'How To' Tutorial - Male Torso by blacky91 'How To' Tutorial - Male Torso by blacky91
Alright so this is a tutorial on male torso's. I hope you found either one or even both useful and if you ever draw something new and followed one of my tutorials you can show me the end product :) I'd love to know someone improved after reading one of my tutorials.

Is there a ratio you use specifically to ensure that they come out proportionate? I kep getting too much spce between the chest and hips, I honestly just all sorts of suck at drawing men but this tutorial is awesome. But really, any tips on the portions?

Well it depends on what sort of man you're trying to draw, what his proportions are and so forth. Personally, when I draw an average sized guy I take the width of the hips and use that length to determine where the hip starts.
If you go by a typical male physique then the hip width will be smaller than his shoulders by about the width of both shoulders, perhaps even just a bit smaller than that -so basically nearly as wide as the chest- and the width of the hip is the same length as if you start right under the chest or the height of male nipples and where the hip starts. It's just undernearth the six pack...
so as a general rule of thumb the hip is as wide as the area between the hip and bust.
Usually I try not to go under the width of the hip for the size of his stomach area unless it's a dwarf, but going a bit longer than that width is ok too quite a few men have slightly longer stomach areas than their hips are wide.
If you're still unsure the belly button is just a bit lower than the elbow if you hold it straight down and the belly button is usually in the middle of the six pack.
I hope this kind of helps, it's hard to explain with text haha.

That was EXTREMELY helpful! I know how hard it can be to put some things into text, but this is awesome and I greatly appreciate it! Men are my weakness when it comes to drawing, and I'm a visual learner (which means I benefit from physically watching how something is done in person as opposed to just seeing it and trying to duplicate without a few guidelines or steps). This just helped me with every single tutorial I've found so far, and put them all in perspective! THANK YOU!

I'm a bit better at drawing dragons and girls than I am at drawing men, but I've also learned a lot from other tutorials and studying men in general.
I am very, very happy to hear this has helped you :) though if you require more great help, try looking up pictures and tutorials of human anatomy done in box shapes rather than round ones; in some cases they are more effective for learning than the usual ones you see in text books or in my tutorials.
But good luck one way or another and I hope this will prove to be a good step into personal satisfaction in your skills :)

Hey, I don't know if you take requests (or if this even counts as a request) but if you have the time, would you ever consider making arm/leg tutorials? And if you have, could you link me please? Thanks c:

Mhmm I might actually get to those at some point :) and I'd take it more as a suggestion rather than a request ;) and sure if I ever get to that I'll let you know

suggestion! I knew there was a word I was looking for, and request was the only thing I could come up with before. That'd be great, thanks :happybounce:
