Similar in principal to joojaa, here, my post concerns itself with the whys and tries, more than the whats. If you're at a plateau in your learning for particular digital processes then why not take a step back? Perhaps you can achieve more in a completely different way. Sometimes I find, for instance, that the perfect image cannot be created digitally ...

EDIT: Since the original request was for the wooden mannequin, here's that exact model already done for you in blender for free: Wooden Mannequin - Rigged by ...

All 3D apps that I have used could do this. Most modern posing apps have have a much more elaborate model than that but many can also use a a classic wooden mannequin. But perhaps of special interest is Poser 3D. Poser was originally meant for this purpose only (tough years of adding features means that's no longer just the case) there is a number of ...

Your question is a little difficult to understand, but you might find that turning on Smart Guides (View > Smart Guides) helps, as it will mean your drawing 'snaps' to the other shapes on your artboard. It may also be that you have 'Align to Pixel Grid' ticked. Draw a shape, select it and then open up the 'Transform' palette and make sure that 'Align to ...
