Hi, my name is Jessica and I'm an artist, and today we're going to draw some bulges in clothes. So we're going to do our model. This woman is a robust woman. She's going to have sort of a full figure so that we can show some bulges. So she's got this kind of funky hair. We'll give her some curls and she is going to be wearing sort of a large dress so we're going to make her arms come around like so, give her kind of a large forearm there and she's just kind of putting her hand on her waist and then she has the top part of the dress. We're going to draw the sleeves, so sort of a spaghetti strap kind of a dress. It's going to come down like so and that's the, sort of the top part there and we're going to make her other arm kind of come around the other side like so. Now, she's got a couple bulges here so we're just going to basically draw a little bit of a curve and you don't have to make too much of a, I guess it depends on the sizes of the bulge but she's got just kind of a little bulge here and to make it come through, we're not going to draw a line all the way around, we're going to skip a little bit of space and continue it over on the other side just like that and maybe the dress comes down and maybe there's just another like slight little bulge right here, right there and then it comes down and say we want to show like a bulge where her leg is then just show a line like that and we'll have the rest of the dress come down like so. Then her other arm can be over here, other arm right there. So as you can see you don't really need to put too much into it. You just have a couple lines here and there and people will definitely get the idea that it's supposed to be a bulge. That's how you draw bulges in clothing.
