Big breasts. How to draw large Breasts.
How to draw large natural breasts.
Below are some examples of how to draw big breasts. Again it is important to remember that the breast lays over the chest muscle and runs up toward the shoulder. Breasts are made up of fatty tissue which surrounds the mammary glands and moves freely with the body. If you imagine a balloon full of liquid that is attached to the chest it will be easier to understand this tutorial. The bigger the breast the heavier it becomes and so the lower it will sit on the chest.
Just like the rubber of a balloon, the skin is flexible and will stretch when put under tension. If you were to hold the balloon up in the air the liquid will naturally settle in the bottom of the balloon. Consequently, it will draw the sides in yet still stay flexible if you manipulate it or apply pressure. This also applies to a lesser degree to the natural breast. Pictured below is a selection of sketches showing how big breasts should look on the body and their position in relation to the body.
Examples of drawing big breasts.
In this sketch, you can see that the bulk of the breast sits lower on the chest. Its weight naturally pulls on the skin above creating a slight inward curve from the top of the chest and shoulder. Like the balloon, the rest of the breast containing most of the fatty tissue and mammary glands settle naturally on the body. It is important to note also that the area surrounding the nipples ( The areola ) becomes slightly elongated as the skin stretches over the breast tissue. The general rule being the bigger the breast the greater the size of the areola.
Big breasted nude with her shoulders Back.
In this sketch of a big breasted nude, you can see that by drawing back the shoulders the breasts roll back and slightly flatten into the body. The nipples point slightly out and sit a little higher on the breast. You can see also how the Areola stretch's to the shape of the breast emphasizing its natural shape.
Woman with large hanging breasts.
In the example's below note how the breasts hang down from the body.
In the first sketch, the subject is kneeling and looking forward. The breasts hang naturally from the body and again form a gentle curve from the chest and shoulder. Notice also how the bulk of the breast sits slightly further forward and how the nipples sit up slightly.
In the second sketch of a nude bending over notice how the breast is attached to the chest. At the area where the breast connects to the body, you can see that it narrows. However, the bulk of the breast is larger and hangs down.
It is important to remember that when drawing the breast use natural curving lines and don't worry if they are not perfect. After all, no two breasts are the same and they always vary in shape and size depending on the subject. Always try to shade to the shape of the breast. This will help emphasize it and make it look more three dimensional.
As with all breasts, be they big or small the most important thing to make them look convincing is the nipples are placed. I n the next step of this tutorial on how to draw womens breasts we will be learning where to place the nipples.
