Hi, my name is Erik. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you beginning drawing steps for the human body figure. Okay let's start out just by drawing a head which is an oval and then since the human body is about eight heads tall let's do one, two, three, four and to the bottom of the torso is going to be where the legs start about and let's just do an oval there for that portion of the body and then you can do one for the hips and pelvis there. Now let's bring down the neck, draw a line for the shoulders, circles for the shoulders and just go in and draw approximately the shape of the ribcage is going to be there and you can even bring that down. Okay now you can go in and figure out let's see, one, two, three, four where the bottom of the feet are going to be and let's do that. Okay now the arms are going to come down to about where the legs begin and that section and that section. Let's get rid of some of these guidelines, get rid of that, there we go and get rid of these lines here. Okay now let's bring this shoulder up, bring this arm down, there we go. Now we have another arm there. Now let's bring these legs down which are going to be about four heads in length, one foot, bring this up. Now let's bring another leg down which is the same length. Okay, let's have where the groin is at, bring this down and these shoulders look a little hunched to me actually. Okay bring this up and round out those shoulders a bit. Alright, now proportionally those are some drawing tips or they're just beginning drawing steps for the human body figure.
