We will continue the series of basic drawing lessons. Today we created a new guide on how to draw a female body.
Firstly we depict the approximate contours of the body. We will draw with this stickman in this step. The basic features of this step are a large pelvis and a relatively narrow chest. In general, the pelvis of a woman is usually narrower than the shoulders.
In this step we will only draw sticks. As you may have noticed, we used sticks to create the contours of the woman’s limbs. Arms of our character are formed by obtuse angles. The legs look like two lines that taper down.
To finish the contours of the body, we need to connect our girl’s chest and pelvis with smooth lines. In the end, we should get a figure that is slightly similar to a pear. In this step, we outline the basic facial features.
We outline the basic contours of the arms and legs. We do this with long elongated cylinders and balls. The arms of the girl in our figure should not be wide or too embossed.
One of the structural features of a typical female figure is wide round hips. Legs should taper slightly downward. In the area where the hips and pelvis join, you can see contours that look like the letter “M”.
So now we can begin to outline the facial features of our heroine. In fact, you can give her any appearance according to your desire and imagination. We decided to draw large eyes, a small nose and puffy lips.
We outline the contours of the ears. The upper edge of the ear is located in the same plane with the eyebrows. The lower edge of the ear coincides with the tip of the nose.
Now we will depict the contours of the hairstyles of our beautiful girl. In fact, you can draw any hairstyle to your taste. We decided to choose a typical hairstyle that looks like a bunch of hair on the back of the head.
In this step, we give the finished look to the body of our girl. Add the contours of the bra and outline the contours of the navel.
We outline the contours of the arms. Avoid too strong bends so as not to make the figure of our heroine too powerful. In the area of the elbow joints there are barely noticeable extensions.
As a rule, drawing hands is a rather difficult task. In our case, it is quite simple because we do not need to draw fingers. Here we outline the small contours of the angular figures, these are fists. Add a small vertical line to each fist. Fists should not be too large.
So we continue the lesson on how to draw a female body. Draw legs once again to create the final contours. Outline the underwear.
So we are almost completing this drawing guide. All we need to do now is outline the contours of the small feet.
We always leave one step in order to evaluate the resulting picture and try to detect all errors and inaccuracies. Now we will remove the extra lines from the previous steps and evaluate what we see on our paper sheet.
Choose the necessary colors in this step to your taste. Avoid complex shadows and highlights. If you have not made mistakes in the previous steps, your drawing should look spectacular with basic coloring.
This lesson was created specifically for the training of drawing a human figure. In fact, it is very important to master the basics of drawing before embarking on more difficult tasks.
