Full body

Next, I'll show you how to draw Cloud in a full body pose. Start off by drawing the basic shape of the body. This is sort of similar to my DBZ body tutorial, in that you will use circles and ovals and cylinders to define the shapes.

However, the build of the body is a lot lighter and thinner, so make sure not to make any of the forms too large. Umm, I realize this pose looks a tad geeky right now, but trust me, it will look better when you add the details. :)

Once you have the proportions down, you can start filling in some of the details. Try to make the pants look loose and baggy around the ankles.

Next, add in the final details. Hmm... can you tell I'm getting a little burnt out? ^_~ I didn't have the patience to color this picture, so you can click here to see the original colored version. It will be a better example, anyway.
