Hi, my name is Erik. I'm an artist. I'm going to show you how to draw croquis figures. Okay, so, a croquis figure is 10 heads tall. So, let's start by just charting the heads. Let's see. Let's start a line up here. And, let's say a head about that big. So, I'm going to chart these out. There's one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10. Okay. Now, let's start the head at the top. Let's put about center. And then, one, two, three, four, five, five down - that's approximately where the hips are. Bring that up. Let's see, in between, about one and a half down, that's where the shoulders are. Bring that down on this model. And then, the legs are very long on a croquis figure. So, let's bring these all the way down. And then, the foot is the bottom head there. So, that's about where this is. Let's bring these legs down. And then, the arms come down as such. Now, the arms and - they're about, they go about down to the hip. That's about where the hands are. Put this arm over here, bring this down to the hip. And then, the neck goes right here. Okay, so, let's just fill this out a bit, define it more. There's the head. Neck comes down. The shoulders start one and a half heads down. Let's draw some arms. The elbows are about two - the elbows are three heads down, pardon me. Bring these down, give her some hands. We'll stay on some hands. Fill out this arm, give the elbow. And then, this is just very basic framework for the model. This leg up. Let's see, the hip. Crotch is right below the hip. And, let's just draw these little feet. And, that is how you draw a croquis figure.
