Let’s continue drawing a human figure and draw a circle for the head with the neck, shoulders, collarbones, and knees. First you need to draw an oval for the head, then shoulders and separate ovals for the thighs. This step is relatively easy because even a small child can draw an oval. Plus, it doesn’t have to be exact size, except for the head. Did you notice that many of the lines in the figure are drawn rather casually? I deliberately draw only rough outlines at this point because most of them will be erased in later steps, after they are perfected.
To draw a person of a full growth we can use different ways. Now let’s find out the basic steps to drawing a human figure. The most common mistake in drawing a human being is to distort the proportions, as in make the hands short relative to the rest of the body, make the head too big, etc. In order to avoid this, it might be useful to divide your drawing into sections. For the purpose of our drawing, a human body can be split into seven circular sections including the neck. Here, we’ll draw a person in another way, but keep this technique in mind to help you maintain the proportions of a human body. We need to figure out a few basic steps to construct a human body. Man is composed of head supported by the neck, shoulders with collarbone, chest, abdomen, legs, and arms. Let’s add all of these parts one by one to the figure.
You should draw them as large or as small as you would like to. Make sure that they are proportionate to the rest of the body.

Moving on to the next step, you might feel tentative about your drawing so far because it doesn’t really look like a figure of a man. However, if you draw two more circles for elbows and feet and two curved lines on each side of a human body and connect them to their knees, we are suddenly getting somewhere. Referring to my sketches, draw the circles for shoulders and elbows and then draw hands. I did not finish drawing the hands here but you are welcome to do so in your own drawing. You can have your person holding an object. Also, it is not difficult to draw legs, just focus on getting the feet right. In this step, be sure to double-check the proportion of the arms, the legs, and the torso. Please be aware that it may be harder to correct mistakes from now on, so make your changes now.
Draw some basic shapes to represent the parts of the body by using a pencil. Circles, rectangles, ovals and triangles can be used.For the varieties of human figures, you can also use different kinds and sizes of circles and ovals, etc.
For example, to draw a fat man, you can use a big oval for his body part.To draw a short girl, you can use small and short ovals, rectangles and circles.According to your imagination and creativity, you can alter or use different kinds of shapes to make your drawings funny or strange.
Plan your drawing. Draw some vertical and horizontal lines to plan your drawing. Planning is not so important for the proportion of the drawing. Measure the figure by seeing how many times the head fits in the body height.
The average adult human is eight heads tall. But for shorter people maybe 7 or if they are on the taller end maybe 9, but usually no higher than 9.

It is important to learn how to draw portrait of a man using #2 pencil. Some people have a habit of using dotted lines as guidelines, which they later erase. My word of advice is to learn how to draw a line in one motion without being afraid to make a mistake. You have to visualize the final image while you are drawing a human figure, especially of a man in motion. Surprisingly, the most important thing in visual art of any kind is not accurate proportions and outlines of the image, but the mood or character of the person conveyed in a drawing though his or her facial expression and/or body language.
Draw the details of the drawing i.e. clothes, accessories. You can use a pen to finalize your drawing. You can put your desired clothes and colors.

Draw lightly as you can. So later when your sketch is correct you can draw over the lighter lines with a darker one. It is recommended when starting out to use a reference, either from photos from magazines, newspapers, the internet or if possible a real person.
