Sample text

The fingertips should dangle at the halfway point of the upper leg when the arm is hanging straight. But these arms are bent. If you were to straighten them out, you’d add extra length, and then, the fingertips would fall well below the halfway point on the thigh. That means that the arms in the left-hand drawings are too long. They need to be shortened to the right length. No Yes There are a variety of sitting poses, so we’ll look at three popular ones on these next few pages. Note that regardless of pose, the figures hold our interest because they all are asymmetrical, even if it’s only in subtle ways.

Flexed, Anterior View There are many muscles in the upper leg that can be articulated during action poses. The most prominent of those, the vastus medialis, is defined by the thin band of the sartorius muscle, which pulls it into shape. Don’t worry if there seem to be too many individual muscles to memorize and master here; you only have to articulate two or three to indicate that the leg is flexed. This drawing shows many more for illustrative purposes. Relaxed, Posterior View The rear muscles of the upper legs are composed of two major muscles: the biceps femoris and the semitendinosus.

Female Eyes Left: The upper and bottom eyelids are used as brackets to “hold” the spherical eyeballs in place. Right: For female characters, add substantial eyelashes as well as pupils at this stage. Left: Fill in the irises with color or gray tone. Darken in the eyelashes—very dark. Right: The large white shines serve to “connect” the pupils to the upper eyelashes through the irises. Several additional, minor shines appear on the pupils and lower parts of the irises. Manga noses aren’t terribly realistic but are stylized instead.
