Hi, my name is Daisy, I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a couple walking. So you're going to walk towards us so we'll block in the basic shapes and we can do this at the same time blocking in the bodies rather than doing everything separate because they're combined in this drawing. So I'm going to have the bodies joined at the hip cause they're going to be skooching in together as they walk. A couple lines for the legs just really basic right now, these lines come out and this guy will have his arm around her shoulder and won't see the rest of her arm and then some ovals for the heads so that's a real basic shape. Now, I'm going to fill everything in using these lines that we've just created. So this man's arm will just be off to the side, some ovals for fingers, really simple. Fill in the t-shirt, put a v under where his neck would be to show you his collar, couple triangles and then get rid of any lines that we don't need anymore. Now, I'm going to put the girl in a long dress, it's going to come down. So that's going to take care of most of her bodywork so we can rid of all this under here, fill in a longer v for her. Her arm can go down to the side too and his hand is going to come across over on her shoulder. Now, for the legs, they're going to be coming at us so we can see the underneath of her foot. I'm just going to color that in for the shoe that she's wearing and this one's going to be back a bit, same with his. This leg's going to come forward first, you're going to see the underneath of his shoes so I'll just color that in and this leg is still behind so we're not going to see that one so much. Now, I just realized I need to bring this one forward a little bit so it syncs up. That's why we need to draw them together so they come together as a team and are walking in the same perspective, and there we go put in the final details, a little bit of spiky hair, some long hair for her. My name is Daisy and that's how you draw a couple walking.
