Day Twenty-Six: Finding Proportions At Any Spot In Your Picture

Loomis demonstrates how to set up the proper proportions of various figures in an image by using a standing and sitting figure in the center of the image as a “key” for the rest of the figures.

This was extremely helpful, but I still have to practice some more before I really nail it down.
