Hi. My name's Patricia. I'm an artist. And I'm going to show you how to draw someone lying down. This fairly easy. We've got the head, again notice how it's the oval. We've got the neck, the body which is going to go up a little bit and then down to the legs and the feet. And this is just somebody lying straight on their back. And you have their arms next to them. Very simple, somebody lying down. Now, they night be in bed so you can put a bed around them and some sheets. So, here we go, we're going to do the bed and we can put the sheet on top of them and so that they're lying down in bed. Of course, you know what, I did the sheet incorrectly because what happens when you're lying down? Does the sheet just float above you? No, it follows your body. So, here's the sheet on the outside lying down. And if you're in bed, you might have your arm on top. So, let's put the arm here. And there you go. There's somebody lying down in bed, sleeping restfully. There you have it. Somebody lying down. Enjoy.
