Might be nice if you taught us how to draw real bodies, instead of the emaciated, unrealistic version you seem to deem appropriate. Can you draw a fuller formed leg for me? I'm still at a loss how to draw as people really are... :/

i think you’re referring to this post from a while back bc it’s been going around recently and yeah i can understand your point on them being rly skinny!! I JUST HOPE people know that a lot of times when i do these they are overly simplified/stylized drawings ?? im not trying to demonstrate spot on anatomy, just the form/shapes and how I PERSONALLY DRAW in general
SO YEAH like i’ve always said, please DON’T take them too seriously/ use them as your sole reference!!

On a side note, i don’t know how to say this without sounding rude?? But I’m not a ‘teaching’ blog and i really am not obligated to ensure that anyone knows how to draw a leg or arm etc. I answer things when they’re within my capability and when I have the time to, and even then, I honestly still have a lot to learn in terms of evERYTHING !!!!
And really, if anyone wants to learn how to draw people as they really are, photos/ real life are the best references, not my sub-par doodles 

This isn’t directed at you anon, i mean your msg isn’t rude or anything i just don’t want people to think im some anatomy resource?? bc IM ANYTHING BUT THAT LOL
