DRAWING 101: Lesson 1
THE HUMAN BODY
I've had a pencil in my hand since I was 2 years-old. According to my Mom. Haha But when I was in High School, I had a great Art teacher. She gave me some great tips on a lot of things and different techniques. The information that I use the most for drawing people are contained withing the following images.
I was going through some old stuff in my closet and came across these. I know that there are some artists here that might enjoy these and hopefully get some use of them, too.
These are for proportions of the human body. Very, very useful for drawing the human form. Unless you're intending the person to look awkward and unproportioned. lol
I hope these help you to become better at drawing the human form. Remember, these are not "rules". Everything within art has as much play room as you want to have with it. These are guidelines. Not pronouncements. Have fun with it. If you're not having fun or enjoying what you're doing, you're doing it wrong. lol Make shit up. Try new things. Distort the laws of physics with your mind. The paper is your Matrix and your pen/pencil is your Neo. You have complete freedom.
These are only a few tips on one subject withing drawing. If anyone has anything to add, do so. If you have any questions for me, feel free to ask.
Here are a few more images that I found in one of my old Wizard magazines. Drawing the head (Wizard Magazine) I always loved reading their drawing tips from the pro comic illustrators. I may add more of these threads later if the demand is high enough and I have the time. Until then... Have Fun & B... Well, my signature says that now.
