Touch yourself.

why are you asking if the answers are on pic you posted?
>>
>>3935983
just draw already
>>
Focus on the shapes and how big/small they are compared to the shapes next to them
>>
Use landmarks to measure porportions.

here's a good proko video on traditional sight-size measuring:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzDGO0LssEM

basically, use a tool to measure a part of the body and use that measurement as a unit to compare to other parts. so measure out widest part of the right pec (frame right, his left, i guess) and compare to the left one. then you can say to yourself, OK, the close pec is as wide as the far pec all the way to the shoulder. or from hips to mid-deltoid is 2 pecs tall.

i drew the red line in the circle and then just copy/pasted around to see what else could similarly fit that measurement. you don't have to use one measurement for everything, you can compare in context. but all together it'll help you keep your relative proportions tighter.

probably because you are asking questions answered in like the first 20 pages of most books involving figure drawing
>>
>>3935983
Triangulate.

doesnt really help with proportions, but helps with surface shapes like collar bone
