Just gonna list some tutorials that I’ve found on Pixiv that are super helpful. Warning: some of these artists also draw porn sometimes.
^ This person is awesome. They have several tutorials, for males and females, and how to draw various parts of the body.
^ Has various 3D models, male and female, in different poses and angles. Some even show muscle layouts if you want to practice those as well. Models are safe for work.
^ A tutorial on how to draw splotches in Sai (although it can really be done in any program)
^ Hands, face angles and how skirts work
^ Boob tutorial, different angles and sizes, etc NSFW
^ More boob tutorials, but ALSO a small one on different body types. You don’t see those a lot. NSFW
^ How to draw snakes, and also kimono
^ shading a lighting tutorials
^ This one is actually really cool. It shows you how to draw pleated shirts by using a paper pleated skirt model as a reference. Some things NSFW
^ Ever wondered how to draw Pringles?
^ Variety of tutorials that cover a lot of the more obscure aspects of drawing, like weight and movement that people don’t generally talk about. May get NSFW, there were A LOT and I didn’t go through them all.
^ ….Penis tutorial. For those of us that may draw them from time to time. Different angles. NSFW OBVIOUSLY
^ Eye tutorial. I think I saw this on deviantart the other day.
^ Focuses on poses and expressions
^ Mini hair tutorial, focuses on curls
^ Guns and basic gun shapes! Uh, a few NSFW things here
^ This is pretty awesome. Several tutorials on how to go about designing characters. It’s all in Japanese, but still easy to understand. Body language, height, etc are all covered. Seems SFW
^ IF ANY OF YOU WATCH SHIROKUMA CAFE NOW YOU CAN DRAW PANDA-KUN
^ Brief hair coloring tutorial, lighting etc
^ Knots! (not like… not furry knots, actual knots… like with rope)
^ LOTS of tutorials here, covering how to draw faces, to certain aspects of photoshop.

ooooh~ Photoshop I need to remember how to use you~ <3
How on earth did this never occur to me. I mean, I’ve used it for texture in some ways but not in these.
Okay so it’s not yaoi but I’d really like some feedback on this guy. Legs always give me trouble, and this picture was no exception.
Ok, legs are something I’ve always been uncomfortable with myself and to tell the truth I’ve only just started to get the hang of it, but I’ll share how I deal with them anyway because good legs are nice and something we should all strive for U_U
(Ok the curves aren’t ALL that exaggerated but like I said I’m still not the best at legs so exaggerating the curves resulted in… a normal… looking… leg…. lol)
That cyan bit there is what I mean when I talk about the flow of energy bouncing around inside the form. Legs are hard because they’re a bunch of muscle strung out over a long, thin area, so the relationship between the left and right drawn edges is really easy to get wrong (rather, it’s easier to notice when it’s wrong because there’s so little space between the two sides so there’s no possibility of your brain fudging it) The green lines represent the back and forth, opposite to opposite pattern that is a theme to keep in mind for the entire leg. The diagram in the middle shows how all the sticking out points on the inside of the leg when viewed from the front more or less line up.
Here are other angles, notice again the opposite to opposite thing with the straight vs. round. Also don’t draw your butt too high
and finally, male hips. they’re a lot subtler than female hips so it’s harder to draw them for most people. A simple way to approach would be to start as if you were about to draw female hips, but when you get to the thin part of the waist, lower the angle somewhat. This results in the widest part of the hips being down farther, probably just below the genitals. For the rest of the leg, it’s ok to just continue as if you’re drawing a female leg lol just add hair to it or something idk. Seriously though male and female LEGS aren’t different (I guess you could say male legs are liable to be beefier, but whatever then it’s just beefy female legs perhaps with hair who knows only you can make this important decision for yourself), it’s the hips that make the difference.
