Just some body/ hip observations! (download for full view)
The first part are tips I've been following for a while now, while the bottom poses were random pose studies haha

maybe it'll help someone out there! My anatomy is nowhere near perfect but it's come quite a ways F2U Kaomoji | Lying Down _(:3J L)_ | iikao #1 
old one hahaha:
dude anatomy by AngelKite

Things to note:
1) elbows at rest ~align with the waist (which is where the bellybutton is, roughly)
2) wrists at rest ~align with the crotch
3) hands end around mid-thigh
4) body is about 7.5-8 heads tall, I like using 8 for stylistic purposes
5) you can see the proportions using the heads as scales
6) bone structure of hips vary between males and females; females themselves have 4 types of hip structures (which would be too technical to get into, but you can view the chart here; basically in obstetrics the gynaecoid pelvis is the most suitable for giving birth, while the android pelvis is the narrowest and most similar to what males have - described as 'heart-shaped' by doctors)

Disclaimer: I'm no expert and still learning myself, and there are many different bone structures out there! just keep doing studies and look up poses of real people to practice kaomoji set 2 14/67 

thanks for viewing!

Thanks for sharing this because when I draw a female or male character the waist down is the same on each.

If you cant already tell I only focused on the waist part.
