five twelfths 

I've been drawing this bird and bear on and off for half a dozen years now and I'm hoping soon to do something more substantial and public with them. As such I'm trying to get into the habit of drawing them with some type of consistency instead of making them slightly different each time (The Bear in particular seems to be very prone to sudden weight gain and loss). Also, there's been huge variation in their relative sizes in the past with The Bird being anything from about a quarter up to a half of The Bear's height. After a good deal of experimentation I seem to have settled on five twelfths as the optimum Bird/Bear ratio. I defy you to disagree.
