 # (Free Lesson 1) Fashion illustration bodies block measurement for 12.5 inch figure

When it comes to fashion illustration bodies, there are various proportions and measurements that can be used depending on the desired aesthetic or style. However, if you’re specifically looking for block measurements for a figure with a 12.5-inch height, here’s a general guideline:

1. Divide the height of the figure into eight equal parts. In this case, each part would be approximately 1.56 inches (12.5 divided by 8).
2. The head usually takes up one-eighth of the total height, so the head measurement would be approximately 1.56 inches.
3. The neck is typically about half the width of the head, so the neck measurement would be around 0.78 inches.
4. The shoulders are usually about two heads wide, so the shoulder measurement would be approximately 3.12 inches (1.56 multiplied by 2).
5. The waist is usually around one and a half heads below the shoulder line. Therefore, the waist measurement would be around 4.68 inches (1.56 multiplied by 1.5).
6. The hips are typically wider than the shoulders and are about two heads wide. So, the hip measurement would be approximately 3.12 inches (1.56 multiplied by 2).
7. The distance from the top of the head to the waist is usually around six heads, so the measurement would be approximately 9.36 inches (1.56 multiplied by 6).
8. The distance from the waist to the bottom of the figure (feet) is usually around two heads, so the measurement would be approximately 3.12 inches (1.56 multiplied by 2).

Remember that these measurements are general guidelines, and proportions can vary depending on the desired style or artistic interpretation. It’s always a good idea to experiment and adjust the proportions to achieve the desired look in your fashion illustrations.
