Hi, my name is Erik. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw the side view of a body. Okay, let's just start out and we're drawing the profile, let's start out with the head up here. I'm going to start a little bit smaller actually, draw this, draw their nose, the mouth, that, an ear and let's draw their eyes there and let's bring the neck down, draw their shoulder coming back, an arm coming down, let's do an elbow there, let's do a hand coming out here, bring the shoulder up, the torso coming down. So the hips, the backside, thigh coming down. Let's do the knee here, draw the calf, this leg coming down and the ankle ending in a foot. Now let's add his other leg here for the balance, this foot and let's just add his other arm sticking up and hair. Okay and that is how you draw a side view of a body.
