Hi, my name is Daisy, I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a dancing old guy. So you're going to draw the basic shapes in, circle for the head, a couple circles for the torso, simple shapes of the legs and for the arms. So that's our basic shapes, now we can fill it in and make him look like an old man dancing. So let's use the lines we've already created and follow them around, give him some pants as you go take out all of the lines that we don't need, make it look like his foot is actually lifting up off the ground but still planted down. We do that by just making this bit go across this bit. This foot can be totally on the ground, it's a lot more simple, take out all these lines and then you can give him whatever sort of outfit you want but remember he's an old man so don't go too crazy. I'm going to give him a jacket, we're filling in his arms. We can see the opening of the jacket here and you can have a striped sweater on, we're going to give him a bow-tie which is really simple just a couple triangles that I'm going to color in. If you want to see the other side of his jacket that just comes out like so, really simple hands, just some ovals for the fingers, same on this side, big nose, let's give him some little glasses, just a rectangle and a pupil, big mustache, and some hair and then some hair and no hair at the top to make him bald. And there we go, my name is Daisy and that's how you draw a dancing old guy.
