I'm not exactly sure if it's helpful xD, but the way I do it is as followed:
- Most of the times I start with the line of action, then shoulders, head and limbs ( just as joints and lines). Sometimes I start with the head > action line > shoulders,…
- when I have time left I add volume
I try to use as few lines as possible and if possible I avoid boring, straight lines. For the body as a whole, I work from simple lines to more complex shapes.
What helps me a bit is to let go of the idea that a arm is a arm, or a leg is a leg, I just focus on the shapes I see :}
For the proportions I look at the reference, especially at the joints ^^
@cryoxin I hope this helps somehow 🤪😄
