Hi, my name is Erick. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw sketches of the human body. Okay let's just start out with a head which is going to be like an egg shape or an oval, bring a guideline down for the neck and torso, let's fill in this neck. The shoulders are going to be about here, let's see, let's count one, two, three, four, five, six, bring this here, clear out this guideline and let's just do some quick circles for the shoulder, bring this arm down and back up. Let's see, let's bring this arm down at rest, his torso, let's see make the hips a little bit wider, bring down this leg, it's about here and here. Let's draw some feet, add that, bring this up. Let's get rid of this guideline, do this, bring this down. The knee is going to be about there, draw another foot. Okay there we go and let's draw these hands, one, two, draw a thumb, bring this hand down, thumb, fingers here, okay let's get rid of this guideline, let's draw a bit of a face here. So, halfway mid section that's where the eyes are going to be about halfway down there. The nose is going to be about halfway down from that point and then you can do a mouth about halfway down below that, ears match the eyes, do some hair. Let's give this person just a shirt quick and draw out his pants and that is how you draw a sketch of the human body.
