Landmarks

I've been using this little character to help me set up my figure drawings. It's a quick way to get general proportions and a sense of the whole drawing before working on the details. The dots indicate some landmarks that I look for and the diagram on the right is how it fits with anatomy.

Head Angle Diagrams



The second one is an old one (from Jul 2012) that I edited a little before starting the one above it.  The top one is done in Illustrator so that I can play around with small adjustments in the lines.

Proportion & Patreon

 
I've been working on putting together my notes on proportion. It's a new and improved version of the basic drawing course I posted earlier this year.  It's part one of a four part series that will eventually also include perspective, anatomy, and design. This is a work in progress and I would love feedback. It's the only way I'll know if I'm communicating concepts well.

If you like it and want to support this project please visit my Patreon page Patreon.com/TanHend 
It's also a great platform to give feedback. If you do the exercises I will go over drawings an offer advice. Thanks!
