To have a pictorial representation of your ideas, before you implement them, you will need a figure that will highlight them. The figure tries to serve the best performance in the design according to needs and trends. However, here you will learn a classic illustration of it.

As a measure we will take the size of the head. In a simple drawing, we calculate the height of the body from the jaw and below to be equal to seven heights of the head. In a freer design we estimate it to be equal to nine head heights.

Measurements are in centimeters. Use the converter below.

(Measurements are in centimeters. Convert centimeters to inches here.)

You will need a 30 x 40 cm drawing block.

  • First we will draw the head. Make a rectangle. For a perfect head shape, we estimate its horizontal dimension to be 2/3 of the vertical. So if we have 4 cm. vertical, then we will have 2.7 cm. horizontally.

Capture the head in the shape of an egg with its sharp side down.

  • Draw the rest of the body as shown below.

  • The shoulders are 1/3 of the distance from 2 to 3.

  • The upper circumference is 1/6 of the distance from 4 to 5.

  • The knee is 1/3 of the distance from 7 to 8.

  • The ankles are 1/3 of the distance from 9 to 10.
