WEEK 1 Handouts and Supplemental Materials

“IDEAL” Proportions

Below Are Proportion Guides from the book Figure Drawing for All its Worth by Andrew Loomis, published c1920.  (A great book if you can get your hands on a copy!)  Use them to help you with your proportions.  It is recommended that you print them and stick them into your sketchbook for reference.


For some additional help here are a few Youtube videos on the subject of BASIC HUMAN PROPORTION.  If you encounter a good one, PLEASE share it with the class!
