Breast position.

How to draw Breasts

As the body changes position then so does the breast. It is positioned over the pectoral muscle and so with every movement of the arms and upper body the breast position slightly changes on the body. Below are a selection of sketches showing the breast position in relation to the body. Breasts-nude side profileBreasts-nude side profile leaning back


In the sketch of the model bending back you can see that as the body bends backwards the breast position changes as it is drawn up by the muscles of the chest and shoulders. Note also that the stomach flattens and the rib cage becomes more prominent.

In these sketch's the breasts are sitting naturally on the chest. Note how the movement of the arms effect the position of both breasts.
In the second sketch you can see how raising the arm lifts the breast position higher up the chest drawing the nipple up and out. Breasts frontal nude with arm raised



In the sketch of a seated nude you can see that by leaning back slightly on one arm the breast rolls back and slightly flattens into the body with the nipple pointing out slightly. Breasts-Seated nude leaning back
