yes that’s true! when simplified boys are blocks are girls are curves, which is a good place to be

wee

however, realistically both men and women are a combination of round and angular forms but mainly are defined by lots of organic curves. men are still (usually) more lean but they’re really quite similar in ways (and i’m pussyfooting around body type ofc; not all girls have boobs, but some men do soooo)

and please take all of these doodles with a LARGE GRAIN OF SALT because i’m not the best with anatomy and i did these right after coming home from class and they’re just not very good lol but still

so yeah, just keep practicing from observation! copy photos, draw from life (if you can’t attend model sessions, just draw ppl in school, go to the park or OOOH the beach and draw random folk), etc etc cos when you do that, you begin to pick up how things are structured- and you can use that knowledge when you draw from your imagination. have fun with it too, cos i personally find the human body to be one of the most interesting things to draw evah

happy drawing!
