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.
The chest appears less muscular and is smaller, as are the legs. Young children usually don’t have sharp chins.
Although drawing a man might be tough, it’s a good practice in trying to get the proportions right. You’ll get more lessons on how to draw a Human Figure with time, including drawing eyes in detail. I assure you that you will learn how to draw humans and animals a lot quicker if you do so step-by-step. The main thing is to properly sketch the contours of the head, shoulders, arms, and legs. Then gradually add details to the image.
On this page, I recommend the steps to drawing a full-sized man in pencil. As you might already know, drawing a Human Face might be challenging, as only artists with lots of experience can do so with ease. Our art lessons are intended primarily for kids, so there is no need to put too much detail into the realistic Eyes and other facial features. Just do the best you can! 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.
Drawing a human body is a challenging project, but here are some simple steps to get you started.
Sketch the wire frame of the human body with these basic shapes and lines.
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.

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.

Be careful not to smudge it. Use good color pencils and make sure you erase the pencil when you outline with pen. Make sure the ink is dry too.

You draw male body parts like you would draw anything else: do research, have a picture of a male body for reference, sketch guidelines, draw over them, and then erase them so you can make it more in your own style.
So let’s begin by drawing a man in a quadrilateral with an aspect ratio of 3:4. In the center of the figure, draw a long straight line, slightly longer than the longitudinal side of the rectangle. Draw a line on top of the oval for shoulders. Outline the person’s T-shirt, as our person is wearing summer clothes.
Try using lines and measurements. After you put your first eye in, use a light pencil and a ruler to draw lines across the top and bottom of the eye. Then, measure the width of the eye. The inside of the second eye should begin one eye’s width from the first one.
For separate sized shoulders, use different-sized circles to help draw the width of the body. For the chest, draw a small hill above the shoulder wire frame, and draw a smooth way down, making sure it isn’t too long.
Sketch additional shapes as a guide to create the human figure.
Erase excess edges from your drawing and your person might appear to come to life! Be careful in erasing the old eraser contour lines. If you accidentally touch a pencil line with the eraser, draw this site again. This step is the easiest and most interesting because with just a little effort on your part, the man in your drawing seems to come alive. Just draw three simple parts: the neckline, the shirtsleeves and pants outline, and the bottom line.
How do I use perspective and make them tilt their heads? Is there a certain shape or guideline for me to use?
You could tilt the paper a bit and draw the head. Then you may draw the body as shown straight.
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.
