seam sorting

From my handmade notebook, which I carry everywhere. Like a teeny security blanket of ink and wood pulp.

A lot of artists don’t allow enough room for the chin, particularly in anime styles. This results in a character that looks child-like.

“Symphesis pubis” is the fancy name for the pubic bone. Ever see that sort of seam on the front of the pelvis on a skeleton? That’s the symphesis pubis.

Eight heads is a little long for realism but it’s a common idealized figure, and hopefully the quick divisions help somebody. God knows I could have used them years ago.

Hope you guys can read my handwriting!
