Anatomy and proportion

Anatomy and proportion: Learning Character Development and Design
Anatomy and proportion: Learning Character Development and Design

A key to making a character that resonates is to research the anatomical structure of a body form, whether human, animal, invented creature, or machine. The more you understand how an actual form is put together, the better you’ll be at drawing new characters and getting the proportions just right. You’ll learn the basics of human anatomy, the standard unit of measurement to keep proportions accurate, and the ways that you can use anatomy as a source for exaggeration and character expression.
