Something wrong with body proportions, image attached
I hope its right place to ask this question, anyways this is my example of what I try to paint in photoshop with digital pen and i try to understand what wrong in this paint.
Some say - the head is small, other - the legs are long and so on.
But I see something i miss here. Please help,
Well, the upper part of the body (to be more specific, the torso) is not proportional to the rest of the body. That's what's beet bothering me a little about the image. Also, the arms appear to be a little small.
The proportions used in figure drawing are:
- An average person, is generally 7-and-a-half heads tall (including the head).
- An ideal figure, used when aiming for an impression of nobility or grace, is drawn at 8 heads tall.
- A heroic figure, used in the heroic for the depiction of gods and superheroes, is eight-and-a-half heads tall. Most of the additional length comes from a bigger chest and longer legs. (source)
Ideal body proportions for a woman:
It looks to me like the breast is extending directly out from the bottom of the neck and this looks a bit un-natural for a woman. As seen in the image provided by Alin, there is a subtle collarbone and upper chest surface area extending from the neck before breasts. Also I think the neck might be just a little too short in your photoshop.
