Drawing Basics: Human Body Forms

By Aidan Han

You might think that because we’re so familiar with the shapes of the body, that they would be extra easy to draw. Ironically, they are the most difficult to draw precisely because we are so intimately familiar with them. If your lines are off just a little, the picture will look funny. You might get away with that drawing a tree, but not when drawing a human.

Honestly, this is a stress-free task that is easy to understand but hard to do. It requires me to focus so I won’t be thinking about multiple house chores that I need to finish for the rest of the day or how to pay next month’s rent. It’s a different type of thought to those that bounce around my minds in modern life, and it feels very healthy to give my mind this break.

  1. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was
    extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what
    I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still
    new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for beginner blog writers?

    I’d certainly appreciate it.


    1. My apologies for the delayed response. I am glad you’re enjoying my blog! Will you please specify your questions about what you’re looking for? Are you trying to find a blog theme that’s easier for you to handle and good enough to show your writings?
