilhelm Lubke - 1872: "Next to Athens, at this period, Argos appears as the central point of a second important school. It was Polycletus' Canon that formed the basis for The Sculptor and Art Student's Guide to the Proportions of the Human Form. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader (c) to view the PDF file.
