Proportion systems by FUNKYMONKEY1945 Proportion systems by FUNKYMONKEY1945
Putting together proportion systems for exercises. Basically the mental manikin. It's good to have one memorized. The one on the left was developed by one of my mentors. The point is to give students a choice. Go with what works. Hope this helps.

Yes. The hips would be wider than the shoulders though. It's basically for developing a mental manikin. I liked this system the best because it was the easiest to memorize. It's a good idea to adopt whatever proportion system that works for you. It gives you something to compare the model with :)

Sorry to be such an annoyance, but would this proportions be the same for the female body?

No bother. Happy to answer questions. The proportion system I posted was the easiest to memorize and draw. The main point is to draw the mental figure until it becomes second nature. That way you have something to compare your model with. Sorry to be so verbose but yes you can keep the proportions the same for a female. :) Just keep in mind the differences in the shoulders and hips. Hope this helps. I'll be posting more figure drawing stuff soon. An old mentor and I are thinking about putting a book together on classic figure drawing. :)

Thanks a lot for the fast answer, and don't worry at all being so verbose.

This does help a lot. Keep in mind that I'm in no way pro or anything, but anyway I truly appreciate the answer. Thanks a lot, again.

If anything about that book comes up, please do inform! It's a bit hard for me to get stuff like that delivered over here, but I've been learning quite well from stuff like this, and I'd be interested about more like it.

No problem. Glad it helps. It's good to have one memorized so you have something to compare to when you're drawing different models. :P
