Practice drawing these cylinders even if you can't see the point of it yet.

The curved edges and the pattern are always parallel. Once you can draw a good circle without using a compass, you are ready to draw more exaggerated shapes.

Draw the other hand so that you can see it all. Don't draw it rotated back or held up in the air.

1. The frontal view (Basic) Game and Animation is not just the work of one individual. It involves the joint efforts of a group of people.Therefore everyone must be able to understand the characters' expressions. This front pose is a standard one that everyone can work from.

2. The view from above (Oblique view from behind) You must be able to draw things from the down-looking angle. Often you need to set the scene and show your characters in their environment. In directional terms, the view from above is used in scenes where the character is depressed. Drawing the character from behind increases the sadness of the scene.

Don't forget the parts that are not visible in the frontal view such as the underarms.

Draw the curve of the waist the opposite way to the way it is drawn from below.

Compare such things as the size of the head, the appearance of the neck and the shoulders, and the length of the arms with the frontal view in (1).
