With drawing the figure, you are encouraged to work from life instead of from a photo. Choose a model and draw them in different poses (they can be clothed or unclothed), or go to the park or coffee shop and try to capture the movement and gestures of passersby. If playing with a friend, take turns drawing each other in different poses.

Artist Tip: Don’t fixate on one part of the figure, treat each part equally. Figure drawing can help an artist hone fundamental visual skills that are transferable to almost any medium!
