Hi, I'm Jessica and I'm and artist, and today we're going to draw human body figures. So the first thing we're going to do is just create the head, and then there's a neck, and some shoulders, arms on each side. This particular human figure is looking at us pretty much straight on. They've got their, sort of torso area, the hips and the thighs that connect to the calves and the legs, don't forget the hands, which are basically circles with some lines on them for the fingers. So the human body figure, we can do this in a lot of different ways. This one as you can see has been made with different pieces that kind of connect together, we can also do this in one continuous line, we have a head that comes down to the hand, the torso, the hips, the legs, the foot, comes back up. If we're doing a person sort of straight on, generally they're going to be pretty symmetrical on each side. We could also do someone from a profile view, there's the nose, and the head comes around to the neck, a bit of a shoulder on each side there, arms are going to come down. The arms are pretty long actually, they go a little longer than you'd expect them to go, they come, well past your hips. And there's the side view, and the leg comes down and connects to the foot, maybe the other arm is over here doing something. So, yeah, there are basically a few different ways of drawing your human body figures.
