Last Friday I shared my rant on some men’s view of height to which a fellow writer replied with a quote by Johnny Depp in Don Juan DeMarco:
“One must see beyond what is visible to the eye…When I say that all my woman are dazzling beauties, they object. The nose of this one is too large; the hips of another, they are too wide; perhaps the breasts of a third, they are too small. But I see these women for how they truly are… glorious, radiant, spectacular, and perfect… because I am not limited by my eyesight… I search out the beauty that lies within until it overwhelms everything else.”
So I decide that next time I am confronted with such ignorance I plan to say “Oh, I see your limited by you’re eyesight. That’s a shame.” This rebut can and should be liberally applied.
So as promised I have finished new basic croquis templates. My Wacom Tablet decided now would be the time to go on the fritz. i.e. quit working all together. So these babies are hand drawn. I had promised…. so there was no letting you down for the umpteenth time.
After posting my curvaceous croquis I got numerous requests for a back view. And Croquis Part II still remains my most read blog post. Of course revisit it if you want to know how to draw your own 10 head fashion figure. Recently Justine Limpusparish created a fabulous template showing you how to pivot your fashion figure.

So I thought it only fitting that curvaceous be the first of my new and improved Basics revealed, perfect for all your plus size or curvy fashion designs. I’ve elongated her, fashion style, but this lady is still curvaceously delicious. Most people do not realize the average woman in the North America wears a size 14 and the average height is 5′ 4″. So most women would be considered plus size. That certainly is not reflected in our magazine images. However this week Canada’s first plus size magazine was released. Check out Dare– Thanks to Diana Di Poce. So without further ado here’s Curvaceous.
I have also redone the Basic Male and Female croquis I posted earlier. Hope you get good use of them. Please share your creations. I would love to see what you design.
This will no doubt keep you busy over the weekend. See you next week on the blog!
