PROP LINES

Proportion Lines are the same things we all used when we were learning the alphabet.
They help to make sure we establish contact points on our characters to keep them looking consistent.

You see here I build the lines based on the illustration-- so that I don't just use a generic set of lines.

Simply put, draw your character in one position and then when you are happy with it drop in your prop lines at critical points.

In this case I have them at;
Top of the head
Hairline
Eyebrows
Eyes
Nose
Mouth
Chin

So making sure the face lines up with these prop lines does its part to keepign the character consistent.
