Human Body Proportions (Male and Female) by Ametystical Human Body Proportions (Male and Female) by Ametystical
For the man I used the so well known 8 heads canon. People usually use the same canon for females but since them are smaller than males I prefer to use 7 heads for drawing the woman.

That three strokes below the hands is where would be the finger tips, if the hands were straight.





MALE PROPORTIONS


1 - chin

2 - nipples

3 - navel and end of the elbows

4 - pubis and wrists (notice that the genital is below the line)

5 - middle of the thighs

6 - end of the knees

7 - end of the calves

8 - heels





FEMALE PROPORTIONS 

1 - chin

2 - nipples

3 - waist and elbows in the middle of the "3 head"

4 - pubis and wrists in the middle of the "4 head"

5 - start of the knees

6 - end of the calves

7 - heels





Note: The waist is aligned with the elbows; the navel is a little below the waist. The pubis (pubic bone not the genital) is aligned with the wrists. The fingertips are aligned with the middle of the thigh.
