Proportions: 7.5 Heads by theThirdCartel Proportions: 7.5 Heads by theThirdCartel
Seven and a half heads can look more realistic than eight; guess not everyone is endowed with ideal proportions. ;-)

Very gratifying to experience how the limbs fit together like puzzle pieces simply by keeping some simple numbers in mind.

Dang, this point technique really helped me out. I was torturing myself for a while with proportions, i even had a similar idea to this at some point but forgot to test it out :snowing:.

It really helps to simplify the length of forms to heads like this and then just place some dots in the right proportions to connect.

Glad to hear. 8-) There are many ways to establish proportion, but this one is very easy to remember.

Right now im at the point where i just need to get down some basic proportions to not distort the character too much. Like you said, it's very satisfying to get it right for a change :thumbsup:

I'm working on anatomy myself, so don't know how much help I can offer. All my notes are here: [link] ; perhaps you'll find them useful. 8-)

They are very nice but to me, they're too.... Stiff. Well, I'm studying to become a cartoonist so my anatomy preferences will be different from yours. I appreciate it though. Do you know any cartoonists who reply to comments? (You'd be surprised to how many ignore comment :( )
