If you spend a lot of time designing objects for humans, then it would be a grave mistake to arm yourself with knowledge of body proportions and how to convey the use of your objects in context.

Unfortunately, sketching humans accurately can be an incredibly daunting process to learn—particularly if you’re not trying to set out as the next Rembrandt or hit Manga artist.

For simple desktop sketches as the need arises, we’re big fans of the Max Factory Figma Archetype Next Male Action Figure.

Using the smooth posable joints, users can act out a variety of poses for ensuring that they get their proportions right—even if it still takes a few tries. Also, who doesn’t want an awesome action figure on their desk?
