This is the next stage of our new project of Learn Manga "Create Your World" :D
The goal for today is to get a fullbody proportions model for our secondary character here.
It will be part of the charactersheet which gets a place on the wall and helps us to
refference while concentrating on the story later on :la:

We are starting with a new project of Learn Manga which shows how to create a whole
new world with its characters a story, backgrounds and more. I hope we can make it easy to
follow for you all so if there are some misunderstandings in the content don't hold back.
We are just human and a helping hand will make it better over time. Let's get started
with "Create Your World" :D

how big are the proportion lines?

As big or small as you want, they just need to be equal distance from eachother.

If you want a fairly bigh character, i would say about a inc between each line.

I use a technique similar to this (ball and stick, helps with muscle placement a lot, also shows a general representation of arm and leg bones. I trace a basic outline around the frame and then fill in the rest to make a character)

omg your stuff is sooooo helpful! I'm trying to draw on paper since it will improve my digital skills. I suck at free-hand drawing figures and stuff so this is perfect. Do you mind if I save these and make a tiny notebook for myself, for when I'm on the go?? (I swear Its just for myself!)

How much would one head be equivalent to? Would you say a head is equivalent to half a foot? I'm referring to the Imperial system of measurement, in case you're confused.

Everyone starts somewhere they feel comfortable with. I used to start with the head, and that got me off to a good start, but that was a long time ago when I was really bad with hands and feet. I've progressed, and recently found it easier for me to work on the shoulders, make the neck, arms, waist, legs, base the hand and make the fingers, then do the feet. I do the head last, because the face is what I'm not good with. I want it to be the last thing I do so that I don't think the entire paper I do is gonna be a complete mess in the end. By the time I get to the head, I actually have faith I'll get it done, and be determined to finish it.
You just need to find YOUR comfort spot and start there. If you're comfortable with it, but like some people (including me a long time ago) are not good at proportions and screw up the size of something compared to the thing you started with, then practice. People say it all the time and you never take it seriously, but it really is true. If you practice, you'll find the kinks and errors of your drawings and try your hardest to make it better in the next one. That's how you improve.
I hope this helped~

Was ich nicht verstehe...
Muss ich die centimeter von meinem Lineal 6,5 nehmen? oder das was groß nehmen dem Linial steht?

Bei einem 30centimeter Lineal stehen ja 1x die 30cm und auf der anderen Seite noch mal iwas bis 12 zahlen.
Ich hab das iwie nie verstanden wofür die 12 anderen Zahlen gedacht sind...

Sind damit Kopfhöhen gemeint??? weil man kann doch unmöglich eine 6,5cm Figur zeichnen so groß wie deine ist -_-
Die größe passt grad mal für eine Kakao karte ^^"

VIELEN DANK FÜR DAS TUT und bitte um Antwort Heart Heart Heart
