1) First, draw the head at an angle as seen below. Then use the length of the head as your unit of measure to draw the diagram, as below.
The length of the body is approximately 3 and 1/5 heads long.
The height is approximately 2 and 1/2 heads high.
2) Once you have drawn the diagram, divide the height in two and draw a horizontal dotted line. This will help you with the joint placement.
