How to draw bodies
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.
