Step by step tutorial on how to draw a back-veiw for a lady!
I've been procrastinating doing a how-to on drawing a back-veiw so I'm finally doing it.
If you're doing a fashion drawing, usually there's some detail on the back of the outfit you want to include! Here's how.
Just a warning: Some basic information will be repeated from my other tutorial, so bear with me.

Draw some small circles for shoulders. The top of the circle should align with the bottom of the neck, and the inner sides of the circles should align with the sides of the head. I drew some guidelines to help align the circles, but you dont have to if you don't want to. Connect the circles to the neck lines.
Now we get into the difference between the front and the back. Start the lines for the back roughly in the center of the shoulder circles. Extend the lines of the back down to the end of the third section. Curve them gently, starting by curving them slightly outward and then curving them inward. The width of the back depends on the build of the kind of girl you want to draw.
Allright, starting at the lines of the back, make two lines that curve outward. Again, how wide your stomache is is up to you (I wish that was true in real life ah ha ha)
Anywho, the lines should extend to half of the next section. You dont have to draw a horizontal line connecting the two lines like I did, but it may help you to get the two sides even.
Continue the two lines down to 3/4 of the section you're in and then start curving inward like so.
Draw some more ovals for the (calves?). The leg on the right in my drawing is kind of weirdly connected, but you'll want to connect them in a smooth inward curve.
The peaks of the curves of the lower leg ovals should come be somewhere around the third marking from the bottom. The legs should extend a bit into the last section.
(The circles i drew in the knee area are unneccessary. They're just weird guidelines I use sometimes for no apparent reason)
Okay so, the feet will look differently depending on the shoe's you're drawing. If you're drawing high heels, like I am, draw circles for the heel of the foot. Draw two flat ovals underneith (their bottoms should reach the end of the last section)for the (ball?) of the foot. Connect the two shapes with lines. Connect the legs with the feet with lines as well. Remember: in back view shoes will look a little weird.
If you're doing some sort of flat shoe, you dont have to draw the (ball?) of the foot because its hidden by the heel.
