People come in all sizes and shapes, but there are a few underlying rules which are a invaluable for getting proportion accurate in figure painting.Once you are familiar with these,its also easiar to observe the natural variatoins that in peoples height,If the head (from the end of the chin to the crown)is taken as a until of measurment,the body is about seven and half heads tall.There are three heads lengths from the end of the spine to the base of the skull.Midpoint is at the genitals.
Feet and hands=Feet and hands are surprisingly big.Feet are about a head long and hands are easily the same length as from the chin to the forhead.
Arms and legs=If the arems are hanging freely,the wrists are around midpoint and the fingrtips mid-thigh in women,the elbows are slightly above the waist.
Shoulder-In a man the shoulders about two heads wide.
Bottocks=About a head tall.
