duuude surely your study is great but why don't you mention the source you took from half of the pictures(or more)?? yours is posted 2 months later. and your gallery speaks for itself, honestly, it's good but it is obvious to me you lack the knowledge to do such study above without taking crucial info from Nsio' tutorials: nsio.deviantart.com/art/Breast… nsio.deviantart.com/art/Breast…
please, no offense. just someone else would come up with it in a more harsh way and i am sure you do not want to be taken as plagiarist. next time you sketch\study things, refer to the tutorials you used for the study. because firstly you must do study for improving, not for page views. and secondly a lot of tutorials are a brief retell\redraw of another anatomy book which i suppose everyone finds okay, but tutorial of a tutorial is not so much, i think. but if you hide the info on purpose it makes you a criminal against any hard-working artist out there who comes up with his\her own ideas, sits half a week trying to make a single thing perfectly, editing the text of a tutprial to not sound annoying(like i do now, oh well). please, show some respect for your fellow artists. and good luck in drawing, sincerely.
update: contacted Nsio, the artist told you mentioned the source in your image. sorry, i was not really attentive. still would be nice to see the link to Nsio in the description of the study. i am sure everyone would be grateful, because Nsio has a lot of other tuts that would be useful to every artist, yet Nsio's art is sadly not as popular as your studies. sorry for trouble :\ still better to write your references into description for the sake of the help you got from the original tutorial as a gratitude to the artist.
i see, thanks. sure mentioning in the work itself is a good way, but you can also give link to the resources in the information under your work. just saying. but since Nsio looks like doesn't mind as much as i do, it's up to you
A word of warning to those who have no real-life experience with breasts:
The water balloon trick is useful to understand the effect of gravity and squishing on breasts. It may be the closest you have ever/will ever gotten to a breast; I won't judge your reasons for this.
But it really REALLY bothers me when boobs are animated as behaving exactly like water balloons. It looks silly, and is not sexy at all. It makes me laugh and cringe, not horny. Fat is denser and less fluid than water, so real boobs retain a 'pear' shape better than water balloons while still being more affected by gravity water balloons. The bounce of a real breast is more subtle than that of a water balloon.
So, to get a little bit closer to the truth, think of the balloon in this way: imagine that the balloon was manufactured with a 'corner', which is the most outward part of the boob. Now imagine that the rubber is a bit thicker than normal. Now imagine that, instead of water, it were filled with something thicker.
Reguardless of if you agree with me or not, I don't know how you could call looking up Kate Upton a "mistake" Well, just like everyone else you're entitled to an opinion I guess. Maybe you just didn't see this? : tinyurl.com/cex3xw6
That's good but I have a book of serious how to that is a little less, (tongue in cheek) , loose, with the gravitational and body positioning effects. Of course none applies to wonder woman or she-hulk.
It seems like a lot of people draw either the extreme of rigid fake soccer balls that always stay the same shape, or floppy, oily water balloons... natural boobs are usually kind of in between since they're made of dense fat, not water or silicone. The best thing to do is study from nudes with unaltered breasts.
It takes alot of practice to train your innate sense for perspective and form (a tutorial can't teach you that) and thus most just stop and continue to envy those who learned it and have over a decade of experience.
This is actually one of the most helpful tutorials I have EVER seen for breasts. They are not an easy thing to work with, especially when you're trying to draw females laying down or in jumping poses But this helped me understand more
This is pretty good, although it's only fake boobs, that (like the ones injected with whatever to make them bigger) act like water balloons, 100% real ones act a little differently, but I will say this tutorial is a good start nonetheless for anyone who has difficulty with them.
