Part 1 of 3.

Part 2: Bras and Lace next.

It's good practice for me, and gives me a chance to draw the Agora girls more.

man those boobs are so round XP they look like basket balls

I agree with the whole "Don't run without support" thing. D: Bouncing boobs are NOT fun..Especially if they are so big, they'll give you a black eye if you run. >_<
essenceofthedark Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2014
A very good tutorial. Just one thing though, you should definitey watch this video:…

hope that helps because those C-cups up there are definitely not C-cups. I have breasts about that size (maybe a bit bigger, it's hard to tell), and I'm a G-cup (in most brands at least, since this can differ from brand to brand) :)

I agree with the boobs hurt thing! They are painful! Especially when they get hit! I've got elbowed a couple of times there and it hurted! Gladly they didn't meant to do that and apologized. Then one time I was playing basketball and someone tossed me the ball but I didn't FULLY catch it so it hit my  chest so I was just there hugging my chest for like 10 minutes.

I've heard that binding breasts can lead to health issues later on. Restricted blood flow or something like that.
klinanime Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2014
It depends on how you bind them, and is more about breast deformation. I assume you're talking about binding with wraps and not a binder.
You run into more problems binding to be flat-chested than binding for support because you are essentially attempting to squish yourself into your rib-cage. The breasts WILL be damaged if you bind often and tightly, binder or wrap.A large breasted woman trying to go completely flat will have breathing issues too and you can actually faint from it. And larger women will face more deformation than not-so-large chested ladies.
Binding for support tends to keep the breast shape because you're NOT trying to squish your breasts flat, and (if you know what you're doing) you're actually supporting your breasts in the right area. I would suggest non-elastic wraps for this. For me, I'm lazy so I just wear 2 different sports bras that support in different areas. I strongly suggest just investing in a really good sports-bra, unless you're cosplaying a sarashi.
Thejboy88 Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2014
Well-explained. Thanks.
DeviantART789789 Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2015
Ace bandages and sarashi look the same, but ace bandages treat the natural movement of the chest during breathing as swelling, and as we all know, bandages and band-aids are supposed to RESTRICT swelling. Sarashi, on the other hand, is made of cloth and moves with the chest.

I'm literally leaning on my desks with my boobs just sitting here. Like as soon as I read it, I looked down and was like, well shit people know. Anyways, great tutorial!

I know right! When I'm in science class where we sit in desks and when i sit down, my boobs are just resting there on the table lal.
SM-Dreamer Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2013

I like how you did your tutorial, it is informative and I like seeing a range of sizes.

With that said, yeah, it is true some have to wrap an arm around their chest; I often have to, and that's only on the rare occasion that I run (and sports bras never help one little bit.)

I would like to point out that the measuring method you point out does not work very well for the larger sizes. When I do it, it often says that I'm 2-3 cups smaller than I actually will fit into.

As for back strain, it also makes some women slouch to try and hide them, or just from the weight, leading to bad posture if not careful.

Emmykuna Featured By Owner May 11, 2013 THAT'S how you accurately measure for bra size :O_o:, if only I were a little less cheap so I could bra shop somewhere other than the local Wal*Mart whose biggest in-store cup size is two too small for me :ohnoes:

I'M SURE YOU LOVE HEARING ABOUT OTHER DEVIANT'S BOOBS. Seriously though, this set of tutorials is actually very helpful :icontonguewaggleplz:
NixKat Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Very interesting this could be quite useful.
Cadsu Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2013
If a guy doesn't want to understand, how much running hurts with big boobs, bind a weight around their dick and let them run with it hanging down. They will know. Oh, they will know.

When you draw and avoid drawing these kinds of things but you catch up in skill with everything else, it is really hard to find courage to practice these topics. BUT if not practiced then your amazing character is brought down and more attention is actually drawn to the breasts when drawn 'incorrectly'.

Speaking professionally this is amazingly comprehensive and very VERY helpful. I have often had trouble with drawing a natural look to womens breasts shapes in my characters especially how they sit in relation to the shoulders when I draw the silhouetted curve for clothing and I must say, this has helped a great deal.

Thankyou very much :)
klinanime Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2013
I'm glad it was informative
the-Loony Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2013  Student General Artist
Yoohoo! ive decided featuring related and useful tutorials in my description [link], cause firstly my tutorial is ancient and could really use some backup and secondly your series is a perfect branch, dealing partly with the same, partly with different topics.
(ive only recently started networking here on dA and especially with tutorials i think its great to do so and help people widen their horizon even more comfortably, so i packed you there, even tho most are bound to find your tutorial even before mine. :D)

EvilVampireDucky Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
I know it doesn't effect anything, but for measuring for bra sizes(the american way at least) you dont measure high on the back, you measure right under the breasts; the bra size, say 32C, means C cup, and it's band is 32 inches :iconlazycryplz:

I agree , having big boobs hurt , I didnt used to but as I got older my back started to hurt , I'm an E ( all natural) And I never had a bra on when I was younger so untill I had DD breasts they has no support . girls T.T put a bra on.
Milana992 Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Umm sorry but aren't those sizes little off? I mean I'm c cup and my breasts aren't nearly as big as in this picture.. They're more like between a and b as you make it seem..

I agree with cradling the boobs. Running around or running up stairs without any support kinda hurts. :D
Really helpful tutorial.

Yeah, running with no sports bra SUCKS .___.
Sabhira Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
I find this quite helpful, especially for the smaller sizes. The "ridiculously large" set is all I've had to base anything on, since that's what mine look like.

GaiaDarkstar Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ha ha this is great! Heck even with a really good sport bra I still use cradling if I run. It really hurts otherwise. As for bouncing opposite I see that a lot and though it is against the laws of physics it is pretty funny.
Dizcolupus Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2011
Thank you. I found this to be very...instructive. Yeah, instructive. Yep. XD
But seriously though. this was helpful. Even in not-so-realistic art like anime, maintaining at least some sense of realism is something I find important, especially size, placement, proportion etc. It's why I hate it when people do stuff like make thighs that are thinner than arms.
clumsydemonwithfire Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2011   General Artist
haha, this is funny AND really useful! the main reason I can't draw girls is because of boobs, not because i'm terrible at making things feminine *cough cough*
thank you so much for the awesome tutorial!!!! :D
