Drawing Human Body

Here we will learn  how to draw different figures..

We should be well clear about the anatomy of a man/woman for this.
The shape of a male human body is depicted in the figure.Sholders,chest and hands have peculiar muscular shape which varies with age/body nature.If hand is held straight,it should not touch his knee,rather it will be at the middle of hip and knee.
For a female human body different body parts ar having its own features based on age and body nature.Bodyparts will be little more smoother and flexible.Height and weight should be less than a comaparable man.
Hand is held straight,it should not touch his knee,rather it will be at the middleof hip and knee.
Symmetry of body should be maintained with respect to axis of the person as shown in the above figure.

Hence basic steps for drawing a human body are as follows:

1.Plan your drawing. Draw some vertical and horizontal lines to plan your drawing.Planning is also important for the proportion of the drawing. Measure the figure by seeing how many times the head fits in the body height.

2.Draw some basic shapes to represent the parts of the body by using a pencil. Circles, rectangles, ovals andtriangles can be used.For the varieties of human figures, you can also use different kinds and sizes of circles and ovals, etc. For example, to draw a fat man, you can use a big oval for his body part.To draw a short girl, you can use small and short ovals, rectangles and circles.According to your imagination and creativity, you can alter or use different kinds of shapes to make your drawings funny or strange.

3.Sketch the outlines lightly using a pencil. This step is important as you need to try to draw your figure
in a realistic and lively way.

4.Draw the details of the drawing i.e. clothes, accessories. You can use a pen to finalize your drawing. You can put your desired clothes and colors.
We will meet soon with how to draw a face...Watch out....
