How To Draw Realistic People
How To Draw Realistic People
Watch this actual demo on how to draw realistic people by only using basic geometric shapes. Try and draw one for yourself.
Okay, realistic figure drawing - I'm going to show you how to draw a kneeling man. And you just need a pencil and a rubber for this because we're just going to work in pencil. First of all, you need to create an oval shape that's kind of leaning slightly to one side, like so, and then underneath that, a kind of an angled square.
Take your time to position this correctly because it will become one's crucial measurement later on, okay. Next, we're going to write, kind of an oval shape again angled in this corner here, and I may very well have to adjust what I'm doing as I go along as well. I'm already doing that over, way a bit.
Bring it in a bit on the side, okay, and then the next shape is very strange, really, a line across here, then a line coming out here, and all these will make sense in a while. Hope you begin to understand what it's all about. Next I'm going to do at this stage, indicate a line down on what will be the face.
Put a mark in for the nose and the mouth and that's what I'm doing for the moment. Then I'm creating another angled shape running across, like so, and then we're going to do a square shape, very lightly, there. Okay, I'm going to give my kneeling man a hat so I'm just going to make a mark across the face like this.
I'm going to join up here and they will eventually become the shoulders, and then I'm going to create a shape running across here, this will be one hand. Then we need to fill in that, that is the other arm, and a shape underneath. Again, just really, basic block shapes I'm putting in here, all quite angular at the moment.
We can soften them at a later stage. And next, I've got a line running down here which connects up to this line down here, and then I'm going to create a line running across here like this and then a line down here. Now, all of these don't really make much sense at the moment probably to you.
And then the last shape I'm going to create is a strange lucky square shape here, and these are all guidelines obviously, at the moment. Now, we're going to go over those guidelines and really start shaping thick out. We've got perspective to think about here.
Okay, so it's coming towards you so it is going to be quite large if you compare it for instance to the size of the head. It's almost the same size as the head. Now, we're going to the front foot there, like so.
Then we'll go back up to the face because at the moment, he hasn't really got much of a face. We're going to put a quick hat in, like so, and then indication of the face, the mouth, and obviously, his face is going to be in shadow because he's under hat, like so. Now, let's add a little bit more to this here because it's kind of meant to represent a camera.
He's actually kneeling down, filming something, okay. Add a little bit of shadowing. So, just by using basic geometric shapes, you can actually create a figure, in any post, really, once you apply these geometric shapes.
So, there he is. .
