How to draw bod­ies

Photoshop Creative - - BRUSH TOOL -

Un­der­stand­ing the ba­sics of hu­man anatomy is vi­tal for any bud­ding artist, so get study­ing! You can speed things up by break­ing the body down into shapes on your sketch layer: ovals for heads, boxes for the chest and stom­ach, and so on. The ‘light­ning tech­nique’ is a great way to draw arms and legs quickly. All this means is that a leg, for ex­am­ple, can be rep­re­sented as three lines: an out­side curve on the thigh, in­side curve on the knee, and out­side curve on the calf. All that the ‘light­ning bolt’ does is con­nect the three curves.
