In this video, with pen and paper, I show the basic proportions, which are only slightly altered in the detailed proportions. You can use the basic proportions to draw, comics, cartoons, and even realistic figures, but the detail proportions is more accurate for the average real person. I highly recommend starting here.
In this lecture, we learn the proportions of the human figure. This is one of the most important features of the figure to learn, because if this is wrong, the whole figure will look wrong, no matter how nicely rendered.
The skeleton is the foundation of the figure. It is what all the muscles attach to. You need to learn it in order to learn where the muscles attach to, and learning where the muscles attach is the key to drawing figures quickly from imagination, the key to creating awesome comic characters and video game characters, etc.

We learn about the pecks and where they attach to get the best understanding of how to draw this area of the body once we add skin.
This is the second most important lesson in the whole course. Please don't skip it.
Hands are like learning to draw some alien figure. Seriously. They are hard, but these hand lessons will get you drawing hands like never before.
You might not realize it, but learning to draw the skull is a very important foundation to understanding how to draw heads and faces from your imagination. You will be surprised how much better your faces and heads are after learning this.
There are many types of bodies, so to make your figures more diverse, we are going to learn all the body types, and how and where the fat builds up to create those body types. It isn't enough for a teacher to just say, here is this body type, and not explain how and why we get that body type. Once you understand the fat system and where fat builds up in the different body types, not only will you be able to draw all body types from imagination, but you will be able to invent new body types.
