Hey, what's up? It's Chris, and today we're going to be learning how to draw the male human back. Let's begin. Remember, when looking at a man's back we're behind him so we're going to start from the neck and these are the shoulders, these lines are coming down, bring the lines down and these will be the arms. The arms will go out a little bit and the back usually starts we'll start a line from here and we'll just bring that down for the torso and you're doing the same thing on the other side. Make sure it's even, bring your lines down and we'll start right here at the waist. We'll put these lines here so you can see that's the arms and that continues. So that's the arms. In fact let's go a little further down to the elbow. So we'll keep going down, then right here we'll go like that. The reason why we draw in these lines is that you can tell that that's the elbow, that's the back of the person. Now, you want to put a little indentation in the middle, in the middle of the back going straight down and you want to do the same thing on the other side, going straight down, little muscles over here on the sides you can put some lines and for the shoulders you can put some more lines there to highlight that. Then, continue going down with the arms and at this end you'll start with the fingers and come in and the hands go out like that. Thus more emphasizing that you're behind a person. And there are the fingers and we will stop at the waist, put a little line right there, indentation for the bottom of the spine and there you are. I'm Chris, and this is how you draw the male human back.
