How to Draw a Body Profile

Step 1.

For the first step just draw the two guide shapes which are for the torso guide and the hip guide. Sketch in the guidelines that will connect the torso to the bottom half.

Step 2.

Draw the neck shape and then her chest. The chest should be nicely shaped.

Step 3.

Up next, draw in the upper torso, belly and then the shoulder and arm. Sketch in the dimple to the center of the elbow.

Step 4.

Draw the buttocks, thighs and the lower parts of the leg.

Step 5.

Lastly, draw in the lining to create the body suit, and then sketch in the detailing to the stomach and chest. Erase your mistakes and all the guides.

Step 6.

Here is the line art. Now you can color in the drawing and you are done.
