How to Draw Boobs by ragingtofu How to Draw Boobs by ragingtofu
Hey! Know what you should do right now? Check out this awesome guide made by my friend ~Sapphirelullaby on how to draw the female anatomy! Click the link! Do it now! [link]

Thank you so much for reading! I hope this guide has helped you! I find myself with very little time lately to personally thank all the people who favorite / comment on this, so please accept my thanks in advance!

NOTE: If the image doesn't load, resizes so you can't read it, etc., use the "download" link on the right side for the full image.

(A guide to drawing boobs by someone who doesn't have them... but a whole lot of experience drawing them.)

Well, here goes nothing.

A full page and two days longer than I initially expected, a (sort-of) definitive guide to drawing the female breasts. A couple of notes:

Aside from stitching the images together, this entire guide was made in Manga Studio Debut 3.0.

It's also worth noting that I pilfered images from myself for one or two of the sketches to fill space, because I'm lazy.

The original was two pages, and really, the bottom half of the (original) first page was just filler. So this guide essentially doubled (fuzzy math) in the last two days.

One styrofoam box of Chinese food gave it's life to make this happen. Teryaki and Honey Sesame chicken with chicken fried rice. You will be missed.

No catgirls were harmed in the making of this guide.

One final note: Part of the reason I made this was to get over an art block. It seems to have worked, but it also gave me a chance to try some new styles for hair, eyes, and drawing in general. I even learned a few things, like an after-school special. Hopefully it helps you just as much as it helped me.

Also, I'd like to thank the Circle, whom without which none of this would be possible. Thanks Circle! We did it!

If you like this, comment! Favorite! Watch! Visit my page! The word "shame" doesn't exist in my lexicon.

You have no idea how helpful that was. Boobs are fairly easy to draw; until you try other perspective than front >.>

accursed boobs, their mystical ways of being almost roundish and how they a shown in art of "wearing a shirt"  forever alludes me ( ene)

Maybe if you draw them naked first then add a shirt over the top? :)

I found this really helpful and look to it every time I have to draw breast on a character now, but something I'd like to know is how should I draw boobs on a character wearing a sweatshirt? Do you think you could explain in a reply and link some pictures by you or other artist as examples?

Thank you! This study is critical for the whole drawing industry. I mean, without bewbs what's the point?
BadSoldier1992 Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2015
as someone who is trying his hand at drawing, i believe this will become handy later down the line. 1 way or another... ;D

I like this... because of reasons
Sastgamer Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2015
Very interesting, its cool of you to make a tutorial on how to draw breasts in a atomically correct fashion (I see too many botched boob drawings that put $5 breast implants in a good light.) I'm saving this tutorial for when I begin Ful character drawings because its definitely help full (and obviously Atheistic)but, first I need to work out the the rest of the body though... 
QueenOfAnimie Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2015

It's so ironic that I found this right after uploading a character where I did horribly on the bewbs. LOL Maybe this'll help me get it better next time, if there ever is a next time. xD

Dunno but I have found a lot of good tutorials on the internet. better than this too.
Genbakachan Featured By Owner Edited Aug 29, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
how strange, a tutorial about drawing boobs, and the only qualm i have is how the bikini was drawn on the two larger chest sizes....

the bottom edge on the bikini is used for support. if it is not tied tight to the ribcage, the breasts would have ridges from the band (since that is where the weight falls) and there would be gaps in the upper portion of the fabric.

otherwise, that looks horribly uncomfortable
SouthernBelle20 Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
thanks, I am sick of looking at my own when tryin to draw
