Hi. My name is Daisy. I'm an artist, And I'm going to show you how to draw figures in poses. We're going to draw one guy down here. Start with a circle, two circles through his body. This guy's going to be sitting down, looking down. So, a circle for his head, a couple lines for the legs and then we can flesh him in a little bit, make him an actual person. So, I just follow through all my lines that I've created for my arms and legs to flesh him out, nice and simple. Remove any lines as you go that you don't need. Bring this one down a little more, triangles for feet. The same with the hands, a little oval, keep all the fingers together and then an oval for the thumb. Long lines coming down. And then erase these inside lines. Let's give him some pants, a shirt. this hand over here and the arm you won't see so much so let's hide it behind the body. And then a simple face and some spiky hair. There's one figure sitting down. I'm going to show you a couple more, just simplifying the bodies a little bit. So, this guy's standing up which is one line all the way, fill in his face using the same idea that I set up, this guy, circles for the body, long lines for the legs, put them in place, a couple lines coming out for the feet, a couple of arms. This guy's going to be holding on to his head. That's a really quick way to get a pose going. Let's do a more feminine pose. A couple of lines connecting two circles, long lines for legs coming out, hands on hips and then a circle for the head, really simple. And then you just do the same. Fill them in like I did with this guy. There we go. My name is Daisy and that's how you draw figures in poses.
