When you resize a shape it gets bigger or smaller ...
... but it still looks similar:
- all angles stay the same
- relative sizes are the same (for example
the face and body are still in proportion)

To resize, just do this for every corner:
Then just connect the dots for the resized shape!
Try It Yourself
