Hi, I'm Rosalie and I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw people laying on a couch. So I'm going to start with the couch and I'm going to just do like a real basic sofa shape like this and I'm going to make a shape like that and then I give it some space and then I make another shape like that but facing the other way. Those are the arms of the couch from the front and then I connect the bottom and then that and then this is where the sofa cushions are. I'm going to divide those into three cushions, a standard sofa size is like three cushions. Alright I'm going to leave this for the time being because I have to draw the people, oh here's the legs of the couch. Alright, so I'm going to put one person sort of lounging over here and they have their arm hanging over the side of the couch. There it is, this marker is done for, and then, their other arm is coming around like this and their body is like this. They're just lounging you know, a little bit off the couch, so let's just say they're like that. Their feet made it to the floor but they're just sort of lounging and erase this part because the body is covering that now so you can sort of see that. Okay so that's one person. He's psyched, he's just chilling. Then the other person is going to be sort of sitting over here, also psyched and maybe he's just got his legs up on the couch. He's like just relaxing and he's got his hand like on his leg and there's his other leg and the couch is going back and there's the back of it. They're just, these guys are just hanging out. Maybe they're brothers or something, they're just hanging out on the couch and that's how I draw people laying on a couch.
