Are my characters' asses THAT big?

:iconbrandonspilcher:
BrandonSPilcher Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I've been drawing women seen from the backside more often lately, and almost every time I share these drawings on message boards, people keep commenting on the dimensions of the women's rumps. I mean, the rumps are supposed to be full, but are they really that big? I've seen real women with butts like those of my characters, for example this beautiful lady:

[link]

Therefore, even if I have trouble with anatomical proportions sometimes, I don't think my characters have unrealistically large butts. At least they're not as big as a lot of butts in other guys' art.

I don't think they're outlandish or anything, but they are quite big (:

I personally quite like your drawings. It's clear you really like drawing ^_^

I'd suggests you look at [link] to practice things like proportion and realistic poses. It's an amazing website.

Yes, your asses are far too large. You must reduce them at once!


In all seriousness I don't judge what people draw at least if its not like kiddy porn so draw women with rears as large as you want them to be.

Yeah, they are disproportionate to the rest of the body. Which isn't bad, you just need some more anatomy study, that's a common mistake. I saw a critique someone left on a work of yours and they suggested a couple of pretty nice books, I'd start from there if I were you.

Hey Brandon. :wave:
Well here's my critique. :salute:

1. Her ass is NOT too big. That is NOT the problem here. The main problem here is over all proportions. :nod:
A. Her ass doesn't fit her hips. Try to focus on the shape of the pelvis.
B. Her arms are too short. Elbow should be even with the thinnest part of her waist I think.(Or is her whole upper torso too short?) :-?
C. Neck is a tad too long and she can't turn her head around that much.
D. Hips and waist are waaay too narrow. Make them wider and show the muscle and fat underneath to give it a fleshier look. :thumbsup:
E. We see no sign of adipose fat, skeletal structure and muscle mass underneath.
F. Cheeks themselves have the wrong shape. They seem square to me. :p
G. The right cheek that's further away looks out of focus. It's further away so it should be smaller.(forshortening) Like here ---> [link] - [link] ;-)

2. There's a difference between "her ass is too big vs her ass is out of proportion"
Here's an example of asses that are actually bigger than what's in this picture but the body is proportioned with the ass much better. ---> [link] - [link]
As you can see the butts are huge. But the rest of the body connects to the huge asses correctly. :clap:

3. Like you, I love big asses. Especially the ripe juicy plump asses of many Black women. But what you have to understand is that in order to draw the ass correctly we've got to understand anatomy/physiology. The waist, hips, spine, thighs and legs need to fit into and around the butt cheek correctly.
Check here ---> [link] - [link] - [link] - [link] :iconcheerplz:

4. Now to those who say it's too big. Wrong. Everything else is off. And yes black chicks Not all! can and do have asses that are quite large. So the ones saying silly things IMO are a bit short sighted. Yes I'm black and I do consider myself somewhat decently versed in human anatomy. And I always try to learn knew things about how the human body operates. 8-)

5. Black women do tend to have bigger butts, smaller waists, denser bones, thinner longer limbs, smoother skin slightly less body fat(the healthy ones) and also there's some research I've found that many black people have an anterior pelvic tilt. Pelvis tilts slightly more forward making our butts stick out more and giving a slightly more curve to the spine. This supposedly gives black athletes an advantage in things like running, sprinting or any other sport that requires much leg work. [link]

6. Finally I would like to say that IMO Brandon you're a pretty good artist. If YOU are comfortable with your art style. Than don't change anything. But if YOU want to improve and make sexy, attractive black women that look more realistic. Then you definitely should check out the links and get deep into female anatomy. Especially black womens physical anatomy. ---> [link] - (i didn't fully read this but it might help) ---> [link] - [link] - [link] :w00t:

Definitely give you a 7/10. Could be much better but not that bad. Just needs some tweaking. But again that's up to you whether you want to improve or mot. :peace:

Hope that helps.
Peace Brandon. :salute: :wave: :happybounce:

The woman in the link looks normal, but your drawings, yeah the women have hips that are wider than they should be, but nothing horribly exaggerated to the point of inflation art. Your work is of decent quality, so just keep practicing. ;)

They are kind of, but not that much in relation to her bust line. THE PROBLEM, is her disproportionately tiny waist. Look, man I KNOW chicks with small waists are considered attractive, and hourglass figures art the thing but not LITERALLY. Look at her! she can practically wrap her hands around her midrift!

Fill the lady out, and maybe erase the hard line outlining her buttocks, go for an easier softer tapered line and the result I assure you, will look less grotesque

Look at the picture you posted in your link and then look at the tush you drew.

It IS disproportionately large. If you were to blend the curve of the butt in more with the curve of the hips and thighs, it wouldn't look like two beach balls attached to her back side. Try making the thighs and hips wider to accommodate the booty.

Actually for this particular one, on top of what you said, the whole body structure is.. impossible. She can't look over her shoulder like that unless she's an owl-human hybrid species :o
I think like a lot of artist's with a strong fetish he focus so much on the one area that he doesn't think about the rest of the anatomy. I took 10 mins and redlined a very basic figure to find out what was going on ( and how it might work) and came up with this: [link]

much, much different ( of course, one would build on the big butt fetish from proper structure :XD: )

ShugarSketch Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2012
Yeah, you're right. I knew the anatomy was impossible, but I just figured that they wanted it to look cartoony. However, even if it was meant to be cartoony the butt still looked really disproportionate. I think your redline looks great and this artist could benefit a lot from it.

I think it's also the waist that's throwing it off as well. Unless there's a corset aiding in cinching the waist, then having a waist that small only aids in making the artwork look comical and unrealistic.

ShugarSketch Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2012
Exaggerated proportions are always a reoccuring theme in art that surrounds itself around a fetish but sometimes too much just makes the picture look like an anatomical mess.

True true. I think he'd be better off looking at people who's proportions match what he wants to draw, but their bodies actually are anatomically possible for inspiration.

[link] These ones are almost comedically large.

As a member of Badonkadonks Anonymous, the photo you posted is a natural curvy size, whereas the ones you draw don't really fit. Their butts look like over inflated ballons, when even curvy bums should have a smooth shape to it.. not bulgy.
