Powerpuff Tutorial, Page 13 by GeoffNET Powerpuff Tutorial, Page 13 by GeoffNET

Well, well, well, the long-awaited new page of the tutorial comes complete with a new volunteer!

I'd had the idea to make Bubbles the model while Blossom was... ... away for some time now; what stopped me from making this page for so long was how to approach the idea of where the body meets the head. Then it hit me: the neck. We may never see it, but as a joint, it still needs to exist, so I began visualizing it with some of my past drawings, figuring out how to convey its presence without drawing it. I finally settled on picturing its two endpoints: one above the shoulders, and the other where it would "connect" with the head. This last endpoint can be hard to picture, but if you browse around, you may be able to see how it placing it where I've shown makes sense.

Remember that for standing or leaning poses, the head's weight needs to be supported by the body, otherwise she'll fall over. This is done by ensuring the centre point of the head lies somewhere between the two widest points of contact with the floor (usually the two feet). In Blossom Jumps into Action, for example, the two widest points are her back leg and her front arm, and you can see that the head's centre is horizontally between these two points.

Gasp, a new model? :meow: Well this is unexpected!

 

I hadn't though about their necks too much before, but that's a good way to explain how the body's supposed to connect to the head. I'll have to keep that in mind ;p

Yup; figured Blossom could use a breather for a bit. ;p

I'd never really tried to "define" the neck as this page does, but I try to visualize it whenever I'm drawing.  It always helps to make sure the head doesn't look like it's bending in an impossible way. ^^;
