I made this blog as a place that I could reblog all of the helpful art related posts and outfit reference in one place rather than attempting to search through my main blog's archive. I hope you find this helpful as well. Feel free to submit any resources or references that you think will be helpful as well. ^_^

Edit: This is not the end-all, be-all tutorial guide to drawing larger people. This style is more cartoon than realistic. Photo references (of professional and amateur models in the #fatspo #bbw tags) are helpful as well.
Because people often request more links to tutorials and specifically ones about drawing different body types than are usually taught in tutorials.

who wore their hair in single plait which often terminated in a wide ribbon bow.) & the pompadour.
A collection of 1920’s photographs, depicting some of the hairstyles of the time, like the kiss curl, the orchid bob, the charleston cut, coconut bob, earphones hairstyle, cottage loaf (bun) and popular styles you’ll probably never see in a period drama like extreme windblown style, the frizzy hairstyle and the Poodle cut.
