TUTORIAL: Male Proportions by Haneynozuka TUTORIAL: Male Proportions by Haneynozuka
I told you I'd do an tutorial, I told you!

okay, just wanted to say, this is not "right" or "wrong" or something, I saw many books which explained it a bit diffrent, but I think it depends on the style. this is my style, I use 7 heads.
and my shoulders are not so wide and the hips are wider, but k.

well yeah, I hope it could help a little, if you have questions, just ask!

how big is a 'head' meant to be? I have found many tutorials with this method but I don't know how big to create them. 
please reply if you can tell me.

I guess it depends how big you want your guy to be... the bigger the head, the bigger the body (just a guess)

I'm going to use this, for sure! I tend to only draw the upperish body when I do art, simply because I can't do proportions for crap. I will comment back when I have finished!

I've been looking up tutorials, and I've been wondering, is the "seven head" thing mandatory? I ask because I was checking if people do this when they're drawing for comics.
Reply
:iconhaneynozuka:
Haneynozuka Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
well it helps a lot, I think
as said, I don't really draw this everytime, but e.g. I will know how long I have to draw the arm, so I don't draw tiny tyrannosaur-arms or something xD
aaaand
well it's my style, so I use "7 heads", but there are actually people using 8 or even 6
yeah, it's not excactly "mandatory", it's like when you rasterize a head to know where to place the nose etc.
if you have problems with the height (e.g. drawing way too big heads, tyrannosaur arms, too short or too long legs) it's quite useful, I know, when I started I didn't read any tutorials, so I didn't really improved. but after learning the properties of a body and having those always in mind, the drawings will be correct.

but btw
you can draw very very masculine bodies with 8 heads, too
with wider shoulders and longer legs.
but I think kawaii 7 heads boays fit better to your style :iconheplz:

Alright...I'll do the male one, and if I have time I'll do the female one as well.

...and this tutorial is probably going to be a bit realistic rather than cartoonish, but it is easy to change it as long as you get the general idea/proportions right or similar
