I am really excited to be uploading this next lesson because it is on something that all of us have drawn or wanted to draw in the past. Today I will be showing you guys "how to draw a bikini", step by step. The best part is, the model is wicked cool looking. She is what you call a tall type of model with an anime style face. The body is very life like but it’s not drawn in a realistic manner. As you know spring is already here which means come June, summer is going to be making us sweat, tear, and burn. One of the most popular things to do in the summer months when it is hot, is heading out to the beach or someone's pool. I prefer going to a nice salt water beach because of the waves and smooth sand. I never, ever swim in lakes or ponds because they are mainly fresh water, and as you know fresh water is static water that has a lot of fish, and other nasty things in it. At least salt water is always recycling and sort of cleaning itself out with each new wave, and new tide. If you are in good shape, and you’re a girl, there is a good chance that you will be rocking a swim suit in the form of a bikini. There are a lot of different styles, colors, and designs when it comes to bikinis, and because of this you can tweak the swim suit you are going to draw in this lesson. I guess that’s all I have to say for now, you should get busy teaching yourself "how to draw a bikini" so you can get ready for summer. Have fun people and be sure to stick around to see what else is in store.

How to Draw a Bikini, Draw Bikinis

STEP 1.

This is just a quick sketch of how the body of a girl in a bikini should look. The model to the right is drawn correctly because the body is more shapely and a lot more proportionate.

STEP 2.

The first thing you need to get done is the body. So you will start the first step by draw out the framing of each piece to the models body. Begin by making a circle for the head, and then draw out the torso and pelvic area. Next, draw in the guidelines for the face, neck, and connect the torso to the pelvic.

STEP 6.

Before you start tackling the body you will need to sketch out her hairstyle. You can choose any type of style for your bikini model but I chose the long straight hair type because that is what most models have nowadays. Draw in her shoulders and arms, and then sketch out her breast shapes. You can choose to make them any size you wish.

Add some detail and texture to her hair by sketching in light strands, and then sketch out the top of her bikini. Like I said in the description, you can draw any style of bikini you want or you can choose to leave it the way it is now.
