Hi, my name is Daisy. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw human gestures. So the first one I'm going to do an excited happy one. Let's just do torso up to make it nice and simple. So really simple basic lines to begin with that will fill in. So that's our basic excited happy pose. Now to make it look like a person doing so you just need to follow these lines and fill in the blanks. So I'm going to do ovals for hands. The hands are going to be wide open. A good thing with drawing people, don't do everything symmetrically because people often are a little bit different and it will look more interesting in your drawing. Erase any lines we don't need, give her a T shirt and then to complete the whole gesture we want the face looking up and excited. So that's just one idea of how to do one gesture. Let's try another one with our shrugged shoulders. So I'm just going to do this really simply and keep to basic shapes. Let's draw the head kind of looking down and the arms coming out at an angle, hands. So this person is looking down and shrugging. Another one could be getting angry. This person's head is about to explode. He's going to be kind of looking down again. I'm going to make the body really angled so it's really going to explode. So there's a lot you can do with just really basic figures and where their gestures are. So there we go. My name is Daisy and that's how you draw human gestures.
