Breast size.

Small, medium & large breasts.

As I have already mentioned the female breasts vary so much in shape and size that I believe that there is no hard and fast rule on how they should look in your picture. It is always best to try to draw natural breasts as if you are sketching a real person as a pose to sketching breasts for a Manga or Hentai character.

Below are some examples to help you decide the size and shape of the breast in relation to your subject.

Small breasts

Small breasts.

In this first example the subject has small breasts. It is important that you position them correctly as more of the upper body can be seen and there fore it becomes more obvious if the breasts are positioned incorrectly. This is due to the gap between each breast being wider showing more of the chest. The rib cage is also more visible making it easier to make out the overall shape and proportions of the upper body. Also as there is less weight in the breasts they appear to sit slightly higher on the chest. Of all breasts I find small breasts harder to draw as often there is very little shadow or detail to work with. Also the nipple tends to be a lot smaller and is harder to define.

medium breasts

Medium breasts.

In this example showing medium breasts you can see that less of the upper body is visible. The gap between each breast becomes narrower creating the beginnings of a cleavage and the rib cage becomes less visible as the breasts are fuller in appearance and take up more of the chest. Also you can see that the upper body shape is slightly less visible nearer the arm pits. As the breasts get larger they become heavier and more elongated and so will appear to hang more on the chest.

Big breasts.

Big breasts

In this example showing Big breasts the gap between each breast disappears and a cleavage becomes clearly visible. The breast is fuller still and covers most of the rib cage and can clearly be seen beyond the outline of the upper body. Being bigger and thus heavier than the medium breasts they sit slightly lower on the chest and the nipples are larger and more pronounced .See also
