Basic Proportions by Makime Basic Proportions by Makime
Hurdurrrrr. I did something wrong. Anyway, here it is again. *u*

Uhhh, I thought it was time I made something for the community. So here's some basic female proportions for ya. 8D; It's one of those things you really ought to memorize as an artist. Try working on your proportions with gesture drawings for a loooong time. Form sorta comes naturally once you have your proportions down.

And I know these sorts of tutorials are REAAAALLLYYY popular, but you should study real anatomy on actual figures too. A chart can only teach you so much. So yeah, don't just take my chart as absolutefactplz and follow it to a t every time. There are so many different people and shapes out there, and so many different styles.

Okay, I'm going back to my hole in the ground to work on my multitude of commissions that are glaring me down. Haaaart. :heart:

Also, please ignore the fact that she looks like a holocaust victim. :( I rushed the drawing and didn't flesh her out properly.

This was very helpful. I cannot express how helpful this was. I know that you need to look at actual figures to study anatomy but this really helped me learn the basic proportions. Thank you.

And sorry if this is asking for too much, but do you happen to have a basic proportions chart for males as well?

7,5 head units that's quite realistic props for woman. I prefer to us 8 for both genders. it is ideal but in artworks looks realistic.
I think the easiest way is to use Human Proportion Calculator I am using android App, it is calle HPC : [link]
but in internet there is also free online version for [link]

Rape victim legs? What does that even mean??

And just so you know, this is what legs (especially thin ones) actually look like. See; [link] [link] [link]

Thanks for the input.
