How do you know what the shoulder height of a human is? You see it in images all the time and you most likely don’t even notice. But how do you get ideas for your character design art?

I have been asked many times about how a person can get better ideas for concept art of a character. This is something everyone struggles with. I have seen some great artists who just can’t come up with ideas of characters. I have been asked this question so many times that I decided to make a blog post about it and help all the artist who want to be better at concept art.
Trying to use your photo references in a way that helps you find out what body part your drawing and where it is located is something I learned from experience. When I started I was struggling with this very thing, but over time I learned a lot about how to draw the human figure better through using picture references. The key is finding the right photo reference for you.
I hope you enjoy this blog post and get some good techniques from it to help you draw characters better. It will not be long before you are using picture references in a way that really helps your drawing abilities in concept art and characters.
Being able to tell the height of a person from the length of their shadow is a good exercise for getting into the habit of observing and recording a lot of detail. This could help you to get ideas for your character design art.
If you are already drawing, or have done other concept art before, then you will know that it can be hard to come up with good ideas. You might also find it hard to figure out what angle to draw your character from. It is easy to get stuck on one idea, especially if you are new to this sort of thing.
Trying this shadow exercise can help with both of these problems. To start with, it is an easy way to spot mistakes in your drawing without having to look at the whole picture (which could make you feel embarrassed about it). And once you are able to notice more detail, then you will find it easier to get ideas for your concept art.
You need to think about that. You will also have to find out the shoulder height from the picture. The shoulder height changes from one person to another, so you need to think about where your character is standing when you take the picture. For example, if your character is standing in an open place, he/she will look taller than if your character is standing in a narrow street. If the camera angle is high, then characters look smaller and if the camera angle is low then they look bigger.
Tilt can also make a difference to how you see your characters height: tilt makes people look shorter or taller. So you need to be careful and study the picture very carefully before you start drawing it on paper.
Whether you call it concept art, character design, or illustration, the goal is still the same: to communicate the look and personality of a character so that others can visualize them.
More specifically, you will be asked to illustrate a character from a series of images with as much detail as possible in each image. The character will not be described in words, but rather through pictures. Your job is to fill in the details of your picture with the appropriate body parts, clothing, weapons or armor, etc.

From the picture, I can tell if your shoulder is above, below or at the level of the top of your head.
From where I am standing and viewing your body, therefore, I can draw a line from the top of your head to one shoulder and another line from the top of your head to the other shoulder. These two lines will cross in front of you somewhere around your waist. Your waist will be where these lines intersect.
TIP: If you have a full length mirror available, stand sideways in front of it and trace these lines across your body onto your image on the mirror. (A pencil works best.) This way you will see exactly how they should look when you are done.
The concept artist should be able to draw what the character looks like from any angle. The concept art must be done with a high level of detail as you will need these assets to be used in the game engine.
The concept artist needs to have some knowledge of human anatomy and proportions. You will need to be able to draw the character no matter what angle you are asked to draw it.
Concept art is mostly used for computer games, movies, and animations. The concept artist should have some knowledge on how to create images that are visually appealing and are easy for the viewer to understand.
