I have tried doing this many times but come up finding new problems when I try.

What I'm referring to is character designs. You draw a front view, side, and back of the character. I always draw the front the best I can, then use a t-square to line up the points, such as: head, shoulders, waist, hands, etc.
When a drawing of a character has to be taken to 3D it has to be perfect.

Does anyone else have a better way of doing this besides using the t-square.

sculpt it. It's alot easier and you got something more permanant to show for it.

LOL...I could try poser but I'd need a cintiq to go over the model with a drawing.

I know , you can look online for base body forms already created and just print it out and draw over that! :)

These are generally called "Three quarter turn" sheets, I believe. It's an animation thing.

They make em for action figures too. Saw Art Adam's for the hulk figures he designed a few years ago.
