K-5 How To Draw People
View my profile
What you'll need
There are many ways to draw people. Like handwriting, each person’s way of drawing is unique!
From 2D stick person to 3D- try adding 1 line to each stick. Then lengthen the arms and leg.
To make a 3D person without starting with a stick person, think about adding SHAPES together.
Draw lightly so you can erase. Change the shape of your people’s arms and legs to show movement.
Bend arm and leg lines to make people move! Sometimes they’ll need to bend across the body.
Drawing a person from the side: draw lightly so you can erase! Will he/she stand, move, or sit?
Add details to your character with your setting in mind.
