Powerpuff Tutorial, Page 11 by GeoffNET Powerpuff Tutorial, Page 11 by GeoffNET

What's this? A new page of the tutorial? But it hasn't been five months yet!

This is the page I've been looking forward to the most: the explanation of why Blossom has been in a swimsuit this whole time. If you know anything about drawing anatomy, you might have guessed something like this was coming. Drawing the body properly means paying attention to the proportions. The body of a cartoon character is typically measured by how many heads tall it is, and it is typically divided into two sections: the upper body, and the lower body (or legs). Having Blossom in her swimsuit was the most sensible way I could think of to portray the ratio of her upper- to lower-body heights—of course, I could have put her in her underwear, but I don't think she would have agreed to that. ;p

Anyway, when drawing the puff body, it's a good idea to mark off the standard length so you get familiar with how tall your character should be. Pick a length that suits you the most; the taller Blossom is, the older she's going to look. But always keep the upper-to-lower ratio fairly consistent. If the legs get too short, she tends to look less realistic; same thing if the legs get too long. That is, unless you're drawing an action (stretched) pose; that is an example of when to break the rules, which will be discussed soon. :aww:

Well, what do you think? Should I let Blossom change into her regular clothes now, or keep her in her swimsuit a while longer? ;p

Inside Phineas and Ferb references are awesome.

It's pretty simple: to make them older, just increase the height of the body, keeping the relative lengths of the upper and lower body the same.

To put it another way, you could keep the body the same, and change the size of the head. A smaller head makes the body look bigger, so they'll look older.

This tutorial will detail how to draw the classic design—no aging.

Sorry, but thanks for the suggestion.

Keep her in her swimsuit until you're finished telling how to draw the body. How does that sound?

that's totally the reason why she's been wearing a swimsuit :D
It reveals all the important stuff to draw puffs like a pro/ :icongeoffnet: :iconjksketchy: .

and Geoff, you could give her clothes so we'll be able to learn to make puff clothes but we all need to know how to make the shape of her limbs. like how to make the legs and arms aswell as the torso ^^

I dunno about Blossom (I don't see why anyone would be uncomfortable posing in a swimsuit, since we all show that off whenever we go swimming), but I think you should carry on! :salute:

Pretty awesome stuff.

Even though I'm already getting the hang of drawing the PPGs, it's actually nice to learn a little bit more about it, especially with Blossom. :aww:

But anyways, keep it up. Looking forward for more. :)

...Oh and I think you should keep her in her swimsuit for just a while longer.

I'm toying with the idea of having her "storm out" to go change on the next page ;p

Oh, who knows? This may be the tip of the iceberg :D
