Here's a great tutorial that I was so very eager to add to the site. I've literally spent five hours on this tutorial, getting it to the helpful perfection that will teach you “how to draw a body, step by step”. Though I haven't really mastered drawing a body perfectly, I wanted to compile what I've learned from my previous art years into this awesome tutorial. You'll find that drawing people, the body is the most difficult concept to achieve accurately. There is so many ways the body can be posed in, and it's very overwhelming. You'll view an artist that has great skill on spewing unique poses in such short time. It almost makes you so jealous and overwhelmed, that you lose the inspiration. The point is to keep practicing and constantly receiving inspiration from various sources. Whether it's music, Anime, comic books, or other artists, it becomes endless. Go down to the library and rent a few books that will give you ideas on different poses. It's essential to devour all the information, references, and tutorials as possible in order to progress as an artist. Keep a sketchbook that's labeled by years to look back at your progress. Believe it or not, looking back at improvements is the most relieving feeling to ever receive. Observing average people, the way they move, the way the anatomy works is also a recommended thing to do. Have a sketchbook with you at all times no matter where you go. You never know if you'll come across something you want to scribble down. Anyways, this lesson can apply to any type of body you want to master drawing. I don't include any super deformed buff characters, so flee away if that's what you're looking for. I really hope my efforts on this tutorial will pay off. Thank you so much for viewing this tutorial and please leave some feedback on how this has helped! Peace out and have fun learning “how to draw the body, step by step”!
