Proportions Guide by FOERVRAENGD Proportions Guide by FOERVRAENGD
This is a little bonus with all the stuff I couldn't fit in the first part of Understanding Anatomy:

This is just a plain guide over the 8-head measurement which is commonly used in art. Many of you asked me about drawing shorter people and kids, wondering if they also had a 8-head ratio.

This is the answer (no babies don't have 8 heads).

I especially thank :iconsomarlidr: for the information about the ratio of the spine. I wouldn't have noticed this if it weren't for you :heart:

This looks a lot like a page from "figure drawing for all it's worth" by Andrew Loomis

the width is just as important as the height!! the shoulders should be at least 2-2.5 heads wide

Thank you for this reply! I started to understand more about the 8-head method and hope that I will soon learn about the rest...
