    This ought to help.

    Try observing from real life to start off with rather than images, there's a certain amount of depth perception & perspective that you need to account for when measuring that you won't get with 2D images. Also knowing your anatomy will help you identify certain landmarks more easily, so do some anatomy studies.

    And... yeah. Babes aren't exactly an equitable reward.

    Flip the picture upside down then you will not see the boobs anymore but rather forms, distances and abstract shapes. What you have painted is the stereo type of what you have inside your head and not what is there. When you flip a picture upside down your brain/eyes doesn´t see it as "boobs/arms/hips..." anymore.

    Betty Edwards "Picasso Exercise" is a good example of how it works.
