shape based character setup for beginners (side) by Oceans-Art shape based character setup for beginners (side) by Oceans-Art
Second tutorial of the beginner series. Front view is linked below ;)
Goal is to know the locations of your body parts and to get used to the widths and lenghts here.
Don't go into detail too much while practising it will distract you from the essential things.
work with straight lines most of the time it is much easier to handle and to find
mistakes later on.  the simple shading is great to get a better understanding of your
shapes. and when you got finished take a red pen and do some corrections.
it's a good way to remember the mistakes later on while drawing or practising ^_____^

Have fun
Oceans

This is anatomically very inaccurate.
I know it's a different "style" but even stylized drawings look odd if you don't follow basic anatomy.

But, I really do agree. The most nerve wrecking thing about this is that they are teaching a 1/6 head proportion. That just makes me cringe. Isn't it 1/7 or 1/8?

You know, I'm fine with a big head. But stylisation only works if the artist follows the basic rules of anatomy.
Here, the ribcage is warped and misplaced. Its too far up and  the hipbone is huge, the distance between the joints are off, the breasts look like they aren't attached and so on... its just a bad tutorial.
There are some good stylisation/manga tutorials out there, but this one is just bad.

You know what they say: First learn the rules, then break them... the artist just skipped the first step.

I like that the breast is placed low on the chest and droop naturally, as it does with gravity. However, shading around that area could be worked on. Lines around or on top of the breast...make it look like they're plastic attachments. Shading probably shouldn't be that blocky around that area, either. The neck/head placement is possibly a bit off too - too much head not being supported by the neck. Otherwise, legs and all seem pretty good.
