Body Buddy

Give a useful application of symmetry in real-life.

  • We’re all familiar on how our bodies are quite symmetrical if you When drawing the human body, it is usually recommended to use a basic anatomy framework as a starting point to learn how body proportions generally work, like this (check out dem circles). It helps in picking up proper habits if you know how it looks like in its simplest form. But the standard front-view pose like that is too static and doesn’t look natural at all, so you’d want to draw at an angle with varied poses for something that evokes more emotion. You’ll find that this stage is full of asymmetric parts and shapes, because perspective does a lot to its original form of the body. However, by remembering the basics from the symmetric front-view anatomy bare bones (and maybe with some help from reference images), visualizing how these body parts would look like at all sorts of angles would be easier.
