How to draw the human figure - Add shapes to the stick figure
Stick Figure Shapes
The nest step in figure drawing is to "flesh out"
the stick figure. Put some meat on those bones! We'll be
drawing directly over your stick figure. You're drawing
with a pencil, right? Because we're going to be erasing
these lines as we complete our drawing.
The guy we're drawing
Start with the head of your stick
figure and draw the
contour of his
neck. You can redraw the head if you
feel like you'd like to get it tighter.
Then working your way down the body,
continue to draw the contours of his
body by drawing ovals in the width that
you see the shapes that make up his
body. Draw one oval for the upper arm,
and then an overlapping oval to
represent the lower arm. And yet another
hand-shaped oval for the hand. And so on
down his body. Don't press with your
pencil too hard since we'll be erasing
these lines soon.
