Step 1

We will draw a football player in motion. First of all, let’s sketch his skeleton, as you can see, it’s very simple. First, sketch the head and the line of the spine. On this line we place the thorax and the pelvis. With the help of simple lines, we sketch the arms and legs. By the way, in the lesson about how to draw a man, we talked in more detail about the proportions of a man.

In order to make it easier to draw details of the face, we will sketch two lines on the head. Next, sketch out the outlines of the neck and torso. With the help of very simple geometric figures, we sketch out the arms and legs. Note that in this step we draw everything very schematically, and used very light lines.

Using the intersecting lines from the previous step, sketch out the eyes, nose and mouth. Next, draw the outlines of the hair, the ear and face. With the help of very light lines, we sketch out clothes and a ball.

With the help of smooth and clear lines draw out the contours of the arms, taking into account all the lines of deltoids, biceps, triceps and muscles of the forearm under the clothes. Also on the clothes we need to draw folds in the area of the armpits and elbows. Draw the clenched fists and move next.

So, the football player drawing is almost complete, and we only need to add some shadows. As in other lessons, the first thing we do is determine the source of light.
