02 Drawing Nº 9
In the above image, A, the drawing on the left, is from a growth chart in LTBADA. The drawing on the right, B, is from Peck's anatomy book. I have re-sized and moved things around in both drawings, using Kolourpaint. From the bottom of the feet, up to the knees is about two head lengths. From the top of the head to the bottom of the breasts is about two head lengths. The mid-point is a little above the crotch. The wrists should be at about the same level as the crotch, and the tips of the fingers should reach about mid-thigh. A hand length, from the wrist to the tips of the fingers is about three-fourths of one head length. The foot is about as long as one head length. These are all just rules of thumb, of course.
