This is an unnatural pose. The character doesn't look to be standing properly in the space he is occupying (the scene). When you sketch, as already explained, start by imagining which direction each part ot the body is facing as if the body has been cut into cross-sections (that is, how they look). No normal human being could possibly stand with their feet like this. They look twisted.

The way the arm is joined at the shoulder looks odd

The muscular definition of the chest looks strange.

Human Body Movements Pencil Drawing

The face arrangement is basically fine although some minor adjustments need to be made. Definitely draw in the right ear even though only a tiny bit will be visible. Practice drawing the hand and fingers.

Take care with the clothes' design. The right breast is defined but it looks as if she hasn't got a left one. Use shading to define both breasts.

Be audacious and soften the movement of the hair and clothes fluttering in the breeze.

If you shade in the inside of the sleeves, the material won't look paper-thin.

It would be better to put highlights in this character's hair. Also, it looks dry and dishevelled unless the hair is separated into several bunches.

Too many wrinkles in the legwarmers.

Armor 300 CharactersTypes Noses CharacterDimensional Nose

• Make the nose look more three-dimensional.

• The suit of armor doesn't look three-dimensional, or that he is actually wearing it. Make it look more three-dimensional by drawing the contours and shading,

• There are too many inappropriate wrinkles in the clothes and there are none where there should be. With this type of character, drawing a well-defined outline is more important than concentrating on the wrinkles.

• The sword on his back is obscure. Pay more attention to it because it is this character's symbol.

The shape of the left foot is unclear. It is a very difficult angle to draw, but if you observe the real thing it is easy. Have a good look at real feet.

The abdomen is too long for a man.

The torso is undersized for the character.

Body Shapes For Men Poseing

The shins on both legs are too long.

The shape of the left foot is unclear. It is a very difficult angle to draw, but if you observe the real thing it is easy. Have a good look at real feet.

The midline for the body is warped.

The abdomen is too long for a man.

The torso is undersized for the character.

The eyes are not balanced.

The shins on both legs are too long.

It Is difficult to make this kind of very simple pose look three-dimensional. The original looks like a flimsy paper doll because all the lines are the same thickness and the drawing is too symmetrical. When you are drawing arms, the curved outlines are supposed to be different for the inside and outside. But in this picture they are symmetrical and any sense of realism is lost. Try and erase from your mind the preconception that "Legs are thicker than arms, and thighs thicker than calves." In a muscular man like this character, the thickest part of his calves would be about the same thickness as his thighs.

Now, It's Time for the Real Test.

Legs And Thigh The Thickest

• Meaningless lines are drawn on the thighs and calves. No matter how athletic she is, this is overdoing it.

• Take care with the directions of the arms and the back of the hand. Pose in front a mirror to look at how certain poses would look.

• Compared with the upper body, the lower body is too sparse in detail. You need to draw with more feeling for the subject. Don't draw pointed fold lines.

• If you color the fringe that falls over the face, it looks too heavy. It would be better to divide the hair up and have it sticking out.

• Draw this pose bolder because the original one doesn't go all the way.

If the hand is simplified, still consider the shape carefully. The hands are too big in relation to the wrists.

Apart from the left eye, the parts of the face are too far over.

No breasts.

The right arm is too short.

This looks unnatural because the ankle and instep are tensed. Unless you deliberately want to bend the feet, don't draw them like this because it looks unnatural.

The legs are different lengths.

It is difficult to decipher exactly what this drawing means. At a glance, it doesn't look as if this character is about to jump up energetically (as the revised version looks as if she is about to do). There is something odd about the design. But more than that, the pose was a wrong choice in the first place. A jump is a momentary pose that lasts for a split second. It is what is called a moving picture in animation (a still picture between a move from one pose to the next). Therefore when a beginner decides on this kind of pose for a drawing exercise, it is highly likely that that the result will look unstable.

A flat buttocks. Pinch the waist in some more and shape the hips out.

Don't draw strange contours on the thighs. Also, the thighs are too long.

It looks strange to have the foot this big.

Exercise Character Drawing
Checklist

• It looks as if the character holding something was a second thought. If you want to use objects to enhance the character's individualism, then more planning is necessary.

• It is unnatural to hold a gun in the right hand when there is already one in the gun holster. It is really difficult to draw someone holding a gun, so just draw it sitting in the holster.

• The hairstyle is rather obscure. Draw a more distinct style.

• The holster and the belt have not been drawn in enough detail. The holster in particular is an important accessory so make sure you draw it more carefully.

The arms are different lengths.

The axis running through the middle of the body is out of line.

Both hands are too small and oddly shaped.

The weight is too much on the left foot.

Clothing Drawings

The feet are too small.

The weight is too much on the left foot.
