UPDATE: If you wanna know more about the 8-head ratio on shorter people just click on this link:

YES I USE ANDREW LOOMIS BOOKS AS REFERENCE.
You guys should download his stuff, they are FREE ---> [link] [link] [link] <----- CLICK AND DOWNLOAD YOU SMARTHEADS.

His style is a bit old fashioned, but there's a reason why his methods still work out.

Oh and sorry if I didn't cover details like shoulders flexibility and that the body is 7 - 7,5 head units tall and not 8. READ THE GODDAMN TEXT BEFORE YOU POINT IT OUT. Srsly. It's not like I don't know that.
It's pretty hard to fill the tutorial with everything when the size limit is 18000 px, it may sound big but for a tutorial like this, it is not that much space.


Srsly. If you don't read the text in the tutorial, you'll miss stuff.

Hi! Just wanted to say, (like all the other comments) thanks for the great tutorial. With the way I learn, I will improve instantly once I start drawing people.

But I have one small issue that you didn't seem to cover. How do you determine the pivot points or axis of rotation for the limbs when you draw the circles? For example, when drawing the legs in different positions, if you put the circle in even the slightest offset from where the center should be, the leg will look like the bones were broken at the joint. The hardest part for me, and the part most sensitive to this issue is the hip joint.

"get longer paper XD"  no seriously save a copy( this will be the one you edit. keep the original) right click it  then "edit" (it will open paint) and then "crop" a suction to size click "file"  then "save as" and name it in acceding
 order (part1-2-3...) repeat. soon you'll have a book ;J hope it helps *

my question is on the diagonal lines in the one-point section. How do you ensure each diagonal is the same length?

I looked at the part about perspective with the 8 heads idea (something I've always asked myself, I can get the 8 heads just right but not in a pose) and you're actually the first person (That I've heard of) who's said something about sitting and perspective while sticking to the proportions. Thanks a ton!

This is pretty hype. One question though, why the diagonals on the one point perspective bit?
Reply
:iconenemom:
Enemom Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Because a^2 + b^2=c^2. Aka the artist is using diagonals on the point perspective to make sure the boxes containing each of the "8 heads" is at an appropriate length in between each other. Ever used the Pythagorean Theorum on a triangle?
