Drawing the Human Figure
Using Basic Shapes
In this tutorial you will learn how to simplify the human figure into basic shapes. Memorizing the human anatomy can be daunting, but when you break it down into basic simple shapes like a sphere, a box or a cylinder, you will be able to construct the human figure in a much simpler way. After that you will learn how to combine all these shapes together in a Peanut like shape to make the process of drawing the figure (even in complex poses) much easier. In short, you will learn how to draw the figure from reference or imagination in a correct and easy way.
What will you gain through this tutorial
First of all, we will explain the difference between static basic shapes used to draw inanimate objects vs.dynamic basic shapes used to draw organic living objects.Including a quick look at the gesture, line weight and the direction of movement.
Right after that, we will draw the figure in different complicated poses including foreshortened and perspective poses.
Basic shapes of the male and female figures
Next, we will draw the figure from start to finish, using basic shapes, gesture, mannequin and finally the final drawing.
Then, we will have a quick look at the important anatomical bone and muscles structure of the human body that will be needed to draw the figure in the correct way.
