Step 1

First, consider the growth of our man – this parameter will be the same on all three angles. Recall, that the growth of an adult man is equal to the length of about 7 heads. As we have said, we draw a man from three different angles. First, draw the head – as you can see, it is drawn in a shape of an oval, or an inverted egg. Next, draw the neck – it looks like a simple line, as well as the spine. In the same way draw the shoulders, arms, and legs. We remind you that all the lines in this step should be very light.

Now let’s add volume to the stickman, to get the silhouette. The neck looks from all angles as a short cylinder, which is mounted to the head. Then draw a torso, which is similar to a modified cylinder. Try to emphasize the curves of the back, waist, and chest. The arms look like elongated cylinders. The groin area looks like a triangle. Legs – as well as the arms, look like cylinders. Notice that they taper in the area of ​​the knee and shins.

Yes, do not forget to mark the lines of the face (the horizontal line of the eyes and the vertical line of symmetry) on the first image. Also sketch out the lines of the hair, nose, and mouth.
