thanks,
none of those are my drawings
just scans from my "library". I own few old soviet anatomy, drawing and painting books for beginners (from 1950-1960).

i put those online so i could easily use references straight from browser anyplace anytime.
actually i almost never do...like i never learned to use calendar.

hi, here are some of my old proportion studies.. inspired by an anatomy book from gottfried bammes "die gestalt des menschen"

i didnt spend too much attention on the gender at that time .. but it was a lot of fun using the different materials..
looking at the figures.. hmm.. i think im more of a "women" painter





maybe this is useful

This is an important measurement also known as the 5-eye line.

Unlike full heads, this unit hits a lot of important bony landmarks.

It is the distance from top of head to just under nose.

Another one takes you to the pit of the neck.

Another one takes you to the points of the ribcage.

Another one takes you to the pelvic points.

It is the width of a head.

It is the length of a sternum.

It is the length of a scapula.

It is the length of a clavicle.

Two of them make a humerus; the lower arm is 80% of this.

Three of them make a femur; the lower leg is 80% of this.

It is a handy little measuring tool that I try to make the basis of all my judgements of figure proportions.

Anurizm,

I highly recommend the books by Burne Hogarth, who really takes you through body proportions step by step and has the best systemmatic visual breakdown of the body I have ever seen. I don't think that people should actually end up drawing in Hogarth's style, but he is great for learning how to simplify complex form and for seeing the parts in relation to the whole. I have many of his books, including Dynamic Anatomy, His books on hands, etc. You can find his book titles in the Resources section, which I'll link in a moment. While online sources are good, it's always best to have a handy reference manual like Hogarth's great books as a ready reference.

Good luck!

Anurizm,

See post #2 in this thread ~ it has many useful links. Also, there are basically no magic formulas for memorizing proportions ~ after all, the purpose of knowing proportions is so that artists can use them in their work. I really recommend using the Hogarth books to their best advantage ~ a good exercise that helped me to learn facial and body proportions was to trace many of Hogarth's images, as well as drawings by Old Masters. I recommend this as an exercise which helps to put the feeling of proportions into one's hand. Trust me, unless you are incredibly analytical and mathematically inclined, which most artists are not (there are of course exceptions), you will not be thinking of ratios and numbers as you try to draw a hand.

Use the resources provided in this thread as well as the resources which you already have to their best advantage. Try tracing images to imprint standard proportions into your hand and memory.

Good luck!

~Rebeccak
