This is helpful, although it doesn't just give a direct explanation, it really helped me figure out how to draw abs properly, as I only new how to do a wierd 6 pack that semed out of place on my characters.

Wait.... so that means that, if male superheroes were real, they'd be built more for form than for function? Huh. I guess that makes sense when I think about it. It is a more aesthetic medium. 

Anyway, it's nice to see a tutorial that not only points out different body types and how they are affected by different types of activity (and vice versa?), but focuses more on the male body. Most of the body type tutorials I've seen on dA are focused on the female body.

This is extremely informative. I, as a former athlete, wondered why I didn't "appear as defined" as other people and it turns out I was just built differently. Thank you very much for making this.

Great tutorial! Also, looking at your "Abs are all shaped differently" section, I couldn't help but see an old guy's face in each and every one of them. So, alternatively, that section can be a tutorial on how to personify abs!

This is fascinating. I knew a lot of this stuff before, but I hadn't thought about it or seen it all grouped together and presented as a "how abs impact character design." I really like this and I feel all inspired and stuff now, thank you!
