When drawing an anime body, we use circles (or heads) to define the proportions.
Drawing an anime body depends on whether you are drawing a girl or a boy. Girls are typically shorter, and have smaller frames. That is why we use 1:7 proportions vs 1:8 for males.
The body shape of a girl is also typically more curvy. Their shoulders are also more slender.
Girls tend to have smaller joints as well. For example, their wrists are much thinner when compared with those of boys'.
