How to Draw Fat People

Step 1.

Start this step on how to draw fat people by drawing a circle shape for their head and then add the facial guidelines. You will then draw the torso shape. Next draw neck lines and then add the shapes for the pelvic area on the female figure. For the boy to the right you need to draw another circle shape for the belly as you see here. Lastly, draw the arm and leg lines for their limbs.

Step 2.

In this step sketch out the beginning lining for their hair styles and then draw the shapes of the necks and face. Draw the nose and then the mouth.

Step 3.

You will now sketch out the rest of the hair style for both the female and male models you see here. Once that is done you can sketch out their eyes in more detail as well as the face and chin for the fat boy. Next sketch the shapes of their shoulders and arms. And on the boy you will draw the chest which contains the nipples and breast.

Step 4.

Continue to draw out the shapes of the arms and torso. For the plus size female model you will draw out her breast and then sketch in the shape of her waist. Start drawing the shape of the thighs for the male and then detail the belly a bit more on both figures. When that is done you can move to the next drawing step which will bring you closer to the end of this tutorial.

Step 5.

Finish the arms shapes for the female and then draw out the shapes of their thick legs and or thighs. When that is done you will add some minor detailing and then move to your last drawing step.

Step 6.

For your last drawing step you will draw the shapes of their lower legs and then draw the feet which include toes and all. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one and move onto the next drawing step.

Step 7.

Here is what your chubby figures look like when you are done. Color them in and even cloth them when you are finished. I hope you liked this lesson on "how to draw fat people step by step".

I guess the last lesson that I submitted was a big hit because it already has three comments and a five star rating. This next tutorial is going to show you โ€œhow to draw fat people", step by step. I know the subject is a bit harsh, but the fact is, plenty of artists would like to know how you draw plump looking individuals. Drawing people is hard enough, can you imagine how hard it would be to try and tackle a character drawing on a person that was over weight? That is why I am submitting this lesson now. I like drawing people, which means I like drawing all kinds of body shapes and sizes. Drawing a fat person is much easier than one would think. In fact I think it might be easier to draw a chunky person because their bodies are so round which basically means drawing them would be easier and less detailed. Anyways, I hope you guys end up learning something new from this tutorial that will teach you โ€œhow to draw fat people step by stepโ€. I will be back with more fun lessons on the way so stay tuned in to see what comes up next. Peace out people and happy drawing. Oh yeah, the two figures are different in size as you can see. The one to the left is sketched out to look like a plus size girl, and the figure to the right is of a chunky or fat boy. I just thought I would let you know what their body types are. Okay, take care now, bye, bye, then.
