The Male Body

Here we are at stage 1:
Nothing fancy. Just a fast loose stick figure that will serve as our foundation piece. Note that the form is 7 heads high.

Shoulders are a Head and a half from the top. Shoulders are 2 or more heads wide.
(more for heroic types..less for dweebies)

Hips are about a head and a half wide. Hips should be narrower than the shoulders.

Hips are 3 heads down.

Knees are 5 heads down.

Keep it loose at this stage but be wary of your proportions.
