Hi, my name is Patricia, I'm an artist, and I'm going to show you how to draw a person sitting cross-legged. So first we'll draw the torso, and then we go down to the waist, and here are the legs themselves, and the foot. Notice they're like, they're ovalesque, but no fully, like I'd say semi-circled, but it's more like a semi-oval. Alright, so we have the leg area, we're going to put the head here, and then we have the arms. Okay, let's go over this again. So, I have the layout, we're going to bring it around, again this is the torso, down to the waist, then the legs themselves, and here I feel like the leg is a little bit too big, so I'm going to make it smaller, and this one is going in front of the other one, so of course that leg is over it. And let's see, you have the pants. Alright, and then this hand is going to be resting upon this knee, this one is going behind, and the head. And there, we'll put them on the floor, you have a person sitting cross legged, enjoy.
