Well that does it for the old tutorials that I needed to submit. Now I can start uploading the new ones I did today. For my first “NEW” lesson I will show you how to draw dancing people or people dancing step by step. Believe it or not but, people really do want to learn from a lesson like this one. I really did have a lot of fun drawing out these two dancing characters because I got to use some of my new drawing and coloring techniques that I have been practices. Drawing people dancing may be a bit difficult to do because the male dancer has a hand around the back of the female dancer. This may be complex to draw because the hand needs to look like he is wrapping his hand around her waist. The other difficult part may be learning how to draw the dancing hands that are joined. This dance position is commonly seen in dance competitions, and many movies. The two dancing figures were drawn to look mature and series. The woman dancer is very attractive and the man dancer is drawn to resemble Val Kilmer. The reason why I chose to use Val Kilmer’s face for this guy is because I watched a movie called “Real Genus” and I have to say he was hilarious in that movie. If you haven’t seen the film yet I strongly recommend that you try and watch it. Anyways, not only will you learn how to draw dancing people, you will also learn how to draw a tuxedo and a ball gown. My favorite part of this drawing is the woman’s body. I think I drew it very nicely. All the steps are also laid out in a more efficient way so that it will be a whole lot easier to follow and learn from the steps. Learning how to draw dancing people will seem like a breeze even though I am placing it in the advanced section. I hope all of you that click on this tutorial will try it out because once you do, it will be impossible to stop. I shall return guys so stay on for a bit longer. I have also included an extra step that gives you a tip on how to draw hair strands as well so be sure to check that out too.

How to Draw Dancing People

how to draw dancing people step 1

STEP 1.

Let's get off on an easy foot shall we? You will first draw out the body frames for the two dancers. Start with two circles for the heads and then add the facial guidelines. Next draw out the torso of the female dancer and then her bottom or butt shape. Add the long lines for the gown and then draw a shoulder shape and a limb line for the arm.

Next, start sketching out the shapes and structure of each face starting with the lower portion which is the jaw and chin. You will then add the eye lines in both dancers and then start sketching out the dancers hair styles. Give the male a neck line and then draw out the beginning lines for their arms. Lastly add a long vertical line for the shape of his dancing body.

STEP 3.

This is the step where it gets to be a bot more difficult because you will be drawing more detailing shapes and lines. Start by drawing out the actual shape of their eyes, and then add a mouth line on the two dancers. You will sketch out both hair styles as you see here and make sure they are fully drawn out. Finish off the shaping of her face and then thicken the shape of the female dancers arm. Next, draw out the beginning shapes for their fingers which are clutched together and then the lining for his hand on her back. Add the curved lining for his tuxedo then move to the next drawing step.

Finish drawing the dancers hands that are holding and draw out the rest of his tuxedo coat and vest.

Add some detail to the fingers and then start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.
